You Don’t Have to Be a Victoria’s Secret Angel to Appreciate this Lingerie

Taken with the decadent looks on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show runway? You’re not alone. From Bella Hadid’s envy-inducing silk cloak to Alessandra Ambrosio’s wings, and from Lady Gaga’s showstopping performance to Nicola Formichetti’s VS Pink collaboration, there was plenty to awe. So, inspired by the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, we’ve mined the W archives for the best of slip dresses, bodysuits, corsetry, and more. There’s no better way to start thinking about the holidays.
