Congrats are in order to Zoella who has been nominated for a Victoria’s Secret #WhatIsSexy award.
The British vlogger – real name Zoe Sugg – has been nominated in the ‘sexiest social star’ category.
This is the first time the American lingerie brand have celebrated social influencers in this way, and Zoella is up against three other beauty vloggers, four fashion bloggers and four fitness bloggers in the contest.
Competing against Zoella for the big prize includes fitness star Kayla Itsines, beauty Youtuber Meghan Reinks, and fashion blogger Anabelle Fleur of the Viva Luxury blog.
If Zoella takes home the prize she will follow in the footsteps of A-listers such as Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Emma Stone who have all previously been awarded ‘What Is Sexy’ gongs by the brand. This award is a pretty big deal.
So, how do they decide the sexiest social star? It goes down to a public vote that is now closed – Victoria’s Secret only gave fans 24 hours to pick their favourite.
However, if all of Zoella’s fans voted, she must surely have a chance of winning. The beauty blogger who found fame primarily on Youtube has a Twitter following of 4.4 million, an Instagram following of 7.5 million and 10 million subscribers on Youtube. If that wasn’t proof of her influence enough, her 2014 book Girl Online was the fastest selling debut book of all time. Yep, ALL time. Madness.
Plus, Zoella has her blogger boyfriend backing her all the way.
Zoella’s boyfriend Alfie Deyes – known on Youtube as Pointless blog – has already shown his support via Twitter for his girlfriend.
