Here’s what viewers have to look forward to this year:

Besides the mix of great music and half-naked supermodels wearing the latest in lingerie costumes, the night was full of extra special moments, including when Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine escorted his own girlfriend, model Anne Vyalitsyna, down the runway and planted a kiss on her cheek.

However, the most exciting moment of the show was when Miranda Kerr stepped out on the runway wearing this year’s Fantasy Bra, a bra dazzling with over 3,000 gems, with over 200 carats, worth nearly $2.5 million. Kerr donned one of almost 70 looks were showcased in during the show.

Kerr and The Fantasy Treasure Bra reportedly took the runway during “Angels Aquatic,” segment, one of six themes highlighted during the night. During this segment, models-turned-mermaid goddesses walked the runway reportedly wearing wings (that at times, weigh up to 50 pounds a pair) and sexy shells.

The Fantasy Bra reportedly took over 500 hours to complete and, even more special, Long Island’s own London Jewelers provided the jewels—London Jewelers was also named the official jeweler of the show.

“London Jewelers is proud to be the OFFICIAL Jeweler of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which airs on CBS..,” tweeted London Jewelers.

Viewers were not only excited to see Kerr strut her stuff sporting the most highly-anticipated bra of the year, but also to see her in general, as it was also her first post-baby catwalk—Kerr and hubby Orlando Bloom recently welcomed a baby boy, Flynn, the first child for both.

Million-dollar bras, sexy supermodels and great performances. Get the popcorn, grab a seat on the couch and get ready to admire the costumes, enjoy the performances and envy the models. The show airs on Tues., Nov. 29 at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
