Today, another Victoria’s Secret Angel has hung up her wings as she took her last walk in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2018. After 18 years walking down the runway, Adriana Lima leaves Victoria’s Secret. According to her, she will be focusing on projects that support and empower women.
But before Adriana’s retirement, other VS Angels have also taken off their wings in the past years. Here’s what these retired VS Angels are doing today.
Being the first German model to be a VS Angel, all eyes are on fresh-faced Heidi Klum on 1999 after walking the VS runway in just two years. In 2009, Heidi Klum took her final walk as an Angel. Today, VS Angel alum is now a Halloween icon for her annual Halloween party that’s running for 18 years. Even at 45, Heidi still models lingerie pieces. She is also the host of Germany’s Next Top Model and a judge for America’s Got Talent. By the way, Heidi Klum’s net worth is a mind-boggling $90 million for 2018.
Gisele Bündchen is the world’s second-highest-paid model in 2018. Gisele wore the VS Angel wings from 1999 through 2006. She was even called the ultimate VS Angel for being the most iconic model of VS who would blow kisses and wink at the camera during her walk down the runway. Today, Gisele is a mom of two kids and has recently launched her book Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life.
In the Shanghai show of last year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion show was also Alessandra Ambrosio’s final walk as a VS Angel. 37-year-old VS Angel alum is now focusing with her two kids and her swimsuit line Àle by Alessandra.
Retiring as an Angel in 2014, Miranda Kerr is still a model today for labels like Chinese women’s clothing company Koradior. She’s also a mom of two and a boss lady for her skincare brand, KORA Organics.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley left her life as a VS Angel in 2011 to be a mom of her son with A-list actor Jason Statham and to focus on her new beauty line Rose Inc.
