The New Victoria’s Secret Angels You Need To Know
If you happen to be in the market for any bikini inspo, today is your lucky day—the 2015 lineup of Victoria’s Secret Angels has just been announced and, to no surprise, the newbies are gorgeous as ever. With 10 girls added onto the roster, this fresh crew of Angels is the largest in history and will join esteemed veterans such as Lily Aldridge, Alessandra Ambrosio and Candice Swanepoel in holding this year’s title. Here are the new faces to follow on their journey to angeldom—er, stardom.
No stranger to the Victoria's Secret limelight (Elsa has already walked in the brand's annual fashion show several times), the Swedish blonde was at one point a professional basketball player, but eventually left the sport to pursue modeling full-time.
Born Monika Jagaciak, the Polish model prefers to go by the nickname Jac. In a recent interview with Vogue, she confirmed that the Angels indeed live up to their (implied) nice-girl titles and get along with one another swimmingly—model camaraderie at its finest.
A California girl hailing from Huntington Beach, Jasmine burst onto the the modeling scene in 2010 when she landed campaigns for mega-brands Gap and UGG Australia, and has remained a rising star ever since.
Having walked an impressive run of over 20 shows during the Fall 2015 season (including Moschino, Etro and Versace), Kate also attended art school and boasts a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing. Beauty and brains? Check and check.
Following in the footsteps of VS veterans and fellow Brazilians Adriana Lima and Gisele Bundchen, 24-year-old Lais has already walked for esteemed design houses including Chanel, Marc Jacobs and Versace.
Snagging the title of Sports Illustrated's Rookie Of The Year in 2014, Sara was the magazine's first-ever Portuguese model to appear in the esteemed SI Swimsuit Issue.
If you've recently done some festival-season shopping (or have been to any mall in America), you've likely seen Miss Maxwell's face in H&M's "H&M Loves Coachella" campaign. Also to note: she hangs out with Miley Cyrus.
Does Taylor look familiar? You might've spotted her on the Spring 2013 and 2014 runways for none other than Rachel Zoe. Last season, she racked up an impressive roster of catwalks including Chanel, Givenchy and Balmain.
