Karlie Kloss to walk in 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show
UPI News Service, 08/31/2017
Karlie Kloss will walk the runway in the 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
The 25-year-old model and former Victoria's Secret Angel confirmed in an Instagram post Wednesday that she will return for this year's show in Shanghai, China.
"See you in Shanghai @VictoriasSecret," she captioned a photo of herself from the 2014 show.
Kloss served as a Victoria's Secret Angel from 2011 to 2014.
People reported in 2015 that the model was leaving the lingerie company to focus on her other modeling work and attend college at New York University.
"The decision came down to timing," a source said at the time. "She'll be focusing on her modeling career, new business opportunities and NYU starting in the fall."
Kloss discussed her experience with the fashion show in an interview with InStyle in November 2014. She described the energy leading up to the annual event as "pretty unreal."
"It's this day that you've been preparing for all year; millions of dollars of preparations, hundreds of people all year preparing for this one day, and you really just want to do what you can to not mess it up and do your best!" the star said.
"It's a really special day when it finally all comes together in that moment when the show actually happens," she added.
Kloss will join the 14 current Victoria's Secret Angels and 18 newcomers at the 2017 show. Model sisters Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid confirmed this week that they will also return for the event.
