What you may not know is that the brand was, in fact, named after Britain’s iconic 19th century monarch Queen Victoria.
The multi billion dollar company has made underwear sexier than ever and enjoys success worldwide with thousands of stores and the world’s attention is always focused on the highly anticipated Victoria’s Secret Show .
Why do we love the Victoria’s Secret Show?
It’s the show stopping event of the year and has put the brand on the map. Televised to millions around the globe, supermodels parade their big fanciful wings down the catwalk clad in the new range of skimpy underwear.
So who are Victoria’s Secret Angels?
The carefully selected models handpicked to walk down the runway are deliciously nicknamed ‘Angels’. Being selected is a huge honour and undoubtedly the holy grail for models. That’s because it leads to further lucrative signings.
Since Australia’s Miranda Kerr first walked the catwalk, she’s landed multiple deals as has others such as Karlie Kloss.
Those chosen to walk in the shows are called “Angels” and the job is generally considered one of the most prestigious in the modelling world. The Angels are contracted to the company to do other promotional gigs throughout the year. The newest Angel is Karlie Kloss, whose very slim body type has drawn some criticism. Australia’s own Miranda Kerr was chosen to wear the Fantasy Bra in the 2011 parade.
What’s all the fuss about the Fantasy Bra?
The Fantasy Bra is an elaborately designed bra covered in precious gems that is always seen at the finale of each show. It’s deemed a badge of honour to be picked to wear the bra.
Essentially, if you get the honour you join an illustrious list of models which includes Gisele Bundchen, Tyra Banks and Claudia Schiffer plus Heidi Klum.
And it guarantees your picture will be flashed around the world.
