Hungarian model Barbara Palvin, 25, is joining the Victoria’s Secret family as the brand’s newest Angel. “I’ve been keeping this a secret for three months,” The model confessed. This is the first time that a Hungarian model has been given the title.
She first walked for the lingerie brand in 2012 and has featured in multiple campaigns since, making her catwalk return in the 2018 VS show in New York. She said this is her “ultimate career high” and announced the news on her Instagram page.
“When I was 13, I saw the VS Fashion Show and said, ‘One day I will get there. Three or four years later, I shot with Victoria’s Secret PINK for the first time,” Palvin says. “Now, I feel like I was destined to do this. Victoria’s Secret caught me at the perfect time, because I’m finally happy with myself and my body.”
