Victoria's Secret 2010 Fashion Show

Angels On A Mission

This year's Victoria's Secret runway event has aspirations for the purchasing public this holiday season. Not that they need any convincing. Limited Brands, Victoria's Secret parent company, says a large part of the businesses recent surge in sales is largely due in part of the brand's Pink line, catering to older teens and college-aged women. The runway show, which airs this Nov 30th on CBS, is always a hit, too, even without the "Head Angel" Heidi Klum who quit the show.Celebrity pop stars Kat

Each year, Victoria's Secret kicks off its holiday-selling season with a runway event, designed to build excitement about its products. Not that they need much convincing this year.

Limited Brands, Victoria's Secret's parent, is heading into the key holiday season with a lot of momentum. Some of that is coming from its Pink line, which has seen a surge in sales. Pink, a line that targets older teens and college-age girls, is highlighted in this year's show, which airs Nov. 30 on CBS. The show is always a hit, even without its "Head Angel," supermodel Heidi Klum, who quit the show.

Celebrity pop stars Katy Perry and Akon will lend their star power this year for an event only Victoria's Secret can produce.
