LOOK: Kelsey Merritt, ecstatic to have met her “inspiration” Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana Lima
Model Kelsey Merritt is definitely on a high after having just met her lifelong peg, Adriana Lima, at the backstage of this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
A rare wefie of the two showed Adriana and Kelsey in their most gorgeous robes for the show. “Growing up watching the [Victoria’s Secret] fashion show, I wanted to be like [Adriana Lima]! 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! [sic],” wrote the Filipino-American beauty on her Instagram early today, November 9 (November 8 in US Time).
It was back in September when Kelsey made her shocking announcement that she was chosen to walk the coveted runway, making her the first Filipina to take part in the show. “WE DID IT PHILIPPINES! [sic] What an honor it is to be the first Filipino to walk in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2018! [sic] I can’t believe this!”
Meanwhile, today, November 9, marked Adriana’s last as an Angel after serving the lingerie brand for almost 20 years.
