NEW YORK – Angels return to the city for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

The annual show landed in New York after spending two years abroad, with international defeats in Paris (2016) and Shanghai (2017).

The night marked the end of the era for Victoria's Secret Angel: Adriana Lima. The supermodel dropped the wings with emotional recognition, pulling away from the fashion show that made her the name of the household.

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show broadcast on ABC on Sunday, December 2 (10 EDT / PDT), but we had a show on Thursday at the Pier 94. Here's the five biggest moments of the 2018 event:

Adriana Lima stood up during tribute

The show dedicated a special day to Lima, featuring video-mounting clips from her past Victoria's Secret moments. The video ended with a message "thank you" to Lima before the fashion track was darkened and the model itself came out.

Lima, 37, steeped down the runway, apparently escaped when it reached the end of the track as the crowd rose to their feet and cheered on the supermodels as she walked in her 19th and final VS show.

Lima also shared its gratitude on Wednesday at Instagram.

"Dear Victoria, Thank you for showing me the world, sharing your secrets, and most importantly, not only give me your wings, I'm teaching you to fly," she wrote in the title post.

Superior supermodels continued their rule

Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Lima, Elsa Hosk, Candice Swanepoel, Jasmine Tookes, and Behati Prinsloo returned to the Victoria Secret Street, continuing to bend their top model.

Hosk was forced to wear a coveted, diamond-encrusted Fantasy Bra, worth $ 1 million. Jenner and Gigi went to the show in Shanghai, but they shuffled in their angel wings and long trains as if they had never missed a stroke.

Shawn Mendes and Co were angry

The star was not what it was in the past decade – thought Bruno Mars and Lady Gaga 2016, Weeknd 2016 and 2015, Taylor Swift 2013 and 2014 and Katy Perry in 2010.

This year, Shawn Mendes, The Chainsmokers, Halsey, Kelsey Ballerini, Rita Ora, Bebe Rexha, Leela James and The Struts were on stage as performers, and although their appeal might not be as powerful as their predecessors, on a lively show with a strong voice and good energy.

Behati Prinsloo returns to the post-baby catwalk

It's a hot mom! He only passed a few months after he was born with a second child with "The Voice", a man and a star, Adam Levine.

The 30-year-old model returned after three years of emptiness in the series to focus on their children with frontman Maroon 5, two-year-old Dusty Rose and 7-month-old Gio Grace. She was born in February and she was last in November 2015.

Prinsloo he wrote on Instagram on Wednesday about his triumphal return: "I felt like I never went, I love my family @victoriassecret, my first appearance in 2007 was crazy to think about flying time, all that ever then.

The difference in size occupied the rear seat – again

Despite clothing brands such as Rihanna Savage x Fenty – who closed the New York Fashion Week with a variety of women of all shapes, colors and sizes – and designers like Sirian Christians – who often dress up stars, other designers refuse clothes for size – Victoria & Secret has still not moved in addition to its mentality when it comes to casting.

Thanks to the fair as one of the most competitive castings in the industry, it seems that competition only applies to the long and thin models we have seen in the past 23 years of the show's existence.
