2. Jay-Z is a pretty funny guy. After a surprise performance with Kanye, Jay turned to Kanye and said, "Well, we're here. We might as well walk." Cue a catwalk strut.

3. Sexy hair isn't so complicated. The bombshell locks I spied were plenty sultry, but also achievable. All you need are some volumizing products and a few minutes with a curling iron.

4. What diamonds? I was so caught up in the general excitement and energy, I completely missed the $2.5 million bra Miranda Kerr wore down the runway. Lesson: Sometimes it's more about your attitude than what you're wearing.

5. Adam Levine is a cute boyfriend. After having dismissed Maroon 5's frontman as a bit of a cad, it was a sweet surprise to see him grab girlfriend Anne V.'s hand and walk her down the runway when she took her turn. Romance is alive and well at Victoria's Secret!

6. Karlie Kloss has got some legs. Duh, right? After excitement about the familiar runway face finally being old enough to walk in the show, I was struck by how amazingly long her legs were. They went on for miles!
