When you first start out as a young model on the modelling scene, there are a few huge modelling gigs that you can only dream of landing, with one of the biggest and the best names in the modelling industry being the lingerie giant Victoria's Secret. While many models are happy enough just to land a modelling gig with Victoria's Secret, there are those lucky few who manage to go that one step further and become a Victoria's Secret Angel.
Many of the top models in the business have gone on to become a Victoria's Secret Angel, while there are some young models who have already landed their Angel wings and have the potential to become one of the top models in the world. The stunning American supermodel Taylor Hill became a Victoria's Secret Angel back in 2015, when she was just 19 years old, and she has admitted that she still finds it amazing that she is among such great company.
Hill was chatting to Hello! magazine, when she said to them, "Becoming a Victoria's Secret Angel and then landing my Lancome contract. All of the greats, the iconic models - Gisele Bundchen, Naomi Campbell - were Victoria's Secret Angels so when I was signed up, I was in complete shock. I had just turned 19 when they announced it and I think I was one of the youngest to be contracted at the time. A year later, I signed my contract as a Lancome ambassador. What's better than being a face of Lancome? Like, this is crazy cool. The whole thing is a bit surreal."
She added, "I've been watching these powerhouse women in movies since I was 12. Their confidence and the way they represent themselves is so inspiring. In a way, we all bring something different to the table, they're actresses who touch people through their movies and the amazing things they do, I can influence a younger generation by being a role model and sharing my lifestyle. I'm the face for Teint Idole Ultra Wear foundation, which launched the year I was born. That feels a bit coincidental. I can put a fresh spin on it and introduce the product to a new generation."
Now, at the age of 21, Taylor Hill still has many years ahead of her in her modelling career and we cannot wait to see just how huge a superstar she is going to become.
