Two million people ogled at the secrets of Victoria the other night as the world's top supermodels strutted their stuff on a Cannes catwalk wearing little more than a smile.

The event - screened live on the Net - also raised more than $2 million for AIDS research.

Most remarkable of all, there were few reported hiccups with the Webcast. Most people who wanted to stare at a fuzzy image the size of a matchbox were able to do so.

According to Victoria, onlookers were able to watch the show and purchase lingerie inspired by the fashion parade simultaneously, although by our reckoning, you'd also probably need at least an extra pair of hands to do it effectively.

No matter, for unlike last year, at least the whole thing didn't go tits up. ®
