She walked down the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in 1997, 1998, 1999, and 2000. Caste was one of the company's signature Victoria' Secret Angels from 1998 to 2000. She claims that her career with Victoria's Secret ended because she was "too much of [a] rebel".[9] She also appeared in three consecutive Sports Illustrated Swimsuit IssuesRolling Stone, and the Pirelli Calendar 1999 by Herb Ritts and 2000 by Annie Leibovitz.
In 1999, Casta was ranked first in a national survey ordered by the French Mayors Association to decide who should be the new model for the bust of Marianne, an allegorical symbol of the French Republic, which stands inside every French town hall.[10]
Casta became the focus of a controversy[11] when, after being selected to be Marianne, newspapers in Britain and France[12] reported that she had relocated to London where taxes on high earners are lower. Casta's father said she went to London for professional reasons; on a TV show, she also said that she rented a flat in London to be near her boyfriend.[13] The French minister of the interior spoke about Casta on the radio;[14][15] comparing the advantages of living in France with regard to the drawbacks of London[16]after political opponents used Casta's relocation to London as an opportunity to criticise the government.[17][18]Image result for laetitia casta
