Filipino-American model Kelsey Merritt was an alluring standout during her debut on the runway of Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

Merritt made history by becoming the first-ever Filipina to walk on the said show last November 9, but the televised version of the show was aired on December 2 on the US television channel ABS.

The said fashion show was held at Pier 94 in New York City and the Pampanga-based model walked during the PINK segment of the show, which is Victoria’s Secret line for young women.

Merritt was the fourth model to walk down the runway during the said segment as pop singer Bebe Rexha was belting her hit song “I’m A Mess”.

Donning a silver sportswear-inspired outfit with a light blue brassiere, Merritt strutted down the runway while smiling from ear to ear, blowing kisses to the audience members, and singing along to Bebe Rexha’s song.

After the show aired, Merritt expressed her excitement and gratitude through a series of Instagram posts.
