She's one of Victoria's Secret's favorite Angels.

So there was no way that Gigi Hadid would pass up the launch of the book Backstage Secrets: A Decade Behind the Scenes at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show by photographer Russell James in New York Thursday.

At the event the 23-year-old stunner made an impression in a white silk dress by Vivienne Westwood which expertly flattered her statuesque figure.

 

 

Gigi smoldered in the high-necked creme look with a dramatic leg slit.

The dress was cinched her waist with a sash that matched the silky necktie.

Adding an extra bit of shimmer, the IMG beauty put on crushed velvet heels and diamond rings galore.

She tucked her dark blonde locks behind her ears, letting them cascaded down her back with a bit of natural texture.

Gigi gushed about the book on her social media, sharing several of her favorite pages with her 40million Instagram followers.

'My childhood dream was always to be in the VS show and have RJ shoot me backstage,' she wrote over a sizzling portrait of herself in the book.

She used another post to praise Angel Candice Swanepoel and her world-class derriere, captioning images of the blonde: 'Cuz we all know I've been obsessed [peach emoji.]

'I grew up w some of the pics in this book !!!!! They made me dream!' adding, 'and I used to do practice runway walks during VSFS commercial breaks.'

Of course all of VS's most beloved Angels also made appearances.

Sara Sampaio smoldered in a patent leather look with chandelier-like beading hanging from the hem of an off-center skirt.

The Portuguese beauty tied her hair back into a high ponytail while keeping her face at a natural glow with just a hint of mascara and bronzer.

Sara teamed up with the evening's man of honor, fashion photographer Russell James.

The Aussie talent looked thrilled to see his muse.

RJ, as he's known by the models, was both relaxed and sharp in a white shirt and blazer worn with blue jeans and sandals.

Stunner Lais Ribero put her jaw-dropping figure on display in formfitting red look.

Her dress hugged her bombshell figure and highlighted her full chest.

An asymmetrical spaghetti strap elevated the look from a simple cocktail dress to a sartorial statement.

The 6foot beauty accessorized with hoop earrings and strappy black heels, letting her scarlet look take the spotlight.

Josephine Skriver dazzled in a black and silver mini-dress which let her long legs steal the show.

The Danish darling's look hit about mid-thigh, offering up a great view of her gams.

Laced-up cutouts on the shoulders gave up yet another dose of skin.

The dark blonde starlet piled her locks into a messy bun while going for a classic glow on her face.

Maggie Laine got hearts racing in a sheer lace top which left little the the imagination.

She teamed the belly baring crop teamed with a high-low fringed skirt.

The IMG cutie's hair was styled into bubbly curls, which she brushed out of her face with a center part.

The book, which retails for $85 on Amazon, boasts moments with models Lily Aldridge, Alessandra Ambrosio, Gisele Bündchen, Gigi Hadid, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Miranda Kerr, Karlie Kloss, Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel, and Liu Wen.

It also captured moments with the show's A-list entertainers, including Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj, Rhianna, Taylor Swift, and Justin Timberlake.

The book's back cover described James' uncanny ability to capture 'the most watched fashion event in the world.'

'His special relationship with the talent and the brand has allowed him to capture the frantic energy and excitement from backstage, where no other cameras have been allowed to go.'

Last year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was a historic occasion for the brand.

The show, which took place in Shanghai, China, was the lingerie company's first event in all of Asia.

Details have yet to emerge about 2018's highly anticipated fashion affair.
