A Guide To The Victoria’s Secret Angels Of 2018

Meet the women behind the wings.

It is one of the biggest honours in the modelling world to be asked to walk the runway of The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but not all the models you see on the runway hold the coveted title of ‘Angel’. 

The Victoria’s Secret Angels are those models who not only walk in the show but are the face for the lingerie brand all year round. 

It is a massive accolade to receive angel status (there are currently just 14 Angels), with legendary supermodels such as Gisele Bündchen, Heidi Klum and Miranda Kerr all earning their wings for the famous lingerie brand.  

Here is your guide to the current 14 models who are Victoria’s Secret Angels.
