The annual pink-robe party (and countdown) is officially over. And while the full show has been aired on TV but yet to be released on its YouTube channel (patience, guys!), we got a glimpse of this year’s extravagant lingerie collection and boy, is it drop-dead gorgeous! From stunning Swarovski-encrusted intimates to match the glittering Grand Palais runway in Paris to Jasmine Tookes doing the mega-watt Fantasy Bra justice, the catwalk was cascading with spectacular innerwear sets, svelte figures and harmonious soundtracks (in that order). Both veteran Angels like Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio as well as newbies like Bella Hadid and Irina Shayk stepped up the glamour in thigh-high boots, sky-high heels and of course, high-flying wings that stole the show! Below, we round up 20 of our favourite looks from 2016’s holiday spectacle:

Adriana strikes a pose like a pro in her colour-contrasting combo

Alessandra’s strappy lace-bodice fits like second-skin!

Barbara Fialho gives her sheer pom-pom-trimmed skirt a whimsical twirl

Gigi looks every inch the seductive bombshell in this all-black ensemble

Bella stuns in this shimmery sequinned coordinates

Kendall Jenner steps out in a monochrome combo of sheer scallop panels and lace-up details for a kinky, French-maid flair

Is this the prettiest set of wings or what? Made of satin bows with ribbon ends hanging loosely, Grace-Elizabeth exudes a sweet demeanour in this sporty get-up

Devon Windsor wows the crowd with her light-reflecting psychedelic disc

The Bright Night Fantasy Bra 2016 in all its gemstone glory worn by Jasmine!

Irina is definitely a ‘star-girl’ in The Weeknd’s Abel Tesfaye’s eyes

Elsa Hosk has nothing to hide here – certainly not that statement-making dragon extension!

Taylor Hill looks like a mythical princess in this regal palette

Josephine Skriver gets all glammed-up in a sparkling head-to-toe undergarment set, complete with a dazzling fringe cape

Joan Smalls rocks a multi-coloured cape inspired by ethnic prints with matching suede boots

We can only imagine how fluid the dreamy wings behind Sara Sampaio’s back moved during the show!

Kendall oozes both a fiery spirit and an icy-cool queen vibe in this primary-hued ensemble

Chic tassels, tribal patterns and intricate beading adorn this vivid masterpiece worn by ‘It’ girl Gigi

Some things never get old. Case in point: Adriana’s signature ‘smize’ that brings whatever she wears to life (16 years and counting!)

We always knew sequinned, see-through panels and fanned-out feathers could work – and Maria Borges proved our point!

Taylor tantalises with her bedroom eyes and a fail-proof combo (lace, leather and sheer fabric) that says ‘sensual’ all-over.
