Wednesday night I took the trek up to Yorkdale Mall for the Victoria’s Secret Grand Opening VIP Party. The hosts of the evening were none other than three Victoria’s Secret Angels. After Adriana Lima, Chanel Iman and Erin Heatherton posed for the mass of camera surroundings them, they took a stroll through the store and greeted the guests.
Adriana said hi to us! Awwww… We gushed. We got a chance to speak with Erin on seeing herself plastered in large posters all around the mall for the ad campaign. “I’m not even in the store,” she pointed out modestly. We also talked about her adorable freckles, she said she loved that they weren’t Photoshopped out in those shots. Then we talked to Chanel about being in Toronto. She was just so adorable and my goodness – stunning! The girls are all so lovely and wonderfully sweet – true angels.
The store was a more sophisticated version of the American ones that I have visited in the past. (Though I admit, it has been a few years, so this could just be a matter of the current campaign.) I love a lot of the colour stories; the bright purples, yellows and blues bras look super fab. Bra sizes generally range from 32A – 38D and the prices are extremely reasonable. Impulse shopper beware the stalls by the checkout filled with lip glosses, body cream, and other tempting last-minute purchases – sure to increase your final total on your credit card. The store officially opened yesterday with a public autograph session with Adriana Lima.
Thank you to Overcat Communication and Limited Brands for the invite.
