Victoria’s Secret has held nothing back in promoting its new Vancouver store, the second largest Victoria’s Secret in the world.
After a exclusive fashion blogger preview last weekend and the store opening Tuesday, it held its “official” opening Thursday at the Robson and Burrard location.
The public relations event was complete with a giant pair of sparkly pink scissors and Victoria’s Secret Angel Lindsay Ellingson. The 26-year-old California model, every bit as beautiful in person as she is in photos, answered reporters’ questions.
Q: Why do you think so many women love this underwear? There were hundreds in line for the store opening.
I think women love this because back in the day lingerie used to be so boring and Victoria’s Secret has changed that. They made lingerie fun and exciting. Women love shopping for something new to feel special even when it’s underneath their clothes. I know I feel special when I have a new bra and underwear on, I feel sexy.
Q: What do you think about this store?
This store is absolutely incredible – I’ve never seen a Victoria’s Secret store like this. It’s very classic Victoria’s Secret, glamorous and sexy. It’s a beautiful store.
Q: Have you been to Vancouver before? What do you think of the city?
I’ve been to Vancouver once before when I was a kid, so it was so long ago, but I remember I went whale watching and had a great time. Vancouver’s really cool because I know there’s a lot of production here, movie production and TV production. It’s an amazing city and hopefully I can come back and visit more and come shop here.
Q: Are movies and TV something you’re interested in?
I enjoy being on camera for Victoria’s Secret. It’s a lot of fun. Maybe that will lead to something else, who knows.
