New Victoria’s Secret angels

Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn to join the brand

The Victoria’s Secret catwalk show is a massive event with a reliably starry cast of supermodel 'Angels'.

Victoria's Secret have well and truly broken down the barriers between high fashion and lingerie modelling: Jourdan and Cara have bookings for Chanel and Burberry under their belts. But while designer runways might be their more natural habitat, who could resist the offer to wear a really sparkly bra?
