The second largest Victoria’s Secret in the world has opened it’s doors in Vancouver. The launch of the vibrant pink store front on the corner of Robson & Burrard has been highly anticipated. Eager shoppers lined up around the block on opening day to have the first look at the sexy, sophisticated and glamorous lingerie store.


The Social Life’s photographer Viranlly and I attended the ribbon cutting ceremony on a particularly rainy Thursday morning. As soon as we entered the store we were in Victoria’s Secret World. The front entrance was dark, but inviting, leading us to a beautiful mirrored stairway and with floor to ceiling video screens.


Victoria Secret Angel Lindsay Ellingson was in Vancouver celebrate the launch of the 35,000 sq foot store.


Armed with big pink sparkling scissors, the stunning, 26 year old blonde bombshell cut the ribbon, officially opening the store.

Lindsay Ellingson first walked the Victoria’s Secret runway in 2007 and has been a staple with the brand ever since. Lindsay has also walked the runways of Chanel, Proenza Schouler, Valentino and Dior.


After the official ribbon cutting, it was off to Vancouver’s Canada Place. Holding bright pink Victoria’s Secret balloons Lindsay posed for the cameras.

It was raining, but Lindsey had her big pink Victoria’s Secret Umbrella, which made for the perfect iconic Vancouver photo.
