It is a ceremonious day, dear readers. After all, dreams do come true, especially for rich people. After being snubbed in the castings for last year's show, real daughter of a real housewife and/or supermodel, Gigi Hadid, finally got cast in the high profile fashion show for Victoria's Secret.

The show, if you aren't familiar, is like Chanel's Métiers d'art with much higher accessibility. It's a gratuitous occasion outside of the normal perimeters of fashion weeks with high profile supermodels showing off high profile skin with high profile musicians. The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is not only important to models, but it's important to pop culture as it cemented the highly hashtagged friendship between Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss, who coincidentally kinda look the same.

This year's show is due to take place on Tuesday, November 10th, with singers Rihanna, Selena Gomez, and Gigi's sister's boyfriend, The Weeknd, all due to perform. This will also mark the first year Gigi has walked in the Victoria's Secret show.
