Tomorrow some of the biggest names in the modeling world are set to take the stage at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in New York—yet a few notable faces will be missing.

This will be the first year without VS Angel Alessandra Ambrosio. She’s walked a total of 17 shows, but officially hung up her wings after the big show in Shanghai. Ambrosio’s first show was in 2000 at 20 years old, just a year after fellow Brazilian Adriana Lima‘s first walk with the lingerie powerhouse. The duo became two of the most famous faces for the Victoria’s Secret brand, but Adriana Lima will carry on without her Brazilian bombshell counterpart.

Victoria Secret will also be down another angel, Lily Aldridge. The California-born beauty is currently pregnant with her second child, which she announced on Instagram back in August.
