Elsa Hosk Angel Wing Inspires Ariana Grande Meme

During the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in London Tuesday, Swedish supermodel Elsa Hosk almost clotheslined pop singer Ariana Grande onstage with her angel wing.

As the 5-foot-tall Grande was performing her set, the 5' 9.5" Victoria's Secret Angel Hosk swooped in, and clipped the singer with her plush pink wing.

The picture of Grande's terrified expression has since become somewhat of an internet meme, though the former Sam & Cat star took the incident in stride.

"A Victoria's Secret angel accidentally smacked me in the face with her wings and it was awesome #goals #bangbangintomyface," Grande wrote on Twitter.

Grande, 21, described a similar wing-related incident during rehearsals on Instagram:

Variations of the ill-fated wing incident:

Grande seems unfazed by the runway snafu, and is excited to return to London.

Hosk, who once played professional basketball for the Swedish women's basketball league, began modelling for Victoria's Secret in 2011. She became the spokesmodel for the VS sister brand PINK in 2012, and was upgraded to an official Angel in 2014.

The annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show airs December 9 at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
