As I was finding corresponding gifs for the ranking of the Victoria’s Secret Angels, I came to the stark realization that all these women look the fucking same. No, seriously. Looking back and forth between gifs of like, Alessandra Ambrosio and Izabel Goulart (who is not an official Angel this year, but is Alessandra Ambrosio’s identical twin as I learned), I realized I could not pick these women out of a lineup of two. So I think it’s only fair that I back up such a seemingly absurd statement with real evidence so you can all see what I mean. I’m convinced all the Angels came out of the same genetic pool, so I organized them by families into the very official and accurate Victoria’s Secret Angel family tree.
Family #1: Team Tall, Dark & Handsome
I have a working theory that Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio had children, and those children are Sara Sampaio, Lily Aldridge, and Taylor Hill. Look at them. Sara has Adriana’s black hair and blue eyes, and Taylor has Alessandra’s hair, Adriana’s eyes, and Adriana’s nose. Sara’s nose is kind of a mix between Alessandra’s and Adriana’s. Now, Lily is basically just Alessandra’s direct doppelganger—she’s just as tan, she has the exact same nose, she has dark eyes—but her hair is slightly darker, a gene she obviously got from Adriana.
Family #2: Team Blondes Have More Fun
Then you have Behati Prinsloo plus Elsa Hosk/Candice Swanepoel/Martha Hunt/Romee Strijd. That latter group of women are the same fucking person, and you cannot tell me otherwise. They all have blonde hair, big blue eyes, and noses so tiny they almost don’t exist. They are interchangeable. They could be each other’s stunt doubles in movies. One of them could walk down the VS Fashion Show runway four separate times, and I would not know the difference. Please note that Romee Strijd is not Martha Hunt’s daughter, as the chart might imply; I just ran out of room and couldn’t fit them all in one horizontal line. Anyway, these Angels all mixed up their genes in a test tube or some shit and came out with Josephine Skriver, who has Candice/Elsa/etc.’s face and Behati’s hair. Then you’ve got Stella (who I would just like to note should have gone into porn because she has the best porn star name of all time), who kinda-sorta has Behati and Romee’s face, with Candice et. al’s hair and eye coloring. Boom.
Family #3: Team Not Actually A Family
Then we’re left with Jasmine Tookes and Lais Ribiero, who don’t resemble each other at all—or really any of the other Angels, for that matter—so I lumped them together by virtue of the fact that they actually look like individuals. Good job, ladies/Victoria’s Secret. We got two. I didn’t make a very informative infographic for it because, like I said, I don’t think they’re actually related in my conspiracy universe. But I tried. (They will put that on my tombstone.)
So that’s it. My life’s work. All I can do is pray that I never get mugged by a Victoria’s Secret Angel, because I will be of no help to the police.
