Chanel Iman has officially been welcomed into the ranks of the Victoria’s Secret Angels.
The 2010 Victoria’s Secret’s Fashion Show came with a very special set of wardrobe pieces for the model: Her first pair of wings.
Chanel, who has been working with the world’s sexiest brand for over a year, was brought to tears when she was presented with a long, fluffy pair of wings at a fitting for the show.
The wings are a huge part of every VS show, and Chanel is the latest brown-skinned beauty to wear them. She’s in good company considering that Tyra Banks and Selita Ebanks have also donned the pretty plumage.
For her first flight, Chanel strutted down the runway to Akon’s “Angel”—not a bad coronation in our opinion.
In case you missed the 2010 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show when it aired on CBS last night, you can watch the whole thing on CBS.com. The network will also re-air the show on December 8.
