Selita Ebanks Unofficially Retires as Victoria’s Secret Angel

Everything that glitters isn’t always gold when it comes to the highly competitive fashion world.

World famous model Selita Ebanks says she’s ready to hang up her Victoria’s Secret Angel wings for good. In an interview with New York Magazine’s The Cut, Ebanks revealed that even the big named VS models have to audition each year for a spot on the coveted show. Like many aspects of the cutthroat fashion industry, Victoria’s Secret models are expected to strut their stuff before landing a spot on the show.

Before announcing her unofficial retirement she shared her views on the process during the UNICEF Snowflake Ball earlier this week. Ebanks said, “you have to show up in your panties, and you have to walk and be pleasant and say hi to everyone and hope that you’ve still got it.”
