"IT" girl Ken­dall Jen­ner had one thing on her mind af­ter walk­ing in the world’s most watched fash­ion show: a meal of pasta, meat­balls and cheese.

The Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret pa­rade, held in New York yes­ter­day, fea­tured Jen­ner, Gigi and Bella Ha­did, and five Aus­tralian beau­ties among the 60 “An­gels”.

Jen­ner, the world’s high­est-paid su­per­model, said her post-run­way re­ward would be a huge bowl of pasta, meat­balls and cheese.

“I m go­ing to eat, like ev­ery­thing,” she said.

More than a bil­lion peo­ple are ex­pected to watch the show on TV in De­cem­ber.

Brazil­ian su­per­model Adri­ana Lima was farewelled in epic style on the Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret run­way at Pier 94 yes­ter­day.

Fel­low An­gel Tay­lor Hill opened the show sport­ing a pair of wings late yes­ter­day, while Be­hati Prinsloo, 30, re­turned to the VS run­way af­ter a two-year ab­sence, to loud cheers and a stand­ing ova­tion from her hus­band Adam Levine.
