LOOK: Kelsey Merritt models for Victoria’s Secret sportswear
It’s a dream come true for Fil-Am model Kelsey Merritt as she posed for Victoria’s Secret sportswear line, Victoria Sport.
Last May 12, the New York-based model revealed that a tweet she wrote last year turned into a self-fulfilling prophecy. One of her career goals had been to model for Victoria’s Secret—and the opportunity arrived less than a year later.
A day before the shoot, she shared her preparations: “Been working out like crazy, eating very healthy, and mentally preparing myself that it’s actually happening.”
On May 15, Merritt was finally on set and gave a peak at the sportswear as she posed confidently in a mint-blue sports bra, showing off her hard-earned abs.
And after the day’s work, she was able to treat herself to oysters and some piping-hot champorado (Philippine chocolate rice porridge). “Because now I deserve it,” she tweeted.
Netizens have thrown their support for her dream, including actress Liza Soberano.
“Can’t wait for the day when I can finally call you Angel Kelsey,” she encouraged the model.

Meanwhile, Merritt couldn’t help but feel starstruck and called Soberano her “ultimate girl crush.”
She also expressed her gratitude to fans: “I’m crying you guys are so supportive. Love you all so much.” /ra
