Leomie Anderson Is the Newest Victoria's Secret Angel

Leomie Anderson is the newest Victoria\'s Secret Angel. The Jamaican-born, London-bred supermodel announced the news on Instagram Thursday, writing: \"This is something I was even scared to dream about because I never thought it would come true but I am insanely excited to announce that I am Victoria’s Secret’s newest ANGEL!\" She joins models Barbara Palvin and Alexina Graham as the latest Angels to be announced by the lingerie brand this year.With her new appointment, Leomie becomes the sixth Black model in history to become a Victoria\'s Secret Angel since the brand introduced the sector in 1997. While every Victoria\'s Secret model enjoys a certain level of exposure and prestige, the Angel delineation is reserved for an elite few. Angels are the faces of the brand, with air-tight contracts, staggering paychecks, and unprecedented notoriety. It\'s an important distinction because historically, Angels have been overwhelmingly white. There have only been 6 Black Victoria\'s Secret Angels
