Bella hadid has been confirmed for the Victoria’s Secret fashion show

When the ecstatic Instagram posts started rolling in earlier this week from models celebrating the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show casting announcements, a couple models were notably absent from the social media festivities. Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid were not among the women spotted entering and leaving the Manhattan offices where castings were held, leading many to assume they were not on this year’s lineup. But, as she announced in an Instagram post Saturday night, Bella Hadid, at least, is officially walking in the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

The first hint appeared on her Instagram stories the previous day—Hadid, swathed in one of the lingerie brand’s trademark hot pink silk robes, mugged for the camera in a short video. Then, on Saturday, she arrived at the Victoria’s Secret casting offices for a fitting—after all the other models already had their go—wearing light-washed jeans, a white bustier and white button down, and white stilettos. Finally, that same evening, she posted another image of herself wearing a simple black bra with a slate-grey silk robe falling from her shoulders. In the caption, she announced the news in the same jubilant manner as her peers like Devon Windsor, Grace Elizabeth, Maria Borges, and others: “I feel so crazy humbled to get the opportunity to be a part of this show again…Walking into the offices this year I felt so happy, healthy, and honored,” she wrote. “I can’t wait for another incredible experience!!! Congrats to all of the beautiful ladies I will be walking beside.” The whole thing, apparently, took less than a day—apparently a foregone conclusion for the woman who had made the biggest news of the previous year’s show.

Last year, Hadid made her Victoria’s Secret debut, walking the same runway as her elder sister—and her ex-boyfriend, The Weeknd, who performed during the show. It was, in essence, the ultimate breakup fantasy: Hadid powered down the runway in luxurious lingerie while her ex boyfriend looked on. In one look, she wore a flinty grey corset and lace bra, a silk chiffon robe billowing behind her; in a second, she wore a blue, crystal-embellished long-sleeved top and underwear with feather details. All this is to say, Hadid’s second outing on the Victoria’s Secret runway—reportedly in Shanghai this year, in lieu of last year’s Paris—has a lot to live up to.

It’s good to know that, while Hadid is re-devoting herself to equestrianism and putting in substantial hours as the new face of Bulgari, she’s still making time for one of the glitziest fashion events of the year. And Hadid’s tardiness serves to show there’s still time for Gigi and Kendall to join in on the occasion, too.

Bella Hadid Lands Her First Fendi Campaign

If you were proud of yourself for hitting the gym yesterday, Bella Hadid is here to one-up your New Year’s resolution. The model rang in 2017 by landing her first Fendi campaign, shot by none other than Karl Lagerfeld, of course.

The younger Hadid sister debuted the new ad on Instagram, writing, “what a dream come true to start off the new year!”

Featuring a muted color palette and romantic florals, the Spring 2017 ad is quite a contrast from Fendi’s previous campaign starring Kendall Jenner in bold colors and colorful furs.

After having an incredible year as one of 2016’s most in-demand models and closing Fendi’s 90th anniversary couture show last July, Hadid landing her first campaign for the fashion house hardly comes as a surprise. Looks like she has no signs of slowing down in 2017.
