The 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show isn't Gigi Hadid's first rodeo and this time, she feels less pressure and will get to share the stage with more special people in her life.

The 21-year-old model will showcase gorgeous lingerie from the popular brand on the runway for the second time, following her 2015 debut.

Gigi told E! News exclusively that making the show "less about pressure and more about positivity and excitement" has resulted in a "calmer year" for her.

"I just am trying to have the best time and enjoy every second," she said. 

Lady Gaga is performing at the 2016 show, which takes place Wednesday in Paris.

"She is an amazing person that has been such a great friend to me and kind of a big sister and has given me so much great advice in my life, so I'm always excited to be anywhere with her and especially tonight, to be in her section," Gigi told E! News exclusively backstage. "I don't know if I'm allowed to say that but we will be on stage together tonight and I'm so excited."

Gigi will also be joined at the show by her real sister and fellow model Bella Hadid, 20, who will appear on the Victoria's Secret catwalk for the first time.

"Can't believe I get to experience all of this with my best friend!" Bella wrote on Instagram Tuesday, alongside a pic of the two backstage. "I LOVE you!"

The Hadid sisters will be joined by the likes of friend and model Kendall Jenner, who is also walking the Victoria's Secret runway for the second time, as well as veteran Victoria's Secret Angels such as Adriana Lima, 35, Alessandra Ambrosio, 35, Lily Aldridge, 31, and Martha Hunt, 27, and other familiar VS faces and newcomers.

"I couldn't be more excited," Gigi told E! News. "This is my second year and I don't ever think it will stop feeling like the biggest dream come true every year. To be able to be with so many amazing girls and to see all of their dreams coming true is one of the most touching, amazing experiences ever. So I'm very excited to be in the show but also to experience it with everyone else is a beautiful thing."

The 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show will air Dec. 5 at 10/9c on CBS.
