It’s the announcement we’ve all been waiting for.

Two weeks ago we reported that Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner were both set to walk in the Victoria Secret Fashion Show later this week. Although 45 models had been announced, one name was noticeably absent from the list – that of Gigi’s younger sister, Bella Hadid.

This weekend however, Victoria Secret made the exciting announcement that she will be joining the pair in the show. The fashion brand made the announcement via Instagram, posting: “Mark your calendars!  The #VSFashionShow will air Sunday, Dec. 2 at 10/9c on @abcnetwork. See the Angels in action (and yes… @kendalljenner, @gigihadid & @bellahadid, too!).

In an apparent reference to the notorious Victoria Secret diet, which models follow in the run up to the show, she said that she was “feeling happier and healthier than ever.” She also used the announcement to comment on body diversity, she continued: “All body types are different and react differently to a great workout routine and a healthy diet.”

The Victoria Secret Fashion Show will take place in New York City on November 8, but will broadcast nearly a month later on December 2. There will be a star-studded line up of musicians performing at the show too, including Shawn Mendes, Rita Ora and The Chainsmokers.

We can’t wait to see the show!
