Victoria’s Secret is now pulling a Hail Fucking Mary as they have been fighting the tide of declining sales and store closures. Two years ago, former Victoria’s Secret CMO, Ed Razek said that VS would never use “transsexual” models because they sell a “fantasy,” and that they tried to do a TV special starring plus-size models in the past, but nobody had an interest in it, so they kept all the plus-size lingerie in their sister company Lane Bryant. Since then, Ed lost his job, the company swapped CEOs, sales crashed, and they cancelled their big annual fashion show. So now they have to try to lure in the women their asses shunned.
Well folks, it’s the end of an era. Pump out a spritz of sticky sweet Eau So Sexy Dream Angel eau de parfum for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. According to USA Today (fitting), the annual parade of culturally confused be-winged Angels has officially been cancelled this year. The American flag on Leonardo DiCaprio’s yacht is flying at half mast today.
One year ago, Ed Razek – the creator of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show – claimed he didn’t want to send trans models or plus models down the runway, because VS sells a “fantasy.” Ever since then, it’s been bad news for Vicky. Former models (and almost-models) have called out the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which is probably not happening this year, for being outdated, tacky, and having a vary narrow idea when it comes to women. And now there’s some more comments from Bella Hadid that definitely won’t be making the VS publicity team very happy.
The hearts and boners of horny middle-aged dads and preteen boys broke last month when it was reported that the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show might not happen this year. Some models were disappointed. Other models, like Karlie Kloss, were perhaps applauding the rumored decision. And then there’s model Kate Upton, who isn’t really that bothered, because the whole spectacle was starting to get pretty boring to her.
CNBC is reporting that the CEO of Victoria’s Secret’s lingerie division, Jan Singer has resigned and plans to step down after working with VS for two years. It’s only Wednesday, and Victoria’s Secret has already had a stinkier week than my friend that time a bottle of VS Strawberries & Champagne exploded in her car.
Victoria’s Secret found herself in hot water this weekend, after it’s chief marketing officer, one Mr. Ed Razek put his foot in his mouth during an interview he did with Vogue. In the interview he revealed that he wouldn’t cast trans or plus-sized models in his show because that shit is gross! No, he had a different reason, which was just as much of a mess.
