Kendall Jenner, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Karlie Kloss, Lily Aldridge, Elsa Hosk and Martha Hunt are among the many models returning to the catwalk. Newcomer Bella Hadid is joining her sister Gigi Hadid, who is making her second appearance. But Behati Prinsloo, who opened the show two years in a row, will be absent from the runaway, after giving birth to her first child in September.

Unfortunately, we have to wait until Dec. 5 to see the angels strut their stuff when the annual lingerie show is broadcast on CBS. But in the meantime, we can check out photos and videos they have posted on social media leading up to their big moment.

Jasmine Tookes, who became an angel in 2012, was scheduled to wear the $3 million Fantasy Bra this year.

Proud mother Yolanda Hadid, also a model, celebrated her daughters being angels with a throwback photo of the two of them. "17 years after I photographed my 'ANGELS' Today is the day that they will be walking in the fashion show together," she wrote on Instagram.
