Angels Among Us-------
“To walk the Victoria’s Secret show is obviously every American girl’s dream. I feel pretty lucky to have crossed that one off my bucket list at such a young age,” 19-year-old Karlie Kloss (above) said yesterday after her Angel debut, at the VS after-party at the Dream Downtown. “I got to dance with Adam Levine and Kanye, and wear a pair of wings. Onstage, I felt on top of the world, it was wild.” She wasn’t the only catwalk veteran to make her VS debut last night. Joining her—both on the catwalk and at the party—were Karmen Pedaru, Caroline Brasch Nielsen, Sui He, and Joan Smalls. Naturally, all the established Angels made winged appearances, too. Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, and Anne Vyalitsina have all been around the VS block many times before. But according to Anne V. (who high-fived her boyfriend, Adam Levine, during his Maroon 5 set during the show), the spectacular ups the ante annually—and demands that the girls do the same. “This year was particularly competitive…like getting our bodies ready and really getting into the workouts,” she told Style.com. Those long hours in the gym paid off. “Everybody looked over-the-top amazing,” she gushed.
