The lingerie brand's annual event takes place in November and airs the following month on CBS in America.

Russian beauty Irina will not be walking this year claims the New York Post, as she is pursuing other ventures instead.

According to Page Six, the 27-year-old is busy filming Hercules, which also stars Hollywood hunk Dwayne Johnson.

Another star who will be missing from the line-up is model-of-the-moment, 21-year-old Cara Delevingne.

The Brit was apparently tapped by the brand, but turned the opportunity down so she could appear in a biopic about Amanda Knox instead.

"Victoria's Secret want Cara to do the show this year," a friend of the model told British newspaper the Mail on Sunday.

"They love the quirkiness she brings. But acting is where her heart really lies and she wants to prioritise that over modelling."

Auditions for the show take place this week, but some familiar faces have already been confirmed.

Angels Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, Adriana Lima, Lily Aldridge, Lindsay Ellingson, Karlie Kloss, Doutzen Kroes and Behati Prinsloo will all be making an appearance.

Missing from the show will be Miranda Kerr, who hung up her Angel wings earlier this year.

She's taken to the catwalk every year since 2007, apart from 2010 when she was pregnant with her son Flynn.

“They asked me to walk in the show, and I really wanted to, but I have to be in Asia that week,” Miranda said. “It’s interesting to know that it will be the first year that I’m not there!”
