Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner reportedly set to walk in 2018 Victoria’s Secret show

DUBAI: Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid are set to walk in the upcoming Victoria’s Secret show in New York, footwear designer Brian Atwood let slip on Instagram this week.

The designer, who is creating the shoes for the show, uploaded two Instagram posts that indicated Hadid and Jenner would be part of the 2018 show.

In one post, he posted an image of Hadid in the 2016 show and captioned the image: “Less than 1 month away!!!!Let’s do this @gigihadid @victoriassecret. Can’t wait to show you what we have done for the shoe!!!! (sic).”

In the other upload, Atwood posted a photo of Kendall Jenner and captioned it: “Can’t wait to see this beauty @kendalljenner strutting in my shoes for the @victoriassecret fashion show… less than a month away!!!!”

Models from around the world took to social media last month to announce that they were chosen to walk in the 2018 Victoria’s Secret show — one of the most coveted gigs on the fashion calendar. Read on for what they had to say on their Instagram accounts.

Nora Attal has her day in the sun in Marrakesh

Nora Attal has her day in the sun in Marrakesh

DUBAI: British-Moroccan model Nora Attal posed up a storm in Marrakesh’s golden sunlight for a new campaign by fashion brand Zara.

The in-demand model shared snaps from the campaign, photographed by Christian Macdonald, on her Instagram account.

The collection of photographs show Attal modelling looks from Zara’s laid-back Spring/Summer 2019 collection against a backdrop of rippling sand dunes. Her featured ensembled include kaftans and long-length cardigans with hefty stripes in a clay-and-beige color palette.

Attal is no stranger to fronting campaigns — in January, the model was chosen as one of seven rising stars to feature in British fashion house Alexander McQueen’s latest campaign.

The Spring/Summer 2019 collection photoshoot was shot by British fashion and documentary photographer Jamie Hawkesworth and featured Attal wearing a number of cowboy-inspired looks.

The year has gotten off to a busy start for Attal, who was similarly in demand in 2018, when she took to the catwalk for Elie Saab, Loewe and Dior during Paris Fashion Week in September and starred in Italian fashion label Versace’s summer advert campaign.

In May, luxury e-retailer Farfetch launched in the Middle East with a little help from the young model.

She starred in a photoshoot wearing pieces from collections on sale on the platform. The colorful photographs were accompanied by a snappy, chatty interview with the young model.
Readers got the chance to gain insight into her earliest fashion memories and learn some off-the-cuff facts about the star.

“Recently I’ve been obsessed with noughties trends. Everyone was so cool and effortless back then. Now I go out in a full Juicy Couture tracksuit with no shame,” she told Farfetch at the time.

“If I wasn’t a model, I’d probably be at university, studying to get into something like criminal investigations, profiling or law,” she added.

Attal finished off 2018 by hitting the sand dunes in the UAE — however, this time it wasn’t part of a high-end photoshoot, but rather a day of fun.

The model enjoyed an afternoon of sandboarding in the emirate of Sharjah and even posted a snap on Instagram at the time.

“Apparently sandboarding is a thing,” she captioned the sunset shot.
