Soon after she walked in the 2011 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and did a photo-shoot for the PINK-line with fellow model Shanina Shaik. Her first Victoria’s Secret fashion show casting was actually in 2010, but she was ultimately not cast for that year’s show.
In April 2012, Garrn was reported incorrectly by the media to have been chosen to become an official Victoria’s Secret Angel.

On 17 April 2012, Garrn and the Victoria’s Secret Angels, Erin Heatherton and Lindsay Ellingson, launched the Victoria’s Secret “Love Is Heavenly” fragrance in a Victoria’s Secret store in SoHo. In November 2012, she returned to the catwalk of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for the second time, closing the show. She also walked the show in 2013 and again in the 2018 show after a hiatus.
Garrn was cast to play the role of Reeva Steenkamp in the 2017 Lifetime movie Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer.
