The 24-year-old 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.

Stella, who was dating Miley Cyrus briefly over the summer, has been walking for the lingerie giant for the last two years but was made an official Angel earlier this year.

And she's clearly relishing the role as she proudly strutted down the runway with her wings at the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in New York.

For the 'Ice Angels' segment, the beautiful blonde wore an all-white ensemble with high waisted underwear, ski goggles and of course - fluffy white wings. She later pouted to perfection with dramatic butterfly wings.

She said before the show that her careered highlight has undoubtedly been getting her wings with Victoria's Secret, telling Vogue: ''My first casting for the show, it was memorable. I remember I was really nervous.

"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.
