Palvin wrote the following Thursday on Instagram when announcing the big news:

OFFICIALLY A @victoriassecret ANGEL ! I don’t know where to begin but I’ll try : I never thought it would happen and it has exceeded all my expectations. I’m very excited to announce that I’m officially a @victoriassecret ANGEL ! Thank you for believing in me. There were times where I let my own thoughts hold me back and it was a hard climb away from those but my family , my team, Ed, and everyone at VS they were always there to support me and uplift me. I am proud to represent Hungary, and most importantly, all of you in this new chapter of my life! Thank you all so much again

This is so cool, and such great news. There are some times when you just know you’re bound to have a great day. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)
