It's that time of year again: the cold sets in and we become less active. And a certain underwear company holds a big fashion show in which women wear very little. While many of us choose not to watch the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, we are all exposed to it through social media, regardless of whether we want to or not.

Are you ready for this? There are just 13 days to go until we see some of the world's most beautiful women take to the VS runway for the lingerie brand's annual fashion show, and we can hardly stand the wait!
With the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show now just a month away, we have only one question on our minds: who will walk the runway this season? While there have been countless rumors as of late, we now know of at least a few gorgeous models making the trip across the pond next month.
