Wings, wings and more wings! We’ve got every kind of wing imaginable for you, (except for the kind with barbecue sauce) from the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show debut in 1998, to Lindsay Ellingson’s pair (above) that she will wear in this year’s upcoming show! Everyone knows that it’s a huge honor to wear a pair of wings at a VS show, but there are also a few wing secrets that you may not know.
Karen Mulder was the first model to wear wings when she opened the first VS show. That same year, models Stephanie Seymour and Tyra Banks also sported small wings. Gisele Bündchen made her Victoria’s Secret runway debut in 1999, but she was wingless! Not to worry since our Brazilian bombshell had them on the following year. It was Alessandra Ambrosio though, who wore the toughest set of wings last year, that weighed a whopping 40 pounds. And not to be outdone, this year, the VS show will be featuring 28 pairs of wings!
From the ethereal to the bizarre, take a look back at our favorite models, wearing wings throughout the years, in the slideshow below:
