Josephine Skriver has credited her fellow Victoria's Secrets models as her ''new family''.

The 23-year-old model - who has been modelling for the lingerie giant since 2013, but acquired her angel wings in February this year - has admitted despite being one of the newcomers she is glad the other catwalk icons have ''embraced'' her and has described the stars as her ''sisters''.

Speaking to PEOPLE about the girls, the blonde beauty said: ''Honestly, it's been an amazing thing.

''I've never met a group of girls who embraced me so quickly. Even though I'm the newest one, they've been embracing me. I feel like I have a new family. I have 14 sisters on speed dial now who can help you with everything. I've never had sisters before, and now I have 14 of them.''

And the Danish star - who adorned a showstopping garment made of 450,000 Swarovski crystals and 3,000 strands of Swarovski crystal-covered fringing, which weighed 10lbs per sleeve, for the fashion extravaganza - has revealed she felt great ''dripping in crystals''.

Speaking prior to her runway appearance, Josephine said: ''It's really amazing dripping in crystals and shining in sparkle. It's kind of like somebody dumped me in a bath of crystals and I rose up out of it. It's a little heavy!''

And prior to the show, which took place in the Grand Palais in Paris, France, on Wednesday (30.11.16), the star has admitted she ''amped up'' her fitness regime to enhance ''every curve''.

Speaking about her preparation prior to strutting on the runway in the skimpy ensemble, she said: ''I've always been an athlete, but I'm amping up my workout routine a little for the show.

''I want to enhance every curve possible so I look banging hot when I go out there. So, I hit the gym a little harder. The couch will never win a fight over me.''
