This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. For two decades, models like Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Gisele Bündchen, Naomi Campbell, Adriana Lima, and Karlie Kloss have been parading down the VS runway in everything from full, furry Angel wings to itty bitty million dollar bras, while big-time performers like Kanye West and the Spice Girls serenade them. Here, 65 of the best, craziest, and most memorable moments in Victoria's Secret history.
The very first Victoria's Secret Fashion Show took place at the Plaza Hotel.
And they made fashion statements from the get-go: sunglasses inside! Boots with undies!
Sexy bridal wear!
Naomi made her VS debut on the 1996 runway.
Did you know Rebecca Romijn was a regular on the early VS runways?
Naomi channeled a boxer in this not-so-practical bra (and robe!).
Tyra made her Angel debut on the runway in 1997.
Nothing says "Happy Valentine's Day" like, well, like that.
Tyra was one of the models to wear the very first set of Angel wings during the 1998 show.
She is like the most fantastic golden phoenix.
For the 2000 show, Victoria's Secret took the production to Cannes.
Heidi Klum wore the first-ever fantasy bra on a Victoria's Secret runway: "The Heavenly Star Bra", worth $12.5 million.
It's like a heart hot plate for your hoo-ha!
What Santa really looks like under that beard.
Seriously, how would someone even put this on?
Naomi, the original firebird!
Oh what we wouldn't give to have been at this Destiny's Child performance.
Before models went through the full body-buff-spray-tan-glow process they do now, Ana Beatriz walked the runway modeling some very visible tan lines.
Like the most gorgeous avant garde Big Bird.
Tyra snagged her lingerie train on something as she stepped onto the runway. Which is one argument for not wearing a lingerie train.
Moves like Jagger.
Heidi walked the runway in some of the hugest angel wings ever.
Karolina, Gisele, and Alessandra doing their best Mean Girls impression.
Gisele holds the record for modeling the most expensive fantasy bra ever: the $15 million "Red Hot Fantasy Bra" in 2000, which featured even more bling than this spicy red number she sported in 2005.
Sexy LED undies and kisses on the runway.
Because this is a totally practical soldier uniform.
Miranda, the sexy snow bunny, made her VS runway debut in 2006 and later replaced Gisele as an Angel in 2007.
Sexy college graduate?
