Get acquainted with the Rookie Class of 2016.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, many models' lifelong dreams came true as they were given the news that they'd been cast in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show for the first time. It's an undeniable milestone: Walking the same runway that helped to launch the careers of Adriana Lima, Heidi Klum, Candice Swanepoel, Tyra Banks and more can truly fast-track a girl to supermodel (or at least Instagirl) status.

For the 2016 edition of the show, taking place in Paris, the group of rookies includes a diverse mix of high fashion favorites — Dilone, Herrieth Paul, Alanna Arrington — and social media cool girls, like Camille Rowe and Bella Hadid, who will walk alongside her sister, Gigi, who took part in the show for the first time last year. Aw, their mom must be so proud!

Read on to acquaint yourself with the Victoria's Secret rookies of the year, and we'll continue to update as more surprise announcements and confirmations come through.
