There’s another Angel in town! British model Leomie Anderson is officially the newest Victoria’s Secret Angel. This announcement comes two weeks after the brand announced Barbara Palvin and Alexina Graham had received the coveted openings left behind by Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio. The 25-year-old model shared the exciting news with an Instagram post! “Mate I am still in shock…”
Originally from London (south London to be exact) and of Jamaican heritage, she has been modelling for nine years. She began her career on the runways, walking in her first designer show for Marc Jacobs. She went on to book top shows like Moschino, Tommy Hilfiger, Tom Ford, Oscar de la Renta and Ralph Lauren. She’s also been featured in major beauty campaigns for Fenty Beauty and Pat McGrath.
But Anderson is not only a model, she’s also become known in the industry for being an outspoken voice and she’s even developed a platform called LAPP the Brand, to help other girls share their voice. The platform has also dropped a collection of cool streetwear-inspired pieces from sports bras to track suits.
She’s previously walked in four consecutive Victoria’s Secret shows, her first being in 2015 (after three attempts). Victoria’s Secret announced yesterday, April 4, the new angel’s arrival with exclusive footage. Check out the video below, and a the best moments of Leomie as Angel.
