What every Victoria's Secret Angel wore in her first fashion show for the brand

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty ImagesAdriana Lima reportedly walked in her final Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this year.

Today, Victoria’s Secret Angels are among some of the world’s most well-recognised, and highest-paid, models.

Some of these models, like Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel, have been with the company for over a decade. Others earned their Angel wings more recently.

Currently, the brand has 13 active Angels, not including Alessandra Ambrosio, who parted ways with Victoria’s Secret last year – although the Brazilian model is still listed as an Angel on the company’s website.

Ahead of the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, find out what each Angel wore when she was cast in the event for the first time.


Adriana Lima wore two different looks when she made her Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show debut in 1999.

In the lingerie brand’s 1999 show, the model first stepped out in a white bodysuit with a ruffled polka-dot trim. She then showed off a floral-print bra with a matching sarong-style miniskirt.

Lima, who became an Angel in 2000, reportedly walked in her 19th, and last, Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this year. She was photographed looking tearful on the runway when the show was filmed in New York City on November 8.

The model also thanked the lingerie brand and fans in a heartfelt Instagram post ahead of the show.


Behati Prinsloo sported a green bra and red plaid shorts when she joined the show in 2007.

After a three-year hiatus, Prinsloo returned to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this year. The model, who earned her Angel wings in 2009, previously walked in the show for nine consecutive years.


Candice Swanepoel was also cast for the first time in 2007.
