I had a break down before i walked into the most nerve wrecking casting of my life. I asked my driver to go around the block twice before i could walk into the @VictoriasSecret offices so i could re coup, and remember (while my trainer @bodybymato reminded me on the phone through sobs – thank you lol) how hard I’ve been working! I went in and made new friends and saw old friends and it already felt like home! We patiently waited while @ed_razek @johndavidpfeiffer @monica.mitro @10magazine carefully took time to get to know each girl. When it was finally my time, within my nervous storm of anticipation i changed into a black Victoria Secret set and stepped out!!!! I spoke to them about Jamaica, @nick_knight , my abs, and how i was beyond honoured to be given the opportunity to try out.. then I walked for my life!!!! I can’t believe this!! Thank you for giving me all the energy and kindness in that room! Thank you for allowing me to walk for VICTORIA’S SECRET! Thank you to my agencies @firstaccessent @womenmanagementnyc @women_paris @thesquadmanagement my pr @remibrb my agent @mannyuk and mama bears #sarahstennett & @thelilmisse for having my back supporting and believing in me!

“Eu tive uma crise antes de entrar no casting mais estressante da minha vida. Eu pedi para o motorista dar a volta no quarteirão duas vezes antes de entrar nos escritórios da Victoria’s Secret”, escreveu a top.

Harlow foi descoberta na 21ª temporada do reality show “America’s Next Top Model”, que foi ao ar em 2014, e desde então tem feito muito sucesso no universo fashionista.

Marcado para novembro, o próximo desfile da marca já rendeu um contrato estipulado em US$ 1,5 milhão (R$ 6,1 milhões) anuais pelo novo contrato com a VS.
