Earlier this week, we got our first glimpse at the new class of Victoria’s Secret models confirmed to walk the runway for 2017’s big end-of-year event in Shanghai. And while there were plenty of familiar faces in the lineup, including Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Irina Sharipova, there were also several *very* noticeable absentees.
Namely, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Bella Hadid, all of whom walked the runway last year (albeit not without a bit of controversy: Fans were up in arms to see the girls donning wings, which are typically reserved for seasoned show vets).
Now, at least one of the three ladies has officially confirmed her return, with Bella Hadid taking to Instagram to thank the company for the opportunity.
“I feel so crazy humbled to get the opportunity to be 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. I can’t wait!”
While there’s still no official word as to whether or not Gigi or Kendall Jenner will reprise their wings for this year’s show, there’s clearly no hard feelings either way on Gigi’s part: The 22-year-old just posted a shot of her little sis doing her thing along with the very enthusiastic caption, “LOOOOVVVVEEEEEEEEE @bellahadid !!!!
Are you happy to see Bella return for round two? Share with us @BritandCo.
