Model Zuri Tibby Named Face of Victoria’s Secret Pink1

American model Zuri Tibby just scored a major contract. Victoria’s Secret announced that Tibby is the newest PINK model, joining Rachel Hilbert as a face of the college-geared brand. Previous VS Pink superstars Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, and Elsa Hosk have since earned their wings as VS Angels.

The 20 year old (she turns 21 on Sept. 1) West Palm Beach-native will appear in Victoria’s Secret Pink campaigns and at future events for the brand.

It’s an honor — especially to be following in the footsteps of such amazing women,” Tibby says to Yahoo Style. “I’ve always looked up to them. They’re beautiful women who do great things. To be in that same category feels amazing.” “I’m still in shock and in awe. I don’t think that feeling will ever go away,” she says. “It means a lot to me. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do. I’m representing a brand that’s really cool.”

Yahoo Styles interviewed the 5-foot-10 beauty, who was discovered while shopping at a mall in Florida. She has since co-starred in a campaign for Rihanna’s Stance line, and appeared in Teen Vogue, Interview, and Cosmopolitan, international editions of Vogue, and has walked for Thom Browne, Karen Walker, Tracy Reese, and Ryan Roche.

Zuri Tibby is repped by IMG (New York), IMG Paris (Paris), Why Not Model Management (Milan), Storm Management (London) and Iconic Management (Berlin). Below are some excerpts from Tibby‘s interview with Yahoo Style:

Yahoo Style: Congratulations on being the new face of VS Pink. How did you learn the news?

Zuri Tibby: I learned the news through my agent. He called me in. I had no idea about it. He told me very casually. I didn’t know if it was a joke or what. It was so surreal because I’ve been wanting it for such a long time. As soon as I found out, I FaceTimed my mom. That was the first thing I did. She freaked out. She was screaming. She was at work. We were all so happy. It’s one of my favorite memories to date.

Does this mean you’ll be walking in the Victoria’s Secret show in November? Are you ready to wear wings?

That’s always been a really big dream of mine. But we’ll see. Stay tuned. As soon as I find out, you’ll find out too.

How did you become a model?

I was discovered when I was really young. I was 15. I was walking around the mall after work and [someone from my now] agency came up to me. They were kinda following me around a little bit. I was a little scared and shy when they came up to me and gave me their card. I’d never been approached and asked to model before, so it was a shock. They gave me their card, and we set up a meeting. Everything happened from there.

What was your first major modeling job?

My first job was for Teen Vogue, and I was super-nervous. My mom actually came with me to set and to New York. It was a good experience. I’d never experienced anything like that before — the whole production and hair and makeup. I loved it from that first shoot.
