The Angels debuted in 1999 on the 4th annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show with Maria Inés Rivero, Daniela Pestova, Adriana Lima, Laetitia Casta, Heidi Klum, Rebecca Romijin and Tyra Banks.
The 'Angels' are chosen, "By having clearly spectacular physical gifts, and also great energy and personality.
To be an 'Angel' and to be a supermodel for Victoria's Secret, you have to appeal to women, not to men".
