British ladies, prepare to get your knickers in a knot – American lingerie giant Victoria’s Secret is headed for your shores!
The underwear darling is the latest in a string of recent trans-Atlantic expansion announcements including Anthropologie, J.Crew and Forever 21.
Victoria’s Secret’s London flagship store will open next year on the corner of New Bond Steet, with another 2-3 stores in the London area.
The brand will then expand across the UK before potentially continuing to grow internationally (Aussie girls, could you be next?)
What do you think about the news? I’m a big fan of the brand and will definitely be stopping in on my cross-channel shopping trips!

It’s always sad when the world loses an icon and the news of Elizabeth Taylor’s death at 79 definitely falls into that category.
Despite her tumultuous personal life (including eight marriages), she was the classic Hollywood screen goddess – seemingly always immaculately dressed in ball gowns and bejeweled to the nines.
However the look that I remember the most isn’t a red carpet gown or her Cleopatra costume. It’s the simple white slip that she worked to perfection in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof alongside Paul Newman (right).
If you would like to recreate her classic yet seductive look, check out DKNY’s Vintage Whispers Full Slip ($48), Fleur’t Amelie Chemise from Shopbob ($85)or Anthropologie’s Lace Edged Slip ($58).
