Gigi Hadid Is Walking the Victoria’s Secret Runway Again
Gigi Hadid is having a year. She’s the new face of Tommy Hilfiger, she was on every major runway during Paris Fashion Week and now, she’s finally confirming what we’ve all been wondering about for months. Gigi will be walking the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show again this year.
In her Instagram post, the model shared a video from last year’s show, with the caption, “There is no feeling in the world like walking down this runway. I’m elated to say I’ll be returning to the @VictoriasSecret Fashion Show this year. Thank you @ed_razek for putting on the show that has been one of my greatest motivators since I was a teenage fan of the Angels, and for making this dream come true for me again. It will forever be an honor. Can’t wait to join the surreally beautiful and inspiring women that are the #vsfs2016 lineup. See you in paris ❤️❤️😇👠‼️”
Besides the fact that VS last year helped elevate Gigi to supermodel status, walking in the show this year has her strutting with sister Bella (who is walking in the show for the first time this year), making the Hadid sisters the first siblings to ever rock the VS runway together. The only way this show could get better is if Gigi’s BFF Kendall joined the two sisters for the show.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
