Walking the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is a dream come true for models everywhere with the famed runway extravaganza often the platform to supermodel status. Australian model Miranda Kerr was the first to represent Down Under on the catwalk, but since the amount of Australian Victoria's Secret models has grown year upon year.
Though the US lingerie label generally has around 50 women walking their annual show, only around 15 of them will be certified Victoria's Secret Angels.
Angels, such as Lily Aldridge and Taylor Hill, work for Victoria's Secret year-round as the face of the brand, while different models are chosen each year to represent on the runway. Miranda Kerr is famously the only Australian model to make it to Angel status, before retiring her wings in 2013.
