One of the biggest and most-watched events in the fashion industry takes place tomorrow night when the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs on CBS 2 at 10PM on December 8. Along with the finely crafted lingerie and beautiful models walking the runway, the night will be soundtracked with live performances from Ellie Goulding, Selena Gomez, and The Weekend.
Talking more about the big night with Scott Shannon in the Morning is one of Victoria’s Secret Angels and super model, Taylor Hill.
“I was actually really shocked because I’m so young,” says Hill, noting that it typically takes a model more time and work with Victoria’s Secret to earn such a prestigious title. Hill’s quick rise among the ranks at VS and the success she’s achieved at a young age should come as no surprise considering the unusual circumstances that began her career; Taylor Hill was discovered in a barn.
“We would go to this dude ranch and you could stay there over the weekend, take care of a horse and get used to it,” says Hill, who would ride horses with her sisters at a ranch not far from her childhood home in Colorado that was also very popular for photoshoots. A mother agent (scout that discovers talent), who was also a photographer, soon approached her. “It was just kind of a fate thing. He said, ‘Hey, you should be a model. You should live in New York and do this.’ It was very cool… very random.”
Proof that Hill’s career is really on the rise: she’s been to Taylor Swift‘s house.
“She invited me to her birthday party last year. She’s such a sweetheart. I met her for the first time at the show last year and she’s a true angel.”
