Elle Macpherson is headed down the aisle! The 49-year-old supermodel is engaged to billionaire developer Jeffrey Soffer, People.com reports, and we can’t wait to see what she picks to wear for her big day. This is the woman who came to be known as “The Body” for her incredible, well, everything, which means she can pretty much pick whatever gown she wants and look fabulous. But, since we’re particularly inspired, we went ahead and chose five designs that reflect her go-to red-carpet silhouettes, from mermaid trains to thigh-high slits. Click through to see the wedding gowns we’d love to see on the bride-to-be when she says “I do.”
CBS got a big dose of sexy last night when it aired the Victoria’s Secret fashion show! The hour-long special featured 65 looks modeled by 37 different runway stars, who all danced down the catwalk to musical performances by Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, and Rihanna. The show featured six different lingerie categories, with Angel Adriana Lima kicking off the show with Circus, followed by Dangerous Liaisons, Calendar Girls, Pink Is Us, Silver Screen Angels, and Angels in Bloom (the latter of which featured Alessandra Ambrosio in the $2.5 million Floral Fantasy Bra). “I enjoy every second on the runway,” Ambrosio told InStyle.com at the viewing party in New York last night. “I even walked a little slower, to have a little more time on the runway.” InStyle.com was on site when the show taped in New York City, and we’re sharing all the fun photos with you—click through the gallery for more behind-the-scenes Victoria’s Secret action! Because, is one hour on TV really enough?

CBS will air the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show at 10/9c, which will showcase 37 models in 65 lingerie looks, sashaying down the runway to live music performed by Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, and Rihanna. “It’s a dream come true!” Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio told InStyle.com of her experience, which was made only so much better by the fact she modeled the $2.5 million Floral Fantasy Bra. “This is most desirable, most beautiful, most known show in the world. Every year it gets bigger and better!” And she’s right, it was big! The pieces were broken up into six groups—Circus, Dangerous Liaisons, Calendar Girls, Pink Is Us, Silver Screen Angels, Angels in Bloom.

With all the preparation it took for the Victoria’s Secret Angels to get their bodies ready for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (ahem, shown), Miranda Kerr is quick to tell you she’s not stuffing herself with cake, sugar, and treats as a celebration. “To be honest, [junk food] isn’t really for me,” she told InStyle.com at last night’s launch party for photographer Russell James’s new book, Nomad Two Worlds in New York City (Kerr is featured in the tome). “I’m just healthy and I like to be that way. I don’t deprive myself. If I want something, I’ll have a little bit. It’s not like ‘Oh, now I get to go eat a burger.’ It’s more like, ‘Let’s party! Let’s dance!’” And she’ll have more to toast to soon enough—the show airs December 4th at 10/9c on CBS, and Kerr will be watching. “I’m sure I’ll be with all the girls celebrating,” she said. Who wants in?

Victoria’s Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo didn’t have to say one word to make a statement at the after-party for the VS Fashion Show last night! After switching out of her runway lingerie, the Namibian model covered up with a statement-making dress, literally. ”I love this,” she told InStyle.com as she showed off her outfit, a Moschino piece from the ’90s with the words “You Can Dress Me Up! But You Can’t Take Me Out!” on it. OK, we get the message! Tell us: Do you like this look?

This year marks the fourth time Chinese model Liu Wen walked in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but 2012 is different than any of her past experiences, thanks to a few dozen hand-painted tattoos. “There were tattoos everywhere!” the 24-year-old told InStyle.com at the show’s after-party, where she showed off a successfully-cleaned tattoo-free body. “It took six hours to put on the tattoos and it took thirty minutes to take it off. I took it off backstage, rubbing alcohol all over.” The airbrush makeup artists behind Temptu created the hearts, mermaids, birds, butterflies and other designs for her turn down the runway, led by tattoo artist Stephanie Tamez. So, was it worth it? “It was great!” she said. “Great models, great stage, I was smiling through the whole thing!”

Months of preparation, weeks of fittings, days of rehearsals, and hours of beauty primping all led up to forty minutes hard-to-resist fun for last night’s taping of the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in New York. “It’s a dream come true!” Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio told InStyle.com of her experience, which was made only so much better by the fact she modeled the $2.5 million Floral Fantasy Bra. “This is most desirable, most beautiful, most known show in the world.
