It's been quite the meteoric rise for 20-year-old supermodel-in-the-making Bella Hadid over the past few years. Since her V cover with sister Gigi last year, she's walked in nearly every show, worked with just about all of the major photographers in the industry, and landed a beauty ambassadorship with Dior (in case you missed it, she and V hosted a dinner for the brand last night). Today, she adds a new milestone to her career: becoming a Victoria's Secret Model.

After Bella was photographed leaving the VS headquarters in New York City earlier this week, the announcement came from the younger Hadid's makeup artist, Vincent Oquendo, who congratulated her on social media with a picture of Bella looking VS-ready in nothing but her lingerie.

Last year, it was Gigi's turn to fulfill her childhood dream of walking in the coveted show for the first time. If the elder Hadid picks up her wings again for this year's runway spectacle alongside Bella, it will mark the first time two sisters have walked in the same Victoria's Secret show, which will air on December 5.
