London's calling and Victoria's Secret has answered. The lingerie chain announced today that it's moving the annual fashion show (some might call it a spectacle) from New York to London later this year.

The show started with humble beginnings in 1995 (No televised broadcasts! No pop stars!) at the Plaza Hotel but became a much bigger production in 2001 when it was broadcast from Bryant Park and featured performances by Mary J. Blige and Andrea Bocelli. The last few years have seen the show taking place the Lexington Avenue Armory, and musicians like Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy and Rihanna have performed next to models wearing the company's famous Angel wings.

This isn't the first time Victoria's Secret took its show on the road—the 2008 show took place in Miami, for instance. So, even though it's headed to London in December, we have a feeling it'll be back. In the meantime, let's take a look at some of the best moments from the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in 2013 and 2012.
