A Quick Update About Becoming a Victoria's Secret Model
If you want to know who has the ultimate say-so of who gets to be a Victoria's Secret Angel, his name is: Edward Razek. This man is the Senior Creative & Chief Marketing Officer for Limited Brands, which is the company that owns VS. Razek is responsible for personally selecting the models to represent the world famous lingerie company. He has helped to launch the VS careers of dozens of models whose names we would know anywhere: Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum and Gisele, among many others.
For those of you that are not already aware of it, VS does have a Fashion Show Competition to find the next VS Angel. The most recent one was held in October of 2009 and consisted of castings in New York, Miami, Los Angeles and Chicago. The requirements are that contestants be a minimum of 5'8" in height without shoes on (no faking it with the heels, ladies, they will check!) and you have to be a native resident of the United States. Additionally, you have to be between the ages of 18 to 30 years old. I'm sure they'll have this competition again next year and soon as I can get the info I'll be sure to post it on my blog.
