The departure of Karlie Kloss and Doutzen Kroes from Victoria's Secret earlier this year, left a rather big hole in the prestigious Angels line-up.

But not for long, as it seems Elsa Hosk is the latest model to land a pair of wings with the news she has won a 'Contract Angel' title with the brand.

Although no official announcement has been made by the American lingerie brand, Hosk's model agency IMG has updated her profile with the news.

"She served as a brand ambassador for its [Victoria's Secret] Pink line for two consecutive years, and recently received the company's prestigious “Contract Angel” title" the IMG website states.

The 26 year old Swedish model began her modelling career at the age of 14 and juggled her fashion career with a stint playing basketball in the Swedish Women's basketball league.

Hosk has walked in runway shows for the likes of Christian Dior, Giambattista Valli and Oscar de la Renta and landed high profile advertising campaigns for Guess, H&M, CoverGirl Cosmetics and Barneys.

She is also involved in charitable work with FAIR girls, an anti-human-trafficking organization.

Although Hosk has modelled for Victoria's Secret since 2011 and has walked in numerous shows, she has not been granted Angel status, until now.

Hosk joins Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel and Lily Aldridge in the current line-up of Victoria's Secret Angels.
