Karlie Kloss is officially hanging up her angel wings. The 22-year-old beauty is leaving Victoria's Secret after just two years to make time for upcoming projects.
Karlie Kloss has been one of Victoria's Secret's most popular angels
The model has been one of the lingerie brand's biggest stars since her 2011 debut in the annual show extravaganza and becoming an angel officially in 2013.
But Karlie has decided that it is time to focus on other commitments.
Ed Razek, senior creative for Victoria's Secret, said: "Karlie and I met several months ago to discuss the many things she hoped to do in her life and career. As we talked, it became clear she would not have the time to fulfil her myriad commitments.

"Reluctantly, we agreed she would leave the brand at the end of her contract. Karlie is one of a kind, a very close friend, someone I truly admire and love.
"She is, without question, one of the best models ever. But she is an even better person. Her future is unlimited, and I am excited to see all the good she will do. Karlie Kloss will always be an angel to me."

Karlie's exit from the brand doesn't come as a complete surprise to industry insiders – she is one of the most in-demand models of the moment and she also goes to university.
"Karlie has so much going on," a source told Hollywoodlife.com.
"On top of all of her modelling jobs, she's also going to school now. With her schooling, the obligations just wouldn't fit into her schedule. Contractually, it didn't work."
