Kelsey Merritt, the first Filipina model to become a Victoria’s Secret Angel, teased her walk in an Instagram post between breaks. “About to do our second show!” she wrote. “The energy here is crazy!”
Kelsey even gave a sneak peek at her runway walk.
Kelsey is the first Filipino model to book the highly coveted show. It’s a dream come true for her, but it’s all still very surreal. A selfie with Adriana Lima is already #goals for some. Kelsey is in disbelief that she will be sharing the runway with the fashion icon.
“Growing up watching the @victoriassecret fashion show, I wanted to be like @adrianalima! She is such an inspiration. I can’t believe I get to say I’ve walked the show with her and all the beautiful VS models!!!!” Merritt wrote.
Merritt, who studied in the Philippines before moving to New York, shot with Victoria’s Secret sportswear line before moving on to become a full-fledged Angel.

This song from first segment of the fashion show always brings me to tears… So powerful. “When the sharpest words wanna cut me down I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out I am brave, I am bruised I am who I'm meant to be, this is me” #VSFashionShow @victoriassecret ❤️❤️❤️ 📸 @timur
