It's launched careers and sent existing ones into the stratosphere. Can you believe it's been 10 whole years since Victoria's Secret introduced the world to their iconic Angels?

Since the first perfectly manicured foot stepped onto the runway, there have been wings, diamonds, shoe malfunctions, toned tums and Seal performances aplenty. The names - Gisele, Heidi, Tyra, Karolina - are instantly recognisable and are some of the most successful and highest-paid models in the world.

To mark the occasion, Victoria's Secret has launched a 10th anniversary retrospective at New York's Herald Square flagship, where customers can see Angel history captured in photos and videos plus view some of the most famous costumes you've ever seen strut down a catwalk.

Current Angel (and token Aussie), Miranda Kerr explained: "You can go down to the store and customers can see some of the things that have happened over the last 10 years. Like, the first ever wings that were worn on the fashion show back in 1998. Or the angel wings that Heidi [Klum] wore that were 12 feet long-the hugest wings in history. A football signed by Adriana [Lima] that was signed at the Super Bowl."

The Victoria's Secret Angels retrospective runs April 17 through May, at Victoria's Secret, 1328 Broadway, New York.
