Though still several months off, the event of the year (in lingerie terms, at least) is coming together as we speak. The annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, rumored to take place in Shanghai this year, is kicking off the season with an N.Y.C. casting call.
VS law states that “Angels” are exempt from the audition process, though everyone else (regardless of how many shows they’ve walked in previously) must attend the casting call each year.
This year’s crop of prospective models included rookies like Hailey Baldwin and Josie Canseco, as well as seasoned VS alums like Izabel Goulart and Kelly Gale.
Since it’s as (if not more) important what models are doing off the runway as on, the gals dressed to impress at Monday’s N.Y.C.-based casting call.

Scroll down below to see what some of the Angel hopefuls wore to the high-profile audition.
1. Josie Canseco
The 20-year-old up-and-comer experimented with high-low dressing at the call on Monday, arriving in a pair of voluminous high-waist black pants and a tiny white bandeau top. Josie, daughter to MLB alum Jose Canseco, accessorized her trendy ensemble with gold hoops and a matching choker.
2. Izabel Goulart
The Brazilian model is a longtime VS veteran—she's been walking in the annual show for the past 10 years—however, she's no longer an angel, so she must audition each year. Goulart, 32, showed off her insane abs on her way to the call, arriving in a raw hem shoulder-baring crop top with bell sleeves, ultra-skinny jeans, black booties, and round-lens shades.
3. Kelly Gale
The 22-year-old Swedish-Australian model has walked in each VS show since 2013. Gale looked stylishly on brand at the audition in cropped camo pants, a leather motorcycle jacket, suede booties, and an ab-baring crop top.
4. Hailey Baldwin
Baldwin, 20, arrived at the casting call in low-slung distressed skinny jeans, a sheer crop top with black appliques keeping the style "safe for work," and a pair of lace-up black pumps.
5. Jasmine Tookes
The 26-year-old VS Angel isn't required to partake in the audition process, but she was at the casting call's N.Y.C. headquarters regardless, clad in a simple polka dot sundress, light-wash denim jacket, and white sneakers. She accessorized with a quilted Chanel handbag, animal-print sunglasses, and layered chokers.
