It’s that time of year again, the time when the world’s top models shed their usual designer outfits and take to the catwalk in exquisite lingerie collection. Next week marks the filming of the much anticipated 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
After numerous model castings and call backs, this week has seen a flurry of models take to Instagram to announce their participation in this year’s show. These models will join the previously announced Angels on the runway.
Lily Aldridge, Candice Swanepoel Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Elsa Hosk, Jac Jagaciak, Jasmine Tookes, Kate Grigorieva, Lais Ribeiro, Martha Hunt, Romee Strijd, Sara Sampaio, Stella Maxwell and Taylor Hill.

For many of these models, this job is a dream come true. This includes first-time VS runway model Gigi Hadid. The 20 year old created a social media stir with a post of herself crying after being asked to be a part of the show.
Two Australian models also made the coveted list. Returning model Shanina Shaik will once again walk for Victoria’s secret while first-timer Bridget Malcolm has said her dreams have come true with this opportunity.

It was also announced this week that Angel, Lily Aldridge would be wearing the luxurious Fantasy Bra in 2015. Victoria’s Secret unveiled the jewel-encrusted bra on its Instagram recently with the caption; “Thousands of diamonds. 18K gold. $2 million.
