Androgynous model Rain Dove is bypassing the exacting physical standards Victoria’s Secret imposes on its “Angels” by doing her own photoshoot in the brand’s lingerie. She’s included two images for each shot: One with a VS model’s head superimposed over her own, and then just the original image of Dove.

Dove orchestrated theREAD MORE »

Yesterday, the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show took place. Who knew? Not me, because I’m loath to wear a bra.

Also yesterday, Microsoft introduced a facial recognition tool that guesses your emotions. If you put these two momentous events together, you get this blog post, because I used theREAD MORE »

Victoria’s Secret launched an ad campaign in the UK with the words ‘The Perfect “Body”’ plastered over a lineup of the tall, size-nothing, airbrushed, Photoshopped Angels. I shouldn’t have to say so, but I will spell out that the ad implies that the perfect body is tall, size-nothing, airbrushed, and Photoshopped, which is a standard… READ MORE »

Adam Levine will marry Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo at a Mexican resort tomorrow. Other Victoria’s Secret models, as well as Jonah Hill, will be in attendance, though our invitation seems to have gotten lost in the mail. Congrats! [Daily Mail UK]

Victoria’s Secret model Jessica Hart is supposedly getting dumped by the brand after she publicly dissed Taylor Swift, who performed at this year’s VS Fashion Show. Hart told a reporter Swift “didn’t fit” at the occasion. Sources tell Page Six that Hart will no longer appear in VS catalogs or walk in future fashion… READ MORE »

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show won’t air on television until December 10, so if you’re the type of person that likes to see the looks live for the first time (do those people exist?), SPOILER ALERT. Sexiness is in the eye of the beholder, to be certain, but if these over-the-top outfits are the brand’s… READ MORE »

I try to restrain myself from straying too far down the rabbit hole of the vaguely dehumanizing, inherently anti-feminist fuckery that is Victoria’s Secret, but that was before I knew they gave out a “Sexiest Curves” trophy. Sure, if they simply must do it, I’m glad they decided to give it to Shakira, a wildly… READ MORE »

It’s terrible. We were so pulling for Kylie Bisutti, the former winged-underwear model. After all, Victoria’s Secret models are usually only known for doing one of two things: losing all their baby weight in two weeks or dating Adam Levine. Bisutti, on the (wayyy) other hand, left the coveted model position last year because it… READ MORE »

Models: they’re the editorial picture of loveliness and good breeding and long legs and dagger-like cheekbones, and, well, many of them smoke like chimneys. This is not to say that all models are smokers, or that all smokers are models for that matter (no, what?), but you’d be hard-pressed to come up with a well-publicized… READ MORE »

This week, the world lost a prolific and brave modelizer, when Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine proposed to (what else?) model Behati Prinsloo. There are practically zero photos of them together, and I’m pretty sure this is just some crazy rebound marriage from his relationship with (yup) model Anne V. (who yes, walks the runway… READ MORE »

This weekend in San Francisco, the organization About-Face hosted a protest where participants shed their clothing in front of Victoria’s Secret as a statement against the company’s exclusive use of unrealistic body images. In just bras and underwear, the protesters bared their real human bodies proudly to the world while holding signs with phrases like… READ MORE »

Victoria’s Secret is not happy with model Kylie Bisutti. Earlier this week, Bisutti, who says she left modeling to focus on her Christianity, says she was harshly treated by the lingerie brand. After winning a VS Angel modeling competition in 2009, Bisutti says she was floored by the way the brand treated women. Now she’s… READ MORE »

High school students wear underwear. Middle schoolers, even!

Crazy, I know. That’s who Victoria’s Secret’s new line, Bright Young Things, is targeting: the girls who are a little too young for the Pink line of mostly cotton panties, thongs, sweatpants and tees.

This is making lots of people upset.

The word “robe” immediately conjures images of lumpy, stained, novelty-print terry cloth garments. These kinds of robes are fine for lounging around the house when you have the flu, but what if you’re looking for a little more glamour in your loungewear? More Liza Minnelli in “Cabaret” than Gwyneth Paltrow in “Contagion”? We’ve got you… READ MORE »

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?
