Erin Heatherton Approves Of Victoria’s Secret’s Photoshop Obsession

Scanning through magazines is always a really nice way to reduce my over-inflated ego. Typically there are pictures on pictures of beautiful, svelte women and I sit there like “Well…I guess I could start a diet” as I shove another Oreo into my face because YOLO. I mean it’s obvious that all of the picture…

Victoria’s Secret Offends With “Sexy Little Geisha” Outfit

Sometimes brands are so dopey that you almost feel bad for them for not realizing they were being racist. (Almost.) First Paul Frank were ding-dongs with their Native American tee-pees-and-tomahawks party on Fashion's Night Out. And now Victoria's Secret is selling an outfit called "Sexy Little Geisha" featuring an "Oriental" patterned fan and hair stick…

Cheap & Chic: A Better Burberry Trench

Winona fell in love with this Burberry military coat -- but at $1,095, there was no way she could actually afford it. A thousand dollars for a coat is crazy, anyway. So we decided to give Ms. Winona Judd Dimeo-Ediger a couple of actually affordable options. Check out our less expensive alternatives after the jump!

Victoria’s Secret Angel Doutzen Kroes Unretouched!

Of all the Victoria's Secret Angels, Doutzen Kroes is the one whom I would most like to trade lives with (Doutzen, if you're interested, call me). The Dutch model, who also has aspirations of launching a film career, is the pride and joy of her native province, one of the world's top-earning supermodels, miraculously adored…

Face-Off: Kristin Kreuk Vs. VS Angels In Battle Of The Babes

It's gotta be hard out here for a Victoria's Secret Angel, having to stay so damn sexy all the time. I, for one, could never pull it off, especially when you consider that things like ice cream cake and Tate's cookies exist. Regardless (now I'm all thinking about food and stuff), the Angels have a…

8 Stores That Instantly Make Me Feel Old, Fat, And Grumpy

I'm a little uneasy about getting older, but it's definitely not something that's on my mind 24/7. There is one place, however, that forces me to confront the harsh passage of time more than any other, and that's the mall. Stores I once bounded into with youthful glee now turn me into a scowling curmudgeon.

Enjoy This Ridiculous Vintage Victoria’s Secret Catalog

These days, Victoria's Secret is associated with straight up sex appeal. But back in the '70s, the lingerie company's catalog was more cheesy, soft lighting and elegant romance than sexy curves. The folks over at Beverly Hills Honeys unearthed this classic Vicky's Secret catalog from 1979 and it's full of high buns, satin pajamas and…

Victoria’s Secret Models — Without Airbrushing

A lot of work -- and airbrushing -- goes into modeling. Here are (from left to right) Alessandra Ambrosio, Crystal Renn and Brooklyn Decker posing for Victoria's Secret. And in this shot, they've been caught without a whiff of airbrushing. Look how ... normal they look (well, Renn and Decker, anyway). [FashionIndie]…

Style Stealer: Miranda Kerr’s Off-Duty Cool

Miranda Kerr leads a pretty charmed life, what with being a Victoria's Secret model with a killer body who also happens to be married to Orlando Bloom and all. I have to give the girl some credit, though, for putting together a consistently cool style repertoire. When she's not all decked out at events —…

Accused Bra Bandits Allegedly Stole Hundreds Of Undergarments From Victoria’s Secret

Police in Florida have arrested two women they say stole thousands of dollar's worth of bras from Victoria's Secret stores in Boca Raton and Boynton Beach. Tysheka Pink, 29, of Miami, has been charged with two counts of grand theft and one count of organized scheme to defraud. Katina Summerset, 39, of Florida City, wa…

Christian Victoria’s Secret Model Quits On Account Of Jesus

In 2009, Victoria's Secret launched a nationwide competition to seek out their newest Angel. Out of 10,000 real-girl applicants, all voted upon by fans online, only one emerged victorious: the then-19-year-old Kylie Bisutti, a newlywed Californian who then walked in the annual show alongside the established Angels. To most aspiring models, this would be a…

The VS Angels Share Their First Kiss Stories

You may recall my response to New York mag's biting piece on Victoria's Secret Angel Miranda Kerr, in which I voiced my concern that the Angels may not in fact be human but rather, if I may quote myself, "tall, lithe, bronzed to perfection, fast-metabolizing aliens with silky long hair and bedroom eyes." Indeed, every…

Victoria’s Secret Launches High-End Collection

Victoria's Secret may be the biggest mass merchandiser of lingerie, but as anyone who has worn their bras can attest to, their offerings have a tendency to be shoddy at best. Sure, the deals they do on their underwear are nice (3 for $10 is pretty much unbeatable), but VS is undeniably on the lower…

Victoria’s Secret Uses Cotton Sourced By Child Laborers

Shocking: Victoria's Secret is a house of lies! The cotton used for their underwear, which they deem on the labels as "fair trade" and "good for women, good for the children who depend on them," has been outed by Bloomberg News. Turns out their methods aren't quite as good or as fair as the company…

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Was … Something

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Who comes up with this stuff? And on what kind of drugs? And are they sharing those drugs? Because it's clear that there's something rather cuckoo clocks about the whole affair. And even though there's tons of boobs and bare bums, it doesn't even seem that sexy -- just campy…

Chanel Iman Has A Totally Different Kind Of Pre-Victoria’s Secret Regimen

While Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima goes to disturbing lengths to stay slim, model and alleged Kanye West canoodler Chanel Iman went to similarly disturbing lengths to put on weight to appear in the televised lingerie fashion show. Apparently, Iman gained 15 pounds in order to walk in the show, adding curves to her otherwise…

Adriana Lima Reveals Her Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Diet/Starvation Plan

Wow. Adriana Lima has revealed how she preps for the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and it sounds … sucky. Adriana works out with a trainer every day, lifting weights, boxing, and jumping rope — which sounds normal for someone whose body is their livelihood — but beginning three weeks ago, she's been exercising twice a

Victoria’s Secret Model Candice Swanepoel Says Dating Is Hard

"I think it's harder to date as an Angel, [because] when people meet [us] it's hard to look past our job, what we look like. They are always trying to impress you, you know, like 'come to my mansion blah blah blah.'" -- Poor Victoria's Secret model/lingerie "angel" Candice Swanepoel, who must constantly deal with a…

Quickies: Diamond-Covered Panties Scraped A Victoria’s Secret Model’s Vagina

Being a Victoria's Secret model is tough, y'all. Just listen to this sob story from Selita Ebanks, who strut down a runway wearing panties made from $4.5 million worth of diamonds, rubies, emeralds and yellow sapphires in 2007. "It hurt. Yeah, diamonds hurt," Ebanks tells me. "I don’t know about wearing diamonds on your crotch.
