There’s another new Angel in town! Today, Victoria’s Secret revealed that model Leomie Anderson has officially received her wings. This announcement comes two weeks after the brand announced Barbara Palvin and Alexina Graham had received the coveted openings left behind by Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio.
In 2015 she was cast in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on her third attempt at attending the casting calls. It’s clear her confidence that she exudes on the runway made a real impact at Victoria’s Secret headquarters.

On the model’s Instagram announcing the big news she wrote, “Mate I am still in shock… this is something I was even scared to dream about because I never thought it would come true but I am insanely excited to announce that I am Victoria’s Secret’s newest ANGEL!! I can’t even believe it…”
But don’t label Anderson as just another pretty face. She’s also become known in the industry for being an outspoken voice and she’s even developed a platform called LAPP the Brand, to help other girls share their voice. The platform has also spun off into a collection of cool streetwear-inspired pieces from sports bras to track suits.
This announcement also comes at a pivotal moment for the lingerie giant as the public is calling for the brand to embrace more diversity from race to body types. The brand currently only has two models of color on their Angel roster, Lais Riberio and Jasmine Tookes out of 16 girls.
