Favorite Traditions with The Cast of our Holiday 2023 Campaign 

Sure, when you take a trip over to VictoriasSecret.com, our models are showing off the glamorous side of the festive season. However, when you strip back all the hair, makeup, and wardrobe, our starring talent appreciates the most important things like family, friends, and lots of food.  

Taylor Hill   

“My favorite holiday tradition is decorating the tree with my family. My mom keeps all the ornaments that we used to get when we were kids, and we would put them all on the tree from when we were born until when we were teenagers. And it’s pretty cool to see the past all on our tree.”  

“Every year my husband makes me a scrap book of all our pictures together. He did it when we first started dating and then he’s done it every year since, so that’s one of my favorite gifts and I cry like a baby.” 


Jill Kortleve   

“My favorite holiday tradition is just having breakfast with the whole family and then going outside and building a snowman.” 

Abby Champion  

“We go with my cousins to a steakhouse every Christmas Eve, and it’s my favorite tradition.”  

“My mom makes cinnamon rolls fresh every Christmas morning, and they’re my favorite! They’ve got dough, they’ve got cinnamon, they’ve got icing, they’ve got butter—that’s really all I know because I can’t give away the secret recipe.”  

Mayowa Nicholas   

“I’m like the holiday person. I want to get the tree, throw pillows—the Christmas throw pillows—I get that! Everything has to be perfect.” 

“My mom makes this Nigerian jollof rice during holidays, and when I tell you that is exactly what I look forward to—that is the best thing.”
