Every white wall pics.. 

Oh yeah, I see what you mean. There are a few models that make white wall look good like Barbara, Josephine, Grace and Jasmine....but overall, I wish they would cut back on them. At least the Swim pictures have been pretty cool and interesting. I have always liked Swim the best out of any line of VS. I'm excited to see more. 

 

@CandleVixen thanks for the reply! She is cute, but I''m not a big fan of short hair, as I have long hair, and like seeing models with healthy, shiny long hair because it kicks me into gear into trying to get my hair too look good. I really like some of the shots, but that's because I like Cameron Hammond as a photographer. I miss when they used Russell though. He seemed so sweet, respectful and happy. I wonder how he's doing? I hope if he is still working and not retired, that he has a good career. I think he shot with Miranda Kerr recently, so that's lovely!

Talking about VS hate...

 

I just noticed they deleted a HUGE ammount of their behind the scenes videos on their own channel, just the disdain for their own fans...

Or maybe they lost the rights. 

 

Like in this video Gisele's and Daniela's faces are never shown so that VS doesn't have to pay:

 

And re: white wall, they probably do less location shoots because of COVID-19 travel restrictions.

Yeah I don't think VS can use the image of a model for years and years with no end, Gisele and others had been cut from footage multiple times, in videos where they would 100% be if VS had the rights to it. I think the most clear example we've gotten was when they had the Love Rocks campaign ready to go, Marisa was going to be the face of it and then she left VS and they had to scratch all the material they had and we ended up getting some B-List actress in the launch :rofl: that was a pretty overnight change that I doubt VS wanted.

Georgia Fowler looks goood in her picture. I always like her. she would had been a better option as an angel than some they currently have. 

my perfect line up would had been Taylor, Sara, Shanina, Georgia, Bregje, Vita, Palvin

@Clauds

The video is just a behind the scenes of a 2015 lingerie campaign, featuring Behati, Lily, Candice, Taylor and Sara. They have plenty of videos featuring those models.

I’m pretty sure VS retains the rights forever.  This is why there are VS stores still with photos of ex-angels.  The issue is that they no longer want to associate with a girl that has left the brand.  But the contracts the girls sign usually would entail that their image is for VS to do with as they please since that is the client that commissions the shoots.

I don't think they retain them forever, there's certain angels VS wiped out of the stores because they don't have the rights to use their image anymore, my guess is that this is the case with mostly big names like Gisele and girls in the same tier, I remember for years VS did not show any footage with Gisele's face in the show... IIRC a member from here used to work with VS and mentioned it once as the reason why overnight they had to take all the pictures from some model out of the stores, but this thread is wayyyy too long and I ain't going back 2000 pages :rofl:

 

Either way, maybe VS is deleting footage as part of their new branding? It's still weird they'd do that but they really seem desperate for a new image.

My VS store has tons of pictures of ex-Angels: Miranda, Doutzen, Alessandra...it's so weird, but I guess most customers won't realize that is it strange if they don't follow VS.

This is true for every VS Store front I've seen in the Northeast US.  There are tons of VS stores here.  It's like it's still 2008.  Erin, Candice, Miranda, Doutzen Alessandra etc. are still being used, mixed with the "new angels" (which aren't the case anymore).  Or it's just the new angels.  Or it's the current Woke lineup.  OR mixed together...

 

I can understand why they'd not want to remove the 2005 crew because this group defined the brand.

That's interesting that all the stores look like this, though I'm not surprised since why would they change one and not the others?

 

Good point about the 2005 ones being the group that defined the brand. I know people who still associate them, especially Adrianna, with VS, even though they are not fans like we are to know she is no longer with the brand.

So disappointed in this video and the whole Swim 2021 campaign. I don't know who the hell these models are except for Taylor. The whole "brand" seems to be running on fumes.

i don´t like it either, also the video has something that reminds me of the Solid & Striped Swim campaign that Elsa and Georgia did a few time ago, but a worse version idk
