Another model will be gracing the runway alongside the Victoria’s Secret Angels this November. In an extremely moving Instagram post this weekend, Winnie Harlow revealed that she’d been cast in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and would finally be making her debut as a VS Angel.

Taking to Instagram to announce the news, Harlow described how nervous she was going into the casting at Victoria’s Secret, and how she was “beyond honored to be given the opportunity to try out.” Clearly, everyone was impressed with Harlow, as she will be walking as one of the Victoria’s Secret Angels this fall.

Overwhelmed by the magnitude of the accomplishment, Harlow thanked just about everybody in her Instagram announcement, most of all pointing “to my fans who have been pushing me forward to this point in my career.”

Harlow also revealed, “I can’t believe this!! Thank you for giving me all the energy and kindness in that room! Thank you for allowing me to walk for VICTORIA’S SECRET!”

From her appearance on America’s Next Top Model, to her uncensored Instagram presence, Harlow has been making a huge impact on the world. Outspoken about her vitiligo, a condition that results in the loss of skin colour in patches, Harlow’s fierce attitude and unmistakeable style make her a perfect fit for Victoria’s Secret.
