Gigi Hadid is returning to the Victoria’s Secret runway. After making her VS Fashion Show debut last year, the model revealed on Instagram late last night that she’ll be taking on the catwalk once again.
She coupled the post with an emotional caption:
“There is no feeling in the world like walking down this runway. I’m elated to say I’ll be returning to the @VictoriasSecret Fashion Show this year. Thank you @ed_razek for putting on the show that has been one of my greatest motivators since I was a teenage fan of the Angels, and for making this dream come true for me again. It will forever be an honor. Can’t wait to join the surreally beautiful and inspiring women that are the #vsfs2016 lineup. See you in Paris ❤️❤️??‼️”
At this year’s show, which will take place in Paris, Hadid will be joined by her younger sister Bella, who is making her VS debut. She congratulated her younger sibling when the news broke yesterday too. “A vision. So proud of you,” she wrote.
By now, 21-year-old Gigi already seems like she belongs on the VS runway, but the gig wasn’t handed to her easily. She was actually rejected from the show twice before finally landing a spot in the lineup last year. Determination really goes a long way.
