Gigi Hadid is one the most popular supermodels of the moment so when she was chosen to walk in the 2015 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, it seemed like a no-brainer. The starlet's mom, Yolanda Foster, revealed that Gigi actually tried to book the show two other times and didn't get it, which is part of the reason why the star had such an emotional response when she was selected this time around.
"She has worked really hard. This didn't just fall into her lap," Gigi's mom said. "She's missed it twice, this was her third try, and she pulled it off and got a spot that millions and millions of beautiful women deserve as much as she does. That's a part of the game though."
Gigi really was over the moon to have been one of the lucky models who had the chance to strut her stuff on this coveted catwalk. She's proud of this accomplishment — as she should be — and she too spoke about how she knows she was meant to be there this year.
"[I] started crying, and cried all day every time someone called me to say congratulations," Gigi spilled. "I didn’t get the show last year, but everything happens for a reason and the timing feels really right. It's something I've dreamed about my whole life."
We have a feeling this won't be the last time we see her take part in this iconic show!
