Meet The 10 New Victoria’s Secret Angels
Victoria’s Secret announced the ten women joining the ranks of the Victoria’s Secret Angels – a group that currently includes supermodels Candice Swanepoel, Behati Prinsloo, Lily Aldridge, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima.
Lucky models Kate Grigorieva, Taylor Hill, Elsa Hosk, Martha Hunt, Jac Jagaciak, Stella Maxwell, Lais Ribeiro, Romee Strijd, Jasmine Tookes and Sara Sampaio are joining the Victoria’s Secret Angels in the wake of the departure of two popular Angels, Karlie Kloss and Doutzen Kroes. ‘The Newest Angels’ have all previously walked down the Victoria’s Secret runway.
“The expanded Angel lineup gives Victoria’s Secret the largest group of contract models in its history and the most powerful collection of established and emerging models in the world,” the brand said in a statement.
Kate Grigorieva, 25, is a Russian model, competed in Miss Russia 2012 and came in second on Russia’s Next Top Model before moving to the U.S. She has modeled on the runway for Givenchy and Versace, among others, and made her Victoria’s Secret debut at their 2014 fashion show.
Taylor Hill, 19, hails from Colorado, where she was discovered on a horse ranch. She has walked in shows for Elie Saab and Chanel, and walked down the VS runway just last year. She’s also friends with Taylor Swift.
Like Hill, Martha Hunt, 26, is good friends with T-Swift, who has performed at two Victoria’s Secret runway shows. The North Carolina native has appeared in Victoria’s Secret ads and walked in both the 2013 and 2014 fashion shows.
No stranger to the Victoria’s Secret family, Elsa Hosk, 26, is officially joining the ranks of the Angels. The former Swedish basketball player has walked the VS fashion show for the past four years and appeared in adds for the brand.
Jac Monika Jagaciak, 21, has been modeling since she was discovered by IMG Models in 2007 at the age of 13. Already a seasoned pro, Jagaciak has appeared in the pages of various magazines around the world, including Vogue Japan, and recently walked in Altuzarra’s New York Fashion Week show.
Born in Belgium, Stella Maxwell, 23, has modeled for Jeremy Scott and Moshino, in addition to appearing in the 2014 VS Fashion Show. Bonus: she’s also friends with Miley Cyrus.
Brazilian model Lais Ribeiro, 24, has walked the runways for Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Versache and Marc Jacobs, to name a few. Though Ribeiro wasn’t on the catwalk for the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion show, she previously appeared in the brand’s 2010, 2011 and 2013 shows. Her Instagram is full of sexy modeling photos, as well as photos of her son, Alexandre, 5.
Sara Sampaio, 23, is quickly becoming one of the most in demand young models. Before earning her wings as a Victoria’s Secret Angel, Sampaio walked down the runway for the brand’s 2014 fashion show and appeared in various Victoria’s Secret campaigns. Recently, the Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition rookie turned heads as the star of Carl’s Jr.’s ‘El Diablo’ burger campaign.
Dutch model Romee Strijd, 19, only recently joined the Victoria’s Secret family, walking the runway in 2014. Strijd signed with DNA Model Management just four years ago, but has since walked in shows for Rag & Bone, Alexander McQueen and Vera Wang.
California native, Jasmine Tookes, 24, has fashion in her blood. Her mother, Cary Robinson, is a celebrity fashion stylist and she has a 5-year-old sister who is already modeling. She previously walked the runway for Victoria’s Secret in 2013.
