The ultimate #TBT.
As models started revealing that they were cast in this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, Gigi Hadid kept quiet, leaving some fans wondering whether the It girl would appear on the VS catwalk at all. But it seems the 22-year-old wasn't rejected from the lineup; she was just keeping her casting a secret.
The model was seen entering Victoria's Secret's NYC offices on Monday for her fitting. (VS models have been going in for fittings since the weekend, and will continue to until Wednesday week.)
Bella Hadid has finally confirmed that she will walk the Victoria's Secret runway once more. The model shared the news via Instagram, after being spotted at the lingerie giant's headquarters.

It may still be a few months away, but auditions for the 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show are already well underway. Although the show is rumored to be taking place in Shanghai this year, model castings are currently being held in New York this week. From belly-baring crop tops to actual bras and high-waisted denim, see what models are wearing to their big auditions. Spoiler alert: they're just as good at street style as they are at lingerie.
For the first time, Victoria's Secret is displaying some very recognizable pieces from its fashion show runways in what's officially called the Victoria's Secret Museum, located in their flagship store on Fifth Avenue in NYC.
The exhibit includes the bondage-light getup Gigi Hadid wore down the runway and the flowy gray number Bella Hadid wore while strutting past The Weeknd on stage.
Other memorable ensembles include the glittery catsuits that Stella Maxwell wore in 2016 and Candice Swanepoel wore in 2015.
When people say "Victoria's Secret Hair," they typically mean voluminous, sexpot waves. But when Maria Borges walked in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show last year with her natural hair, everyone took notice—and gave new (much needed) meaning to the phrase. Thankfully this year, we saw not only Borges rocking her natural hair again, but also several models of color as well.
Herieth Paul worked the stage with a short curly fro:
Jourdana Phillips showed off her blonde natural coils:
Alanna Arrington strutted the stage, letting her loose curls bounce with every walking motion:
And, obviously, Maria Borges keeping it 💯:
Sweats are a life necessity, and the rule applies double when you're going to spend the following day wearing nothing but strappy lingerie and sky-high stilettos.
So it comes as no surprise that when it came time to suit up for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show rehearsal, Gigi Hadid chose to rock a sweatshirt with her first pair of Angel wings.
I can't look at this photo or think about all my angelic friends putting their wings on for the first time without getting choked up with tears of pride. My excitement is too real! Catch us out of our rehearsal clothes TOMORROW night on CBS! @victoriassecret #vsfs2016
