We all know that one of the most anticipated fashion shows in the industry is from the lingerie brand Victoria's Secret. Even if it's not as high fashion as the lineup at NYFW, PFW, and MFW, it made a name for itself through outrageous themes and costumes, and live pop music blazing. The spectacle has made the title of a VS Angel an aspiration for some in the modelling industry.
While there are still inclusivity issues when it comes to who walks the VS runway, there are some things about this colourful event that gives us good reason to celebrate. Meet Kelsey Merritt, the first Filipina to earn "Angel Wings" a.k.a. who got cast as one of the models who will walk in the brand's runway show this year.
The 21-year-old graduated just over a year ago from Ateneo De Manila University with a degree in Communications. Since then, she has moved to New York and has been busy with several international projects and have signed with multiple agencies. She has already participated in several ads for the lingerie brand this year but it's still different business when you find out that you're walking the runway.
Did this get you rooting for this stunner? We're sharing more reasons to love her below.
