For many models, walking in the illustrious and glamorous Victoria’s Secret Show is a lifetime ambition.
Supermodels including Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Alessandra Ambrosio have all walked in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show since it started in 1995.
This year, 25-year-old Hungarian model Barbara Palvin was one of them taking to the runway with style which left the audience stunned.
As the crowd watched on, Palvin’s boyfriend, Dylan Sprouse, decided to show his girl some support – standing up, putting his hand on his heart, and cheering her on.
In a video taken by another attendee, which has since gone viral, the actor can be seen getting out of his seat when Palvin arrives on the catwalk, looking at her lovingly while she struts her stuff.

While his act of support is probably enough to win Sprouse boyfriend of the year, he also showed his sweet side after the show when he brought Palvin some yummy snacks.
Leading up to the show Palvin had to follow a strict diet in preparation, meaning as soon as her work was done she would be ready to eat something greasy and comforting.
Making sure she got it, Sprouse arrived with a bag full of cheeseburgers from Shake Shack which Palvin clearly appreciated saying ‘ouhh yeah baby’ on her Instagram.
Sprouse, who’s been inseparable from Palvin since they started dating back in July this year, planned on being his girl’s biggest cheerleader at the show as he told E! News on Halloween.
I will be cheering her on very loudly, annoying her, embarrassing her!
You know what, it’s hard to see like from these interviews and I guess just from the Instagram posts and stuff how hard she’s really worked to do this.
So I think the best part for me is just knowing that like after all of that, it really paid off. So I’m excited to see the coalescence of all that work.
Now where can I get myself a guy just like sweet Sprouse?
The show was also an emotional one for 37-year-old model Adriana Lima who, after being a Victoria’s Secret Angel for the last 19 years, made her last appearance on the catwalk.
As she walked in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for the last time, Lima broke down in tears.
Taking to her Instagram before the show, Lima shared an emotional tribute to Victoria’s Secret by posting a montage of her career highlights.
Dear Victoria, Thank you for showing me the world, sharing your secrets, and most importantly not just giving me wings but teaching me to fly.
And all the [love] to the best fans in the [world]! Love, Adriana
Receiving nearly eight million views at time of writing (November 10), fans have shown the video their support, filling the comments with love.
Having walked a total of 18 shows – missing just the one year when she was pregnant – Lima has had an incredible career with the brand.
