Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid will walk in the show for the second time

A famous shoe designer let it slip on social media this week that supermodels Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid are confirmed for the 2018 Victoria Secret Fashion Show.

Brian Atwood is responsible for designing the shoes for the models who grace the Victoria Secret runway, and this week he announced on Instagram that he “could not wait” to work with both the models in the show.

“Can’t wait to see this beauty Kendall Jenner strutting in my shoes for the Victoria Secret Fashion Show… less than a month away!” he said. In a seperate post, he confirmed Gigi’s attendance, writing “Less than 1 month away! Let’s do this Gigi Hadid and Victoria Secret. Can’t wait to show you what we have done for the show!”

It will be the first time the two models have walked in the show since their debut in 2016. Last year Kendall had prior work commitments which meant she could not take part in the show, while Gigi did not take part in the show in China following a racist social media post.

Saudi Arabian-Australian model Shanina Shaik is also due to walk in the show this Winter. The 27-year-old made the announcement via her Instagram account last month, saying that she is “overjoyed and so beyond grateful” to be appearing in this year’s show, concluding that this year’s show would be “unforgettable”.
