Sara Sampaio has always been a fan of Victoria's Secret.
The 26-year-old model acquired her angel wings in 2015, but she has admitted prior to working with the fashion house she has long admired the lingerie giant because she thinks the brand turns women into ''glamazons'', which are females who look ''powerful and beautiful''.
Speaking to Elle.com, the catwalk icon said: ''Back when I wasn't even modelling, I loved Victoria's Secret. You see these women and they look so powerful and beautiful like no one can do any harm to them - they look like these glamazons. It's kind of amazing to be part of it, you do really feel like that.''
Sara is set to make her fifth appearance on the runway at this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai, China, on Monday (20.11.17), although it will air on November 28, and she is ''really proud'' she has been handpicked to represent the company. She added: ''I'm really proud to be with a company that really does support their models and treats us really well and always has us as their main priority. We have so many women who work here as well, not just models.''
Sara has recently taken to social media to speak out about working in the fashion industry and feeling pressured to pose nude for shoots, which she did not want to do.
And the muse has revealed after opening up about her experiences other models have started to talk about similar issues they have faced, which made her feel better about addressing the issue.
She said: ''On many occasions where the shoot was to not have nudity, I would arrive on set and the photographer or stylist would pressure, cajole or demand that I pose nude because I had done it in the past. I was bullied. Many times, I was showed nude images of myself as examples to coerce me into posing nude, and whenever I stood my ground and refused, I was criticised and judged as being difficult.
''When I shared that story, I had so many of my friends and other models come to me and were like, 'Oh my God, that happened to me, thank you for speaking out' and if any of them would have talked about their stories, maybe that wouldn't have happened to me. So that's why I felt it was so important to share my story; hopefully if I'm saving one girl from having to go through what I did, it will be worth it.''
