Alexina Graham, the First Redhead to Become Victoria’s Secret Angel

Victoria’s Secret has its first red-haired Angel, the chosen one is the 29-year-old British model Alexina Graham who, after parading two years for the famous lingerie brand, has now obtained the legendary “wings” already embellished by tops of the likes of Adriana Lima and Gisele Bündchen. “This is a dream come true! Thank you Victoria’s Secret for believing in this redhead”  the model wrote in a post on Instagram accompanying the video of the announcement, which delighted her more than 525,000 followers.

That red head of hair that Alexina goes to – rightly so – so proud, in the past instead created many problems for her, exposing her to the wickedness of other children. “Like most people with red hair, I too was bullied at school, simply because I stood on others – the model said in a long interview with Glamor – and it took me some time to overcome those bullying. In the last ten years I have had to face so many things both in my career and in my life and this recognition is my revenge for those bullie.

Thanks to the dance she started studying at age six, Graham learned to stand on the catwalk and gain self-confidence. “The ballet had a huge impact on my safety – he admitted – and made me the woman I am today. And to the girls with red hair who are bullied I say: ” be confident on yourself and don’t listen to what others say about you, rather smile at them and kill them with kindness”. When she learned she had become an Angel, she was having dinner with one of his best friends in a restaurant in Soho, New York, and he thought it was all a joke. “My agent sent me a screenshot of an e-mail saying” you’re joining the Victoria’s Secret family in 2019 “, so I called her thinking it was a joke and she told me instead that it was all true . At that point my friend and I ordered champagne! ” Since the age of 16 Alexina has not missed a Victoria’s Secret show and her source of inspiration has always been Adriana Lima, but now those iconic “wings” will bring her. “To be honest, it still seems so surreal – the model concluded – but I worked hard to achieve this goal and right now I feel a mixture of nervousness, emotion and excitement”.
