Elsa Hosk has been chosen as the Angel to unveil the Swarovski look during the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. The 29-year-old model is gearing up to walk down the runway as part of the lingerie brand's annual event in Shanghai, China, later this month, where she'll be joined by the likes of Adriana Lima, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel and Lily Aldridge.
But before then fans have been treated to a glimpse at one of the special ensembles she's set to unveil on the catwalk. Swarovski has long partnered up with Victoria's Secret on its famous show and this year the brand is celebrating its 15-year 'Crystal Anniversary', which has been channelled into the designs. Elsa will wear a pair of multi-coloured wings, attached to long sleeves, all of which boasts 275,000 gems and 200 yards of ribbon, with the wings weighing in at 14 pounds.

"When I found out I was wearing the Swarovski look I was so excited as I've always wanted to wear it. I can't wait to walk down the runway in it," Elsa, who has been an Angel since 2015, gushed to WWD. "This year's Swarovski outfit is probably our most spectacular," Monica Mitro, executive vice president, brand communications and events at Victoria's Secret, added. "The outfit has an incredible wing that is completely covered in brilliant multicolored stones. It is one of the heaviest wings we have ever made... The Swarovski anniversary look will be a major standout. It is an explosion of colour."
A total of one million crystals will feature during the event, which will also showcase the capsule collection designed by Olivier Rousteing of Balmain. Brazilian model Lais Ribeiro has been tapped to wear the stunning bejewelled 'Champagne Nights' Fantasy Bra at the spectacle, which is worth over $2 million (£1.5 million).
