After welcoming 10 new "Angels," Victoria’s Secret made an announcement. The lingerie company has hired model Rachel Hilbert as the new face of the brand’s Pink collection.
The 20-year-old blond beauty from Rochester, New York, has worked with the lingerie label in recent years. Most recently, she hosted a Victoria’s Secret spring break beach bash in March with Gigi Hadid and Cody Simpson in Miami. Hilbert told Us Weekly that she couldn’t be happier about her new role. “It’s an honor to be working with such an amazing brand -- and to follow in the footsteps of previous Pink models like Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo and Elsa Hosk.”
Hilbert said that as soon as Hosk heard the news, she reached out with some special advice for Hilbert. Hosk told Hilbert to be herself, and to take every day as it comes. Hilbert said she is grateful that the supermodel was excited for her and made her feel confident about being the new Pink model. On a sweet note, she added that Hosk helped her through her first event.
Hilbert is modeling the line’s rainbow-hued bikinis for summer in the new campaign. In her first official ads, she can be seen sporting a comfy coral-colored hoodie and black yoga pants while playfully posing with the brand’s adorable dog mascot in a giant polka-dot shopping bag. In a second image she is pictured in printed lingerie.
She told Ocean Drive magazine last year that Pink has become a family for her and she has been able to travel the world and meet new people. Hilbert also gushed about the fact that she gets to model clothes that she actually like to wear and even her friends wear. Besides, she added that through Pink she gets to bring her own personality on set and express herself.
Though she is obsessed with all of Pink’s products, she loves the new Gym Pant because, according to her, it has a stretchy feel like a legging, but retains the soft feel of sweatpants. The must-have beauty product for Hilbert is Face Oasis face wash, which she uses with Simple moisturizer, the model said.
