On Instagram, Merritt shared that she was photographed by Australian lensman Russell James, who is credited as the main photographer of Victoria's Secret and whose book, "Backstage Secrets," chronicles a decade behind the scenes of the lingerie brand's iconic annual fashion show.

Merritt's latest shoot with Victoria's Secret was her fourth, based on her Twitter updates since she scored her first in early May. Her first two were for the active wear line of the brand, Victoria's Secret Sport, while the latter two appeared to be for the main lingerie collection.

An Ateneo de Manila University graduate, Merritt juggled her studies with her modeling career, and only moved to New York full-time after she earned her Communication degree in 2017.

Since then, Merritt's career has shown no signs of slowing down. She's now truly an international model, with Supreme Management representing her in New York, Women Milano in Milan, Wihelmina Models in London, and Nomad MGMT in Miami and Los Angeles.
