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 by both lingerie purveyors and the fashion set (which, you’ll note, is not the case for most), and has a stunning family that consists of unbelievably good-looking DJ Sunnery James and their son Phyllon, one of the most beautiful children I have ever seen.

So yeah, from what I can tell, Doutzen has things pretty good. There’s also the case of her insane body, which is consistently altered and airbrushed in VS publications … but now we can see for the first time how she actually appears in real life on the set of a VS shoot, thanks to these unretouched photos. You can see how muscular Doutzen is, meaning there’s a good chance she eats food and works out like a maniac. Crazy! [Yeeeah]

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 hallmark beauty look that consists of some pretty basic elements, advertised here by Candice Swanepoel and Bregje Heinen: undone center-parted sex hair (somebody please tell me those manes are extensions and not real, beautiful luscious strands that humans can actually possess), flushed, dewy skin, natural lips, and defined eyes that wing out slightly.

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. Here are 10 stores that my 27-year-old self can barely handle, and why … Keep reading »

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 unlikely scenarios. Take a peek at some of our favorite selections for a retro-flavored laugh.

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]

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 — or, on the flip side, not dressed at all for her VS work — Miranda is out and about in casual, breezy looks that I can’t help but covet. In fact, I would even go so far as to compare her natural command of separates to that of my (and everyone else’s) ultimate style icon, one Kate Moss. A bold statement, yes, but Miranda never disappoints. Case in point: this look that Miranda wore out in NYC yesterday is simple but not boring and urban chic without losing its elegance. Find out how to steal the model’s effortless style, after the jump! [photo via Just Jared] Keep reading »

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, was charged with grand theft.

According to the Boca Raton Police Department, investigators have been searching for the “brassiere bandits” for several months. One of the most recent incidents occurred on Jan. 20, when a woman distracted a clerk at a Victoria’s Secret in Boca Raton while her accomplices stole over $3,000 in bras. Read more…

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 dream come true … but Kylie says otherwise. Now, after two years at the receiving end of a VS salary, she’s decided that lingerie modeling is against her Christian values, and violates the terms of her marriage. Keep reading »

The VS Angels Share Their First Kiss Stories

Watch Video

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 single time I hear one of them speak, my terror is reinforced. For those of us who find simultaneous delight and horror (the two are not, in fact, mutually exclusive) in watching these genetically blessed humanoids discuss personal matters while scantily clad as if they always just hang out in lingerie and unbuttoned oxford shirts, thank the powers that be for bringing us the Victoria’s Secret YouTube channel. This time, to get you all up in the Valentine’s Day spirit, the girls are dishing on their first kisses. Delightful! [Fashionista]

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 end of the lingerie spectrum. In fact, they don’t even sell my size, and let me tell you: it’s not that uncommon. Before I knew about the existence of other lingerie stores, when I thought Victoria’s Secret was the place for bras, sales associates squeezed me into ill-advised sizes and styles that had me looking like a child hooker. Take into account December’s revealing expose on the company’s employment of child laborers for their cotton production (while advertising their garments as fair trade, no less), and I wouldn’t be mad if I never set foot in one of those oppressively fragrant stores ever again. It seems to me like the brand must be feeling the heat of competitors, because they’ve just introduced a high-end line called The Victoria’s Secret Designer Collection. It will include “European” lace, chiffon, and embroidery on a line of bras, baby dolls, kimonos, $38 underwear, and even a corset, which will run you $298. They sold out quickly after debuting on VictoriasSecret.com yesterday, but the collection will hit 13 stores nationwide in June. Call me crazy, but I think I’ll keep giving my business to Figleaves.
