Make no mistake, Stella Maxwell thinks being a Victoria's Secret Angel is awesome. "[There are] No misconceptions — it's probably just the most fun part of my job," she said with a ginormous smile when I talked to her at lunch. We were celebrating the new Victoria's Secret Dream Angels collection with a little party, and Romee Strijd was there, too. Both girls made one thing very clear throughout the two hours I spent with them: they are so much more than VS Angels.
"When do you fly out to Paris?" Stella leaned over the table to ask Romee while we were eating, a casual reminder that Fashion Month isn't over and bookings are still underway. There are plenty more Fall 2017 runways to walk in Europe. Being tied to the Victoria's Secret brand doesn't mean prepping for the annual show year round, it just means prepping for all the other gigs you've got lined up plus the annual show.
That's because most of these women, Romee and Stella included, model full time. You might be surprised to find out how training for Victoria's Secret is different than training for Fashion Week, or which big event Romee and Stella prefer over all. Scroll to get a complete rundown, and discover the designers Romee and Stella most enjoyed walking for this season.
