One Direction is having a really great week--they picked up a VMA for "Song of the Summer" last night (and were subsequently defended by none other than Lady Gaga), their movie This Is Us debuts this Friday, and their fragrance "Our Moment" earned a waiting list at Harrod's before even hitting stores.
Now they've got another feather to add to their cap--of the Victoria's Secret Angel wings variety.
The British-Irish boyband has been chosen as one of the performers for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show this November, according to The Sun. Last year's runway featured performances by Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and Bruno Mars, so the boys will be in good company.
It's a smart move--we've already seen that One Direction fans turn out in a major way for their idols. And while Victoria's Secret doesn't need to up its numbers--last year's extravaganza brought in over 9 million viewers--it could usher in a new generation of Victora's Secret customers who will snap up their PINK line.
Plus, since most of the boys are in serious relationships (Nora still hasn't recovered from the news that Zayn is engaged to Perrie Edwards of Little Mix), we're willing to bet they won't scam on the models like a certain teenage pop star did--though we are crossing our fingers for an interaction between Harry Styles and one-time rumored girlfriend Cara Delevingne.
UPDATE: Bad news, guys. A rep from Victoria's Secret gave us this statement:
"The recent reports regarding One Direction appearing in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show are untrue. The band is not performing in this year's show. We will announce our artists in early October."
So it looks like we'll just have to wait to find out who will be rocking the runway with the Angels this fall.
