Even Victoria's Secret models have 'what should I wear crises' from time to time.

Well, we don't actually know that. We assume that even the most beautiful women in the world have bad days (don't they?!), especially when you know all eyes will be on you. We've already seen the pictures from the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show from last week, but at Tuesday night's viewing party in New York City, the brand's roster of models brought out their best. A few notable names were missing like Lily Aldridge, Alessandra Ambrosio and Karlie Kloss, but the new generation is still pretty impressive.

While they might all follow a uniform on the runway (wings, lingerie, freakishly toned bums), they incorporate their own unique style when it comes to off-catwalks looks.

Swedish supermodel Elsa Hosk wore some of the new VS x Balmain collaboration, going full Cher-from-Clueless with white knee highs.

The legend that is Adrian Lima went for gothic glam in a bustier covered up with a black blazer and skirt with a serious slit.

Taylor Hill went for a more vibrant look with a shoulder-padded mini-dress and sky-high ponytail.

Jasmine Tookes went for a rather understated white suit, topped off with a shimmering metallic bodysuit with plunging neckline.

Romee Strijd also covered up in black skinny trousers, a metallic leopard print blazer and bustier bra.
