Taylor Swift: supermodel? Well, she definitely showed off those gams and singing chops during Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Alas, the country-pop crooner didn't don the brand's sultry signature lingerie for the annual décolletage display Wednesday. Instead, the 23-year-old Grammy-winner rocked out with a bevy of models for the lingerie brand's over-the-top presentation, arriving for the show in a  floral-beaded mini-dress by Zuhair Murad. The singer kicked off her performance in a kitschy, Union Jack-inspired ensemble -- a mini-dress, complete with train, top hat and matching Union Jack gladiator heels -- for the show's British Invasion segment as she played along with the angels while they strutted their stuff and the brand's skimpy show-stopping confections.

CMA Award voters, perhaps trying to avoid the partisan politics that have handcuffed Washington this year, took the safe route by giving the album of the year award to Blake Shelton's "Based on a True Story... " That skirted the most dynamic entries in the category: Taylor Swift's international, cross-genre blockbuster "Red" and Kacey Musgraves' rootsy, old-school country effort "Same Trailer, Different Park. " The other nominees were relatively conventional contemporary country outings from Shelton, Little Big Town and Carrie Underwood.

Taylor Swift will become only the second recipient ever of the Country Music Assn.'s Pinnacle Award, presented to an artist who dominates music worldwide. She'll receive the award during Wednesday's telecast of the 47th annual CMA Awards on ABC-TV. The CMA came up with the Pinnacle Award in 2005 and gave it that year to Garth Brooks, whose streak of hit albums in the 1990s and 2000s has placed him third, behind only the Beatles and Elvis Presley, on the Recording Industry Assn.'s list of top-selling album artist of all time.
