Dreams really do come true. Just ask Gigi Hadid.
The 20-year-old model has landed a coveted spot in this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. A dream job she has wanted since starting in the modeling business.
The lingerie company confirmed the casting news by sharing her audition tape in which Hadid learns she is the newest Angel-in-the-making.
In the clip, the daughter of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster struts her best catwalk in matching black bra and panties for the show’s executive producers Ed Razek and Monica Mitro.
“Anyone that grew up w/me knows that this show has been a dream of mine 4ever! THANK U VS & Ed! Brought me to tears,” Hadid shared the exciting job offer on her social media pages.
In 2014, the older sister of model Bella Hadid failed to be cast in the annual VS show.
“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,” Gigi told Style.com.
But a VS PINK photo shoot, a Model of the Year title, and countless Fashion Weeks later, the girlfriend of Joe Jonas proved she’s the It girl of the fashion world. And she can do anything, she’s already slammed online bullies over body-shaming remarks.
Rihanna, Selena Gomez and The Weeknd will all take the stage to perform at the 2015 VS Fashion Show airing on CBS on Dec. 8.
Jonas was among the first to congratulate his lady love on Twitter writing: “@GiGiHadid so happy for you.”
