If it's just people hating on a particular model or brand for no reason then obviously that is unfair, but imo a lot of the comments here are just from people who don't like the current direction of VS but do want the brand to succeed. 

 

Thank you, I was a huge fan of VS. And I'm sad where they are now.

VS Angel was a pop culture institution. It was a huge deal.

 

Today, we're not even 100% sure who the Angels are and the general population couldn't give a damn and could not even mention any of the new girls.

Most would still probably name Gisele, Adriana or Ale. lol

I don't know, I find it interesting coming into this thread and seeing everyone speculating about who still is and isn't a VS girl. 😛

I think the reason most people can't name any of the current angels is because there are no more true supermodels in fashion. Back in the day you had Tyra, Gisele, Naomi, Heidi & Adriana working for the brand (Naomi wasn't an angel, but still). These were true supermodels that became household names. They all had that "it" factor that only few possessed; they had huge personalities and that star quality that made them stand out from all the rest.

 

These days, with the rise of Instagram and social media, it's like anyone can become a model. You no longer have to have the "it" factor, you just need a ton of followers. There's no one that stands out anymore because everyone is chasing after likes and trends. The whole concept of the supermodel is dead. Adriana was their last real household name; not even Candice reached her level. The current girls are pretty, but they just don't have the star quality of the previous era supers- which is why they're less known.

 

Like you, I'm also sad for where the brand is now. They really had a great number of years and I used to really enjoy watching the fashion show, but it's just not the same anymore and we have to accept that.

Same energy :PinkCouture2:

 

Also Elsa still hasn't done any VS in months, the more time it passes, the more I think she is done with the brand. I honestly think it would be a thing for everyone and I hope the new owners cut the Angel line up a lot, get a fresh start, focus on five to eight girls and build your brand again. At this point a line up of Leomie, Romee, Taylor, Lorena D, Alexina, Barbara, Grace and Stella would be something realistic IMO and I think it could work really well for them, you have the whole #woke thing covered without going too extreme. 

The thing is, is I would rather see VS improve itself rather than the company just end. People's jobs are at stake in this, and I just simply cant call for a company to just simply end itself.  I could care less about the executives. VS was once a pop culture phenom, and its a shame that has to go in this state.

I just want VS to fix itself, but I know it'll never be like it was. I really enjoyed looking at old VS pictures and watching videos of events and interviews with the Angels, but we don't have those now and that's sad.

I agree as well. We can’t have the golden age of VS anymore, but we can have a better than current age. 
 I would love to see them right their ship and concentrate on better quality items, better quality photo shoots and make the Angels great again.:MLA:

Yes, I have noticed their products have been lacking. I used to love their PINK yoga pants, and they are all plain and ugly now. I loved the color-blocking ones they had a few years ago. They also used to be a thicker and more durable material, but now they are just blah.

 

And the photoshoots now are so plain! I know I keep saying how boring they are, but if you look back at the older shoots, they had so much life to them that it actually brought the lingerie/clothes to life. And the models they used were much better than these random models they have now. I wish they would spotlight the Angels more as well. I don't know what the point in having Angels is if they aren't going to use them. I wish they still sent them to interviews and things like that. The brand is so boring, but I do feel like they could fix it if they try. But maybe this plain approach is what they're going for? Like they want minimalism and nothing fancy? IDK.

They called her ugly too I aint forget :no: 

no, they didn't call her ugly. They (aka Sophia Neophitou) said:

Way back in early 2012, Victoria's Secret's casting director Sophia Neophitou majorly snubbed then-rising star Kate Upton, telling the New York Times that VS would "never use her. She’s like a footballer’s wife, with the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy."


and let's be honest: Kate Upton has a body that looks kinda like she's letting herself go lately. When she first worked with SI, she had an amazing body but a year later she started to gain weight and the proportions look off. Still a nice body but when you make a living out of it, you have to have an amazing body.

Is it me or has VS become WAY overpriced???

I think they're overpriced too now. I was shocked when I went into the PINK side of my VS store to buy some yoga pants. Not only were they more expensive, they weren't nearly as cute as they used to be. They were plain and the material felt less durable and strong. I could buy the same plain pants at any department store for half the price. And I bet you they would last longer. 

Some of the bras are ok though. I got a cute red one and a pretty pink one but they were like $64. I thought they used to be a lot cheaper, but maybe I'm just remembering wrong. I don't really buy much VS anymore because of the prices going up and quality going down.

It's still dumb as hell to put down another woman's looks. Because most women who are potential customers of VS don't look like Candice or Adriana. And even Candice needs her bra to be filled in when she does shoot for them.

 

And btw.

That would maybe even make a bit of sense (no matter how rude it was) if VS Angels have never went under the knife. Which is hilarious. Gisele had a nose job, Alessandra had her ears fixed and a boobjob, Adriana had a boobjob, Josephine had a boobjob, Lais had a boobjob...and that's just off the top of my head.

And this is without even mentioning botox that some of them use.

So VS Angels definitely "purchase" their bodies, so shaming  Upton makes no damn sense.

 

If they were a professional group they would've said something like: "We really like Miss Upton and congratulate her on her success, however at this moment we are not working together. In the future things may change. Regardless we wish her nothing but the best wishes in her career."  Done. That's how you handle those things.

i agree about Kate 100% but Lais boobs are real

 

i'm not even sure about Jo anymore, without push up her boobs look small..or she had a very light boobjob, still odd tho

jo.png

I think she got a boobjob but not too much. She often wears push up and said she loves those so they look a lot bigger 

This pic is revealing they are a fine size.

 

Kate and Lais are 100 real.

Kelly has fake boobs imo.
