Bella Hadid has revealed what she's insecure about ahead of this year's Victoria's Secret fashion show - and it's not walking in her underwear.

The 20-year-old model will be taking to the runway for Victoria's Secret for the first time on November 30th, but there's one thing she's particularly nervous about.

It's not falling or having to walk in front on her ex-boyfriend, singer Abel Tesfaye (The Weeknd), who is performing at the show, but rather she is nervous about smiling enough.

“I am not a very good smiler on cue,” she told People. “I have to practice that a lot.”

“I have to close my best friend and roommate’s door and put a big mirror in front of it so she can’t get out of her room so that I have a part of the apartment to walk and practice,” she explained.

“It’s perfect for me, but she can’t really get out of her room.”

Bella has walked for some of the biggest names in fashion, including Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Tommy Hilfiger and has even appeared on the cover of Vogue, but says that her previous work is very different to what she'll have to do for the lingerie giant in Paris.

“On the runway for high fashion you just don’t really think," she said.

“You just walk and it’s an everyday thing. You do so many shows a day that it’s kind of you’re showing off the clothes.”

“This, it’s about personality," she said of the Victoria's Secret show, which is one of the most anticipated events in the fashion industry.

 “It’s about the lingerie, but you also have to keep a smile on your face. You have to interact. It’s a different experience than I am really used to. I think that’s why everybody gets so nervous for this show because it’s so different but it’s such an amazing experience and a learning experience.”

However, Bella, who will be walking alongside sister Gigi, is ever the professional and won't let her nerves stop her.

“Sure, I wish I could smile bigger but it’s everything you can work on."

 “I just hope when I am out there I am not too nervous about being in my lingerie. But I am excited to just walk and show off my outfits because they’re so cute.”

“So, yes, I am really nervous but I am going to figure it out,” she added.
