It's that time of the year again, when the Victoria's Secret
Angels descend onto the catwalk to showcase their lavish costumed lingerie and incredible bodies. This year, models will include familiar faces such as Adriana Lima
, Miranda Kerr
and Alessandra Ambrosio
, who has been chosen as this year's model of the iconic 'Fantasy Bra'
Since the brand's first show in 1995, the event has become one of the most watched spectacles on TV and by 2011 the budget for the fashion extravaganza was $12 million up from the first show's budget of $120,000.
We have chosen 20 of the most iconic Angels including Helena Christensen
and Stephanie Seymour, two of the original members. And we couldn't forget other popular faces such as Gisele Bundchen
, who during her time as an angel became the world's highest-paid model, and Heidi Klum
, who walked the catwalk just five weeks after giving birth to her fourth child.
Who do you think is the most heavenly angel of all time?
