The main reason we admire Victoria’s Secret Angels? They’re not like us.
Or are they?
In learning about the newcomers, we discovered something we really shouldn’t be surprised by in 2017: they’re interested in the same things we are. From ATVs to pizza parties, if you happen to meet one of these lingerie superstars on the street, here are your conversation starters.
Shared interest: Harry Potter
You can tell she’s no mere muggle because she’s wearing a shirt with Dobby the house elf. Not the most photogenic choice (Dobby, not Gizele), but an expression of true fandom nonetheless.
Shared interest: Fresh fruit
And you thought supermodels only ate activated charcoal.
Shared interest: The Mayweather/McGregor fight
OK, so she doesn’t explicitly say it here, but you better believe a redhead from the U.K. who boxes was watching on Saturday night.
Shared interest: ATVs
You will ride shotgun and like it!
Shared interest: New York City parks, coffee and denim on denim
Throw in the New York Times crossword and we’ve got the new lazy Sunday queen.
Shared interest: Panorama NYC
As you make your way to the front at this music festival next summer, try not to elbow any Angels.
Shared interest: Pizza parties
A cynic might say, “She didn't eat any of that pizza — it’s a photo op!” We say: toss us a giraffe onesie.
Shared interest: A bang-up Broadway musical
No doubt the Great White Way is changing (see: SpongeBob SquarePants), but the glitz and glamour of bygone days lives on.
Shared interest: Watermelon with the seeds
Slow down and appreciate this sweet, sweet excuse to expectorate.
Shared interest: Road biking
As they always say, better cows and cornfields than taxis and tourists.
Shared interest: Spring break, forever
Must be nice.
Shared interest: Real talk
“I like when people are real, like if they don’t like me, they let me know straight up. Then we’ll be all good.” This is how America comes together.
