“Diana did it again!” That was my first thought when I saw the recent shoot she had with Photo Karizza. Diana Sirokai is known for re-creating famous shoots to show that they would also look well with a plus size model. This time they choosed […]
This year’s Met Gala celebrated the designs of Rei Kawakubo‘s high fashion brand Comme des Garçons. An exhibition from May until September will continue to feature her, sometimes ‘distressed’ and ‘punk’ oriented, designs. No wonder that some outfits seemed strange for us. To show you […]
Tonight was the Night! The Victoria’s Secret show was held at the Grand Palais in Paris tonight! The most wanted top models were gracing the catwalk at tonight’s show, including the celebrity supermodel Kendall Jenner and Gigi + Bella Hadid.
THE SHOW WAS AGAIN ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS IN THE WORLD, BUT I COULDN’T CARE TO WATCH IT AT ALL!!!!
The reason for this is not because the models aren’t amazing, and not because they are too thin, it is because a brand is just doing a presentation showing their products only on smaller sizes. I know that VS has bodies in XL, because some plus size models already wore their lingerie for shootings. Furthermore, in this case I do not accept the stupid excuse that they only chose thinner models to save money on the materials. The models are wearing cheap lingerie, except for the super-expensive bra they are presenting at the end. Let’s face it, they don’t want to use curvy models because many viewers out there would still consider them as ‘fat’ or ‘obese’. These comments and flimsy excuses are ridiculous!
WHICH IS WHY WE WANTED TO ASK YOU IF YOU WANT VICTORIA’S SECRET TO ALSO CAST SOME CURVY MODELS NEXT YEAR????
To simplify the descisions, we already chose some models for you. We have put them next to known VS models to let you see that there are no differences, except for their sizes. This is not a comparison, and we don’t want you to disparage the other models. All sizes are beautiful for us and it should be for you too.
Tell us what you think, should VS hire curvy models?
‘Twenty years ago, supermodel Karen Mulder sashayed down a makeshift catwalk at the Plaza Hotel in New York wearing just a pretty white babydoll nightie, all honeyed limbs and glorious blonde hair.
This was a very early Victoria’s Secret lingerie show, which sent shock waves through the industry for its risqué ensembles and generous helpings of glamorous, golden flesh.
The American lingerie brand, then in its infancy, had struck upon a potent formula: send beautiful women down a catwalk in their undies and you’ll attract attention.
Nowadays these are the kinds of outfits the models wear just to travel to the shows; the stuff they actually wear on the catwalk is so revealing you can practically glimpse their internal organs.
There’s something else striking about the pictures from 20 years ago, too. The girls have curves. Not excessive ones, of course —this is still a catwalk, they’re all slim as pins. But they don’t look like they’ve been surviving on nothing but chamomile colonics and tissue paper for the previous three weeks, like the current lot.’
THEN vs NOW
I think the only model who rocked her curves in a wonderful way was Irina Shayk, but that could also be because she is pregnant!
I hope to see a change soon for VS, because it is finally time for you to also listen to your consumers on social media. Sorry Victoria’s Secret if I was ill-mannered, but I really think you should change things within your marketing because you will lose the popularity in the future!
I woke up this morning and the first thing I saw was a video of Jennifer Lopez from her performance at the American Music Awards. I realized that I forgot that the #AMA showcased tonight. But thanks to the news I can now review the […]
