I feel many vs models shouldn't be in the show this year lol. Namely, Julia, Erin (she has a contract though ), Anja Rubik and Constance Jablonski. Sometimes I wish I was part of the people who cast the models, they usually seem mediocre apart from the angels.
I'd like to see new models like: Jourdan Dunn, Daphne Groeneveld(i think she'll look beautiful), Frida Gustavsson, Tanya Dziahileva (her strut will be awesome), Natasha Poly (her presence will add value), Nyasha Matonhodze (that's if she's 18 yet), and Melodie Monrose. *sigh*
i'd LOVE to see someone like Irina Shayk on this show. she's unbelievably sexy and curvy and everything that the VS woman used to be. maybe she's too famous and would overshadow the Angels. but i'd love to see her there.

I think Doutzen has what it takes to open a show. Adriana is good but it's too safe and repetative. Ale /Candice - so far not impressed ( segments opening - yes, show - likely no or not to a slow music lol).
My dream opening would be a la 2005 though, with a bunch of fierce girls.
Limited Brands recently bought out La Senza, around the same time that Ginta started working for them. Her work with Express has also picked up lately, so I'll keep my fingers crossed that they offer her some VS work soon! (:
I can't see Rosie ever coming back, it would be a little strange considering that she has her own line of lingerie now to show up and willingly promote another brand.
As far as the opener is concerned it probably will be Ade again, it's the safe option, and you sort of need her 'power' walk to kick things off and draw you in. As much as i love Candice she was a bad choice for opener last year, by nature she is a very 'subdued' runway walker, she's better suited to close a segment.
It would be cool for one of the classic VS girls to do a "comeback" appearance the way we've been seeing it at fashion week. For instance Laetitia Casta would be great to see again just like Carolyn Murphy showed up at Jason Wu.
