Stella Maxwell doesn't think models ''always have to look perfect''.

The 24-year-old beauty - who became a Victoria's Secret Angel earlier this year - has insisted there are numerous misconceptions surrounding the life of a lingerie model.

She explained: ''I think the biggest misconception is that the models don't get along, that's not true! Or that you always have to look perfect - the thing about Victoria's Secret is that they always make you feel really good, it's always really comfortable on set, they keep it consistent with hair and make-up so it's like a big family so you're never with strangers feeling uncomfortable.

''That's what they like to do, develop people into the brand and keep you there.''

Stella, who is currently dating American singer Miley Cyrus, is part of the new generation of Victoria's Secret Angels, but she's insisted the new girls feel connected to the older generation, which includes the likes of Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima.

She told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: ''I think we're all very similar as a family, they've connected us really well. It's nice to do jobs with them and see how they promote and represent the brand.

''Each girl represents a different part of the brand and brings their own individual style and I think the 10 new girls are the same.''
