The secret is finally out.
Victoria Secret, the Fashion Show of all Fashion Shows, will be returning once again to our television screens this December. Being a VS Angel is deemed to be a prestigious right in the modelling world, as to is it to be casted to walk the energy filled, eventful runway.
Angels, followed by returning models, to first time flyers – we meet them all.
The much-anticipated line-up includes Angel veterans Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge and Alessandria Ambrosio amongst the latest breed of Angels including Jas Tookes, Taylor Hill and Elsa Hosk to name a few, with fittings already going underway for their highly awaited Wings.
Returning to the runway this year is our much-devoted, model muse, Georgia Fowler, who posted on her Instagram account a photo of herself from last year’s runway with the caption:
“There are so many beautiful women in the world, and so many hard-working models casting for a coveted spot in the biggest cat walk in the world. To say I’m humbled to be included amongst these stars is an understatement. Thankyou to everyone at Victoria’s Secret for noticing my dedication, allowing me to relive my dream for the second time.”
Joining Fowler as a returning model to the catwalk this year will be emerging supermodels-in-the-making Dilone, Grace Elizabeth, Xiao Wen Ju, Zuri Tibbi, Lameka Fox, Alana Arrington and a fashionably late announcement that, Bella and Gigi Hadid, will also be returing.
Fifteen non-Angels out of the full 35 models to be cast are new comers, including Australian native, Victoria Lee, who announced on her Instagram account that she was extremely happy to be walking in the show. Also following in her high-heel footsteps this year will be French-born Model newcomer, Estelle Chen, who wrote that she couldn’t believe this was happening, praising her family and friends for their support along the way.
Aiden Curtiss, Alecia Morais, Alexina Graham, Amilna Estevao, Dasha Khlystun, Frida Aasen, Gizele Oliveira, Grace Bol, Julia Belyakova, Mayowa Nicholas, Nadine Leopold, Roos Marijn de Kok, Samile Bermannelli, Vanessa Moody and Xin Xie will be the other new models on the runway.
Lastly, huge congratulations go to all the models whether walking new or old.
The commitment needed to achieve a spot on the runway is tremendous and applaudable to the highest extent. Also, the show deserves a huge clap too. Each year Victoria Secret brings all sorts of models together from all different races, to show the fun side to the modelling world as they dance along the runway. This sort of light heartedness and portrayal of confidence is something that is aspirational to young girls from all walks of life.
