Victoria Lee rehearses ahead of David Jones runway show

She’s the newly-announced David Jones ambassador who recently walked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show runway in Shanghai.

And Victoria Lee looked in her element while rehearsing for the the Australian retail giant’s Autumn-Winter Fashion Show on Wednesday. 

It comes after she spoke to The Daily Telegraph about her pre-runway nerves.

While she was watched by an audience of over 500 million people during the Victoria’s Secret show, the model said she is just as nervous about walking for David Jones.

‘I feel almost more nervous because it is so close to my heart and important to me,’ the 27-year-old said.

She continued: ‘To be recognised now not only as a model but as who I am, it makes me a lot more vulnerable.’

The glitz and the glam!

‘But I’m just so proud and I hope I do the best I can, because I’m thrilled to be in the position I am in,’ she added.

Victoria is set to take the place of Jesinta Franklin and is walking alongside long-term David Jones ambassador Jessica Gomes and Jordan Barrett.

While some have wondered if replacing Jesinta caused a stir backstage, the model herself was quick to shut the conversation down.

In an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald, Jesinta said: ‘I’ve done it enough times, it’s fine.’

And when asked about Victoria personally, she added: ‘I love her. Victoria and I used to bump into each other at castings in New York. 

‘I was thrilled when it was announced.’

Runway ready or not, here we come! 'But I'm just so proud and I hope I do the best I can, because I'm thrilled to be in the position I am in,’ Victoria said of being titled a David Jones ambassador
