Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, Louis Vuitton star Estelle posted a gushing post next to a Boomerang video of her and three other models.

"Can't believe it's happening... I'm incredibly happy to announce that I AM WALKING THE VICTORIA'S SECRET 2017 SHOW," she exclaimed. "I'm so thankful for everything that has happened in my life so far, every person I've met during these past four years, my family (mum, dad, williams, you're the best) and my friends who are always by my side no matter what."

Who will be walking in this year's Victoria's Secret show?

She also wrote that she's experienced a lot of ups and downs over the course of her career, but adds that's what makes the journey to the top so special.

Estelle Chen had dreamed about this opportunity since she was a teenager

And Estelle made sure she thanked her agency too, as well as the Victoria's Secret team.

"(Thanks) for giving me the opportunity I dreamed about since I was 13 can't wait to see you guys again you inspire girls to be the best version of themselves and you make our dreams become reality," she shared.

Details of the 2017 show are still being kept under wraps, though Vogue previously reported it's likely to be held in Shanghai.

Hailey Baldwin was spotted at the show casting earlier this week, though she's not yet been confirmed as part of the line-up.
