Getting signed as a Victoria’s Secret Angel is a lot like getting drafted into the Majors: Once it happens, your fate as a supermodel is pretty much sealed, as you join the ranks of all-stars like Gisele, Heidi Klum and Miranda Kerr. Also you get a lot of cash.
So, who is the latest model to be given her wings? Victoria’s Secret confirmed on Twitter yesterday that 19-year-old German model Toni Garrn has just been signed as the newest Victoria’s Secret Angel.
Discovered at 14 at a street festival in Germany, Garrn got her big catwalk break opening and closing the Calvin Klein show as a worldwide exclusive in September 2007. Since then, she’s gone on to walk countless runways, front a handful of campaigns (including Calvin Klein, Jill Stuart, Prada), and grace the pages of dozens of mags. Garrn even walked the runway wearing wings at the 2011 Victoria’s Secret fashion show–an audition perhaps for the more lucrative gig as official spokesmodel for the brand.
Despite all her success, and her A-list circle (she is said to be BFFs with Karlie Kloss and Ali Stephens), Garrn has remained relatively low profile. Until now, of course. But given her experience we think she makes an excellent addition to the VS Angels team. Plus, have you seen her? Girl has definitely got the look.
