Josephine Skriver wishes she could always wear Victoria's Secret wings
Josephine Skriver wishes she could wear her Victoria's Secret Angel wings on a daily basis.
The Danish model is a runway favourite, having walked in over 300 catwalk presentations, including consecutive Victoria's Secret Fashion shows since 2013.
Josephine was contracted as an Angel for the American lingerie brand in 2016, and following her appearance in the 2017 spectacle in Shanghai on Monday night (20Nov17), she revealed that she never wanted to remove her wings.
"When you first feel that heavy weight on your shoulders, there is no better feeling," she told Coveteur.com. "You don't want to feel light again, ever! You want to keep the wings on. It could be kinda impractical for flying on planes, but...we'll figure something out!"
In the latest fashion extravaganza, Josephine sported a navy blue lace bodysuit with white thigh-high boots and large blue wings, while for another appearance on the runway, she modelled a black lingerie set with studded collar for the Balmain x Victoria's Secret segment.
But she explained that models cast in the show don't find out whether they will be wearing Angel wings until the last minute.
"There's like… a code word," the 24-year-old explained. "It's different for everyone, but for me it was 'belt.' They said, 'Oh, let me bring out the belt,' and I'm thinking, 'What do you mean? I don't need a belt with this outfit!' And then they came in with these wings. They love to trick and surprise you!"
In addition to strutting her stuff for Victoria's Secret, Josephine has walked for Prada, Christian Dior and Yves Saint Laurent. But in spite of her experience walking in major fashion shows, the blonde beauty admitted that she still gets anxious before hitting the stage.
"Of course, you get nervous every time, but it's a good kind of nerves," she added.
