Victoria's Secret Angels take on heaven-sent modelling mission to St Barts

Victoria's Secret Angels Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio and Doutzen Kroes have been busy in the paradisiacal French West Indies this week.

The trio of beauties, who are all contracted to the American lingerie line, were modelling for its new spring/summer 2010 catalogue.

Brazilian model Alessandra was the first to hit the sands on the beautiful island of St Barts at the weekend.

Splashing around in the surf, the 28-year-old mum-of-one showed off her unbelievable figure in a number of outfits. 

Creations included a multi-coloured animal print swimsuit, a white bikini and a more demure pink top and patterned mini-skirt combo.

At one point the shoot was disturbed by a private jet swooping just overhead. But Alessandra didn't seem to mind the interruption, raising her arms in excitement as it passed.

As well as a hot pink bikini, Australian beauty Miranda Kerr posed in the same white two-piece as her Brazilian counterpart.

She also wore a pretty pink-striped sundress and a cute white shorts and frilly blue top pairing.

The 26-year-old, who has been dating Pirates of the Caribbean heart-throb Orlando Bloom for the last two years, recently revealed she was still amazed every time she saw pictures of herself in public.

"No matter how long you do my job for I always think it is a shock," she said.

"I always find it a surprise to see myself on the front cover of something or on a billboard or in a shop window."

On Tuesday it was the turn of Doutzen Kroes, 25, to hit the beach and show off the more sporty items from the new range.

The Dutch model, who became a Victoria's Secret Angel in 2008, ran along the golden sands in pink top and black leggings and was snapped stretching by the shore in dark trousers and a white top.
