One Victoria's Secret Angel won't be joining her pals on the runway in Paris for this year's iconic lingerie show -- Behati Prinsloo.
The 27-year-old Namibian model has appeared in the fashion show nine times since 2007 but she's staying home this year, having just given birth to her daughter, Dusty Rose
, in September.
Prinsloo, who is one of just three Angels to have opened the show two years in a row, sent her best wishes to everyone involved, sharing a throwback pic to her stunning 2014 appearance.
"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!!!!"
Two other Angels will also be missing the show this year: Prinsloo's pal Candice Swanepoel, also a new mother,
and Karlie Kloss, who has conflicting work commitments. Each posted their own throwback pics to Instagram along with messages of support for this year's models.
"Guys! Goodluck in Paris beautiful ladies!" Swanepoel wrote on Instagram. "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, can't wait to see the show and Can't wait for vsfs2017!"
"Thinking of the Angels and my entire @victoriassecret family as they make their way to Paris today," Kloss captioned a photo of the 2013 Angels. "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!"
Despite the absence of three Victoria's Secret regulars, the fashion show will be packed full of the beautiful supermodels it's known for featuring, including Bella Hadid, making her debut, and Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, who are walking the runway for the second year.
Bella and Kendall posed for a picture on Sunday with fellow models Lily Donaldson and Joan Smalls, before jetting off to Paris
to prep for the show.
