Victoria's Secret models learn ballet for London show

Victoria's Secret models have been learning ballet ahead of the London show.   

The lingerie giant hired professional dance coach Mary Helen Bowers - who also trained Natalie Portman in preparation for her Oscar-winning performance as a ballet dancer in the thriller 'Black Swan' - to teach the girls to walk gracefully down the runway at the event which will be held at Earl's Court in the English capital on Tuesday night.   

Helen teamed up with the Angels, Lily Aldridge, Candice Swanepoel, Behati Prinsloo, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Doutzen Kroes, Karlie Kloss and other models, including Doutzen's sister Rens, ahead of the show when they will hit the catwalk sporting the company's most elaborate lingerie.   

Brazilian beauties, Alessandra, 33, and Adriana, also 33, will both have the honour of wearing the coveted Fantasy Bra, which is worth £1.25 million and is adorned with sapphires, rubies and 24-carat gold.  

Alessandra said: "It's every model's dream to wear Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bra, so when you get chosen, it is very important to do it with elegance and enthusiasm."  

The show will also feature performances from Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and Hozier.  

Many of the models recently touched down in London and gathered at the label's Bond Street store, sporting T-shirts with slogans including 'THE ANGELS HAVE LANDED' and 'IT'S REIGNING ANGELS'.  

Karlie and Lily even found time to hang out with their pal Taylor Swift.   

The 'Shake It Off' hitmaker shared of photo of the superstar trio on her Instagram account on Monday in which she is seen cuddling up to brunette beauty Lily.  

She captioned the picture: "Casually giving lily's rock hard abs a hug last night, @lilyaldridge (sic)"
