The Victoria's Secret fashion show is airing tonight (on CBS, 10/9C), and it's always a spectacle of physical perfection. We don't know if this will make you feel any better, but we dug up some pictures of some of the well-known Angels, and while--yes, they were obviously adorable--they've also had their share of bad bowl haircuts, gangly limbs, and mom-imposed fashion. But they've all emerged from their cocoons to earn their Angel wings (um, sorry for mixing metaphors there) and we're excited to see the whole extravaganza tonight. Click through to see the Angels back when they were mere mortals.

OK, so she was pretty much always attractive.
A bit of a tomboy then, but she's all woman now.
There is not a single bad picture of Chanel. We really looked. They're all adorable/stunning.
Being Brazilian, she pretty much grew up wearing bikinis, which is the ultimate training for Victoria's Secret.
No one really takes good school pictures, but she still looks a thousand times better than most teenagers.
Loving the bans and the modified Dorothy Hamill wedge.
Can she dunk, though?
Another child who apparently had no awkward stages.
You'd never guess that she's the future Mrs. Bloom. She looks go girl-next-door.

No baby pictures exist of these three because they emerged from the womb in all their fierce, amazon glory and never wore braces or plaid pants.
