Heidi Klum hangs up her Victoria's Secret angel wings

Friday October 1, 2010

She the brand's most famous face – and body – but Heidi Klum has announced the end of her time as a Victoria's Secret angel after 13 years.

The mum-of-four, who stole the show in 2009 when she walked the runway in lingerie weeks after giving birth, has confirmed she is leaving the company to focus on other projects.

"All good things have to come to an end. I will always love Victoria's Secret. It has been an absolutely amazing time," said the 37-year-old.

Heidi made her debut as a Victoria's Secret model in 1997, before becoming an angel in 1999 and going on to be crowned 'Head Angel' in 2002.

A place on the Victoria's Secret line-up is highly coveted in the industry.

Former angels include Stephanie Seymour, Gisele Bundchen and Tyra Banks, while those currently with wings include Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima and Doutzen Kroes.
