More Than Just A Victoria’s Secret Model: What The Angels Achieve Off The Catwalk

Okay, so we’ve all seen the pictures of the last Victoria’s Secret show. These gorgeous women and their amazing killer bodies are making me jealous already. But there is so much more to them than just the body everyone wants and their modelling skills. I’ve dug a little deeper and found out that my favourite Victoria’s Secret girls are actually amazing moms and fascinating career girls. Not just Victoria’s Secret models, but real life role models!

Lily Aldridge and Alessandra Ambrosio

They’ve been angels for a few years now, but we can’t get enough of them. They both manage to be amazing moms and combine that with a busy career. Of course it is hard work to be a mom and a top model but both Lily and Alessandra seem to handle it quite well. Both of their Instagram accounts are an overload of adorable Halloween costumes and cosy nights in with their family. Even though it could be a bit hectic sometimes, they found a great balance between work and their personal life. I haven’t even started about how they manage to get back in shape after giving birth!

Gigi Hadid

This newbie on the catwalk of Victoria’s Secret has a long history of modelling behind her. She has been in front of the camera since she was only two years old and hasn’t quite left. We saw her on almost every runway during fashion week and she walked for Chanel, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs and many more. She also won an award for Model of the Year this year. Do we need to say more?

Doutzen Kroes

She is not an angel anymore, but she has been for years and even though Romee Strijd was a perfect replacement (both Dutchies!), I couldn’t let her pass by without saying how amazing this retired Angel is. She is not only a mom of two beautiful children, she is also ambassador of dance4life. This organisation is trying to create a world without aids. I think it is a great thing that she can use her fame to draw attention for things that really matter in this world. You go Doutzen!

Kendall Jenner

She is one of the most discussed models ever, but after seeing the photos I have to admit, she looked amazing! We all know her from ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ but this young model can do much more. She has her own clothing line along with her sister Kylie Jenner and she has done several shows on last fashion week. She is so young and an inspiration for many young girls all over the world, not least because she values authenticity and loving yourself, and often says you don’t need to change yourself to be happy with what you’ve got. She’s at the beginning of her career so we are going to hear much more from this beauty.
