Victoria's Secret: 10 models you just cannot miss

Last updated on: November 15, 2016 17:20 IST

We're glad that these models are back this season! 

The annual Victoria's Secret extravaganza is less than a month away! It's touted to be the biggest one ever in the history of the lingerie brand.

This year the show which will take place for the very first time in Paris, boasts of a glamorous lineup of models including Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Alessandra Ambrosio, Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss, among others.

While newly-minted angel Jasmine Tookes, who received her VS angel wings in 2015, will rock the Fantasy Bra, there are some old-timers who promise to make the annual fashion show worth the while. 

Take a look at the Top 10 models who you cannot afford to miss!
