Why we love Selita Ebanks
If ever a name seemed to mark someone out to become a model then surely Selita Ebanks is it. We mean, can you really imagine anyone called Selita not being hot? Well if you can, don’t. There. Still, you can’t help but feel that even without the name Selita still had a bit of a head start on the rest of the modelling world when she was lucky enough to be born on one of the Cayman Islands. If your hometown weather basically forces you to walk around in a bikini 24/7 you’re going to want to look good doing it.
And look good walking around she certainly does. In fact, Selita is so good at it that the story of her ‘discovery’ says that after moving to New York she walked in to a theme park and was spotted by an agent from one of the world’s biggest model agencies on her way through the gates. And what did that bit of right-place-right-time do for her? Well it saw her modelling for the likes of Ralph Lauren, Abercrombie & Fitch and Tommy Hilfiger.
But we know her best for her work with Victoria’s Secret. Yes, we know her. If you follow FHM.com enough you’ll know that we know all of the VS models very well indeed. Selita was one of the big guns – a Victoria’s Secret Angel – from 2005 until 2009. That’s top level modelling in our book, as is an appearance on Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue. Ergo; she’s big time.
