If, like us, you were a little saddened to hear earlier in the year that Karlie Kloss had hung up her prestigious Victoria’s Secret Angel wings for good, we’ve got some news to brighten your day.
A new young lady is about to take flight on the infamous lingerie brand’s catwalk, and she’s already a familiar face. Yup, 26-year old Swedish beauty, Elsa Hosk, has allegedly been appointed to receive her ‘wings’, an honour only bestowed on a few gene-blessed human beings in the world. The reason you may recognize her is because Elsa has actually been modeling for the lingerie brand since 2011, serving as the brand’s Pink ambassador, and even taking a turn on the catwalk. But, this news suggests she has been made a full-time Angel.
Although there hasn’t been an official announcement yet, Elsa’s modeling agency, IMG, has updated her profile with the news that “She served as a brand ambassador for its [Victoria’s Secret] Pink line for two consecutive years, and recently received the company’s prestigious “Contract Angel” title”. Sounds promising. You really only need to take one look at those Amazonian limbs to know that she won’t have much trouble filling the void Miss Kloss has left behind.
Elsa began modeling at 14, and juggled her fashion career with playing in the Swedish Women’s basketball league. She’s walked for the likes of Christian Dior, Giambattista Valli and Oscar de la Renta, as well as performing her VS duties, but this coveted role as a bona-fide Angel cements her status as one of the world’s supers.
She’ll join the likes of Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Lily Aldridge in the current Angel roll call. Now that sounds like a girl gang we’d like to join…
