Katy Perry has really brightened things up at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. During her lively finale performance in 2010, she showed why she is every boy’s “Teenage Dream.” Katy hit the runway in a bold yellow mini and leather lace-up boots as she belted out a trio of her favorite tracks, including “Hot N Cold” and “California Girls.”

Liu Wen, Chinese Supermodel



Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com

Liu Wen. If you haven't heard of Liu, you're probably not Chinese. She is widely considered to be China's first true supermodel. She also happens to be one of the highest-paid models, and that's probably not a coincidence. People on social media love Liu, and she has branched out into all sorts of different areas of the Asian media market.

Let's learn a little bit more about the fascinating Liu Wen.


Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Liu is from a humble background. Born on 27 January 1988 in Yongzhou, Hunan, she entered a modeling contest at her mother's suggestion. Not surprisingly, she was discovered there - it was the summer 2005 New Silk Road World Model Contest - even though she did not win it.

Liu started getting assignments soon afterwards with the likes of the Chinese editions of Vogue and Harpers's Bazaar.

Liu's breakout moment was when she was noticed for an editorial she shot with Karl Lagerfeld and Viktor and Rolf. That led to an invitation to Paris in 2008 for Paris Fashion Week.

After that, Liu was on a role. She debuted in Milan in February 2008 and in New York in 2009.

Angela Lindvall, Hot Jewelry Maven



Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Angela Lindvall (January 14, 1979) is familiar to Victoria's Secret fans because she has appeared in many of its commercials, such as the Victoria's Secret Holiday Commercial in 2004. Well, that is, besides walking in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows in 2000, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008, of course. Angela also has made quite a name for herself outside the Victoria's Secret universe, both in the traditional film/tv outlets for supermodels, and in the world of fashion.

Let's learn a little more about Angela Lindvall.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Angela is an Oklahoma girl, born in Midwest City, but grew up in Lee's Summit, Missouri (her family still liver there). Her dad is a pharmacist and her mother is a medical technologist/massage therapist. Lindvall got into modelling when she had a growth spurt in her early teen years and her friends suggested it. Tagging along with her sister, who really wanted to become a model, Angela got into the business and was spotted at a Kansas city fashion show when she was only 14. Angela took a few years to "be a kid," then signed a contract with IMG.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Angela has been on a ton of covers in countries all around the world. These include, just as a sampling from the States and UK:

UK: 'i-D' - November 1996; 'Dazed and Confused' - November 1998; 'Vogue' - September 1998, June 1999 & June 2000; 'Nova' - September 2000; 'i-D' - October 2000; 'Vogue' - January 2001; 'Vogue' - November 2004; 'i-D' - October 2006; 'Vogue' - June 2010

US: 'W' - October & December 1997; 'Elle' - August 1998; 'Vogue' - February 1998; 'W' - November 1998; 'Elle' - March 2000; 'i-D' - October 2000; 'Vogue' - November 2000; 'Nylon' - September 2001; 'Elle' - November 2001; 'Muse' - June 2010; 'Foam' - July 2012; 'Corduroy' - Winter 2012

In short, Angela has covers on all the top mags, including  ELLE, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire, Numero, Vogue, I-D and W.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Some recent covers as of this writing:
  • December 2015: Zoo Magazine
  • August 2015:  Elle Korea
  • May 2015:  Harper's Bazaar Singapore
She says that Paris is "bit more relaxed" than Milan, "calmer and more organized." The hours in Milan are crazy, it is more business-like in Paris.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com

Angela has some prestigious shoots in her past besides Victoria's Secret. She was in the 2003 and 2004 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issues. She also appeared in the 1999 and 2001 Pirelli Calendars. Only the top, top girls get those slots. She gets shot by people like Patrick Demarchelier as a matter of routine.

Lindvall has branched out into acting, like many other girls of her caliber. She was in CQ (2001), Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005) and Somewhere (2010), for instance. Another big one was the Bill Murray/Charlie Sheen film A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III (ah, the stories she must have from that set...). Television appearances include Hawaii Five-0 (yes, the new one!). Angela hosted a season of Project Runway: All Stars on Lifetime.

Angela also has branched out into jewelry design and worked on the Jijau collection for John Hardy. She has her own line with them, "Angela by John Hardy." Angela's designs reflect her interests in ancient and exotic cultures. She donates some of the profits to charity, such as Forest Ethics (Angela is very green in more ways than one).

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Angela has survived tragedy. Her older sister Audrey Lindvall - the one who really wanted to be a model? -  also became an IMG model. What a successful family! Unfortunately, Audrey passed away in 2006 in a horrible road accident.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Whilst on vacation in Tortola in the British Virgin Islands, Angela met William Edwards, a South African diver. They married in 2002, when she gave birth to their first son. Angela had a second son in 2005. The two divorced in 2006.
