2014 has been a good year for Gigi Hadid, and now for the cherry on top she has landed the modelling holy grail - a contract with Victoria’s Secret.

The 19-year-old All American beauty teased a behind the scenes look at her shoot with Victoria’s Secret ‘PINK’ range to her 1.2 million followers on Instagram.

The image shows the former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit rookie posing in a black and white breton sweater for photographer Elliston Lutz.

PINK is the brand’s diffusion line, aimed at college students and teenagers. Those who model for PINK are often snapped up and enlisted for the runway and main catalogue.

Yesterday, the young couple were spotted in Soho, New York, alongside Gigi’s close friend and fellow model Kendall Jenner doing a spot of Christmas shopping.

The high profile trio stepped out in conveniently colour-coded outfits of faded denim and black cover ups as they paid visits to the city’s Saint Laurent and Fendi stores.
