Playing Victoria's Secret Announces Full Lineup for Fashion Show! See How Gigi Hadid & the Other Lovely Ladies Were Cast

Victoria's Secret's 20th annual show is just days away, and now we have the full list of the models who will be strutting their stuff on the runway and what it took for them to get cast.

"Every model in the world wants to be in this show, so it's going to be hard," executive producer Monica Mitro said prior to the announcement of the final selections. "It's going to be a very difficult couple of days."

Casting is one of the last components to get finalized for the iconic fashion show, and cameras rolled as producers began the painstaking process just 10 days before the big day.

"I had probably well over four or five hundred models submit to me for consideration," casting director John Pfeiffer said. "I saw close to 300 in the first two days of casting, which I do on my own with my team."

John explained that after the initial round, the number is whittled down and then there's two days of callbacks with a "maximum of 100 girls."

Some of the hopefuls are auditioning for the first time, while others are trying again after being passed over in years prior, but all of them are worried sick about making the roster.

"You just kind of have to relax," model Leomie Anderson said. "They're all lovely people. They're all smiling and you kind of just have to shake off the nerves and have fun with it basically."

Of course, the idea of being able to relax while facing what could be your only shot at accomplishing a lifelong dream is easier said than done, and not every model was successful.

"There were several that were fighting back tears or literally crying here today, because there's such a buildup and they've been working for it and wanting it so badly," Mitro recalled.

For those lucky enough to make the final cut, their lives can be forever changed.

"The minute a model starts working with Victoria's Secret, you can kind of hear the champagne popping in the offices across model world, because once the phone rang and they ask for her, the career just kind of explodes," publicist Fred Howard explained.

One of those models isn't even old enough to drink the champagne being poured in her honor. At just 20 years old, Kendall Jenner made the team this year, and Caitlyn Jenner will be in attendance to show support for her daughter.
