Victoria's Secret models are "rarer than the world's top-performing" athletes.

Ed Razek, the chief marketing officer of the fashion label, believes the women chosen as Angels to represent the brand are unique. Angels star in the annual Victoria's Secret fashion show, an epic event which costs more than NZ$14.5 million to produce.

"Angels are a rarer thing than the world's top-performing superstar athletes," Razek told UK Vogue.

The current Angels include the likes of Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes and Erin Heatherton.

Kerr, 28, bounced back just eight weeks after giving birth to her son Flynn with husband Orlando Bloom in January 2011.

"It was easy," she said. "I think it had a lot to do with breastfeeding, and I did yoga throughout my entire pregnancy."

She also trains with ankle weights, has oxygen facials once a month and follows a strict diet.

Lily Donaldson, who was also included in this year's line-up of Angels, managed to hit the runway following a horse riding accident last summer. She was told she wouldn't be able to walk for another eight weeks but recovered sooner than expected thanks to a rigorous routine of physiotherapy, Pilates, yoga and swimming.

"You have to completely reprogramme the way you walk for this show," she said.

"That boyish hunched thing just isn't appropriate. You're encouraged to use your hips and stick out your bum, show your personality, interact with the audience and celebrate being a woman. It's a lot of fun."
