-- Music and fashion have started to take center stage at CBS'
Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, as some of the world's top models begin
to walk the catwalk for Tuesday's one-hour lingerie-filled TV special.
Taped Nov. 8 in New York, the 2012 event features Victoria Secret
"Angels" Doutzen Kroes, Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Candice Swanepoel,
Lily Aldrige, Erin Heatherton, among other models.
This year's star-studded special kicked off with an announcer noting
that Victoria's Secret and CBS had each donated to superstorm Sandy
relief efforts. The announcement also thanked the National Guard members
based out of the Lexington Avenue Armory in Manhattan, where the annual
show takes place.
The 2012 special also includes performances by Justin Bieber, Rihanna
and Bruno Mars, who sing alongside Victoria's Secret models.
"It's like a dream come true," Bieber said before the show. "I would
rather be here than anywhere in the world." Shortly after the show's
taping, there were reports that Bieber was cozying up with Victoria's Secret model Barbara Palvin.

Created by London Jewelers, it features amethysts, rubies, sapphires
and diamonds, including a 20-carat white diamond in the center.
