Hello everyone! My name is Brandon and I'm new here. Most of what I remember about VS comes from the mags my Aunt Rosalind used to get when I was little. That was where I first saw Tyra Banks! My Aunt used to tease me about it a lot.

Welcome Brandon!

VS catalogue (sic) and photo quality was superb back in the 90's and 2000's. The Brazilian bombshells of Adriana, Isabeli, Alessandra, Izabel, Ana BB, and Caroline (Francischini and Trentini); although I never cared much for Gisele. The shoots would often try to tell a story, even if it was just one photo for some random lingerie. (Examples below.)

 

Obviously white wall shows the product better, but you can still do shoots with visual variety like Venus does. They have been doing that to a limited extent with the FLL line and a few campaign photos for the socials and as headers on the web site, but virtually all the photos are white wall. With the catalogue, it was easier to group photos in a theme. On the web, unless it's for a brand line like FLL or Intimissimmi, each product has to stand alone and so you get the white wall bleh.

Sort of Off Topic, I just peeked at Venus.com. Not only do they have plus sizes, and good looking models! 
 

Sandra Kubica was the only on I recognized. 

But, their vibe to me is a lot like VS in it’s heyday. 

 
I started buying my bathing suits from there! After VS ended their swimsuit line I held onto this one bikini for a while because it fit me correctly and it's hard for me to find any that actually fit, and because they did bra sizes it was perfect. Well when they came back with swim, hardly ANY larger sizes in the chest. It was terrible...so that's when I discovered Venus.com and even when digging on the site, they do have some cute clothes that fit well. I've made quite a few purchases from them. :)

Doesn't really surprise me, unfortunately.

The devil works hard but Ali works harder :rofl:

 

Excited for this, I never understood why VS and Irina didn't work together more. IIRC she's still the face of Intimissimi but hopefully she'll start shooting lingerie for them soon, god knows VS really needs a good model :ninja:

I care very little about VS anymore as a consumer - they lost my interest with their products over the last few years and with my fav Angels transitioning away, I found myself just following the remaining girls individually more than the brand, but I do think VS is moving in a good direction. The Angel schtick needs to be retired and VS should shift that budget/energy into producing higher value campaigns with girls like Joan and Irina.

It has been a long ass time since I’ve been on here. Like more than 2 years maybe. But I saw the new VS stuff with Irina and Joan and was like ok I’ll pop back in. How is everyone?

 

Ok what’s the status who the angels now?

Welcome back hun :hug: 

 

No one knows, they've been working with a gazillion girls lately and not using the alleged Angels as much :rofl: I think at this point the only ones I'm 100% sure about are Taylor and Romee and that's because I recall VS wishing them a happy birthday recently

Hi! Welcome back! 

 

They also wished Sara HBD this week. 

My closest guess on who still has an Angel contract just based off social media/who still seems to be getting campaigns would be: Grace, Barbara, Jasmine, Sara, Taylor, Romee, Alexina, Stella, Josephine, Lais. 

 

Elsa, Martha, Leomie, and Candice seem to be out. Though Candice seems to have 9 lives with VS and pops up when I least expect it. Elsa is doing FLFL campaigns for them, but she hasn't done anything strictly VS in a while.
