However, the hugely popular brand has confirmed that the stores will not be ready in time. Boo! No new opening date has been revealed, but it definitely won’t happen in July.

Victoria’s Secret is one of the most popular lingerie brands in the States and always appears at the top of the must-visit shops list when tourists visit the US. This is largely thanks to its theatrical catwalk shows, where the world’s hottest models – the Angels – strut their stuff in the store’s underwear and huge feathered angel wings.

Miranda Kerr, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Gisele Bundchen and Adriana Lima are just some of the beauties who have modelled for Victoria’s Secret.
