Nothing beats a brand-new fashion discovery, especially when it’s fresh style stars to get on your radar. All summer we’ll be bringing you chic ladies worth getting to know because, honestly, you can never have too much outfit inspiration. Last time we talked princesses, and now, meet the next big bombshells.
Some of the biggest names to walk down the Victoria’s Secret runway have transcended the lingerie sphere into big-time territory: Gisele, obviously, plus Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio. They’re all more or less household names (just ask any dude you know if those names sound familiar). And because there’s something undeniably special about an Angel, I sorted through the ranks to pick the ladies I’m billing as up-and-comers in the glitzy, gorgeous world that Victoria’s Secret rules over.
1. Toni Garnn
You might recognize this German model’s name thanks to news suggesting she’s Leonardo DiCaprio’s latest squeeze. That in itself is a pretty big stamp of approval that she’s on the rise (crop-top mastery is a second sign).
2. Martha Hunt
I chatted with Martha earlier this week about summer style, and she was pretty awesome in person. I’m also appreciating her killer accessory game: killer sandals and that choker!
3. Devin Windsor
The platinum blond gives Devin a punk-rock feel that definitely makes her stand out from the crowd. And while we know she can rock skimpy stuff, I love her boots-and-nubby-sweater sense too.
4. Lais Ribeiro
Being a Brazilian beauty definitely seems to work in your favor when it comes to being a Victoria’s Secret star. And rocking a solid gold party dress is a pretty good sign too.
5. Barbara Palvin
Do you guys remember when Justin Bieber supposedly took Barbara on a date? I mean, that’s major. She’s a bombshell to watch—you can just tell with the sexy maxidress and bare feet (on a yacht, no less).
6. Kasia Struss
The beauty of Victoria’s Secret models is that they’re so much more than lingerie models, with amazing taste in clothing too. I loved this bold cocktail dress on Kasia, showing she’s not afraid of fashion.
7. Sui He
See what I mean? A totally glam printed pantsuit isn’t some simple LBD. It takes fashion chops to pick something like this instead of a sexy body-con dress.
8. Cindy Bruna
Some of my favorite VS girls are the ones who seamlessly transition to high-fashion model (hello, Karlie Kloss). This French beauty has it on her resume and has already nailed casual, easy model-off-duty style. I mean, have you ever seen Adidas sneakers look so chic?
9. Sara Sampaio
There’s something really refreshing, style-wise, when a model who can totally rock the sexiest, slinkiest cocktail dresses instead opts for something a bit more intriguing—basically more girl-hot than guy. That’s exactly what Sara did in this sculpted strapless dress. Brava!
10. Jasmine Tookes
This outfit is, basically, perfect to me (though ballsy). It looks blissfully comfortable but is sexy enough for any date night thanks to the sheer tank and black bra playing peekaboo.
11. Ieva Laguna
The minute I saw this picture, my mind went to Victoria’s Secret vets like Gisele and Anne V. Before you can explode into the stratosphere, you’ve gotta nail the perfect black dress and classic nude heels look.
