Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn to join the brand
The Victoria’s Secret catwalk show is a massive event with a reliably starry cast of supermodel 'Angels'. And this year, on Wednesday, two new faces join the heavenly ranks: our very own Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn. Both girls tweeted while on the way to the USA; Jourdan only just making her flight after leaving her passport at home.
They join an elite group – including Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr and Candice Swanepoel – to pass the rigorous selection process before donning, well, not very much to strut their stuff in front of a celebrity-packed audience, a huge television audience when it airs on US channel CBS and alongside star performers: last year Kanye and Jay Z took to the catwalk; this year Rihanna and Justin Bieber are rumoured to be doing the same.
Victoria's Secret have well and truly broken down the barriers between high fashion and lingerie modelling: Jourdan and Cara have bookings for Chanel and Burberry under their belts. But while designer runways might be their more natural habitat, who could resist the offer to wear a really sparkly bra?
