Well, at last we have proof — those wings don’t really work.
A pair of Victoria’s Secret supermodels arrived by helicopter at a Toronto mall this morning to officially open the last of the chain’s four new Canadian stores.
Lily Aldridge (above left) and Alessandra Ambrosio landed on the roof of the Eaton Centre in Toronto’s busy downtown district to cut the ribbon on the 11,000-plus-square-foot VS store.
Later, the pair posed for photos and met fans who lined up to get their purchases (and VS bags) signed by the models.
The downtown store is the second in Toronto and fourth in Canada, following launches earlier this year in Edmonton and Mississauga. Including half a dozen new VS Pink stores, the push into Canada represents Victoria’s Secret’s first significant expansion outside the U.S.
The chain is also readying a flagship store in London, and has opened a number of smaller boutiques in airport shopping concourses.
Keep an eye out for Ale and Lily when the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show hits the airwaves on November 20 on CBS.
