The US lingerie brand's model lineup for its next fashion show, due to be taped November 19, includes fresh-faced Chanel Iman and other newcomers, while Heidi Klum takes a pass.

According to E! News, however, Klum -- who gave birth to daughter Lou just a few weeks ago -- will participate in another way: by hosting the show, a task the supermodel should be familiar with, having hosted TV programs such as Project Runway and Germany's Next Top Model.

Victoria's Secret 'veterans' Klum, Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, and Doutzen Kroes will be joined as spokesmodels by Emanuela de Paula, Lindsay Ellingson, Candice Swanepoel, Chanel Iman and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, as announced November 4. All of them have previously modeled for the brand.

The choice of Iman and Huntington-Whiteley is striking since both models have been building a name for themselves in high fashion, indicating an increasing fusion between couture and pin-up.

Victoria's Secret's show, taking place in New York on November 19, will be aired on December 1 at 10/9C on CBS.
