Let’s go way back in time to the year I was born when catalog touch-ups were done with lead-based paint and mongoose hair and when Victoria’s Secret truly cared about background ambiance. I didn’t even know Victoria’s Secret was alive in 1979, but it was and Fashionising brought out these pictures from their catalog. Oh those were the days when a panty model’s marabou feather slippers were as fluffy as her crotch bush and her hair was always done up like a fourth-string bridesmaid at a Texas wedding. The VS catalog was much more realistic back then too. Don’t act like you didn’t know that every grown woman in 1979 did needlepoint in her lingerie while hanging out with her girlfriends in her grandma’s “nice” living room. I bet grandma slapped the baby’s breath out of that woman’s hair when she found a stray pube on her oriental rug.
And I know what the model with skin the color of creme brûlée was doing before this shoot. She was the one sunbathing on her driveway for hours and you know she used Vaseline instead of suntan oil.
