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 »
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 »
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.
