How 12 Iconic Victoria’s Secret Models Have Changed Over The Years

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has been broadcasted for over two decades. The show kicked off in 1995 at the luxurious Plaza Hotel in Manhattan where one of the first angels of the show, Adriana Lima, gained all of the spotlights.
Becoming a Victoria's Secret model is the dream of many young girls. To make it come true, you need to get a modeling headshot, familiarize yourself with the agencies, and have perfect body figures that match Victoria’s Secret-level fit. That's why VSFS models are called angels. They are just too perfect. Even when you are the show's model, only the vedette walks the runway with angel wings. When she starts walking out, she steals all the spotlight. And this becomes the most iconic moment in every VSFS. It means these angel wings models gain supermodel status which makes their careers bloom in the following years, such as Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, and Gisele Bundchen.
Today, we would look back at the most iconic Victoria's Secret models to see what they look like today. Scrolling down and check them out.
