Every girl admires the enviable bodies Victoria's Secret Angels have, and here we are about to reveal the top five secrets to obtaining their looks, style and, of course, perfect figures. Now you are about to know the truth to being like Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel and many more.

First on the list, according to KIIS1065 Sydney, to be a Victoria's Secret Angel, one has to "be in peak condition," as claimed by creative director of VS fashion show Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou. "It's like being an Olympian," she said in the last year's event.

One of the known Angels, the 34-year-old spokesmodel for the brand's "PINK" line, Ambrosio, agreed as she said: "You work out as an athlete." She added that aspiring catwalkers should put all their mind and everything into it to be physically active.

Second, according to fitness blogger Poppy Cross, the lingerie brand requires their models to be 5 feet 9 inches tall and have 24-inch waistline or smaller. They should follow a strict diet and religiously stick to their workout routines and weight training.

In fact, the writer underwent the challenge to be a VS Angel herself. She began with 22% body fat and has to end with 18% or lower. As she eventually adopted her new regime, she said she found herself exercising for six to seven times per week, even twice in a day.

For our third, as added by Elle, aspiring VS Angels "should always be ready." They should invariably be prepared anytime and be constantly on the go. They should be hair and make-up ready every time they go out and be wearing heels everywhere; they should incessantly be photo op ready.

Fourth, the models should know a number of poses. The unofficial poses the VS Angels are known to be doing are the kissy face, blowing a kiss, peace smile, big grin and wink, as well as the hands-up-in-the-air pose like you are having a very good time.

Last and the most important, they should act like an Angel themselves. For VS Angels, attitude is everything. During any VS fashion show, the Angels always show a jolly and playful spirit, just like what a real Angel does.
