Everyone has heard of Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Jaime King. They are all famous for many reasons, and they are also all Victoria's Secret models. But even these lovely ladies are not Angel material, or not yet. It takes just a little something extra to become a Victoria's Secret Angel, the most prestigious of the brand's models. Only the best of the best receive their wings (though my theory is that it helps if you are from Brazil; nearly 20 nations are represented by the Angels, and a large percentage hail from South America's largest country).
These women are all, of course, perfectly sculpted and drop dead gorgeous, almost as if God had made them by hand. It is no stretch of the imagination that they should be called Angels, then... except that it is. They may look angelic on the outside (usually when they are not strutting mostly naked down a runway or posing nude) but in reality they are far from it! It goes with the territory, as we know, and these supermodels do not disappoint. Infidelity, anorexia, hookups, scandal, even a blood-soaked sex session for the cameras- they do it all! Read on to see irony at its finest: the inner devils of earth's most beautiful women, the Victoria's Secret Angels.
Heidi Klum is the oldest on this list, having been an Angel from 1997-2010. The German mother of four is currently a judge on NBC's America's Got Talent. When she began dating musician Seal, she was pregnant with daughter Leni, whose father was not first husband Ric Pipino, but her next man, Italian businessman Flavio Briatore. But Seal raised Leni as his own, and three more came along before he and Heidi eventually divorced. She denies Seal's accusations that she was, in his words, "fornicating with the help".
Hailing from Salvador, Bahia in Brazil is one of the most recognized and popular Angels (and one of the most senior, since 2000), Adriana Lima. If her smoldering facade is indicative of anything else, it is not surprising that this amateur boxer has had her share of scandals. There are rumors that Adriana spent a night with Justin Bieber during the Cannes Film Festival (as in, all night, in his hotel room), and there are allegations that she had an affair with Turkish media mogul Acun Ilicali. While at a boxing ring, she also managed to accidentally salute a Turkish terrorist group called the Grey Wolves, who not only murdered hundreds of innocent people but also planned to assassinate Pope John Paul II. This caused quite an uproar.
Candice Swanepoel has been an Angel since 2010, and during the half decade or so that she has, the South African native has stirred up some scandal on the side. She comes from the very small town of Mooi River, Kwazulu-Natal (where she was discovered at a flea market, of all places!), but even so, she fits right into the glitz and glam of Hollywood. She did a full-on nude photoshoot for Maxim, and it is rumored that after meeting Zac Efron while out one night, they went to the VIP room.
An Angel from 2007-2013, Aussie Miranda Kerr is one of the more famous ladies to have held Victoria's Secret's highest title. She was married to Orlando Bloom, and it is speculated that their current separation is, at least in part, due to her sexting and flirting with Justin Bieber (he is just trouble for the Angels, apparently). The two men even got into a physical fight over Miranda! She is also suspected to have cheated on poor Orlando with Leonardo DiCaprio.
Another of the higher-profile Angels (2004-present) is the beautiful Alessandra Ambrosio, from Erexim, Brazil. It is in her home country that this "angel" filmed raunchy, nude sex scenes for the Brazilian serial drama Verdades Secretas.

French Angel Laetitia Casta is a little something different. For one thing, she is considered quite voluptuous for a model. She also had a rather short contract with Victoria's Secret from 1998-2000, but has kept her name circulating. She has graced the covers of over 100 prominent magazines, participated in political demonstrations, and made several films.
Lily Aldridge was the wearer of the $2 million Fireworks Fantasy Bra last year, but she seems to maintain a (relatively) level-headed approach to life. That is, except for the million or so times she has flaunted her stuff for the world to see, a quite unladylike (or un-Angel-like) thing to do. An Angel since 2010, she has appeared in GQ and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition.
The wife of Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill and mother to one, it is rumored that she walked the catwalk while pregnant, which people have frowned upon because she was so visibly tiny. No matter how early on in pregnancy, bloat and fuller breasts accompany the conceiving of a child, and her lack thereof was alarming to some, whether she even knew she was expecting, or not. She has also been rumored to have been seen kissing her BFF Karlie Kloss, which is not a big deal... unless you are "straight" and married.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley starred in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and Mad Max: Fury Road, so it makes sense that her fiance is action-hero Jason Statham. She was an Angel from 2009-2010, a relatively short amount of time. She posed for the Pirelli calendar, known for its tradition of featuring top models in the nude. It has boasted the bodies of several other Victoria's Secret girls in addition to Rosie. Also on the British model's resume is a short film for the risque lingerie line, Agent Provocateur. In 2011 she was #1 on Maxim's Top 100 list, and was labeled the World's Sexiest Woman by FHM, a UK men's magazine. All of these are quite an honor for such an "angel" to have.
