These are the stories making headlines in fashion this Monday.

Karlie Kloss to skip this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show
Contrary to earlier rumors, former Victoria's Secret Angel Karlie Kloss announced on Instagram that a "work obligation" was keeping her from walking in the brand's annual runway extravaganza in Paris this year. "There is truly no show quite like the VS Fashion Show, and there is no feeling quite like walking on that magnificent runway," fashion's favorite coder captioned the throwback photo of the cohort of models (and Kloss's future bestie, Taylor Swift) who walked in 2013. Meanwhile, you can keep up with the 2016 festivities, which film this week, on Instagram via the hashtag "#VSFashionShow." {@karliekloss/Instagram}

Bottega Veneta follows in the footsteps of fellow Kering brand, Gucci, which made a similar decision this past April. {Business of Fashion}

Vivienne Westwood burns $7 million worth of punk memorabilia

Behati Prinsloo plans to return to Victoria's Secret Fashion Show next year
Veteran Angel Behati Prinsloo gave birth to daughter Dusty Rose Levine just two months ago, so it's understandable that she skipped out on this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show — but a recent post on Instagram showed that the runway remains top of mind. After noting that this would've been her 10th year walking, she said that she and her daughter would be cheering on the other models from afar, writing: "Love you all, have fun in Paris and see you next year!!!!" {People}

More fallout from Glamour Brasil incident
Earlier this month, Glamour Brasil posted a Boomerang video that featured seven staffers — including Editor in Chief Monica Salgado — bowing or pulling their eyelids sideways in "honor" of an upcoming Japan-themed issue. The post was criticized as being racist and the magazine issued an apology. But last week, a freelance contributor's services were suspended after "liking" comments on social media that criticized the original video, landing Glamour Brasil in hot water once again. {WWD}
