Ask The Man Panel: 2013 Valentine’s Day Lingerie

Every Valentine’s Day involves a new barrage of “sexy” lingerie offerings, from lacy teddies to complicated themed costumes. But what do guys really think of these skimpy bedroom outfits? To find out, we asked a bunch of our guy friends to weigh in on six very different V-Day lingerie options and assign each one a sexiness rating from 1-10 (1 being not sexy, 10 being super sexy). Last year’s Man Panel revealed that a large portion of the male population is harboring a serious “Fifth Element” fetish. What will this year’s answers reveal? Read on for a hilarious peek inside the minds of men!

  • Constance Jablonski, a Victoria’s Secret Angel and the face of Estée Lauder cosmetics, is in big legal trouble to the tune of $3.3 million for violating her three-year contract with Marilyn Model Management to work for a rival modeling firm. [Daily News]

A Victoria’s Secret Model Breaks Down Privilege And Physical Insecurity In TED Talk

Victoria’s Secret model Cameron Russell gives honest answers to questions about the superficiality—and the importance—of physical appearance in our society. Speaking as someone who fully acknowledges her success stems from her winning the “genetic lottery,” Russell’s perspective is quite interesting. My favorite part is when she explains what she wants to say to little girls when they tell her they want to be a model: That they should instead aspire to ”Be my boss. Because I’m not in charge of anything. And you could be the editor-in-chief of American Vogue or the CEO of H&M or the next [legendary fashion photographer] Steven Meisel.”

(It would be great if she actually told them that, but I won’t judge her for it.) Watch the video here!

The Anti-Rape Panties Of “Victoria’s Secret”

Timed to coincide with tonight’s telecast of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, some activist types launched “PINK loves CONSENT,” a Victoria’s Secret parody peddling anti-rape panties. ”To win back customers it has alienated with its ‘rape culture’ styles,” an activist who insisted she worked for Victoria’s Secret told Jezebel, the brand would replace apparently rape-friendly slogans like “SURE THING” with rape-thwarting slogans like “ASK FIRST.” “When it comes to sex, words like ‘no’ are for setting boundaries, NOT flirting.”

Within 24 hours of its launch, Jezebel debunked the campaign. Female bloggers took to Tumblr, warning one another that this anti-rape lingerie line was not real, so do not fall for it. Read more…

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Is Ridiculous, As Usual

The Victoria’s Secret fashion show was last night, and it was bonkers. In between performances by Bruno Mars, Rihanna and Justin Bieber (whose presence seemed comically inappropriate), models like Miranda Kerr, Candace Swanepoel and Behati Prinsloo strutted their stuff on the runway. Every year, the Victoria’s Secret designers go out of their way to create totally outlandish and wild “sexy” costumes, and this latest runway show was no exception. Check out some of our favorite ridiculous looks (and a totally offensive “Native American” headdress), above!
