Update (30/10): Last week a handful of the beauties that will be walking in the 2016 Victoria's Secret were announced. Across the weekend, a more extensive line-up was revealed across various sources.
Karlie Kloss is set to return to the stage, having "retired" her Angel wings in 2014 to focus on her studies and other projects, and Kendall Jenner will return to the catwalk for a second time after making her debut last year alongside best friend Gigi Hadid (who is also returning).
Irina Shayk will also make an appearance, her first time on the catwalk for the brand, although she has modelled for the highly coveted catalogue previously.
In the wake of Kim Kardashian West's terrifying robbery in the city, the brand is said to be upping its security measures ahead of the highly-anticipated show. In a statement emailed to registering press, the brand wrote, "Due to heightened security, we will be doing background checks on all personnel," and according to Page Six, journalists were asked to provide names, place of birth and emergency contact details on their applications.

Original article (27/10): News broke yesterday that Bella Hadid will make her Victoria's Secret fashion show debut this year, and more of the line-up has been announced overnight.
It will be a sister act with Gigi Hadid confirming that she will return to the famous catwalk, which is being held in Paris this year, and they will be joined by Australian model Bridget Malcolm, Kelly Gale, Georgia Fowler and Iza Goulart. Clearly all of those intense workouts have paid off.
There is no feeling in the world like walking down this runway. I'm elated to say I'll be returning to the @VictoriasSecret Fashion Show this year. Thank you @ed_razek for putting on the show that has been one of my greatest motivators since I was a teenage fan of the Angels, and for making this dream come true for me again.
