Doutzen Kroes and Miranda Kerr are pregnant and therefore can’t model in the Victoria’s Secret show airing on television later this month. If you’re hoping for a surprise pregnant appearance, don’t count on it — a source close to the brand once laughed when we asked if they would ever put one of the pregnant girls on the runway. One of Victoria’s not-so-secret Secrets is that her runway preference is post-baby bodies, not with-baby bodies. Anyway, with Doutzen and Miranda out this year, the brand finds itself with a couple pairs of those sacred wings lying around. Oh, who to give them to? Glamour just tweeted that “izabel goulart cried at her fitting when she saw she was getting her wings!” Aw. She can finally fly! Fly forth from that glitter runway of bronzer and breasts and abdominals into the modeling megasphere! After some practice in those things so their weight and bulk don’t knock her off balance.
Other models walking in the show ought to include VS faces like Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Chanel Iman, Candice Swanepoel, Behati Prinsloo, Erin Heatherton, Lily Aldridge, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. They are said to be joined by Jessica Stam, Emanuela de Paula, Maryna Linchuk, Magdalena Frackowiak, Edita Vilkeviciute, Isabeli Fontana, and Anja Rubik. Karolina Kurkova is expected to be back as well after taking time off to have her baby. Entertainment Tonight got a look at the always immensely fascinating (no, seriously) casting for this year’s show. Casting director Monica Mitro explains, “The first thing we look for really are healthy bodies, and energy. A lot of the fashion shows you see girls who can just walk and they’re just hangers with outfits hanging on them, but for Victoria’s Secret? It’s a show.” Cue the techno!
