Aside from being cast in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, one of the biggest honors is receiving a pair of wings. Months of hard, exhausting work go into creating these larger-than-life wings that can weigh up to 50 pounds! While the designers are figuring out the design elements and logistics of the wings, Victoria’s Secret Angels are putting in hours at the gym to ensure that they’re strong enough to carry them down the runway.
Last year Candice Swanepoel said, “I have huge wings so that’s my moment! It’s like driving a car because they’re so far away from my body [but] it’s an honor to get them. I told my trainer, ‘You better prepare me for this! We’ve been doing some extra push ups!’”
In anticipation of this year’s show we’ve gathered fifteen of the most over-the-top, extravagant Angel wings that have graced the Victoria’s Secret runway in past years. We can’t wait to see what the wings look like at the show next week!
