Since the glittery curtain came down on last year’s Victoria Secret Show we’ve been counting the days until 2013’s edition of the world’s most popular runway extravaganza scheduled for 13th November. Now we are but 48 hours (give or take depending on your time zone) away and in even more exciting news, this year Grazia Daily will be standing courtside to get the inside scoop on Angels-land.

From backstage we will be catching up with the model line-up – so far confirmed to include Lindsay Ellingson, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Candice Swanepoel, Behati Prinsloo, Karlie Kloss and Doutzen Kroes – and soaking up the atmosphere, ahem hairspray. The glitz and glamour, the makeup and Swarovski crystals… we will be bringing you a play by plan account of the razzmatazz. Until then let’s have a look at the top 5reasons we are excited for this year’s VS show!
1. The Glitter Tent
Ever since GraziaDaily heard of this phenomenon we have been intrigued. The glitter tent is where Angels enter as regular women (albeit genetic lottery winners) and come out as bronzed, pearlescent goddesses. We aim to see this process in action.
2. The Music Acts
With last year’s headliners Rihanna and Justin Bieber to live up to, we are hoping to be blown away by 2013’s performers. VS have remained particularly tight lipped about the line-up, but were forced to deny that One Direction would be appearing earlier in the year. Misinformation or are we about to be dazzled with an even more exciting prospect? Did we hear you say Beyoncé?

3. The Costumes
VS’s stylist Sophia Neophitou always manages to surprise and beguile us with her extravagant costumer themes. From Degas ballerinas to circus themed mavens, the show always provides awe-inspiring costumes and matching wings created with couture level expertise.

4. Rumours of A-List Flirting
From Justin Bieber’s wandering eye to Leonardo di Caprio’s predilection for VS Angels, when you have that many beautiful women in one place at one time, you’re bound to get some kind of romantic scandal. We will be keeping our eyes peeled for any hint of naughty behaviour.
5. The Fantasy Bra
This year’s Fantasy Bra model, Candice Swanepoel will have the honour of showcasing the world’s priciest lingerie, coming in at a cool $10 million. The bra sits on its own special bust until show time, we will of course be doing our best to get up close and personal.
