Best friends Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner shared a special milestone in their young modelling careers on Tuesday (Nov. 10) when both their dreams came true as they made their debut at the iconic Victoria’s Secret fashion show.
While Gigi wowed in a butterfly-inspired look, pal Kendall made her mark in a multicoloured lingerie set, complete with a silk blue patterned train.
The friends were delighted to have experienced their first Victoria’s Secret show together. Gigi shared a shot of the pair on Instagram, writing: "No one I would have rather shared my VS v-card with ;) This show is genuinely a dream come true. Can’t thank you enough @victoriassecret @ed_razek #vsfashionshow2015.”
Gigi’s mother, Yolanda Foster, was also extremely excited about her daughter’s debut in the show. Speaking to HELLO! on the pink carpet ahead of the presentation, Yolanda told HELLO! that she “started crying” when she found out about Gigi’s new gig.
“She called me the minute she walked out from the car and it was probably one of the highlights of a mother’s life,” she said. “I’ve watched the video a hundred times and I keep crying every time I see it because her reaction was just so sweet!”
Yolanda added that she had brought a tissue with her because she was “probably going to cry” when she saw Gigi walk.
The former model also pointed out that Gigi worked very hard to realize this dream. “My advice at this point was just to be yourself and enjoy the moment because this moment will never return and she’s worked really hard,” she said.
“I mean, this didn’t just fall into her lap. She’s missed it twice. This was her third try and she pulled it off and got a spot that millions of beautiful, beautiful women deserve as much as she does but that’s a part of the game.”
