Filipino-American Kelsey Merritt has finally walked the Victoria's Secret runway on Thursday (US time). The fashion show was shot in New York and will air on ABC this coming December.
Kelsey is the first Filipino model to make it to the renowned fashion show. Kelsey has been training hard for the show for the past couple of months.
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
Filipino netizens sent their congratulatory messages for Kelsey ahead of her stint, and that includes her good friends in showbiz. Heart Evangelista wrote, "God bless you pretty girl." Bea Alonzo posted, "Go Kelsey!"
It was in September when Kelsey announced that she bagged the stint as a model for the fashion show this year.
"We did it Philippines! What an honor it is to be the first Filipino to walk in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2018! Ahhhhhh I can’t believe this," she wrote on her Instagram last September.
