  1. :laugh: No problem. I understand everyone's shock. Had I not known Ginta had been shooting for them recently I doubt I would have been able to tell. La Senza is notorious for taking beautiful models and making them look cartoonish.
  2. Adriana and Chanel have the most rabid fans, Miranda is more relevant in pop culture. Yada, yada, blah, blah.

    Can we move on to more important things? Like will VS ever create a push-up that adds 3 cup-sizes?

    You can't be relevant in pop culture and not have more fans than Chanel.Also, according to forbes, the only models relevant enough to be in their list of most powerful celebs is Kate, Gisele and Adriana,so...You can't be relevant in pop culture and not have more fans than Chanel.Also, according to forbes, the only models relevant enough to be in their list of most powerful celeb is Kate, Gisele and Adriana,so...chrisman46 it is not valid to say twitter is only used by a certain used by certain populations. Twitter is filled with all kinds of ethnicity, race and nationality.Moving on...

    Re-read what I wrote. As I said, it is disproportionately used by certain demographics. For instance, young African Americans and Latinos are overrepresented among twitter users. Chanel and Adriana are widely popular among both groups. Moreover, the amount of Brazilian users on twitter is disproportionately high as well.

  3. This is what happened: They put the names of all their current black models in a pool & they took one to see who was going to be the Token Girl & it happened to be Arlenis.

    That's probably not far from what they really do :whistle: I wouldnt be surprised if we saw Jasmine or Anais in a commercial/campaign before the next show.

    I dont understand why they were in such a hurry to make Chanel an Angel. She was practically signed once her (second or third) 18th birthday. She was clealry very small-framed from the beginning which became obvious whenever she was in campaigns with the others. I kind of feel bad for her being put on the backburner though, as she has recently gotten alittle fuller.

  4. Ugh, there's something that makes me so uncomfortable about hearing that. I get it, 18 is legal and she's a 'woman,' but jesus.... Looking at her and Esti in their underwear makes me feel like the FBI is going to hijack my pc.

    I get the same feeling watching KK in the 2000 or seeing older Brazilian shows with Jeisa, Caroline, and other really young looking models

  5. I think alot of people were expecting the same chemistry among the current angels that was evident particularly with Tyra-Heidi, KK-Gisele, and Adriana-Ale (and then later on Izabel). One big difference, though, is that back then, alot of them worked together outside of VS.

    Regarding the sketch of the outfit that didn't make it, even the face looks tacky :whistle: It could have possibly worked if they didnt rely so much on the medal and were alittle more subtle with the theme.

  6. "The first thing we look for really are healthy bodies (Dahlin some of your girls are so malnourished that they'd fall over in a stiff wind), and energy (Lara Stone, Anja . . . the first two who came to mind in terms of having SUPER DUPER energy levels! On the other side of the coin is Point, Point, Kiss, Wave, Bounce, Hearts, Kiss, Point, Point, Wiggle, Kiss, Point . . . how's that for energy?). A lot of the fashion shows you see girls who can just walk and they're just hangers (Those hangers you speak of are the ones you hire! lololol Gone are the days of the curvy Tyra/Casta/Kate/Cindy bodies. It's a sad day when Doutzen and Adriana are your "bigger girls") with outfits hanging on them, but for Victoria's Secret? It's a show ( VS + Andrew Lloyd Webber think of the possibilities)" :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    :rofl: Exactly. And don't even get me started on their "we only look for girls with good, strong walks" line <_<

  7. Reason why:

    Ed Razek = Super hard-on for blondes

    Monica Mitro = Openly admitted in a video she prefers petite woman + she thinks Karlie Kloss is the next coming of Christ or something. God when Marisa was with VS Monica must of been all kinds of agro.

    If those two had it their way VS would be a blonde trifecta x9000 with one token black girl and Adriana Lima who according to insiders signs a 3-5 year contact every year . . . At the rate Adriana's going she'll be with the company well into her 60's and modeling a line of geriatric lingerie.

    Right. And then lets not forget her ridiculous comments in that New York Times article, which contradict what she's always spewing in casting videos

  8. Josephine + VS = :heart:

    So glad she is doing it, though.. Why hire her now when she went to VSFS castings months ago? She'd be great for the show, imo. :wub:

    They do that alot. Arlenis, Elyse< Katsia Z, Cintia, Jourdan, Gracie, etc all went to castings but didnt get it. Yet, theyve all worked with VS right after. In her case, she could have actually had a scheduling conflict with the H&M show happening the same day.

  9. Another blonde? LE SHOCK! Jesus H Christ, if VS keeps up blonde trifecta they're going to start looking like the poster children for the Aryan Nation.

    :laugh: Well, they seem to really be going for the supposed "All-American" type, which, not surprisingly, is synonymous to Anglo-Saxon/West European features. I will say that I would like the addition of Toni considering her impressive resume before VS, her English skills, and the fact that she doesn't look unhealthy.

  10. hope is not true. I would have prefer to see Lais Riberio or Shanina or Barbara to be the next new angels

    How do you know that they wouldn't be too? Lais is practically an angel already and VS is known for offering contracts to multiple models at the same time. That being said, I would imagine that they aren't trying to sign another model this soon, considering the already high number of contracted girls. I doubt they would make Toni an angel this quickly, but the fact that Modelinia posed the question is interesting given that they have more credibility than most websites (or posters like "lalagirl" :ninja: ) Again, I'm just grateful that they're using girls like Toni, Brejge, and Elyse in commercials/launches.

    Is Toni Garrn the Next Victoria's Secret Angel?

    Next week Lindsay Ellingson and Erin Heatherton will step out at the Victoria’s Secret Soho store in NYC to promote the brand’s “Love Is Heavenly” collection; but they won’t be the only blonde beauties discussing the line and posing for photographs. Newbie Toni Garrn, who only just walked her first Victoria’s Secret runway show this past year, will be joining the Angels for the launch.

    Although Toni wore a pair of wings on the glittery runway back in November, we’re wondering if this press event means she’s next in line to sign a contract and join the likes of Miranda Kerr and Alessandra Ambrosio as an official Victoria’s Secret Angel. She’s certainly got the look!

    Do you think Toni Garrn should be the next Victoria’s Secret Angel?

    Didn't see that coming but like that they are using more non-angels. I'm especially glad that it isn't Karlie :whistle:

  12. Selita kept working for VS the following months after being fired she decided to amicable split with VS, but I'm sure she hasn't done VS in at least two years. She did walk the 2009 & 2010 shows, in 2011 she wasn't casted available for the date of the show i guess.

    Karolina has done zero catalogue work for VS, she walked on 2010 but she decided to skip 2011 because she was working on her german tv show

    Izabel started doing VS again in mid-2009 i think & she was walked every show after 2008 & she has said that she'll do the VSFS for as long as she can.

    Gisele, Tyra, Heidi, Marisa & Rosie are all 100% done with VS since their Angel contracts expired. However it looks like VS doesn't know Rosie left just yet.

    Nice recap :wave:

    Didn't Selita claim to have been busy with "work" during last year's VSFS? I wonder what that supposedly was.

    Additionally, I'm pretty sure Daniela Pestova continued to do launches for VS up until 2003 even after her last show (2001)

  13. ^I recall her doing much the same thing wherever there was the merest hint of a camera backstage at the 2005 VSFS! I took an instant dislike to her 'showboating' then - so, in a way, it's nice to know she's consistent all these years later... :hehe:

    I don't know how "regular" Izabel's work is with them now? Selita and Karolina have walked the show afterwards, haven't they - I don't remember them being in the catalogue since though... post-31360-0-1446080164-78783_thumb.gif Mind you, I'm still not sure Selita's aware she has been let go.

    I can see what you mean. She definitely tries to standout as often as possible. She's been doing this with the hf designers shes been working with as well. Regarding her twitter, she often tweets about working with VS so I'm guessing she routinely shoots for them. I know Selita has done atleast one shoot with them since 2008 but I think that's all. I'm pretty sure Karolina has not done catalogue (she did, however, shoot with H&M instead).

  14. I know what you mean. The prospect of having to cut her hair off is what made Izabel decide not to walk for Givenchy last year, so you would think Candice would have also decline, given that shes actually has VS contract. In any case, i'm curious to see how this pans out. I would love for this to result in the increase of work for VS's other 20 angels :whistle:
