It’s one of the biggest fashion events of the year, on par with the Met Ball and fashion week itself. Yes, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is a fashion spectacle not to be missed and like clockwork, this year’s confirmed models have begun to share their exciting news with the world.

This year, the angels are spreading their wings and flying to Shanghai for the show.

Notably missing from the line-up is the controversial Kendall Jenner, who has received heat for being chosen in the past. She’s signed on to be the multi-million-dollar face of La Perla, one of VS’s biggest competitors so wearing a pair of angel wings would be a serious breach of contract.

It’s a lose one, gain one situation though because the much loved Karlie Kloss is returning after a hiatus from the brand! Also note that Candice Swanepoel and Behati Prinsloo are back after missing last year due to their pregnancies and Irina Shayk, who walked in the show whilst 5 months pregnant last year, won’t be back this year.

The current line-up is as follows;

Adriana Lima (Angel)
