The much-anticipated Victoria's Secret Fashion Show has been around since 1995. It has been held in New York, Cannes, Paris, Los Angeles, Miami, London, and Shanghai. Every year, 20 to 40 models walk its runway. The famous faces who have established and boosted their modeling careers through the VSFS include Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Gisele Bündchen, Karolina Kurkova, Adriana Lima, Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, and Lily Aldrige, among many others. Because of how much-publicized this extravaganza is, it has become the dream of fashion models the world over to become a Victoria's Secret Angel, get their own wings, and spread them awe-inspiringly on the runway.

Her hair was styled by Martin-Christopher with loose beachy waves.
