Guide To The Victoria's Secret Angels

There are currently 14 of them!

Posted on

I don't know about you guys but I am OBSESSED with the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

I've spent way too much time watching, re-watching and analysing each year's show over the course of my life. I've practically got all the wings, segments, musical acts and locations memorised.

I keep my ears eagerly peeled for any news about each year's impending show... Who's walking?? Who's NOT walking?? Who's wearing the coveted Fantasy Bra?? Who's performing this year??

The VS Fashion Show would be nothing, of course, without the models. More specifically, it wouldn't be the VS Fashion Show without our beloved VS ANGELS.

But wait... what's the difference between a VS model and an Angel, you ask?

A VS model is basically anyone who's hired to walk in VS's annual fashion show. They may or may not be rehired for the following year's show, depending on availability of spots and previous performances. They get a spot in a show, based on how they well they do in their casting.

A VS Angel, on the other hand, is contracted to be an all-round ambassador/spokesperson for the brand. VS Angels appear in the brand's ad campaigns and at store openings, go on promotional tours and host events. As Angels, they're automatically guaranteed spots in the annual fashion show.

So contrary to popular belief, although a model may wear wings as part of her outfit on the runway during a show, she may not necessarily be a VS Angel. Geddit??

Now that that's been cleared up, let's meet the 14 lovely ladies who currently ARE VS Angels.
