Lindsay Ellingson may be relatively new to Victoria's Secret, but this Angel is making a huge splash.

The SoCal beauty has scored her first Victoria's Secret Swim Catalogue cover.

Shot by Russell James on Necker Island -- Sir Richard Branson's private Caribbean getaway -- Ellingson channels her inner beach bunny in a black cut-out number featuring a removable bandeau top paired with tousled beach hair and minimal makeup.

The former marine biology major turned catwalk star is joined by Victoria's Secret bombshells Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Candice Swanepoel and Erin Heatherton in the catalogue.

Aside from serious providing ambition for us to hit the gym, the sexy shoot has us clamoring for a winter vacay. A secluded island with sun to spare? Some girls have all the luck.
