Congratulations to Gigi Hadid! The 20-year-old supermodel has been chosen to walk the runway for Victoria's Secret fashion show in December. In a clip released by the lingerie brand, we got to see Gigi audition for the role as chief marketing officer Ed Razek and the rest of the team observed.

"What are you doing on November 9 and 10?" he asked in the clip. An anxious and excited Gigi squeaked "I don't know!" seconds before getting asked to join the show.

She shared the happy moment on her Instagram with the caption "Couldn't keep back my tears!!!! Anyone that grew up with me knows that getting this show has been a dream of mine forever! THANK YOU @victoriassecret & @ed_razek! One of the happiest moments of my life. ❤ #vsfashionshow2015". She was previously rejected from the show last year.

With Rihanna, Selena Gomez and The Weeknd headlining the show on 8 December, we can't wait to see what else is in store. And by the looks from Candice Swanepoel's throwback photos, we can see tell it's going to be a show to remember.
