It’s as much anticipated for its high energy performances and props as it is for the actual lingerie… and each year Victoria’s Secret delivers something that’s as bouncy and glittery as you can possibly imagine. While this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show won’t be broadcast until Tuesday, Dec. 4 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, that doesn’t mean we can’t get some sneak…
When she’s not in a bikini baring rock hard abs for Victoria’s Secret, Doutzen Kroes can have all the softness of melted butter.
