Gigi Hadid Got Rejected Twice, Finally Makes Victoria’s Secret Debut in Brian Atwood Custom-Made Heels

They say hard work and persistence pays off, and Gigi Hadid couldn’t have been a better example of this.

After auditioning to become a Victoria’s Secret Angel for two years, the 20-year-old proved that dreams really do come true – that is, after you’ve put in the hours at the gym (side note: check out her Instagram for her insane workout videos).

Gigi finally made her debut walk as a VS Angel at the recent Victoria’s Secret Show in New York.

Gigi’s casting video even went viral, showing the young model breaking into tears as Victoria’s Secret Senior Creative Ed Razek gave her the thumbs up to be a part of the show.

The 20-year-old wore custom-made Brian Atwood heels with her butterfly and firewoman-themed VS costumes.
