the victoria’s secret flock of angels gains 10 new faces
The line up may have been whittled down to five Angels, but Heaven doesn't stay empty for long! Here are the 10 new faces joining the Victoria's Secret gang.
With Miranda Kerr leaving the brand in 2013 and the news that Doutzen Kroes and Karlie Kloss were also clipping their wings earlier this year, it seemed like the Victoria's Secret Angels were dropping like flies. Only five remained; Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel and Lily Aldridge. But Heaven doesn't stay empty for long; the brand has just announced the graduation of 10 new models (including a few i-D faves) from the University of Pink and rewarded them with their wings.
1. Elsa Hosk, 26
Could she be the new Erin Heatherton? This Swedish, blue-eyed blonde was a professional basketball player before she became a model, and joined the Victoria's Secret line up in 2011.
2. Sara Sampaio, 23
Watch out Adriana, there's another green-eyed brunette joining the ranks! We learned a thing or two about how to keep in tip top shape in our Fitness Tips video series with the newly christened Angel.
3. Stella Maxwell, 23
She's been an i-D fave since we first shot her for The Just Kids Issue back in 2012. From Jeremy Scott's muse to a fully fledged angel, Miss Maxwell, we're so proud of you.
4. Lais Ribeiro, 24
This Brazilian beauty has walked for everyone from Chanel to Marc Jacobs and proved her worth walking in three Victoria's Secret shows previously.
5. Martha Hunt, 26
Ranked as one of The Top Sexiest Models on Models.com, North Carolina-born Martha tested her wings in the last two Victoria's Secret runway shows and has just been rewarded with them full-time.
6. Taylor Hill, 19
She's still a teen! A teen dream that is. This American beauty with the perfect jawline made her Victoria's Secret PINK debut last year to the sweet, sweet sounds of Ariana Grande.
8. Jasmine Tookes, 24
Jasmine is a Californian dream who got her foot in the door as an Abercrombie & Fitch model, shot by Bruce Weber.
9. Kate Grigorieva, 25
The Miss Russia competition missed out when they didn't crown Miss Grigorieva back in 2012. Bad move Miss Russia, bad move. Look at her now.
10. Jac Jagaciak, 21
Polish beaut Monika "Jac" Jagaciak signed to IMG when she was just 13 years old, is the face of Chanel jewelry and has walked in two Victoria's Secret shows already.
