Time to roll out the pink carpet!
Even though CBS won't air the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show until Dec. 1, I can tell you all about the event going down tonight. There are some changes this year: the show has been moved back to New York City, and new mama Heidi Klum is telling everyone on the red carpet that she's just going to host—not walk the runway—this time around.
The Black Eyed Peas get the party started, hitting the stage to perform "Boom Boom Pow." Fergie's singing live and dancing up a storm as models strut in futuristic lingerie getups. Jay-Z is watching from the front row sans Beyoncé and looks impressed by Fergie's pipes.
After the group finishes "Meet Me Halfway," there's a surprise...
Heidi is walking the runway!
She does her signature catwalk in a fairy-type getup and the place goes crazy. Michelle Trachtenberg sits next to her Gossip Girl costar Matthew Settle, as Kings Of Leon look on (while their song plays, how meta).
What else is happening in New York City? Well, across town at the Plaza, Diddy is throwing himself a birthday party, with help from Bono, Kim Kardashian and Martha Stewart. (Which one of these does not belong?)
Now I'm off the to the New Moon afterparty at the Box, where the cast is hanging. Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz are on hand, as well as Gossip Girl's Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr...but where are Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson?
I'm gonna try and find out. Check back later for all the starry scoop...
