Earlier this month, they all strutted their stunning stuff at the yearly Victoria's Secret Fashion show in New York.

But Lily Aldridge, Alessandra Ambrosio and Miranda Kerr didn't look any less lovely as they arrived at a special viewing party tonight as the show aired on U.S. television.

The models, who are known as the 'Victoria's Secret Angels' showed off their enviable figures at the Segerstrom Centre For The Arts in Costa Mesa, California.

Miranda Kerr, 28, looked especially stunning in a low cut strapless leopardskin dress and black shoes, while 30-year-old Alessandra wore an unusual silver and gold embellished mini dress with nude heels.

Lily, 26, meanwhile, showed off her long legs in a dark pink mini dress and black peep toe shoes.

The glamorous trio then settled down on a couch to watch themselves on the runway, with a few pink cocktails in front of them.

The trio were among a host of top models who took part in the show which took place on November 9.

Adriana Lima, Erin Heatherton, Doutzen Kroes, Anne Vyalitsyna and Chanel Iman were also showing off their figures in a variety of spectacular creations.

They included ballerina style tutus, bejewelled angel wings and a $2.5 million diamond studded bra which Miranda wore during the show's finale.

The show was a star studded event, with appearances from Kanye West, Jay-Z and Adam Levine, while Beyonce was spotted watching from the front row.

Costing $12 million to stage, the fashion spectacular was overflowing with acres of bare flesh as the angels model the lingerie brand's latest collection.

According to WWD, the New York show takes a full year to plan - and a small army to bring to fruition, including designers, seamstresses, embroiderers and prop makers.

And tonight Miranda, Lily and Alessandra got a front row view of the lengthy show, which gave the lingerie chain plenty of opportunities to showcase some eye catching designs.

Themes included a stunning ballet sequence, an evocation of the 'Passions' then to a Super Angels special, an aquatic homage, a New Orleans-style sequence, and finally a pumping disco Club Pink crescendo.

But despite being one of the most successful models in the world, Miranda has still admitted to feeling at little insecure when she first landed her Victoria's Secret contract.

The Australian born beauty told New York magazine: 'I just remember the first time I met Adriana [Lima], she was so beautiful.'

'I was like, 'Why would they want me?' I mean, look at her. She's incredible,' she recalled.

'And then I met Heidi [Klum] and Gisele [Bundchen] and I was like, "What am I doing here?"'
