It seems that tomboy Cara Delevingne is keen to prove that under the hoodies, hot-dog outfits and trucker caps she is so fond of, there's a picture-perfect, lingerie-ready body lurking.
Featuring a galaxy of 26 stellar supermodels such as Cara, Joan, Lindsey, Natalia, Xiao - alongside cheeky cameos from the likes of J.W. and Rick - Jérémie Rozan and Charlotte Stockdale’s film continues our fashion alphabets series by bringing our favourite cover winks back to life, back to reality. Over a couple of magical days in Paris we asked our favourite boys and girls to act out our favourite slogans from 33 years of i-D covers; from "Ask Me" to "Zip!" If in doubt, wink, peace and pout!

Yesterday VS (victoria secret) recorded ''BIRDS OF PARADISE'' show. Im not a fan of this commercial shows at all, but my timeline was flooded with images, behind scenes, videos etc etc.... So ok now you have my attention and in a little research this is what i found.
- 1. If you want be a VS ANGEL you must look like one. (Get measured and be realistic. The ideal height of a Victoria’s Secret Model is 5’9” standing barefoot with body measurements of 34-24-34)
- 2 Is not a one time shot. (Be on the cover of Vogue before you are 18 years old. Greatly increases your chances)
- 3 Is alls about relationships. (Get to know Edward Razek. For the last fifteen years Edward Razek has been the man behind the casting of Victoria’s Secret. He is responsible for choosing who walks down the catwalk and who appears in their advertisements. He has been instrumental in launching the careers of Heidi Klum and Daniela Pestova to superstar status)
- Avoid all before except #1 ( Enter the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Competition. In 2009 Victoria’s Secret had open calls in October in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami to launch the career of an unknown model. There are presently four requirements to be in the competition. Models must be female, between 18 to 30 years of age, from the United States and a minimum of 5’8” tall (barefoot). The competition is once a year. Google it and look out for it.)

But shit happen!! Lais Ribeiro was injured (ankle) at backstage so she can't walk.
And a few other girls was rejected because shit happen...
In other words, it's imperative that Victoria's Secret customers like the models it features.
The brand also parted ways with former Angel Miranda Kerr earlier this year. Insiders speculated that her hot career made female customers feel threatened by her.
Erin Heatherton, who was prominently featured in the show last year, is also rumored to be out. Heatherton is known for her famous boyfriends — she's dated actor Leonardo DiCaprio and Browns player Jordan Cameron.
Meanwhile, the top Victoria's Secret Angels are wives and mothers who are often photographed with their families.
Being a Victoria's Secret Angel pays off. Eight of the top 10 highest-paid models in the world have worked for the retailer.
“Becoming an Angel significantly increases a model’s earning potential due to their visibility around the world,” Habberly told WWD. “It changes the girls’ careers completely.”
