Elyse Taylor shoots a Victoria's Secret fragrance campaign with Michael Bay

Another day, another Australian model scores an international fragrance campaign. Last week it was the Sunshine Coast's Codie Young - the solo face of Marc Jacobs' new Dot campaign. Now comes news that Sydney's Elyse Taylor appears in the new 'Love is Heavenly' fragrance campaign for US lingerie and swimwear giant Victoria's Secret, shot by action director Michael Bay (videos below). Taylor - a recent frontwoman of Australian swim and surf brands Tigerlily and O'Neill - is described by Victoria's Secret as a 'new face'. She co-stars in the commercial alongside two Victoria's Secret 'Angels', Erin Heatherton and Lindsay Ellingson.

This is not, in fact, Taylor's first VS gig.

Taylor walked in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in 2009. She currently appears on the Victoria's Secret website modelling new season swimwear - alongside some of the other extremely high profile Victoria's Secret Angels such as Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel.

Love or hate the beauty-pageant-on-crack factor of the annual boobs-and-baubles fest that is the Victoria Secret Fashion Show (and some really hate it), there is no denying the economic clout of a VS contract. Models with Victoria's Secret affiliations tend to dominate Forbes' annual highest-earning models list.

Stand by to see if Taylor graduates to the rank of a fully-fledged Victoria's Secret Angel, as has compatriot Miranda Kerr - who, coincidentally, was once a close friend of Taylor's.

And a Victoria's Secret commercial shoot with Michael Bay has been known to lead to bigger things still. Bay has been shooting commercials for the company for several years now and replaced Megan Fox with Victoria's Secret Angel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Transformers 3 after working with the latter on a VS job.
