Victoria's Secret Angels Take High Fashion By Storm

I'm sure you are all aware that high fashion bees have been swarming over Victoria's Secret angels. The trend exploded after Adriana Lima was featured in Givenchy's FW09 ad campaign, and hit its peak when we saw VS angels strutting Louis Vuitton's FW10 catwalk followed by a "curves are back" callout from worldwide fashion media. Editors were quick to jump on this trend; their faces and curves have recently graced most of the big fashion publications around the globe.

Check out Love Magazine's latest work with lingerie gals Alessandra Ambrosio, Ana Beatriz Barros, Julie Orden, and nineties comeback model Claudia Mason.

Katie Grand led the editorial trend not with the this new gig, but with Love Magazine's SS10 issue "Denim Angels" featuring Alessandra, Izabel Goulart, Emily Didonato, and Miranda Kerr.

I enjoy seeing commercial models done up high-fashion style. It puts their versatility to a test. It's fascinating to see stylists and photographers work their creativity to bring new life to these girls' tanned-and-sparkly-with-big-hair super commercial VS images.

 I wonder what pure breed high fashion models think of this takeover...

Here are more examples of this phenomenon:
