It's one of the most prestigious modelling gigs around and one of the few brands rising star Gigi Hadid hadn't yet cracked - until now.

At just 20, she's fashion's reigning 'it girl' counting campaigns for Balmain and Guess and three Vogue covers to her name, but she's finally getting her Victoria's Secret wings.

The lingerie giant will host their annual fashion show next month in New York and posted a clip on Instagram highlighting Gigi's killer audition and the moment she's told she landed the job.

Hadid, who was a hot commodity for the 2014 show in London, said she botched her audition last year due to nerves.

The supermodel in the making tweeted her excitement last night, saying: "I'm so overwhelmed with joy, it won't stop bringing me to tears. Thank you all for your love & support. On cloud nine. #VSFashionShow2015."

"Couldn't keep back my tears!!!! Anyone that grew up with me knows that getting this show has been a dream of mine forever! THANK YOU @victoriassecret & @ed_razek! One of the happiest moments of my life. #vsfashionshow2015"

She joins the ranks of some of the world's most famous supermodels including Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell, among a few, who have walked the Victoria's Secret catwalk.

This year will see her appearing alongside Angels including Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Lily Aldridge and Candice Swanepoel, among others.
