We can’t get enough of these heaven-sent hotties.

Here at Maxim, we’re a fan of models of all sizes and origins, from the rising stars at top modeling agencies to the lovely up-and-comers using Instagram to break into the fashion world

But at the end of the day, our love and loyalties lie with the exquisite women hand-picked by Victoria’s Secret each year to become the brand’s signature Angels.

Many of them just walked in the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, where they looked absolutely heavenly.


While we’ve put Martha Hunt and Jasmine Tookes on Maxim covers this year, there’s never a bad time to pay tribute to the beautiful Angels who make our lives just a little bit better just by waking up in the morning.

Below, a tribute to God’s most beautiful creatures:

They’re absolutely stunning, like Taylor Hill…
