Rihanna took to the catwalk during the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in New York Wednesday, proving she can really rock even when surrounded by the world's hottest supermodels.
The annual celebration of skimpy outfits and lean bodies has become a pre-holiday tradition for the underwear retailer and this year featured the talents of not only Rihanna, but also Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars. All three artists performed as models clad in barely-there ensembles paraded around them.
In deference to the recent hardships faced by many New Yorkers, the show began with an announcement that Victoria's Secret and CBS had each made a donation to Sandy relief efforts, and also to thank the National Guard members based out of the Lexington Ave. Armory that has been the location of the event over the past few years.

Victoria's Secret regulars Miranda Kerr, Adriana Lima, Doutzen Kroes and Alessandra Ambrosio - adorned with a $2.5 million jeweled "floral fantasy bra," no less - were on hand to strut their stuff in outfits divided into six categories: Circus, Dangerous Liaisons, Pink Is Us, Silver Screen Angels, Angels in Bloom and Calendar Girls. The latter allowing Bruno Mars the opportunity to serenade one model for each month of the year.
CBS will air the hour-long special on Dec. 4 at 10 p.m. ET, but those desperate for a sneak peek can check out our gallery of hot looks hot off the runway.
