Stella Maxwell, whose father is Irish and we therefore are claiming as our own, brought her style A-game while promoting the lingerie brand's new Body by Victoria collection in London.

She was born in Belgium to Irish parents Stella Maynes and Maurice Maxwell, who worked as a diplomat.

The captivating beauty was raised between Belgium, New Zealand, Australia and the UK as her family travelled the world to follow her father's work.

"I just knew I had a limited amount of time to give my energy and show them what I have to offer. When my agent rang me and told me about the promotion to becoming an Angel I was a bit overwhelmed. I got emotional, it made me really happy.

''They choose the sexiest girls and they have the sexiest lingerie. You grow up watching it, every girl is just amazing, every year. To do it, I couldn't be happier.''
