Present on the occasion were a host of celebrities and fashionistas including American actress Alexa Vega, Bruce Willis daughter Rumer Willis, Emma Roberts, Zelda Williams and Joey Lawrence.

The RnB star was also named as the most beautiful woman by People's magazine earlier this year. The publication, which provides a list of the most gorgeous stars every year, gave Beyoncé the 2012 crown replacing last year's Jennifer Lopez.

The Victoria's Secret list also features names like Elizabeth Olsen as the Sexiest Up and Coming Knockout, actress Jessica Chastain for the Sexiest Smile and Diane Kruger as the Sexiest International Import.
