Photographer Matt Irwin went backstage during the most recent Victoria’s Secret annual runway lingerie extravaganza which took place on December 3, 2008 in Miami, and took these glorious snaps of several of the models in full regalia for the May 2009 issue of Vogue Russia.

The hot collection of photos, which captures the models posing behind the scenes in pin up style postures, was published as part of an editorial called “Angel Day”. The models featured are Abbey Lee Kershaw, Doutzen Kroes, Angela Lindvall, Lara Stone, Carmen Kass, Sessilee Lopez, Julia Stegner, Candice Swanepoel and Maryna Linchuk.
