Danish model Josephine Skriver, has unveiled a gorgeous look that will be showcased in this years Victoria’s Secret Fashion. The 23 year old beauty and recently made Victoria’s Secret Angel, will be walking down the runway in a customized Swarvoski look.
“This is a serious workout” said Skriver as she donned the piece with sleeves that weigh 10 pounds each. This sparkling dream was made by an in house design team and features 450,000 Swarvoski crystals. Swarvoski Senior VP commented to US magazine, “This year marks the fourteenth anniversary of Swarvoski’s partnership with Victoria’s Secret, and we could not be more excited to continue our collaboration.” He continued, “Throughout our time working together, we’ve sought to push boundaries with innovative use of crystals on the runway and captivate consumers with dashing retail collections. We cannot wait to showcase what’s in store for December 5.”
Skriver teased, “I’m just going to wear this to the gym” as she showcased the 3,000 strands of crystals that fell from her arms. It’s no wonder the sleeves are so heavy. To add even more weight and beauty to this unreal piece, Skriver will be wearing thigh high boots (designed by Brian Atwood) that will have an additional 1,630 crystals.
Skriver has taken to social media to celebrate her huge success. In the photo above we can see the surprise gift Ed Razek, chief marketing officer at VS, gave Skriver. The ring was a way of celebrating her first show as an Angel. A ring with a pair of wings. So adorable.
Skiver has been walking down the VS runway for 3 years now and finally gaining the title of an Angel, well it was a surreal moment for her. The model said, “I’ve worked with the company for a few years. Getting the title was the biggest dream of my life and I’d been working my way toward it.” She continued, “It was a cool moment… I think I celebrated for two weeks straight.”
Still can't believe it get to walk the #vsfashionshow as an angel this year ????????????????????!!!

She has definitely been working hard as she said being an Angel is a year round gig. At her fitting she had this to say, “I did ‘arm day’ yesterday, so I’m a little sore for this. I definitely amp up my workout [in advance of the show], but being an Angel, it’s year round. I add on a lot of weights; I love building my shape. For me, it’s about getting strong and being able to walk out there feeling sexy.” Today (Nov. 2) she participated in the Facebook Live event ‘Train Like An Angel’ alongside Jasmine Tookes, this years wearer of the VS Fantasy Bra.

Don’t forget to tune in December 5th at 10 p.m. ET on CBS!
