Etymology of Victoria:
From the Latin name Victoria; also shortened from María (de la) Victoria, a Roman Catholic epithet of the Virgin Mary as ‘Our Lady of Victory’.
1. A female given name.
Mary is Astarte, Satan’s human wife in the pre-flood world, also known as Isis/Athena/Chang’e/Ishtar/Aphrodite/Venus/Inanna (see Shroud of Turin, Pagan gods, Pagan feasts, Rihanna, the Goddess.
She is the goddess after which Victoria’s Secret is named.
Victoria’s Secret started working with renowned models in the early 1990s, with the hiring of Stephanie Seymour, Karen Mulder, Yasmeen Ghauri, Elaine Irwin and Frederique van der Wal. These models helped the brand gain notice and soon enough were featured in televised commercials. Most of these models are Monarch slaves (see Monarch slaves).
Angels is one of Victoria’s Secret’s lingerie lines, which was launched in 1997, with a commercial featuring Helena Christensen, Karen Mulder, Daniela Peštová, Stephanie Seymour, and Tyra Banks as well as rock star Tom Jones. The commercial was a major success and the Angels began to be featured in various commercials, alongside other contract models for the brand such as Yasmeen Ghauri, Inés Rivero and Laetitia Casta. From then onwards, the term Angel started to become synonymous with being a contracted spokesmodel for the brand and in February 1998, the Angels made their runway debut at Victoria’s Secret’s 4th annual fashion show, with Chandra North filling in for Christensen.
They are called ‘angels’ because the fallen angels’ human wives are identified with their husbands, and portrayed as female angels in statues/sculptures, carvings, etchings and paintings.
During Victoria’s Secret annual fashion shows, some of the ‘angels’ walk the runway wearing angel wings:
