Victoria’s Secret held its biggest show ever in London last year, but it’s set to return to its hometown, New York, for its 2015 event, which will celebrate its 20th anniversary.

Victoria’s Secret show is the lingerie extravaganza that millions tune in to watch every year – less catwalk show and more kinky concert with models parading in barely there outfits serenaded by some of the world’s biggest musicians.

Many changes have been announced since the 2014 show; following the departure of supermodels and former “Angels” Karlie Kloss and Doutzen Kroes, the brand announced the promotion of 10 of its regular models to “Angel” status, meaning they’d been signed by the brand with a privileged Angel contract making them the official faces of its campaigns and shows.

The likes of Sara Sampaio and Martha Hunt joined established members Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel and Lily Aldridge, and will make their Angel debut in the New York runway late this year.

“The 2015 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show will be held in New York,” said Sharen Jester Turney, Victoria's Secret chief executive officer. “New York City was the site of the first ever Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in 1995, and holds a special place in our history and our hearts. For this year's show, our twentieth, we're returning to where it all began.”

Since its beginnings the show has been held in New York, until it went to Cannes in 2000, back to the Big Apple and then followed by a tour from NYC to Miami, Las Vegas and Miami in 2004. Last year it brought the big show to Europe with the London show and it was to be expected the return to its roots to celebrate its milestone.
