Last night the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, taped back in early November, aired in an hour-long TV special featuring musical performances by Rihanna, Justin Bieber, and Bruno Mars. Bruno brought his signature crooning and high energy to the runway with “Locked Out of Heaven” and “Young Girls,” while Bieber showed off his smooth dance moves and interacted with the models in a giant pinball machine while singing his singles “Beauty and a Beat” and “As Long As You Love Me.” Rihanna got into the spirit spirit of the catwalk by performing her new single “Fresh Off the Runway” in her own lingerie getup.
But the real talent of the night were the sexy “Angels” who walked the runway in an array of revealing lingerie costumes. This year’s crop of heavenly creatures featured Doutzen Kroes, Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldrige, and Erin Heatherton, among others. This year, we couldn’t help but notice that the girls walked the runway in lingerie outfits that were almost dead ringers for well-known pop culture looks.
From Katniss Everdeen‘s “Girl on Fire” to the floating house from Up, a cheerleader from Bring It On to Beetlejuice, here are 15 looks that evoked pop culture’s best when they hit the runway last night at the VS fashion show.
