The Kendall Jenner Victoria’s Secret model rumors are true–and the 20-year-old couldn’t be happier to confirm them. Today, the world’s most famous lingerie company inked a new runway model deal with one of the world’s most famous faces, and announced the first in what both sides hope will be a series of high-profile appearances.
In fact, Kendall received the news on her birthday, and celebrated it with model BFF Gigi Hadid. Both will walk in the show–though not, contrary to earlier reports in the $2 million Fireworks Fantasy Bra; that jewel-studded support garment will be paraded by Lily Aldridge–when the show goes down in New York City on November 10th. As is now standard practice, the show will be filmed for our televisual entertainment, and will air on CBS on Tuesday, December 8th.
An elated Kendall shared (and further celebrated) the news with the most recent update to her Instagram feed…
