Barbara Palvin has been given her Victoria's Secret wings.

The 25-year-old Hungarian supermodel has graduated to "Angel" status with the lingerie giant, years after she first took to the runway for the annual Victoria's Secret fashion show back in 2012.

"There were times where I let my own thoughts hold me back and it was a hard climb away from those but my family, my team, Ed, and everyone at VS they were always there to support me and uplift me," the model divulged on Instagram, announcing the news of her latest career milestone to her 11 million followers.

"I am proud to represent Hungary, and most importantly, all of you in this new chapter of my life!"

Palvin has seen her career skyrocket over the past few years, taking to the runway for labels including Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana, in addition to landing magazine covers for Vogue Portugal, Grazia Italy and Harper's Bazaar Australia.

She has recently appeared in campaigns for Nina Ricci, Giorgio Armani and Fendi, in addition to starring in the Victoria's Secret Spring 2019 ad campaign.

In landing a coveted spot as an official "Angel", Palvin is in good company: fellow models holding the rank include Jasmine Tookes, Taylor Hill, Candice Swanepoel and Elsa Hosk. – AFP Relaxnews
