Filipina-American model Kelsey Meritt proudly announced on social media that she was chosen to walk the runway of the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. 

Just a few months after she appeared as a sportswear model for Victoria's Secret, Kelsey Merritt finally announced that her dream to become an international supermodel one of the biggest women's brand in the world is now a reality. 

"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 in her Instagram post. 

It was only earlier this week when her callback to be a VS model was announced online. 

 

Miss Universe 2012 Janine Tugonon also tried out her luck to become a Victoria's Secret model but failed to make the cut. However, she had the opportunity to become one of the endorsers of one of Victoria's Secret affiliated brands.
