The annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show will premiere Sunday night from Manhattan, featuring a slew of A-list models such as Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Jasmine Tookes and Barbara Palvin. And while auditioning and preparing for the lingerie show is obviously no easy feat, two top models proved just how much hard work goes into the production by gracing the runway only a few months after giving birth.
Behati Prinsloo, who took two years off from the Victoria's Secret runway to welcome her children with husband Adam Levine, made a spectacular return in a slinky plaid number. Her youngest, Gio, was born just 7 months ago.
Meanwhile, fellow veteran Angel Candice Swanepoel stole the show only 5 months after giving birth to her second son, Ariel, with fiance Hermann Nicoli. The 30-year-old put her post-baby body to the test in a studded rhinestone lingerie set, later changing into gold and pink feathered wings for her second look.
Both models have been vocal about the postpartum process, while acknowledging all the work that goes into getting back to the "norm."
"Our bodies become a vessel and it's a mind blowing process making a human being," wrote Candice on Instagram. "I'm far from perfect and every mother should give themselves time to recover and not have to focus on what they look like. It's about how you FEEL that is important. You are important."
Tune in to Sunday night's show at 10pm.
