Super Bowl Venuses from Victoria's Secret

Prinsloo, Aldridge, Lima, Kroes and Swanepoel

It's Super Bowl weekend, which means a late night for Triple P on Sunday!  Sadly, watching on the BBC we won't get to see any of the famously expensive Super Bowl commercials from the likes of Victoria's Secret. Usually we feature cheerleaders in our Super Bowl post but this year Victoria's Secret have dressed up some of their supermodels in football gear and very fine they look too!  There has been a suggestion that the rather more dressed than usual models are a reaction to NFL incidents of domestic abuse and advertisers this year are backing away from exploitative images of women as a result.

They have used a number of different girls in their stills and video so first we will  look at the five ladies depicted in the stills, shot in Los Angeles.

Wearing number 15 is Brazilian model Adriana Lima.

Age: 34
Height: 5' 10"
Statistics: 34-24-35.5

Lima, a devout Catholic, has appeared in Victoria's Secret Super Bowl commercials before.  Last year she was the second highest earning model in the world.  She has two children.

Wearing number 28 is Dutch model Doutzen Kroes.

Age: 31
Height: 5' 9"
Statistics: 34.5-24.5-34.5

Unfortunately saddled with a name that sounds like a digestive complaint, Kroes also has two children.  When she was younger she wanted to be a speed skater like both her parents.

Wearing number 12 is South African model Candice Swanepeol

Age: 27
Height: 5' 9.5"
Statistics: 33-23-34.5

Swanepoel is one of the top ten earning models in the world and last year became engaged to her boyfriend of ten years.

Wearing number 57 is American model Lily Aldridge.

Age: 30
Height: 5' 8"
Statistics: 33-23-33

Aldridge is also a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and is the daughter of February 1976 Playboy Playmate of the Month, Laura Lyons.

Wearing number 42 is Namibian model Behati Prinsloo.

Age: 26
Height: 5' 11"
Statistics: 32-25-35

Prinsloo is married to Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.

Ambrosio, Hill, Tookes, Hosk and Lima

In the accompanying Victoria's Secret video of the girls playing a mock football game there is a different line up, with only Adriana Lima being included from the stills.

Wearing number 83 is Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio.

Age: 34
Height: 5' 9.5"

Hill is one of the most recent Victoria's Secret models here, first appearing as such in 2015 and is also the youngest of the nine featured.

Wearing number 18 is Swedish model Elsa Hosk.

Age: 27
Height: 5' 9.5"
