The highly anticipated 2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show took place last night at the 69th Regiment Armory in New York and all I can say is WOW! Dozens of gorgeous models took to the stage in a spectacular parade of costumes and lingerie while being serenaded by the likes of Nicki Minaj, Maroon 5, Kanye West and Jay Z. From the cute and flirty, to the exotic, these angels shut it down!
There was music, glitter, and a whole lot of skin, but I can show you, much better than I can tell you. Take a look at these glamorous girls of Victoria's Secret after the jump.

The masked model is actually wearing a 24 karat gold facial mold by skincare professionals, KollagenX. This sample is from the company's line of beauty products that promise instant results with its "luxuriously enhanced" technology. The product was reportedly inspired by the beauty regimen of Cleopatra who was thought to have slept with a golden mask to preserve her youth.
But is everything that glitters good for the skin?
Nicki Minajis pretty in pink pleather, while Ricky Martin is "living la Viva Glam" in the latest campaign for MAC Cosmetics. The twosome (Minaj à deux?) are among a star studded list of brand ambassadors for the Viva Glam Collection, which is not only one of the hottest line of cosmetics on the market, but also supports the MAC AIDS Fund. All proceeds from the sale of these products go directly to the charity.
This sizzling shot of Nik and Rik are already heating up internet. Check out some of the other Viva Glam campaigns of years past.
This summer, Mc Donald's helped around 4000 lucky onlookers in Sylvan Lake, Alberta to "cool off with $1 Drinks".
Canadian advertising agency, Cossette-Vancouver, launched a very clever promotion for the fast food chain's "Dollar Drink Days" by erecting a giant ice sculpture encasing thousands of one dollar coins in the shape of the famous Golden Arches. But the thirsty party guests had to work hard for their dollars.

Can you believe your eyes? The piercing peepers you see before you are glowing. But this is more than the typical 'twinkle in the eye', or some run of the mill Halloween contacts. These are, to my knowledge, the first line of contact lenses made with actual gold and diamonds. Right.

Whether you're a jewelry enthusiast investing in timeless treasures, picking out the perfect engagement ring, or hoping to start a "chain reaction" with some show-stopping neck wear, you have to start by knowing a little bit about diamonds.
When buying diamonds, education is paramount. Far too often, people are blinded by so-called bling without knowing what they are purchasing.
