'If it's meant to be, it'll happen at another time. It wasn't meant to happen today.'" Those were the words that Yolanda shared with her daughter, supermodel Gigi Hadid, when she initially failed in auditioning for Victoria's Secret last year 2014 and didn't land the job! Speaking to Vogue Australia at the beginning of 2015.
Well, a year later, Yolanda proved to be right! As Gigi was finally offered a spot in Victoria's Secret end-of-year Fashion Show this coming November 9th and 10th.. A dream come true for Gigi, she is yet to shine as an Angel on the runway!
Officials at the lingerie giant posted a video of the moment Gigi discovered she would be a Victoria's Secret Angel on Instagram on Thursday 29th of October 2015. The 20-year-old beauty is seen strutting her stuff in front of bosses, before being asked what she's doing on November 9 and 10 2015 by Ed Razek, senior creative of Victoria's Secret and chief marketing officer of its parent company. When invited to join the brand Gigi falls to the floor crying, quizzing bosses: "Really?" Her reaction was described as being 'cute', as the gorgeous model couldn't help but fall into tears!
The accompanying caption read: "We love surprises so here's a BIG one for @GiGiHadid at the #VSFashionShow castings! See you on the runway, Gigi."
The blonde star took to her personal account to share her joy at landing such an iconic job, writing:
The Victoria Secret Fashion Show, taking place in New York, will air in America on December 8 2015, and marks the brand's 20th anniversary.
