Following the news of Barbara Palvin officially joining the Victoria’s Secret Angel squad, we hear that British model Leomie Anderson is the latest to earn her very own wings. The South London-native has walked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show four times and took to Instagram to share the news of her ascension to Angel status.
Anderson is an industry sweetheart who made her runway debut almost 10 years ago, aged 17 when she walked for Marc Jacobs. She’s since gone on to walk for everyone from Jeremy Scott and Tom Ford to YEEZY and has snagged major campaigns for the likes of Savage X Fenty and Pat McGrath Labs. Alongside modelling, Anderson is social activist and entrepreneur who launched her own label, LAPP The Brand, as both a line of apparel and a platform that acts as an unabridged voice of women’s issues.
Anderson’s appointment brings the current Victoria’s Secret Angel count up to a total of 15, including the likes of Elsa Hosk, Taylor Hill and Jasmine Tookes. In related news, did you hear the lingerie brand is closing 53 of its stores this year?
