The annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show is scheduled for this Wednesday, and there’s some exciting casting news to report–not one but three pretty major models have been booked to walk the blockbuster show for the very first time. Goofy pals (and fellow Brit girls) Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn will be hitting the pink runway alongside all-American gal, Hilary Rhoda.
All three took to Twitter over the last few days and casually dropped mention of the show. Model-of-the-moment Cara Delevingne tweeted: “So excited for the #VSFashionShow ! Had my fitting yesterday and am so happy about my outfit. Be prepared, be very prepared.”
Jourdan Dunn later tweeted at Delevingne: “Me and @Caradelevingne are on our way to NY!!!! Who’s ready? #LDNTAKEOVER #VSFashionShow.”
To which Delevingne responded: “I am not sure @VictoriasSecret @VSPINK are ready for us @missjourdandunn ! BRIT TAKEOVER !”
Oh trust us ladies, we are ready–and we can’t wait to see you on the runway. If Delevingne’s tweet is anything to go by, it looks like the 19-year-old will likely be walking in the more youthful VS Pink grouping.
Hilary Rhoda, who seems to be working more lately (see: her Miu Miu ads), tweeted a picture of herself working out (and looking lean and mean, we must say) with the caption: “#VSFashionShow training… You get out what you put in! @ Gotham Gym”
It’s a huge coup for all three models, who while being super successful have yet to make it to supermodel status. As we all know, booking the Victoria’s Secret fashion show is a sure sign a model is on her way to mega fame (and a mega paycheck).
Victoria’s Secret vets Doutzen Kroes, Adriana Lima, and Alessandra Ambrosio–who’s wearing the fantasy bra this year–will all walk, as will last year’s buzzy VS debut model, Karlie Kloss. She tweeted: “Just finished my #VSFashionShow fitting! Can’t wait for the show, there are so many amazing looks this year!” On the other hand, the usually Twitter-happy Chanel Iman, who walked for VS Pink last year, has yet to mention if she’ll be walking this year.
We’ve reached out to Victoria’s Secret to confirm this casting, and we’ll update when we hear back.
