—Growing up, fan girling to Tyra Banks on America’s Next Top Model really primed me for my obsession with these artists known as models. It’s more than just selling more product for the brand. It’s the art of creating mise-en-scene in front of the camera. Did you like it? Did you feel something? It’s always subjective, but there’s something really quality about who Victoria Secret chooses to grace their stage.
~Isabella Khair Hadid, 20, Cali~
I like Bella. Her and her sister are beautiful plastic. Also, her fashion sense is very traditional but high end. Makes sense. Gigi and Bella’s mom is a model, so them genes, them genes.
~Georgia Fowler, 24, New Zealand~
Yes! Victoria Secret got international broads near and far. You can tell this girl is about her fitness! Do you see that Warrior 2?!? Namasteeeeeeee.
~Dilone, 21, NY~
She might just be my favorite, personality wise. She’s tres edgy, tres carefree. Her earthy looks ensures the variety. Dilone takes on the idea that modeling is really just capturing very unnaturally natural moments in human nature.
~Alanna Arrington, 19, Iowa~
She comes off very amateur at first, but based off of her instagram, she seems to have a lot of experience. She has a very adult look and I think that translates well on the runway. She seems to be a very well established model with a very coooolll personality. suh dude!
~Brooke Perry, 24, Montana~
Someone who clearly has a good relationship with the camera. Her looks tell a story. She seems really down to Earth and exudes vibes of an era before the internet. Can’t wait what she brings to the catwalk.
~Herieth Paul, 20, Tanzania~
This woman has presence!!!! I nearly died when I first saw her. She is the definition of beauty through essence. Every picture she’s in, she stands out. Every model strives to trademark on her unique aesthetic and Herieth has her look down pat.
~Lameka Fox, 18, DC~
Lameka Fox already has a very Victoria Secret Angel’s look. Brown skin, straight hair, soft features. I wouldn’t be surprised if she stuck around for the sophomore class. (not sure how that works) Her name definitely matches her look.
~Luma Grothe, 22, Brazil~
The first thing I noticed about Luma was her eyes. Nothing makes for a better model than very unique, unforgettable features. A combination of that, full eyebrows and lips makes Luma a very interesting face.
~Xiao Wen Ju, 27, China~
Xiao Wen Ju will certain bring a different kind of energy to the squad. Older in age, yet jubilantly youthful. She brings diversity in a lot of ways! Her unpolished, skater dude attitude is much needed and appreciated.
~Zuri Tibby, 21, FL~
I love Zuri cause she’s so American Girl to me. This babe is Florida made and it got me wondering why we never became friends. She seems so chill! Can’t wait to see the fireeeee.
~Megan Williams, 22, England~
Another one of those blonde hair, blue eyed beauties that looks great in black and white. Also, this girl is runway QUALITY. Who else gives this much face mid stride???!!
~Maggie Laine, 19, Georgia~
Maggie is my favorite kind of VS model. Down to her name. She doesn’t immediately come off as your typical model-model. Her looks are very television. Serving us Julia Styles circa 10 Things I Hate About You stares into the camera.
~Lais Oliveira, 27, Brazil~
It was really hard to choose just two. Lais plays off the tomboy look very well. Also, her eyes are sort of mesmerizing holding a very serious look! But damn, she can smize.
~Keke Lindsgard, 22, Hawaii~
Her brownish hair and green eyes speak to me. Also, very spunky and really embodies the moment. This is quality modeling right here.
~Jourdan A Elizabeth, Texas~
The light knows just where to hit this girl. Jourdan has every angle, period. Very interesting look. I wonder how they’re going to do her up of the show. But her short blonde hair is giving me life.
~Grace Elizabeth, 19, Florida~
This is a girl who just knows where to look in the camera (even when she’s not). Do you not see how those bones are popping out of her cheeks, lawd Jesus.
