Victoria's Secret Angel Lindsay Ellingson In Vancouver For Store Opening (VIDEO)

Victoria's Secret opened in Vancouver this week and they flew in one of their Angels, Lindsay Ellingson to get the party rolling.

A YouTube video shows Ellingson at the store's official opening Thursday, brandishing an over-sized pair of scissors with which to snip the giant pink ribbon.

"I think it would be amazing to think of myself as a role model for young girls out there," she says in the video. "I relate so well to girls, you know."

Asked what her hobbies are, Ellingson replies: "I love making jewellery and I also do lots of yoga, and I have a little cockapoo named Carly."

"I have the best job in the world," Ellingson says about being a Victoria's Secret Angel.

"We get to do exciting things like store openings and get to test out, you know, all the lingerie and talk about it, so it's really amazing because I get to have a voice," the lingerie model told The Vancouver Sun.

Hundreds of girls and women waited hours on Tuesday morning to be the first shoppers inside the new store, the second-largest Victoria's Secret in the world.

The lineup started as early as 5 a.m., according to CTV News.
