Fun Facts About Victoria’s Secret Angels


So Emily just got back from backstage at the Victoria's Secret Annual Fashion Show (more on that tomorrow), and she came bearing gifts! Namely, the press pack, which Tommy Ton pointed out to her as being worth a read. And? It is. The tip sheets have 6 models a page and include their heights, birth day/month and state (or country) of origin. Also, a Fun Fact (that kind of reads like a personal ad!)! Nearly all involve working out, quite a few mention Rihanna, and some favorite snacks! We pulled out a few of our faves. Read 'em and weep:

    Just sitting here, reading this, crying that I'm not one of them, and dreaming of chocolate... thanks VS.

  • kate moss daily

    I had no idea Cara was only 5'8." Cool to learn about these little details. Almost makes the angels seem like one of us regular girls...almost!

  • Trushna Khatri

    I would love to get into a modelling career one day! It would be amazing.. I'm 5"8/5"9 so I think it's almost the perfect height, right? Just not sure how to get into that career.. But these girls sound amazing! :)

  • Trushna Khatri

    Wow.. These girls sound amazing! Posts like these make me really want to pursue a career in modelling.. I'm 5"8/5"9 so it would be absolutely awesome but I have no idea how to get into it! Maybe one day haha

  • Sophie

    Love Cara and Karlie so much; cannot wait to watch them in the show! Thanks for the fun facts:)

  • Rose_Luv

    Am I the only one unimpressed with the whole Victoria Secret Angel's concept? For one thing VS makes some of the cheapest (quality wise) lingerie around, but for not that cheap of a price. And everything is made in China.

    Then they try to act like they have these "curvy" girls as their angels, when really they are all rail thin, they just happen to have a little more T&A than some of the other high fashion models. I find the whole angel campaign super cheesy.

  • P is for Ploy

    I love that they "love" working out. Guess that's the price you pay to be an angel!

  • Natalia Zurowski

    Barbara Palvin is really 171cm so 5.7.5" ;) It's so nice to see the slightly shorter girls like her and Cara be in the show as well! They are both such sweet girls that it just comes to show you that height isn't everything in the modelling world!

  • Lily KG

    Cannot wait to see the photos!
