Even when they weren't working, these models were working it. All year, Karlie Kloss, Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr, and the rest of the supermodel pack proved that even if they run errands, pick up their kids, and stroll around the city just like the rest of us, they can't help but look like the models they are while doing it. They've spawned their own brand of street style: the model-off-duty style — and we've been keeping tabs on all the girls, off the catwalk. For the 25 model moments that wowed us off the runway, just keep clicking for the best model street style of 2013.
There aren't many pieces from last night's annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show that weren't spectacular, but this year's Shipwrecked section easily featured some of the most romantic work the company has ever created.
"There's a real narrative to it," says Sophia Neophitou, the collection's creative director, in the exclusive video below. "We wanted to create the feeling that she'd made earrings from shells and bracelets from fishbones and pearls that she'd found in the sea."
And while you can't buy any of those gorgeous wings, you can shop a few pieces of the lingerie the models wore down the runway.
Who wasn't in Miami for Art Basel this weekend? Francisco Costa was certainly there, with stylish partygoers such as Alessandra Ambrosio joining him at The Webster for Calvin Klein's bash. The usual suspects were in attendance too — Hannah Bronfman, Harley Viera-Newton, and Leigh Lezark all made the rounds at the artistic festivities.
Those who skipped the Florida sunshine weren't deprived of red carpet time. Behati Prinsloo and Prabal Gurung got in on the American Hustle fun when they walked the red carpet at the film's New York screening. You can see what they all wore here in the gallery.
The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show airs on tonight on CBS, and we're counting down the seconds until all the sexiness on the runway.

So we've rounded up the sexiest moments in Victoria's Secret show history to get you excited for this year; take a look.

The only thing better than watching the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show on TV is watching it with the models themselves, right? We've got an all-access pass to their viewing party tonight, and we're taking you with us! The chorus of angels will assemble at 9 p.m. EST (one hour before the show airs on CBS!) — and we can only imagine the flurry of stories they'll tell about what it was like to walk in one of the most-anticipated shows of the year.
Tune in here for the viewing party!
While we were off eating turkey, Naomi Campbell had quite the chic few days down under. While promoting Australia's The Face, the model made the rounds in everything from crisp casualwear to an ultraelegant burgundy gown.
Not to be outdone, Kate Moss made a strong showing at London's Bookmarc in a sparkling mini and striped furry topper to promote her Playboy cover! And while on the topic of models, there was celebrating to be done for Joan Smalls's January Elle cover. You can see what they all wore here in the gallery.
Whether off duty or on, models had a very big year — and none was bigger for the likes of Joan Smalls, Kate Moss, Kate Upton, and Cara Delevingne. Read on to find out why we couldn't look away from these faces and vote in our poll by Dec. 16 to pick the year's top model!
Uniqlo will get a heavy dose of Parisian chic in March 2014 when it launches a collaboration with ultimate French style icon Inès de la Fressange. Her career in fashion has been wildly varied, but de la Fressange served as muse and creative collaborator on the collection, which is meant to serve as an "ideal wardrobe."
She was involved with every detail, down to the fittings, and her French flair shows in the easy but exacting chicness of the clothes. In a release, she says: "An interesting aspect about fashion is that by changing a few centimeters, or millimeters, one transforms the garment. And the more one talks about the 'basics,' and pieces that are easy to wear, the greater the importance of the subtleties that professionals in the business can bring."
After all, de la Fressange quite literally wrote the book on how to dress like a Frenchwoman. Her 2011 tome Parisian Chic: A Style Guide includes advice on everything from how to wear sequined sweaters to the cautionary statement, "Beware of good taste."
De la Fressange confesses to being a fan of the brand ("I often go to Uniqlo during my lunch break"), but what qualifies her to take on such a collaboration? She was once a model and muse to Karl Lagerfeld during his early years at Chanel. (They had a falling out in the early '90s but have since patched things up.) At 56, she can still be seen walking the runway every now and again — most notably for Jean Paul Gaultier in 2009 and Chanel in 2010. For the past 10 years, de la Fressange has worked as a consultant to Roger Vivier, perhaps the most French of all French shoe brands, and since 2011, she's been a spokeswoman for L'Oréal.
After supermodel Jessica Hart told a reporter she didn't think Taylor Swift — who was the fashion show's headlining performer — could make it as an Angel, rumors surfaced today that she had been fired from the lingerie brand. Victoria's Secret, however, insists that's not the case. Read on for what the brand had to say.
