Barbara Palvin is the newest Victoria's Secret Angel
The first Hungarian to land her wings
Since beginning her career as a model at 13, Palvin has graced the runways for brands like Prada, Chanel, Miu Miu and more. In 2012, she walked for Victoria's Secret in its annual fashion show for the first time ever. She was then absent for a few years before returning in 2018. Now, she's been given her wings.
Beneath an Instagram video announcing the news, Palvin wrote, "I don't know where to begin but I'll try: I never thought it would happen and it has exceeded all my expectations... There were times when I let my own thoughts hold me back and it was a hard climb away from those but my family, my team, Ed and everyone at VS were always there to support me and uplift me."
The news comes after the company's longest serving Angel, Adriana Lima, left last year after her final walk in the 2018 show. Alessandra Ambrosio exited the previous year.
