Toni Garrn (born 7 July 1992) is a German model who has walked in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show several times. After scuffling about for a bit, in 2008 she got her big break in the fashion industry after signing an exclusive contract with Calvin Klein.
Toni Garrn (original name Antonia Garrn) is a top fashion model from Hamburg, Germany. Her father works for an oil refinery and she has an older brother, Niklas, who is also a model. Garrn moved around a lot as a child due to her father's job: at two years old, she moved with her family to London; at six, they went to Athens. Only at the age of 10 did she return to her native Hamburg. She started her modelling career early, being discovered at age 13 by Claudia Midolo, the owner of German model agency Modelwerk. This happened during the 2006 FIFA World Cup in her hometown Hamburg. Later, Toni signed with New York agency Women Management.
Toni has a large involvement with Victoria's Secret. In Fall 2011, she started modeling for the brand, firstly appearing in their catalogs to promote the clothing line. She auditioned to walk in 2010 but failed, then walked in the 2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show (and 2012 and 2013 as well).
Toni did a photo-shoot for the PINK-line with fellow model Shanina Shaik in 2011. Then, in April 2012, in a major embarrassment, Garrn was believed to have become an official Victoria's Secret Angel due to a misleading tweet from the official Victoria's Secret Twitter-account which mentioned Garrn as "#NewAngel". Unfortunately, Garrn was merely chosen to star in a Victoria's Secret campaign for the "Dream Angel" line alongside Erin Heatherton and Lindsay Ellingson as well as the "Angels in love" commercial featuring Elyse Taylor. So, in a sense Toni was an Angel - just not officially (or contractually, which is the important part).
Garrn and official Victoria's Secret Angels Erin Heatherton and Lindsay Ellingson launched the Victoria's Secret "Love Is Heavenly" fragrance in a Victoria's Secret store in SoHo on April 17, 2012. In November 2012, Toni closed the show Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. She was not chosen to walk in the 2014 show or since.

Her relationship with big Victoria's Secret fan Leo DiCaprio was a hot tabloid rumor, but reports are that they eventually broke up. She also apparently dated NBA star Chandler Parsons, but they also broke up.
