Gigi Hadid has finally earned her wings.
The 20-year-old model has been cast in the iconic 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, where she’ll strut her stuff alongside some of the most famous supermodels in the biz.
VS posted a video of Gigi auditioning and ultimately landing the part, and it’s too cute to handle. Gigi can be seen modeling simple black lingerie, beaming and giving a cheeky kiss at the end of the makeshift runway. Ed Razek, senior creative of Victoria’s Secret and chief marketing officer of its parent company, then asks her, “What are you doing on November 9th and 10th?” Gigi squeals “I don’t know!” and he replies, “Why don’t you come join us?”
That’s when Gigi appropriately freaks out, as she drops to the floor with her hands over her mouth, screaming “REALLY?!”
She posted a screenshot of the vid to Instagram, writing, Couldn't keep back my tears!!!! Anyone that grew up with me knows that getting this show has been a dream of mine forever! THANK YOU @victoriassecret & @ed_razek! One of the happiest moments of my life. #vsfashionshow2015.”
Ever the supportive boyfriend, Joe Jonas congratulated his certified Angel on Twitter, saying he’s “so happy” for her.
This is an especially big accomplishment for Gigi, considering she auditioned for the show last year but didn’t land a spot. She spoke about the rejection with Vogue Australia, saying, “Obviously, Victoria’s Secret has been a huge dream of mine my entire life. But my audition was the first time I really went for it. They asked me to come to the casting, and I trained every day and worked so, so hard for it. And you know what? At the end of the day, I was just too shy.”
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs Dec. 8 and will feature performances by Rihanna, Selena Gomez and The Weeknd.
