Your favorite Angels are set to skip across the pond for this year’s show — are you excited for the big move?
Victoria’s Secret Angels Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel made an appearance at Victoria’s Secret Bond Street store in London on April 15 with some very big news — the annual star-studded fashion show is relocating, moving from NYC to the capital at Earls Court. The 2014 show, set for Dec. 2, is sure to be just as spectacular across the pond. “We’re very proud to announce that we’re heading to London this year,” Adriana said. “The Victoria’s Secret Show is the biggest fashion show in the world, for sure, so it will be amazing to bring the show to London. I love it here. Especially the shopping!”

Victoria’s Secret marketing director Ed Razek was also on hand, and he said that he already told British model Cara Delevingne to pencil in the date — after all, she did grace the runway for the NYC show in both 2012 and 2013! Does this mean that she just might be the next gal to get her wings? “I’ll let you into a secret. I told Cara a few days ago and asked her to save the date, so hopefully she will walk. She was excited. And she kept the secret for a whole week!”[hl_youtube src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJsvuc3pCdU” link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJsvuc3pCdU” text=”Behati Prinsloo’s Victoria’s Secret Fitting For The 2013 Fashion Show”]
While the show has been held in NYC for the past few years, it has also been held in various cities around the world, including Cannes, Miami, and LA. Razek said showing in London was something the brand wanted to do for a while — since 1998, in fact! “Candidly, we weren’t well known enough here until we opened the stores. We have six stores in the UK now.”
With a major presence across the pond, it only seems fitting that the show switches things up with a new location — and we would be lying if we said we were the least bit surprised, especially since the brand opened the 2013 show with a “British Invasion” section. Do you agree? Are you excited to see the Angels come down the catwalk in London?
