The official time, date and location for the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has been revealed. This year some of the world’s most beautiful models will walk the catwalk in London to represent the international lingerie brand.
Victoria’s Secret executives announced Wednesday the über-event would be taped in London and air on Tuesday, Dec. 9, on CBS at 10 p.m. EST, Us Weekly wrote. It was originally reported that the show would be held on Dec. 2 at London's Earl's Court when VS Angels Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel visited the VS London store on New Bond Street in April.
“Victoria’s Secret has become such an international brand, the show has been in Cannes before, we’ve done it in Los Angeles and Miami, and the last couple of years in New York, and I think it’s just natural for us to come to London,” Swanepoel said, according to WWD.
The lingerie giant took to Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to share the news, which prompted thousands of fans to share the new date.

There is good reason to be excited, because people do not have to be A-list celebrities to attend the show. Angel Credit Cardholders have a chance to win a trip for two to the London show. Those who want to try to win tickets must register on VictoriasSecret.com. Every entry can be submitted by using the Angel Card through September.
British model Cara Delevingne, who was just cast as Margo in the film adaptation of “Paper Towns,” might return walk on the London runway.
Lima, 33, will appear in the annual show and said she would like to see a certain royal in the front row. “I’d like to invite Prince Harry,” she said during a press conference, according to New York magazine.
Instead of the standard red carpet, there will be a pink carpet. The show, a mix of fashion, fantasy and entertainment, will also include musical performances, yet those entertainers have not been revealed yet. Last year, Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy, Neon Jungle and A Great Big World performed; it was seen by 192 countries and was the No. 1 show in adults 18-49.
