Also, I find it so interesting that despite Gisele being one of the biggest angels, she rarely wore wings. I'm sure this was her decision obviously. But I'm sure VS must have been somewhat disappointed since the wings were so iconic. I always thought that maybe she didn't open the 2003 show because they like to open the show with wings to draw attention.

During her time as an Angel, Gisele didn't wear wings only in one show (the 2003 show). Only one show doesn't qualify as "rarely".

here's Taylor herself talking about her favourite music:

 

Loved her musical taste :chicken: 

 

(But she fell for the biggest lie in the universe: "I love all kinds of music" :rofl: )

Fleetwood Mac is ok, not anything I listen to, but it's better than other stuff at least. 

 

I recommend you Fleetwood Mac's first era, with Peter Green. That is the real Fleetwood Mac for me, when they played Blues Rock.

Candice, Martha, Elsa and Behati are all gone. They haven't been in anything VS related all of 2020 (Behati since late 2018), and they have also been left out of all the quarantine and Mother's Day posts, there is no reason whatsoever why these women would be cut from cheap, home made videos, particularly Candice and Behati being left out of the Mother's Day stuff is odd if they are still under contract. VS never makes announcements when a girl leaves, it was a rarity we got an announcement for Adriana but considering she was the public's favorite angel it makes sense just like it did with Tyra, Alessandra didn't get one, she got like 0.05 seconds mention in the show, but there was no announcement for Rosie, Karolina, Marisa, Lily, Lindsay, Chanel, Jac or Kate, not even Heidi Klum or Gisele got a proper announcement, the only other exits that were addressed recently were Doutzen and Karlie who got a instagram post from Ed Razek, there was nothing official from VS.

 

I'm actually wondering if Candice will expand her line into lingerie as well as the swimsuits seem to be selling pretty well.

That Martha, Candice and Elsa are gone is based on assumptions though, no? There is not a single source to back that claim up like with Behati's case with the pagesix-article.

 

On another note, I don't think the VS show will ever come back. If it does, then it would become an all-sizes-pity-party and wouldn't be the VS show that we have all become acquainted to. VS is infamous to be hesitant to call a spade a spade. They have done that to Marisa and Miranda. When they left, they claimed they would continue working with them and it never happened (as expected). So their official announcement about creating new dynamic content means "no VS show anymore".

I wonder if VS is going to close the store near where I live. I still like going in there sometimes, even if I don't always buy stuff.  I feel bad for the store employees, too.

It's not just assumptions is pretty much confirmed, for Martha VS skipped her birthday which they never do, means she is done. As for Elsa, she has been working with other lingerie brands which we all know is the #1 restriction with a VS contract, so she's either done or VS has stepped to a new low of now allowing the girls to work with their competition. And Candice was completely left out of the Mother's Day campaigns and posts, which she was always in before like all the girls who have children, this year it was just Lais and then the rest of the girls with their moms, heck even non-Angels were included. To that add the fact that none of then have shot for VS in the whole of 2020 and even late 2019. So if you go by social media and pure logic, they are all gone and VS just doesn't care enough to make an announcement and neither do the girls and I doubt we'll get one.

 

As for the show, I agree, it ain't coming back.

Elsa did that For Love & Lemons X VS campaign, but VS IG seems they don't promote that pics.

Since there's nothing really going on...would this be considered modeling/promoting underwear for another brand? Or more sportswear?

Not really sure what it means. But if sis is doing TH lingerie and VS it means she's either gone from VS (when was she announced as an angel again? It could be that one year contracts for the new girls were up and hers wasn't renovated idk) orrrr the brand has sunk to a new low and they don't even have a non-compete clause anymore which like damn, who are you, Forever 21? :ninja:

I wouldn’t be surprised if they did one year “trial” contracts with the new girls, and given how outspoken Leomie was about the show being cancelled, she might have sealed her fate when it came to renewal time. :idk: 
 

I looked it up and they were announced in April 2019, so the year mark just passed. (Also they could have signed sooner than that, who knows.)

Congratulations to them!!

 

She's one of my least favorite Angels; I don't care for her body and she sounded robotic promoting VS stuff. Her face is gorgeous, though.  I liked her HF work.  She was not right for VS, but she was definitely right for runway and editorials. 

 

Her and Erin were my two least favorite spokesmodels for VS, although I loved Erin as an Angel because I think she perfectly fit the part physically. She also sounded robotic when she spoke on behalf of VS, like she just memorized when she was supposed to say without any emotion or enthusiasm. 

 

Lily and Behati were my favorite in terms of speaking/promoting VS. They were also two of my all time favorite Angels. 

 

If anyone cares to answer, who were your favorite and least favorite Angels when it came to being a spokesmodel?

^ Good question! I think the key to being a good spokesmodel is not only having the right look, but also having the right personality. Confidence is key.

 

My favorite VS spokesmodel, by far, was Tyra. She had one of the best personalities ever for a VS model in my opinion; she was the perfect combination of sexiness & confidence with a fun, playful outgoing-ness at the same time. That's why people were so drawn to her and the VS brand back in the day. She was absolutely perfect for a brand like VS and helped put in on the map. I also loved Adriana as a spokesmodel because of the exoticness of her look/persona; she just oozed sultriness and womanly confidence which was exactly what the VS brand was originally about. She also had a quirky, goofy side which I loved as well. Heidi, Gisele and Behati also had really fun personalities, which I think made them great spokesmodels as well.

 

Out of all the current & new angels, I think Barbara is the most promising as a spokesmodel because she definitely seems to have that fun, outgoing personality that draws people in (even if the brand is struggling these days).

 

My least favorite spokesmodel (in terms of speaking & promoting) was definitely Candice because, like I've said before, she just didn't have the personality for VS. She didn't have the same confidence or outgoing-ness that Tyra and them did. I always thought she had the personality of a shy, awkward schoolgirl when she would speak, not a confident self-assured VS model. Of course she had a great body for VS, but beyond that she's quite boring as a person, and that doesn't make for a good spokesmodel for any brand.

 

I also didn't care for Erin, Lily, Karlie and Selita as spokesmodels, as well as most of the current angels, because like Candice I just found them quite boring. Idk. I'm all about personality I guess. Having a good personality + confidence is the key to being a good spokesmodel/representative for a brand because it's how you draw people in and make them wanna buy the product & support the brand. If you don't have that, then people won't be as interested in the brand as a whole. 

 

Edit: Just found this old video of Gisele promoting a VS fragrance for men. This is the kind of confidence and outgoing personality that makes for a great spokesmodel.
