Lingerie giant Victoria's Secret's 'Head Angel' Miranda Kerr is conspicuously absent from this year's extravagant fashion show.

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is the most anticipated fashion extravaganza of the year, with the world's top supermodels vying for a spot on the runway, and the world's biggest music acts jumping for a chance to perform.

As this year's runway list has been announced, Miranda Kerr's name is conspicuously missing as she is said to be "focusing on motherhood" and taking a break from the Victoria's Secret catwalk this year.

While British models Jourdan Dunn and Cara Delevingne are not official 'Angels', they did made their runway debut for the brand last year.

So far, the only confirmed models set to strut their stuff are Lily Aldridge, Doutzen Kroes, Karlie Kloss, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, Lindsay Ellingson and Behati Prinsloo, who recently became engaged to Maroon 5's Adam Levine.

Erin Heatherton is another name missing from this year's line-up.
