Among those returning to the glittery catwalk are longstanding Angels Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Lily Aldridge, as well as African models Candice Swanepoel and Behati Prinsloo, both of whom are back after taking last year off to have their first child.
Still, a few months to go and then it’s time for our favorite annual show; the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Which models will we see, who will return and who are the new faces?
Last year the models shined on the catwalk in the Grand Palais in the fashion city, Paris. This year it will be totally different and the show will take place November 28th in Shanghai! This year, turn out for the casting was as competitive as ever, with 400 girls attending the New York call-backs which were run by casting director John Pfeiffer.
All of those in attendance were required to wear the same set of Victoria’s Secret underwear to ensure a level playing field as they auditioned in front of a hawk-eyed lineup consisting of Pfeiffer as well as Victoria’s Secret’s Ed Razek, producer Monica Mitro and super-stylist Sophia Neophitou.
Other familiar faces include Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, Josephine Skriver, Lais Ribeiro, Martha Hunt, Romee Strijd, Sara Sampaio, Stella Maxwell, Taylor Hill and Bella Hadid.
Sadly we miss two noticeable names; Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, neither of whom have thus far announced their return to the catwalk.
