Gigi Hadid Is Now a Victoria’s Secret Angel

In a bit of totally unsurprising news, Gigi Hadid is officially a Victoria’s Secret Angel.

The brand announced the news on Thursday with a sweet Instagram video showing the 20-year-old’s audition to land a spot on the world’s hottest runway and getting the news that she’d been cast.

In the clip, we see the model strutting in a black bra and matching undies, and when she’s done, a casting director asks: “What are you doing on November 9th and 10th?”

“I don’t know …” Gigi says, before dropping to a squat in shock when asked, “Why don’t you come join us?”

Victoria’s Secret captioned the clip: “We love surprises … and we just gave a BIG one to @GigiHadid at today’s #VSFashionShow castings. See you on the runway, Gigi.”

Interestingly, the model tried out for the runway show in 2014 but wasn’t nearly as famous and didn’t make the cut. It’s no secret Gigi’s had a pretty epic year, walking runways in New York City and Paris, snagging magazine covers and a Balmain campaign, and becoming a serious tabloid fixture, so clearly Victoria’s Secret wasn’t going let her get away.

Hadid also posted the news to Insta, writing: “@victoriassecret & @ed_razek! One of the happiest moments of my life. ❤️ #vsfashionshow2015.”
