New vs angel

Victoria’s Secret, the lingerie giant, has named their newest Angel, bringing their total number to 16 lucky girls. Josephine Skriver, 22-years-old, took to Instagram to share the news, quickly reposting the announcement of Victoria’s Secret.

She followed the initial announcement with two other photos of her own. The first of which is a picture of herself excitedly screaming and clutching her hair; the caption read: “So overwhelmed with every happy emotion right now! I don’t even know how to be in my own body! It still feels so insane the day is finally here! #NewestAngel #AngelJo.” She then went on to say thank you to the entire VS team.

The second post was of her on the floor, with a bouquet of flowers in her hands. The bouquet was presented to her by Ed Razek, the executive producer of the VS Fashion Show and the CMO of L Brands, the parent company of VS. Writing directly to Razek in her caption, she thanks him and then writes, “Don’t know how I could not wake up every day with a smile on my face knowing the family I am now part of. From you, to the girls, to the photographers, and stylists, to everyone else at the company… I am part of one of the most incredible, driven, and loving families on earth! @victoriassecret #NewestAngel #AngelJo”

According to Cosmopolitan, Skriver has been walking the annual VS Fashion Show for the past three years, starting in 2013. But it isn’t just on the runway shows that Skriver has been present. In fact, she recently landed the cover of the Victoria’s Secret Swimsuit Catalog. The Danish native again shared her excitement and gratitude over Instagram.

Skriver is not just about the glitz and glamour, however, and has been very active in supporting the LGBT community. According to Vogue, Skriver has gained quite an LGBT following because of this, and her candid discussions about what it was like to grow up in the care of two gay parents.

Josephine Skriver, now officially with her wings, joins the rest of the Victoria’s Secret Angels. The seasoned Angels include Lily Aldridge, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel. The others, who are relatively new, include Kate Grigorieva, Stella Maxwell, Martha Hunt, Taylor Hill, Jasmine Tookes, Jac Jagaciak, Romee Strijd, Lais Ribeiro, Elsa Hosk and Sara Sampaio.

Your Model Cheat Sheet: The 14 Official Victoria's Secret Angels

Meet the ladies who wear the big wings.

On November 30, the Victoria's Secret Angels will put on their wings and walk the runway for the highly anticipated VS Fashion Show.
