Romee Strijd felt ''even more nervous'' walking in the 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show than previous events because her boyfriend was in the audience watching.
The 22-year-old model - who became an Angel in 2015 - felt a heightened amount of pressure thrust upon her ahead of this year's fashion extravaganza, which took place at Mercedes Benz Arena in Shanghai, China, on Monday (20.11.17) because her man Laurens van Leeuwen, mother Saskia Bennis and other relatives were in the audience.
Speaking in a video shared on her Instagram Story, which lasts on the photo-sharing site for 24 hours, the blonde-haired beauty said: ''We are walking to the backstage for round two, Laurens is going to be there, Caroline, Roy, my mum and her boyfriend, and it makes me even more nervous, but it's going to be alright. We are going to have a lot of fun.''
Despite her nerves, Romee walked the special U-shaped runway without any hiccups and she was delighted with how the event went.
She posted: ''We just finished the first show and it was so good.''
This year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was split into six segments; Punk - which showcased the VS x Balmain range, a collaboration between Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing and VS - Porcelain Angel, Winter's Tale, Millenial Nation, Goddesses and Nomadic Adventure.
