"At one stage, Victoria's Secret had a very fresh, new perspective," Jeetendr Sehdev, Professor of Marketing at University of Southern California. "Women were very much aware that this is a media ideal of beauty, and they bought into it to a set degree."

Watched annually by over 800 million people globally and costing around ยฃ9.2 million to put on, there's no denying that it's the biggest and most talked-about fashion show in the world. But almost regardless of the 'fashion', the ultimate thing about the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show are the strong, Amazonian-like women storm the catwalk.

For many models, slipping on a pair of Angel wings is the ultimate dream.

Becoming a Victoriaโ€™s Secret Angel means youโ€™ll be joining the ranks of superstars like Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Helena Christensen, Stephanie Seymour, Gisele Bundchen, and Adriana Lima.

As with all modeling gigs, there are no hard rules when it comes to basic physical requirements. But in general, aspiring Victoriaโ€™s Secret Angels must:
meet the Basic Requirements

- be between the ages of 18 and 30
- be healthy and in great shape
- have a slim build, yet be slightly more voluptuous than a typical runway model
(34-24-34, give or take an inch, is the industry standard)
- be between 5โ€™8โ€™โ€™ and 6โ€™0โ€™โ€™
- get signed by a major agency
(Victoriaโ€™s Secret only accepts submissions regarding modeling jobs through leading modeling agencies or through other established business relationships.
Victoriaโ€™s Secret has a long-standing arrangement with Ford or Elite Models in New York City agencies)

Before each fashion show, the lingerie mega-brand holds a casting session for runway superstars. Invited aspiring catwalkers and current Victoriaโ€™s Secret models (yep, even the contracted girls have to prove themselves each season!)
