Seasoned Victoria’s Secret models Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel and Karlie Kloss won’t be walking on the runway in Paris this year, but that didn’t stop them from wishing good luck to the girls who will be.
Twenty seven-year-old Prinsloo is skipping the show to stay at home with her new daughter, Dusty Rose, who was born on September 21. This year would have been the model’s 10th year walking in the show-she is also one of only three Angels to have opened the show twice. The Namibian model posted a throwback photo on her Instagram wishing the models and the crew her best wishes.
“Opening the #vsfashionshow for the first time was a dream come true opening twice in a row was just NUTS, still pinching myself,” the new mother wrote. “To the girls and crew, good luck in Paris, me and Dusty Rose will be cheering. I know the blood sweat and tears that goes into the making of this show and also being in it, this would have been my 10th year. I can’t believe it. Love you all, have fun in Paris and see you next year!!!!”
Swanepoel, 28, is also a new mother sitting out of this year’s show. She gave birth to a son, Añaca, just weeks after her Prinsloo. She gave an enthusiastic message to the current VS models, and promised to be back next year.
“Guys! Goodluck in paris beautiful ladies! So sad to be missing this show! No doubt it will be magical?So hard for me to disappoint the people that always root for me, I wish I was there making you all proud. ☺️ Girls, enjoy the moments together, cant wait to see the show and Can’t wait for vsfs2017!”
Karlie Kloss, 24, also had to miss the VS show this year because of a conflicting work obligation. She posted a throwback pic from the 2013 show (can you spot Taylor Swift?) with a pep talk for this year’s models.
“Thinking of the Angels and my entire @victoriassecret family as they make their way to Paris today. Unfortunately this year I have a work obligation that is keeping me from Paris. I’m sad to miss it but am wishing everyone all the best from afar! There is truly no show quite like the VS Fashion Show, and there is no feeling quite like walking on that magnificent runway. To all my girls walking, good luck and enjoy every minute of it!!! I can’t wait to see you all shine bright over in Paris ❤️ all my love xx kk”
