December is a much-anticipated month in the world of men not just because of the coming Christmas season and not just because the regular season of American football is about to approach crunch time, but because it the month when the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is aired on network television. Nobody really cares if regular women can really wear the lingerie the models are wearing. What is important is that these young models are wearing them and walking on the runway to display the latest in underwear.
We all have our favorites from the likes of Tyra Banks and Giselle Bundchen to the newer ones like Barbara Palvin and Doutzen Kroes. Making a top 10 list is almost impossible as the list may change everyday depending on a guy’s mood. One can even make a top 50 list easily due to the sheer number of amazing models that have appeared for the brand.
Still, here are the top 10 sexiest Victoria’s Secret models of all time.
1. Kate Upton
Upon seeing her, the casting director of Victoria’s Secret said that including her in the fashion show is a no-brainer. Upton is probably more known for her appearance on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine’s swimsuit edition, but she did once modeled for the lingerie company as well. Her male fans scrutinize anything she does. She once sang along to “Teach Me How to Dougie” during a break in a game by the Los Angeles Clippers and the video immediately went viral. Another video of her doing “Cat Daddy” garnered 750,000 hits within 24 hours. She has also made a breakthrough in the world of high fashion after appearing on the cover of Vogue magazine.
2. Candice Swanepoel
The angels of Victoria’s Secret aspire for two things while in the employ of the lingerie giant: to wear the fantasy bra during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and to be on the cover of the annual Swim catalog. Swanepoel has landed the cover gig three straight years from 2011 to 2013. She has fame and fortune, having landed on the sexiest and hottest list of FHM and Maxim, as well as the richest models list of Forbes magazine.
3. Alessandra Ambrosio
Ambrosio is a Brazilian model with Polish and Italian blood. She has appeared as a model for such brands as Ralph Lauren, Armani Exchange, Christian Dior and Next. She was the first spokesmodel of the lingerie giant’s PINK line. She has consistently grabbed the headlines during the annual fashion show due to a variety of reasons. In 2008, she appeared on the show despite having given birth just three months earlier. In 2011, she walked on the runway while wearing the heaviest wings ever made for the show at 30 pounds. And in 2012, she sported the show’s Fantasy Bra that was created by London Jewelers and encrusted with amethysts, rubies, sapphires and diamonds.
4. Adriana Lima
Men took notice of Lima when she practically admitted that she was still a virgin in 2006 during an interview with GQ Magazine. She said that sex should only be done after marriage. Millions of guys around the world wanted to send in an application. Well, it’s too late now as she is married to Marko Jaric, a basketball player from Serbia with whom she has two kids. Lima first burst into the scene when she won the Supermodel of Brazil competition at the age of 15. She subsequently placed second in the Supermodel of the World contest the following year.
5. Heidi Klum
How anyone can leave this girl is probably beyond comprehension, but it was exactly what her husband, the singer Seal, did. Klum was the first German to become an angel of Victoria’s Secret and she was a regular on its fashion shows for 13 years. She has also graced the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine’s swimsuit edition. She has also appeared in several films and television shows. Klum is the second richest model in the world.
6. Lindsay Ellingson
She was a college student taking up Biology at the University of California in San Diego before she was discovered while walking down the street. And she immediately proved to be a hit, with fashion houses seeking her services, including Chanel, Christian Dior, Gucci, Valentino, Lacoste, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Diane von Furstenberg and Giorgio Armani. She also appeared on the covers of Vogue, GQ and Elle. She became a Victoria’s Secret model in 2007 and she is now the face of its perfume line and its new bra line called Gorgeous.
7. Miranda Kerr
She is the girl with the killer dimples with a girl-next-door aura. Because of her unique looks, Kerr does not intimidate other people as girls can see her as a friend and guys view her as someone whom they can talk to…just like the girl next door. She also possesses an intelligent mind because of her science background, having taken up nutrition and health psychology before becoming a model. She has been with Victoria’s Secret since 2007, the first Australian model to be featured in the annual fashion show.
8. Marissa Miller
She became a Victoria’s Secret angel in 2007. She was on the cover of the 2008 swimsuit edition of Sports Illustrated, an issue that sold record numbers. Miller is also into motorbikes, having served as a spokesperson for Harley-Davidson. She is also into sports, having served as a spokesperson for the NFL. She has been ranked number one on Maxim’s hottest list and FHM’s sexiest ranking. She is also an ambassador for the American Cancer Society. Miller is, indeed, the epitome of a supermodel.
9. Brooklyn Decker
She was discovered when she was just a teenager shopping in a mall in Charlotte. In just about 10 years, Decker has appeared on the cover of the swimsuit edition of Sports Illustrated, been featured on the 2010 Swim catalogue of Victoria’s Secret and made guest appearances in television shows like Chuck and Ugly Betty. She is now married to tennis star Andy Roddick.
10. Isabeli Fontana
She was only 16 when she appeared in Victoria’s Secret lingerie catalog in violation of the company’s policy not to employ anyone below 18. Versace, Ralph Lauren and Valentino soon signed her up. She has since appeared in Sports Illustrated, Vogue and Elle, as well as modeled for Hugo Boss and Revlon.
