Sigh, we can dare to dream!
Gigi had two looks last night during her Victoria's Secret runway premiere. For the first, Gigi strutted her stuff on stage during the butterfly line as singer Ellie Goulding crooned in the background. The teal and black bra and panties set showed off Gigi's curves while her first pair of wings, a matching teal take on classic butterfly wings, made her ready to take flight. And she totes did, as she glided down the runway flirting with the camera and easily sticking out in our minds as one of the best models at the show.
For look number two, Gigi rocked a sports bra for Victoria's Secret's pink line, showing up to the runway clad in a fireman's uniform. Reflective of Pink's ultra-youthful and fun-spirited vibe, Gigi carried one of VS's famous dogs with her and tooched the booch as past angel Tyra Banks would say. No wings came out with this look, but many of the models working what we can only describe as various sexy Halloween costumes came without their wings as well.
But Gigi's crowning moment that turned our hearts to mush happened when VS spotlighted her journey to becoming an angel. During the clip, we saw Gigi's famous casting video where she strutted her stuff in front of VS' finest and gained a coveted spot in the show.
We've already seen the clip (maybe a million and a half times) of Gigi being asked to join the show, only to fall the floor screaming, "Really?" but this time, we were able to hear Gigi's take on being a new angel. While being interviewed, Gigi reiterated how being in the VS Fashion Show has always been her biggest dream, saying that if you asked anyone she went to high school with they would tell you that's all she ever wanted from her career.
Gigi also made us fall harder for her as we got to see her reaction to her first rehearsal for the show. Joking that she thought it would be awkward strutting in lingerie around her sister Bella's boyfriend, the Weeknd, Gigi becomes weak at the knees when she sees all the angel wings for the first time. Walking across the runway, Gigi gives her fellow angel a huge hug and discusses how she is truly humbled to be living such an awe-inspiring experience.
Well Gigi, you did VS proud last night and we can only hope that you'll be rocking lingerie and a pair of wings again next year.
