Bella Hadid was clearly born to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel, and this audition clip of her nailing her runway walk is all the proof you need!
Congratulations, Bella Hadid, 20! Ahead of one of fashion’s biggest shows, Victoria’s Secret announced Bella has officially made the cut to walk in the 2016 fashion show for the first time! Obviously, Bella is a pro on the runway, but after watching her audition tape, it was clear she was perfect for the job!
In the brief audition clip Victoria’s Secret shared on their official Instagram page on Oct. 25, Bella showed off her quirky and peppy side. “Today, I am casting for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016,” Bella said to the camera with a huge grin on her face. SO cute! And when the top model was asked about how she felt she did during the walking portion of the audition, Bella was just as bubbly with her response. “I have no idea because I kind of feel like I black out when I go in there,” she continued. “I’m just like in my underwear and this is fun. But I’m happy with it. I hope they’re happy.”
Well, it definitely looked like Bella was having fun! The clip flashed to the model’s runway walk where she strutted like a pro right to the front of the judge’s table, giving her best pose. She even blew a kiss to the judges before heading back up the catwalk. OMG, she definitely has the angel pizzazz!
Bella’s VS audition definitely contrasts with the star’s other fashion gigs. While she is no stranger to the runway, Bella has usually walked in shows with a darker theme such as the DKNY and Michael Kors shows during 2016 New York Fashion Week in Sept. But what better way to switch it up than walk in your first Victoria’s Secret show?
Bella also shared a shorter clip of her audition tape on Instagram, along with a huge thank you note for the opportunity. “There is no better feeling than being confirmed for the @victoriassecret fashion show,” Bella wrote. “What a dream come true… I feel so appreciative and excited! Thank you for this opportunity to walk next to some of the most inspiring and incredible women in the world! Thank YOU from the deepest part of my heart.” Aww, that’s so sweet!
Bella will be joining her big sis Gigi Hadid, 21, on the VS runway, as well as veterans Karli Kloss, 24, Alessandra Ambrosio, 35, Lily Aldridge, 30, and Adriana Lima, 35. There’s no word on whether Kendall Jenner, 20, will be rejoining the epic lineup, but we really hope she’ll be reuniting with her friends this season.
We’ll just have to wait and see what’s in store for this year’s show! The 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs on Dec.5, 2016, at 10 p.m. EST on CBS.
