Kendall, Gigi, and Bella aren’t on this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show cast list
Rumors of a failed Hailey Baldwin audition persist, too
by Amanda Ross
Kendall Jenner and Gigi and Bella Hadid's collective presence at last year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was a divisive one.
Some slammed the trio of well-connected celebrity off-spring as recipients of nepotism, Instagram models who used their famous families to score real gigs. Some (a lot!) loved it. Some were more into The Weeknd. Whatever. Different strokes for different folks.
Whatever your opinion of the it-girls, their absence on the just-released list of models walking in this year's VSFS is causing something of a stir.
While it's entirely possible they just haven't been confirmed yet, VS never puts out a list that isn't finalized. The only models who don't go on the widely-distributed list are the VS Angels. And while the three are definitely draws for the televised show, the likelihood of inking a commitment-heavy Angel contract one season in is slim.

The most fun and nerve racking experience of my life but I wish I could do it over and over and over again!!!!! 🎀🎀Thank you @theweeknd for being the best and most incredible performer on the planet.

Not only are Gigi, Kendall, and Bella not on the list, but neither is their friend and fellow celeb-spawn Hailey Baldwin. We're positive Baldwin auditioned because she was pap'd walking into the casting office, but it seems she wasn't selected. Which is fine because failure makes you stronger, according to every Gatorade commercial ever.
The question remains, though: Why are Kendall, Gigi and Bella (henceforth known as KenGilBe) not on the list? Were they not offered a spot this year? Were they too busy for the show? Did they just not audition? It's entirely possible.
Regardless of the reason for KenGilBe's absence, we reached out to the Victoria's Secret press office for more info.

The apocalypse is nigh. There have been a few false alarms in the past — Planet X, 05/21/11, 12/12/12, etc. but this time it's "really here" and honestly? I'm so tired that at this point IDC if I get raptured or whatever as long as it means I get some sleep. Even if it's in…
Apparently tons of women are getting plastic surgery to look like Ivanka Trump
They’re spending shit tons of money on it, too

Everyone has a celebrity they stare at on Instagram, hoping they either A.) look like them once they're rich enough or B.) are engulfed by an inferno before living another day as an ugly commoner.
