The Official Victoria's Secret Thread

Recommended Posts

Am I the only one who feels like VS PR is the one pushing this 'VS and Kate Upon Make Up' story because they now want to work with her and see what an asset she could be to their company ??

Or VS owns the rights to the picture and wanted to try and capitalize on the success that is Kate so they thought "hey Kate's big atm - and we wanna push this bra a bit more before our new stuff comes out... why not use Kate's image? Hopefully it'll bring in a couple of extra sales"

That capitalism folks...

Kate Upton is furious that Victoria’s Secret has used photos of her from 2011 in a new lingerie catalog after a booker at the brand was once quoted as saying, “We would never use Kate.” A source says Upton is also unhappy that VS never gave her a heads-up they were using the pictures now. The VS photos of Upton in a black bra surfaced yesterday, and buzz spread that the blond babe could be the next Angel, joining Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio. But, “The pictures are from 2011,” sniffed a source. “Kate’s not currently contracted to work with Victoria’s Secret, and they didn’t contact her before they used these images.” The pics of Upton can be found in a new catalog, even though Sophia Neophitou, a model booker for VS, told the New York Times last year: “We would never use Kate . . . 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.” Upton has since become one of the world’s top models gracing the Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue twice and Vogue.

Oh please, it's too early for her to start developing a big head. And not a bright one at that!

lol Kate doesn't need to give permission to VS so they can use pictures they own the rights too, also I highly doubt Kate gives a flying crap about the company and what they do with the images of her. :rofl:Yay more publicity for Miss Kate.

God that story just reeks of being made up by a bunch of slap-happy tumblr facebookers who "own" gossip/celeb blogs and wouldn't know real news if it walked up and bit them in the ass.

It has zilch to do with image rights.

Of course VS has ownership and can use the pics to wipe their butts if they so choose.

The question is surely they must have viable models for their catalogue whom they have not publically dissed right? :shifty:

I mean VS has what 15 models on rota; 6-7 Angels representing them; not to mention the 20 or so models that have walked their runway since 2011

They couldn't use any of them????? :whistle: C'mon now. :cain:

Hahaaa. One has got to respect how Kate has completely taken over.. Hey, they're not that shameless, they could've gone all the way and put her on the cover. Looks like this decade, it's her Karlie and Cara. Yea that's right, VS don't call the shots no more. Their gals take a back seat for the these ladies. Well, technically, Karlie is VS now.

Yeah but Ithink this is part of VS is fauly soley because of the direction they have been going especially with the models and angels they have been choosing. There isn't much of a WOW factor with the brand anymore like there was back in the day with Gisele, Adriana, Ale, Tyra, Heidi, Laetitia, ect , even the commercials and catalogs are now kinda of lackluster.

It's not like VS has ever been a huge career maker. Heidi, Tyra & Marisa have SI to thank just as much as VS for their careers, Lindsay, Behati, Erin and Izabel all had nice runs in high-fashion before doing VS, Doutzen, Gisele, Chanel and Karlie were already big before VS... The only ones they truly "made" are like Alessandra, Selita (and she's not even that successful) and somewhat Miranda, Lily and Candice.

I'm pretty good. Only two misses and they cheated with Greater DC.

This. The only reason why all the people feel urge for their fav model to work for VS is because of the display (lots of pics in lingerie/swim, potential videos, promos, etc.) It´s not because VS is a career maker. How many times have we discussed how most of the real careers of the girls ceased once they started working for VS? They of course can bring attention to a model, if they want. But I would not call that a career-making.

Disagree with you. All VS can do is give you a platform to become a star. they can't directly make you one, that's the job of you and your team. Lily, Candice, Alessandra, Adriana, Selita, Miranda made good use of the fame and public recognition VS has to offer. They also gave Gisele, Heidi and Tyra major pushes. They are not managing their careers for them, they can't do much about a certain model not making it big because they didn't capitalize on what they had on their VS plates. If models like Lindsay and Erin are still where they were from the beginning, that's on their end, not VS's because they have a long list of models to show they can help get you on top. Besides, some of their models are mediocre as shit. they're not going to go far even if they had Kate Upton's team at their disposal.
