Victoria’s Secret come to the UK PLUS the Angels do George Michael!

Victoria's Secrets

We can't get enough Victoria's Secret gossip at the moment! After last week's announcement of five new Angels being added to the label's line-up, news reaches us that the lingerie giant is planning to open a branch on this side of the pond! As part of a worldwide expansion project, the label is rumoured to be scouting Regent Street to find the perfect location for a new store with Executive Vice President Martin Waters calling the UK 'the fashion capital of Europe' (so true). A European website is also said to be in the pipeline which is uber exciting, although it does make us wonder why this all hasn’t happened sooner, especially as VS has been around since 1977. Whatever the reason, it’s just another thing to prove the brand is going from strength to strength at the moment. Heidi Klum is set to present its annual Fashion Show on 19 November just six weeks after giving birth, with Alessandra Ambrosio rumoured to be the main star of the show. The smouldering model is said to have sold more items for the label since fellow Brazilian Gisele Bundchen left in 2007, (supposedly over a salary dispute). Even more exciting news from the Secrets camp: the angels will be re-enacting George Michael's Freedom '90s supermodels video for the label's upcoming catwalk show! Alessandra is rumoured to be re-enacting the nude (!) bathtub role first played by Cindy Crawford. The original video features supermodels Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista (with a gorgeous ice blond pixie crop) as well as Cindy, all singing the song lyrics and posing seductively in an old mansion. The idea of this updated to include the likes of Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes and new Brit angel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is incredible. FROW seats for us, please!
