Peyton Knight wowed Alexander Wang

Model Peyton Knight cried when she was hired for Alexander Wang.

The 17-year-old fashionista walked her first ever show for the designer as part of New York Fashion Week on Saturday, rocking ensembles such as a sheer striped top with black and white trousers.

It was a shock for Peyton to land the job and she couldn't hold back the tears when receiving the good news.

"Well, I got called back a couple of times to do a mini run through for Alex himself," she told "Then my agent called me the morning after he found out that I had booked the job. He called me into the agency and said, 'You confirmed it last night. I didn't want to freak you out and I wanted you to be able to sleep. You made it.' I started crying, honestly."

And things didn't stop there for the brunette as she also took to the runway for Victoria Beckham in the Big Apple yesterday. She posted a snap of herself alongside the British designer on Instagram, sharing how grateful she was to be a part of the presentation.

"An enormous thanks to#VictoriaBeckham for having me close her sensational #SS16 #NYFW show. thank you @[email protected] @guidopalau#JoeMcKenna #RussellMarsh (sic)" Peyton wrote.

She closed the show, walked in a white collared zip-up sweater with splashes of red, black, blue and brown with a matching skirt.

Victoria herself also shared the photo on her Instagram account, thanking the teenager for her involvement.

"Thank [email protected] for closing my show x vb#VBSS16 (sic)" she wrote.

She also thanked her team for a successful show.
