Behati Prinsloo and Karli Kloss explain absence from Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

Victoria’s Secret Angels Behati Prinsloo and Karli Kloss are finally sharing why they won’t be donning a pair of wings for this year’s show, which will take place in Paris.

Both women took to Instagram to confirm that they wouldn’t be participating in the show but they each had very different reasons for their absences.

For Prinsloo, the duty of being a mother to her 2-month-old daughter Dusty Rose, came first. “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,” she said before hinting that she’d possibly be making an appearance at next year’s show.

For Kloss, who hasn’t walked in a show since 2014, work conflicts kept her away this time around. Kloss didn’t divulge what her other commitment was. “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,” she said in her Instagram post.
