While a minute-long strut on the Victoria's Secret runway might seem like the gig of a lifetime for some models (we're looking at you, Gigi), that daydream can quickly escalate into a state of nirvana when given the chance to sport those highly-coveted wings and be called an actual Angel.
This year, filling in the spots that Doutzen Kroes, Karlie Kloss, and Lindsay Ellingson have left, ten—yup, that's right, TEN!—new girls will join the ranks of Alessandra Ambrossio, Adriana Lima, Behati Prinsloo, and Lily Aldridge as the newest Angels. Scroll down and acquaint yourself with these newly winged beauties:
Only on her sophomore year with Victoria's Secret, Taylor rises from the ranks as she is bestowed with a pair of wings for this year's show. Don't underestimate her, because at the tender age of 19, she's already walked the runways of Armani Prive and Fendi, and has shot a lookbook for Versace.
The 26-year-old Swedish bombshell is no newbie when it comes to strutting the VS runway as she first started walking for them in 2011. Four years later, this former professional basketball player finally earns her stripes as she ascends as one of the few bestowed with the honor of having wings.
Once caught canoodling with Harry Styles, this 24-year-old Portuguese beauty somewhat reminds us of a young Adriana Lima with her smoldering gaze. But if you think that having a fling with the Directioner is this model's claim to fame, think again. Longer than she's been strutting the VS runway, a quick rundown on her IG feed or the Victoria's Secret catalouge would reveal that she's actyally been fronting the swimwear campaings for a while now, Oh, the irony of life.
Having gotten her first VS gig in 2013, Martha's already walked for other major runways such as Chanel, Prada, and Dolce & Gabbana. But going back to the sexiest runway on the planet, we're pegging this 26-year-old Angel as the next Candice Swanepoel.
Think you recognize that sweet but flirtatious face? That's because you've probably seen her on the camapigns and catalogues of H&M and Urban Outfitters. If not, then you might know he as Miley Cyrus' rumored beau.
This 25-year-old Brazilian bombshell and mother of one has VS to thank for supporting her career since the beginning. Now, she's finally come full circle as she gets to don those big fluffy wings! But what we bet you didn't know is that Lais was also once a nursing student before she entered modeling.
This 21-year-old Polish beauty is a dead bell ringer for gap-toothed model Lara Stone, don't you think? We're sure you recognize her from the runways of Ralph Lauren, Public School, and Michael Kors, too.
In anticipation for her December debut as an official Angel, 20-year-old Romee has been hard at work with her boxing training to stay in tip top shape for the big day.
It's a big year for the 24-year-old California girl who bags the gig of her life while her model beau, Tobias Sorensen, stars in Calvin Klein's latest Eternity fragrance campaign. It fashion couple, indeed!
Completing the new line-up is the 27-year-old Russian babe who’s walked for designer shows like Alexander McQueen, Balmain, Carolina Herrera, Dior, and Oscar de la Renta. She's also an accomplished ballroom dancer and holds a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing.
Now, who's excited to see the show?
