I defy any guy my age or younger to tell me that they didnt come of age peeking in the Victoria's Secret Catalog at some point. Its just as much a part of Americana as baseball and apple pie. Well in recent years they made those spring to life in a fashion show:

The company made history in 1999 with the first web broadcast of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show which drew 1.5 million viewers, with many others unable to view the show. The fashion show was advertised on the Super Bowl.

The fashion show is generally held in the New York Armory on Lexington Avenue. It contains mostly underwear and bras. The show has since evolved into a lavish event with elaborate costumed-lingerie, varying music and set design according to the different themes running within the show. The show attracts hundreds of celebrities and entertainers, with special performers and/or acts every year. The giant angel wings worn by the models, as well as other wings of various forms and sizes such as butterfly, peacock, or devil wings, are Victoria's Secret's fashion trademark. The fashion show is also a meeting of today's supermodels, who are always posing in the middle, after the final walk. In this year's fashion show the supermodels Gisele B√ľndchen, Karolina Kurkova, Adriana Lima have been attended.

In 2004, the show was canceled after a wardrobe malfunction at the Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show broadcast by CBS caused Justin Timberlake to bare Janet Jackson's breast. In the past, most of the clothing exhibited was not available to the general public, but in 2005 the show was specifically redesigned to feature clothing available to the general public through the catalogue.

The Victoria's Secret Angels are the spokespersons for Victoria's Secret. Past Angels include Tyra Banks and Stephanie Seymour, Banks made her final runway walk on Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2005 which marks the end of her modeling career. Current Victoria's Secret Angels include Selita Ebanks, Adriana Lima, Gisele Bundchen, Izabel Goulart, Alessandra Ambrosio, Karolina Kurkova, and Heidi Klum, who will probably come back from a baby-pause.
