Meet the newest Victoria's Secret Angel Barbara Palvin
Barbara Palvin is the latest model to join the Victoria’s Secret Angel family. She first walked down the runway for Prada in 2010 during their Milan Fashion Week show.
Since then, she has walked for a number of fashion houses including Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, and Chanel.
She was born and raised in Hungary before she was discovered walking down the street in 2006.
"I was walking on the street with my mother in Budapest, near where I live, when Balazs, who’s now my manager , saw me. He asked me if I could go to their office and took some test photos. Then I started modeling," she told W Magazine.
Palvin is part of the star-studded IMG roster that also includes Gigi and Bella Hadid and Hailey Baldwin. She was named as the beauty ambassador for Giorgio Armani in September last year, and waled her second Victoria’s Secret Show in 2018. She made her debut walking for the brand in 2012.

Unforgettable experience walking the @victoriassecret runway this year! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this wonderful opportunity, I'm so grateful to have been given this moment after six years since I first walked. Ed Razek, you genuinely are 'The Greatest Showman' along with your incredible team, and I can't tell you how important it was to me to have been given another chance to shine. For years, I didn't believe I would walk another VS runway but once I finally accepted myself and my body, I felt comfortable in my own skin; the magic happened and everything fell right into place. I feel stronger than ever and I'm only going to keep pushing and continue to show the world who I am, and no one can take that away from me. Lucky to have had infinite amounts of love and support from my family, friends, amazing boyfriend and my IMG family - I appreciate you and truly couldn't have done it without you.
The Hungarian model has 10.9 million followers on her Instagram account.
The brand has recieved a lot of positive feedback after they posted a recent picture of Palvin on their Instagram account. Social media users have spoken out about the image for being more body-inclusive.
