Victoria’s Secret Should Probably Get On Board With Body Positivity One Of These Days

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…

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.

13 Of The Most WTF Looks From The 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

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…

Candice Swanepoel Models $10 Million Bra In Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

Candice Swanepoel modeled a $10 million Fantasy Bra at last night's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Dare I say it was kind of fugs? Also, who wears lingerie with long, white gloves? [Vanity Fair] Alec Baldwin's accused stalker Genevieve Sabourin was held in contempt of court yesterday for shouting and causing a scene…

And The Victoria’s Secret “Sexiest Curves” Award Exists Why?

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,…

Ex-Victoria Secret’s Angel Kylie Bisutti’s God-Inspired Clothing Line Is Out And…

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,…

Victoria’s Secret Model Erin Heatherton Gets Photographed Smoking Before An Event

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…

The Frisky Guide To Celebrity Modelizers

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 hi…

Victoria’s Secret Protesters Strip Down For Body Diversity

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.

Model Kylie Bisutti Slams Victoria’s Secret, VS Bites Back

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 wa…

I’m Sorry, But I Don’t Think Victoria’s Secret’s Line For Teens & Tweens Is A Big Deal

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. Pink's Bright Young Things line i…

Must Haves: 7 Sexy Robes

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…

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…

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…

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…

This Week In Style: Too-Skinny Minnie Makes Waves
