Victoria’s Secret has always, always awed us. And at times, we’ve been grateful to God for making us a girl solely because we appreciate their lingerie so much that being a ‘man’ would have made us miss out on flaunting these wonderful things.
Here are the hottest models, who have had the opportunity to grace the runways of one of the most coveted brands in the world and set all the men gazing, swooning and asking for more.
This Brazilian model became the first spokes model for the “PINK” line by the company and has had all the big names like Christian Dior, Armani Exchange, Ralph Lauren and Next in her kitty. Ex model Tyra Banks termed this bombshell as “the future of the modelling world”. She was ranked number 2 in the “Top 99 most desirable women of 2008” by AskMen.com.
As the highest earning model in the world, this Brazilian beauty is the sixteenth richest woman in the industry of entertainment.
