13 years is long way to go, and German beauty, Heidi Klum certainly maintained her ‘sexy’ as a top reigning Angel for Victoria’s Secret. She’s done countless photo shoots and strutted down runways nearly baring it all – over and over again! As a busy woman, she’s taken on the role of a wife, mother of four, and is currently the host of Project Runway. And although she’s kissing the wings goodbye, there are plenty more Angels who are ready to spread theirs!
Check out these 10 fabulous angels! First up: Alessandra Ambrosio.
Born in Brazil, and of Italian AND Polish decent? Alessandra Ambrosio is as different as they come. And different is definitely a good thing – in her case, to say the least! She first hit the Victoria’s Secret runway in 2000. In 2004, she was selected as the very first spokesmodel for Vicki’s Secret: PINK collection, and by 2005, she was given her wings as an official Victoria’s Secret Angel. Like Heidi, Alesandra is mother. And here’s a serious question – how do they do it?! Because three months after giving birth, Alessandra was back on the runway, totally dominating! Will this Brazilian-born beauty reign as the new top Angel?
Another Brazilian babe, who certainly commands that all eyes be on her without having to utter the words, is Angel Adriana Lima. Her first time ripping the runway was in 1999, and in 2000 she became a contracted Angel. Growing up, modeling wasn’t top priority, until she was contacted after having entered a modeling contest. In 1999, Adriana moved to New York City and signed with Elite Model Management. And look where she is now! From covers, to spreads, to runways. She’s on the runway to success.
Miranda Kerr is an Australian native. Before signing as one of Victoria’s Secrets newest Angels in 2007, her porcelain face was the face of high end couture. She’s done haute couture runway shows and print photos. She was the first ever Australian model to appear in Victoria’s Secret runway show and she has walked in every show since. How’s that for a major accomplishment?!
Native born of Cayman Islands, Selita Ebanks signed as an Angel in 2005. She was recognized while working with the Ipex Bra Line and was also applauded as an admired representative for black women. TV Show host and formal Angel, Tyra Banks once said, ‘I am proud of Selita Ebanks.’ This island beauty is a camera favorite!
