Pictures from the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show are in! And, just like last year and the year before that, we are once again blown away by Brian Atwood’s unbridled, over-the-top, 100 percent creative shoe designs.
This marks Brian Atwood‘s fourth year in a row of designing shoes for the most awaited evening in lingerie fashion. From the feathery strappy sandals he placed on up-and-coming model Winnie Harlow to the crystal-embellished boots he gave retiring Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana Lima, he sure didn’t make it easy for us to narrow it down to just these top 10 best shoes of the night.
1. Crystal-star-embellished booties on Adriana Lima.
A teary-eyed Adriana Lima bid farewell to the audience at her 18th and final Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. The longest-serving Victoria’s Secret Angel shone like the star she is in black booties embellished with sparkling crystal constellations.

2. Corset-lace-up pump booties on Kendall Jenner.
After controversially declaring that she was not walking in the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Kendall Jenner was back with a vengeance this year in corset-lace-up pump booties paired with a racy tartan outfit.

3. Black-leather over-the-knee lace-up cage boots on Behati Prinsloo.
Behati Prinsloo is another model who’s back on the VS runway after taking the last two years off to give birth to her two daughters with Adam Levine. The Namibian model showed off her post-baby body in sexy lace-up cage boots.

Meanwhile, Gigi’s little sister Bella Hadid rocked two of the hottest looks of the night. She put on display her hip bones that look like they can cut in sporty black-and-white lace-up booties.

10. $15,000 crystal-star-constellation-embellished thigh-high boots on Barbara Fialho and Cindy Bruna.
Most expensive doesn’t always mean most beautiful, but in this case, it does.
Brian Atwood’s crown jewel of the night were the $15,000 thigh-high boots dripping with crystal embellishments down each leg.
