NEW YORK — An emotional Adriana Lima bowed her head in thanks and crossed her hands over her heart as she made her 18th and final runway walk in the annual holiday Victorias Secret Fashion Show, her long white feather "angel wings" gently blowing as the crowd cheered.

What a look! Josephine Skriver flashed her incredibly taut abs while walking around with parachute wings during the Victorias Secret Fashion Show in New York City on Thursday

A tribute video played Thursday during taping of the extravaganza, declaring Lima "the greatest angel of all time" while Fatboy Slims "Praise You" played.

Amazing: The 25-year-old beauty sported two extremely showstopping looks for the runway show, including one which saw her walk around with a humongous parachute

The Strokes, Shawn Mendes, The Chainsmokers, Rita Ora, Bebe Rexha, Kelsea Ballerini and Halsey performed on the runway at a downtown Manhattan venue as 60 models strutted, including sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Winnie Harlow.

Ora briefly walked hand-in-hand with one of the angels during her performance and a stage hand later fetched a piece of her gold jewelry that fell to the runway. Mendes was dressed in black and slung his acoustic guitar on his back as he sang while Gigi Hadid managed a huge parachute-like set of floral wings that caught the air like a massive windsock. He sang "Lost in Japan."

Jenner took to the runway in a black and silver bikini look and a set of stiff black feathers adorned with glitzy stars. For another round on the catwalk, she donned a tiny plaid kilt skirt with a mismatched plaid train and bra as she smiled. Harlow, a newcomer to the show, walked in sparkly silver with pink feather adornment.

So Josephine Skriver appeared as confident as ever when she stepped out on the catwalk for the fifth consecutive time on Thursday evening. 

Backstage before the show, the 37-year-old Lima, a mother of two, and other models lounged in short black robes bedazzled with gold stars. They spoke to journalists while sitting at makeup stations and lounging on couches.

Not only did Halsey share a pic of them video-chatting at 7 AM, in response to another picture she shared promoting YSL lipstick, John wrote in the comments, “It’s saying my billing address doesn’t match with the one on my credit card? I’ve never had this problem before. Can you text me?” And in honor of John’s birthday, Halsey wrote,  “You’re one of a kind and I’m so happy to have dipped the smallest toe into your waters. Blessed to even watch your current from afar.”

"I thought over the years I would get more relaxed," the blue-eyed Brazilian beauty told The Associated Press as stylists worked on her long dark hair. "No, I still get nervous, just like at my first Victorias Secret show."

Another angel mom, 30-year-old Namibian blonde Behati Prinsloo, smiled wide as she primped backstage. Prinsloo, who is married to Adam Levine, has been an angel since 2009 but this was her return to the show after two years off, just eight months after the birth of their second daughter.

Recently, Halsey absolutely slammed rumors that she and John Mayer were dating after flirty Instagram comments and a karaoke session together. “I just had a ground breaking idea,” she wrote on Instagram. “What if…we let female artists…have friends…without assuming that they are sleeping together? I know I know. It’s like, completely ambitious but like, imagine if we like, tried ?”

"It made me work a little harder," she said. "It made me appreciate my body so much, what it can do, create life and then, honestly, get back and do this."

And Yolanda Hadid was ready to show her support for her famous daughters Gigi and Bella as she was spotted making her way to the Victorias Secret Fashion Show in New York City on Thursday.

At the taping for the Victorias Secret Fashion Show, the singer sat front and center to cheer on his girlfriend as she walked in the popular fashion show for the third time. The Weeknd and Bellas mom Yolanda Hadid mingled before the show

Adding a thin black belt to her lithe waist to hold up her skinny jeans, the Dutch sophisticate stomped the Big Apple streets in black leather military boots.

This isnt the first time the artist has seen Bella strut her struff. In 2016, the singer serenaded the models for the “Secret Angel” themed part of the show. At the time, the two had just split, making for a slightly awkward encounter as Bella strut down the runway to the tune of “Starboy.” Nonetheless, the pair showed off their model behavior during his performance.

Ahead of the show, Bella told her fans how grateful she is to once again don the angel wings. “im so grateful to be a part of the show again, feeling happier and healthier than ever,” she wrote alongside a sexy photo. “i cant wait for you to see all of the beautiful outfits.”

Each and every outfit at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is grand and out-of-this-world, but this year’s special Swarovski-designed look was truly otherworldly! During the Celestial Angel section of the show, Romee Strijd wore the 27-pound design, and looked like a shining star! This is the 16th year Swarovski has designed gorgeous looks for Victoria’s Secret, and this one truly takes the cake. This is one of the most beautiful things we’ve ever seen! Wow!

Romee had another look during the show as well, which she rocked on the runway during a live performance by Kelsea Ballerini and The Chainsmokers. Last year, in 2017, Elsa Holk wore a 14-pound creation made from 275,000 Swarovski crystals and 200 yards of ribbon! The design was bright and colorful, very much inspired by the show’s location of China. In 2018, Elsa is wearing the Fantasy Bra, so perhaps Romee will wear it next year? Time will tell!

Romee’s look featured over 125,000 Swarovski crystals. It was custom-made for her, and had 70,000 crystals on the bodysuit with another 55,000 on the wing! Instead of the traditional feathered wings, this seven-point star framed Romee beautifully. The star “wing” was created by Marian Hose, and took a team of craftsmen “150 hours to apply over 55,000 Swarovski crystals weighing a total of 20 pounds.”
