Each year, the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show doubles as a party for celebrities and some of the brand's most famous angels and a chance for the lingerie brand to show off its newest — and most gem-studded — styles. This year, models like Adriana Lima, Chanel Iman and Karolina Kurkova strutted down the catwalk as pop stars [artist id="3274550"]Katy Perry[/artist] and [artist id="1240040"]Akon[/artist] serenaded them.
Perry, getting into the spirit of the evening, donned Todd Thomas-designed outfits that looked like lingerie, according to UsMagazine.com. She sang her power anthem "Firework" in a purple leotard-and-bustle combo, then wore a yellow, heart-covered PVC minidress and thigh-high boots for a medley of "Teenage Dream," "Hot N Cold" and "California Gurls."
According to the Wall Street Journal, Akon performed his hit "Angel" with Lima — who was wearing a bra encrusted in Diamiani diamonds and sapphires that's valued at $2 million — by his side.

Newsreports that the celebrities on hand to check out the eye-catching designs included Maxwell, Russell Simmons, Debbie Harry, Malin Akerman, Maroon 5's Adam Levine and Kings of Leon's Jared Followill. Both Levine and Followill are romantically attached to some Angels; Levine dates Anne Vyalitsyna, while Followill is engaged to Lily Aldridge.
Perry was seen on the step and repeat in a flower-petal strapless top and hot pink skirt, which she paired with bright blue shoes. "Backstage @ the Victoria Secret fashion show... I BET y'all would love a few twit pics today :) these ladies r jaw dropping #VSFashionShow!" Perry tweeted before the show. Afterwards she added, "I [heart] NYC!... First time I've heard #FIREWORK!!! On the radio! On KTU!!! GO GO GO"
The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show will air on CBS on November 30.
