It took a fair bit of cheek - and not a little phlegm on a freezing Paris night - for the brash US lingerie brand Victoria's Secret to hold its first-ever fashion show in the city that invented sexy underwear.
And true to the brand's brazen style Malik Hooker Color Rush Jersey , the spectacle featured a (slightly wounded) megastar, history-struck A-lister models - and a jewel-encrusted multi-million-dollar ""fantasy"" bra.
Lady Gaga - the star draw for the annual extravaganza famous for bringing kitschy Las Vegas glamour to the catwalk - picked up a ""couple of bruises from (the) dance rehearsal,"" she told her 64 million Twitter followers.
The show's mostly US models said they felt ""goosebumps"" - and not just because of the sub-freezing temperatures.
They were also stepping out under the hallowed dome of the Grand Palais, the Art Deco temple where luxury French label Chanel holds its couture shows.
Karl Lagerfeld Tyquan Lewis Color Rush Jersey , the forthright Chanel designer, was unfortunately not on hand to give his view of the proceedings.
Three of his favorite models - Gigi and Bella Hadid, and Kendall Jenner from the Kardashian dynasty - were among the brand's ""angels,"" so called because the models wear wings on the runway.
The 35-year-old Brazilian beauty Adriana Lima struck a blow for older models Kemoko Turay Color Rush Jersey , walking her 15th show on the pink-themed set.
The mother-of-two had earlier said she keeps in shape with porridge for breakfast and a buckwheat drink before bed.
""Eating buckwheat before bedtime actually helps you burn calories while you sleep,"" she said.
Another landmark was Jasmine Tookes becoming the ""first black woman to sport the Victoria's Secrets Fantasy Bra in nine years,"" after Selita Ebanks and Tyra Banks.
She closed the show modeling the emerald-and diamond-encrusted ""Bright Night Fantasy Bra,"" which costs $3 million.
The 25-year-old Californian had earlier batted away allegations that she had bleached her skin for the show.
""Are you kidding me! Who in the world does that?"" she posted on Instagram.
""Lighting is everything... not to mention I'm way darker in the summer and much lighter towards the winter. My skin tone changes all the time just like everyone else Braden Smith Color Rush Jersey ,"" she added.
Former Swedish professional basketball player Elsa Hosk also made her debut to promote the brand's new sportwear range.
Although Victoria's Secret has nearly 1,000 shops in the US with $7.6 billion sales last year, it is almost unknown in France, where there is a long tradition of high quality lingerie.
Among French fashion figures who attended was Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing Darius Leonard Color Rush Jersey , a favorite of singers Rihanna and Beyonce.
And in marked contrast to the usual Paris fashion shows, even if the models were not wearing much they all had smiles on their faces.
""It was very much an America-style fireworks show that shouldn't be taken too seriously,"" one not overly impressed guest called Ronan told AFP.
The star-studded show, which will be broadcast in 190 countries and regions from December 5 Quenton Nelson Color Rush Jersey , is being seen as an attempt by the label to break into the lucrative European market.
The hype surrounding the event began months ago, with the brand launching the hashtag #trainlikeanangel on social media, showing the models working out to get in shape for the catwalk.
Victoria's Secret has regularly faced criticism for presenting women with an unrealistic body imagine, with models admitting that they are on special diets for weeks before the show.
