Post the 2011 Victoria's Secret fashion show last week, we take a look at the hottest VS Angels of all time -- vote for your favourite!

To call it just a fashion show would be an understatement.

When lingerie giant Victoria's Secret stages its annual catwalk extravaganza, its sexiest, best-known faces -- the 'Angels' -- put on a display of sizzling sensuality, mixed in with a lot of fun, good cheer and naughtiness.

Sixteen years ago, in 1995, the brand started off with its first showing and its most visible spokeswomen who modelled the lingerie line were tagged its 'Angels'.

Today, Victoria's Secret continues to maintain a lineup of supermodels and supermodels-in-the-making to front the label -- currently, 11 are listed on their website.

But if you were to consider all the Angels of all time, who would emerge the shining star? In the following pages, we present you (in alphabetical order) all the sirens who have donned the beautiful wings at some point -- take our poll and let us know who you think was the best ever!

Lily Aldridge

An Angel since 2009, 25-year-old Lily's all-American appeal and fun attitude ensure she has a knockout effect at every show!
