After sitting out the Victoria’s Secret fashion show last year, fan favorites Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner are set to return to the runway.
Brian Atwood – the man responsible for the shoes the 2018 models will be wearing – let slip on social media that the two beautiful models will be part of the spectacular lingerie catwalk show which will be taking place in New York City this year.
Sharing a photo of Gigi in the 2017 show on his Instagram account, he wrote: “Less than 1 month away!!!! Let’s do this @gigihadid @victoriassecret Can’t wait to show you what we have done for the show!!!! #highheels #shoes #sexy #angels #victoriassecret #fashionshow #gigihadid #fashion #victoriassecretfashionshow #madeinitaly #luxe #brianatwood (sic)”
Uploading an image of Kendall walking for Victoria’s Secret too in another Instagram post, he wrote: “Can’t wait to see this beauty @kendalljenner strutting in my shoes for the @victoriassecret fashion show… less than a month away!!!! (sic)”
Fans were overjoyed at the news that the pair will be returning and flooded the designer with excited comments.
One user wrote on the picture of Gigi: “Omg I’m so excited to see!!! The most beautiful model of all time – so happy she’s back! (sic)”
Another commented on the picture of Kendall: ” Okay but my favorite model! literally excited I will actually watch just bc she’s in it. (sic)”
Kendall , 22, missed the event last year due to a contractual conflict, as the ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star was the face of La Perla lingerie and unable to model for any other lingerie brands.
Gigi also did not walk in the 2017 show in Shanghai, China, pulling out shortly before it was due to take place amidst a racism row after
Some have speculated it was decided she shouldn’t go after the 23-year-old model offended many people by squinting her eyes in an attempt to impersonate the Buddha in an Instagram video.
Other models confirmed to walk in the Victoria’s Secret Show include Angels Elsa Hosk, Josephine Skriver and Sara Sampaio, whilst Winnie Harlow will be making her debut for the brand.
