Victoria’s Secret is arguably the most iconic underwear and lingerie brands globally. It’s held its annual fashion show since 1995 which has turned into one of the world’s most iconic events - watched by many people who would normally not participate in a fashion show. The huge popularity of the event is driven by the high profile models in the show.
This guide will be reviewing Victoria’s Secrets top models that you can expect to see in the show. An important point to touch on is the key difference between a Victoria’s Secret “Angel” and “model”. Victoria’s Secret “Angels” are constantly changing and have exclusive access to Victoria’s Secret that no one else has. Technically, you’re officially a member of Victoria’s Secret. According to Elsa Hosk, Angels are spokeswoman for the company.
Our own Christopher Cloos ambassador, Elsa Hosk, is formerly an Angel from 2011 to 2018. This has given us inside intel on Victoria’s Secret and being an Angel. The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is more than a runway fashion show. This has attracted such a massive audience in comparison to most fashion shows and incorporates world-class musicians, like Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, The Weeknd, Selena Gomez, Ed Sheeran, Rihanna, and Justin Beiber (to name a few).
In her final Victoria’s Secret fashion show, Elsa Hosk was chosen to wear the “Dream Angels” fantasy bra. This was made in collaboration with Swarovski and produced with 2,100 Swarovski diamond and worth over a million dollars. It was a massively coveted role that our ambassador filled. In her time as an Angel, and afterwards, Elsa has worked with some of the most prestigious designers including Versace, Dior, Balmain, and many others.
Elsa’s personal values also resonate those at Cloos - and together with our passion for timeless and lasting design, we’re proud to launch our collection, Cloos x Elsa.
One of the most notable Victoria’ Secret models is Josephine Skriver. Both her and Christopher Cloos are both Danish by birth and we’re especially proud of the accomplishments Josephine has made in her career as a fellow Dane. Josephine is the first Dane since Helena Christensen in the ‘90s to bear the title of Victoria’s Secret Angel.
Josephine debuted on the show the same year as Elsa in 2011 and is arguably one of the most famous Danes with the largest social following. Like Elsa, Josephine has also made her mark with some of the world's biggest brands such as Prada, Alberta Ferretti, Valentino and Christian Dior, and she has attended more than 300 fashion shows.
In addition to her work as a model, Josephine has a passion for charity and the value of giving back. She’s worked with the AIDS Foundation and the Family Equality Council, which is fighting to ensure equality for LGBT parents. As a Danish brand, we’re equally proud of Josephine Skriver for both her career and values for the person she is.
Barbara Palvin is another Angel that is constantly in the headlines - and for the right reasons. Barbara Palvin was spotted in Budapest as just 13 years old, and now one of the newest and hottest Victoria's Secret Angels in 2022. Barbara Palvin has worked with Victoria's Secret since 2012, and this year she is predicted to become one of the most well known models as she earns her wings for the first time.
Known for her cheeky smiles and daring energy on the catwalk is the Namibian supermodel, Behati Prinsloo, who has been a Victoria's Secret Angel since 2009. She is one of the largest names in fashion and married to Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine.
Behati has attended shows for almost all of the major fashion houses such as Alexander Wang, Louis Vuitton, Versace, Givenchy, Chanel, Alexander McQueen, and many more. It’s safe to say, she’s made a huge mark on the industry and fashion show.
The show has actually not been held since 2018 in its traditional form due to the pandemic. There hasn’t been any confirmation as to what form the show will take in 2022 but we’re hopeful for a return back to normal and reminiscent of the traditional show and intersection of fashion and world-class music!
