The line-up for the 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show appears to be set. Although Victoria's Secret itself has yet to release a full list of who will be walking in the show this year, they have slowly been revealing a few names. Karlie Kloss is apparently back after a one-year hiatus following her amicable departure from the brand in 2015 to focus on her education, as are VS regulars Lily Aldridge, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima, as well as Jasmine Tookes, who will wear this year's Fantasy Bra. The line-up also includes a slew of new faces — "rookies", as they call them — including Bella Hadid, who will walk the runway alongside her big sister Gigi.
Of course, making room for all the newcomers and returning favourites means that the brand has had to cut quite a few names from the 2015 line-up, some of whom have been walking in the show for the better part of the last decade. Understandably, new mothers Behati Prinsloo and Candice Swanepoel are sitting this year out, having given birth in September and October respectively, although they will probably return to the catwalk in 2017.
Some of the cuts, however, are unexpected. Can you imagine a Victoria's Secret Fashion Show without Magdalena Frackowiak? Or what about Jac Jagaciak? Last year, she was cast as an official 'Angel' and this year she doesn't even appear to be in the show. Of course, it's possible that Magdalena, Jac, and co will appear in the show and, for now, are just lying low on social media, but when every other model is taking to Instagram to gush about how excited she is to be going to Paris in November, the silence of these 12 models seems to speak volumes.
