Victoria's Secret angels face the jungle for new Swim catalogue

The Victoria's Secret angels are ditching the catwalk in favour of the jungle for the lingerie giant's new Swim catalogue. Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel, Alessandra Ambrosio and Lily Aldridge are just some of the models braving jungle treks and facing their biggest fears as they pose in the brand's latest swimwear pieces.


Victoria's Secret shared the Swim catalogue cover on their Instagram account

The catalogue's cover, shared on the Victoria's Secret Instagram account, sees models Josephine Skriver, Monika Jac Jagaciak, Lais Ribeiro, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel, Andreea Diaconu, Sharam Diniz, Ophelie Guillermand, and Elsa Hosk swimming in a lake, peeking out above the water with slicked back hair and minimal make-up to showcase their renowned natural beauty.

Victoria's Secret also delighted fans when they revealed that a TV special would air alongside the release of the catalogue, with a behind-the-scenes look at the models' shoot as they soaked up the sun in tropical Puerto Rico.

The TV airing will be particularly special for angel Behati Prinsloo, as rocker husband Adam Levine will be performing for the episode with band Maroon 5. They won't be the only musical guests however as Juanes will also be performing.

The 2014 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show included performers Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande and Hozier

It comes as no surprise that the special will feature musical performances, as in recent years the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show has featured live performers.

Last year the angels and models gathered in London for the runway extravaganza, storming the runway in dazzling wings and lingerie while the likes of Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande and Hozier performed.

"The whole world is watching this show, so the girls train like athletes leading up to his day," said Mary Helen Bowers, who trains some of the angels, speaking to HELLO! Fashion backstage at the show. "It's the biggest fashion show of the year – they're out there wearing the sexiest lingerie and you can literally see every muscle in their body."

"Their appearance is aspirational, because that's what angels are," she added. "They're the example of the sexiest, most beautiful and most incredible bodies in the world."
