Known for being the ambassadresses of the famous lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret, these models are considered as some of the most beautiful and widely-sought ladies in the modeling industry. The VS angels show off their toned physique and gorgeous looks wearing barely-there underwear for a new centerfold photo shoot for 10 Magazine.
Fame and reputation is a model’s stronghold to be considered as one of the top in the industry. To be a part of Victoria’s Secret is to be living that dream. As an “Angel,” it features perks and benefits that will obviously help you establish your name in the runway. These include starring in high-end stylish magazines, being the face of the lingerie brand which means constant exposure, and getting numerous offers and gigs from London-based fashion designer brands.
After the highly anticipated Victoria’s Secret annual fashion show that took place at the Grand Palais in Paris in December 2016, a photo shoot follows; first off the list is to be featured in the style title’s special double page pullout for 10 Magazine.
Beautiful and flexible
The Victoria’s Secret Angels certainly lived up to their reputation as they writhe around in barely-there underwear. The stunning black-and-white images were captured by photographer Richard Burbridge. Spearheading the models’ look and style was none other than Victoria’s Secret Collections Creative Director, Sophia Neophitou, who is also 10 Magazine’s editor-in-chief.
Notable VS angels to be part of the Spring/Summer 2017 issue are Lily Donaldson, Elsa Hosk, Sara Sampaio, Jasmine Tookes, Stella Maxwell, and Martha Hunt who showcase their amazing bodies in provocative poses. Meanwhile, Josephine Skriver, Cindy Bruna, and Maria Borges took the shoot to new heights as they pose half-naked in their sexiest underwear yet.

“Burbridge, with his almost hyper-real quality, has captured every girl in all of her athleticism. Every muscle, every tension, is captured — these are athletes at the top of their game,” Neophitou said.
Lily Donaldson poses sultrily as she wore a strappy bra and bodysuit. This elaborate bra and bodysuit were also worn by Gigi Hadid during the iconic brand’s annual fashion show in which she suffered an epic wardrobe malfunction as one of the fastenings came loose. Nevertheless, she managed to carry on.
Grace Elizabeth and Stella Maxwell did nearly matching poses in the photo shoot. Their barely-there underwear gave us an eyeful of their round and toned backside. Elsa Hosk wowed us in her photo as she bares her abs while Sara Sampaio and Josephine Skriver looked edgy and fierce.
Dilone perfected the popular bow position, a yoga pose; Maria Borges and Cindy Bruna opted for a sleek pose as they wore intricate lingerie. Jasmine Tookes, the Victoria‘s Secret Angel who wore the million-worth fantasy bra, looked incredible as she showed off her enviable body figure.
Both Martha Hunt and Alanna Arrington gave smoldering looks while working out their respective poses and flaunting their long legs. All models gave their “this-means-business” look, and we can’t help but be mesmerized as they slay in their lingerie wear.
“I loved the idea of initiating a discussion about these modern day super models, creating a stand-alone section in the magazine that offers a unique physical experience, as well as unique visual experience. We have created huge pull out gatefolds in the issue to give a ‘centerfold’ to each girl,” Sophia added.

Looking back on that lavish Fashion show
The 21st birthday of the annual runway extravaganza was made successful as Victoria’s Secret enlisted a record of 51 models to strut the Paris catwalk. However, only 12 of them have earned their wings to become an official Victoria’ Secret Angel, including Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner.
Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, and The Weeknd performed on the star-studded runway.
