Even Models Get Rejected
On Tuesday night’s Victoria Secret Fashion Show, the famous lingerie label featured a new model to their lineup, Gigi Hadid. Hadid, 20, who has appeared in Sports Illustrated and is known as a television personality, hasn’t always been so lucky.
The beautiful young model has tried unsuccessfully to become a Victoria’s Secret model for the past three years, facing rejection with every attempt.
Hadid’s mom, star of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, couldn’t have been more proud of her daughter at the recent fashion show.
“I keep crying every time I see it…it was probably one of the highlights of a mother’s life,” she tearfully exclaimed. “She’s missed it twice, this was her third try, and she pulled it off…That’s a part of the game,” she continued.
If Hadid was feeling afraid before her big debut, she at least didn’t have to go it alone. Lucky for her, her best friend Kendall Jenner was also working that night in the same show!
“Kendall and I have both been dreaming about this or whole lives, so to be able to do it for the first time together is amazing,” Hadid stated.
You can catch the whole event when the Victoria Secret Fashion Show airs Dec 8th at 10pm.
