Victoria Secret Angel

Last night, we saw some of the most famous faces in the model community strut their stuff down the Victoria Secret runway.

The annual angels cause a bucket of controversy and cam make the average human feel very inadequate about their own body and looks.

After the Victoria Secret's creative director, Ed Razek said they weren't willing to cast plus-size or transgender models in this year's show – people began to clap back.

Viewers were asked to boycott the show and the event was slammed for the lack of diversity within their model selection.

However, we aren't here to sh*t all over the show, but to point out that you should enjoy it for what it is – pure entertainment.

Do grab your tub of ice cream and goodies to watch the glitter and glam – but DON'T feel guilty.

Why I hear you cry? Well those long-legged, stunning women only represent five percent of the entire human population.

According to the book, The Body Project by Eric Stice, Katherine Presnell, who stated that: "Only 5% of women have the body type (tall, genetically thin, broad-shoulders, narrow hips, long-legged and usually small-breasted) seen in almost all advertising. (When the models have large breasts, they’ve almost always had breast implants.)"

So if they represent your body type and you find them inspirational – fantastic.

But for the rest of the 95 percent of us, stop comparing yourself to the models on the runway, because no matter how much you shame and hate on your body – it won't make it look like theirs.

It's genetically impossible – you won't grow another foot taller or suddenly have abs for days. 

If you find them aspirational for your own workouts and it gives you a little kick to eat healthier, then that's wonderful.

But remember to keep in mind that your body shape is yours, and you should own it – AND you don't have their personal trainers or chefs either.

This standard shown on the runway is completely unattainable for the majority of us, similar to becoming the action heroes in movies or an Olympian. 

The average person doesn't have eight hours in the day to dedicate solely to training – their JOB is to keep their bodies in this sort of shape.

The Victoria Secret spectacle should be seen as frivolous fashion and not something that should define YOUR body or beauty standards. 

Of course we wait with baited breath for the day that a transgender or plus size model rocks the runway and totally owns the show.

But we have no idea of when that glorious time of inclusion and representation will be upon us.

For now, just enjoy the pretty wings and luxurious lingerie for what they are – all while keeping in mind that these women do not have to define how you feel about your body.


We can only imagine how long it must have taken to decide on what to wear if you're one of the lucky ones who have access to the Victoria Secret Fashion Show 2018.

I mean you'd be surrounded by drop-dead gorgeous models, that would make any stunner look like an absolute potato.

However, Louise Cooney and Suzanne Jackson did the impossible and looked beyond glam behind the scenes of the iconic show.

And this is how to steal their style for a fraction of the price.

Louise did us proud and looked divine in a Houndstooth Off-White jacket.

The influencer completed her outfit with a black leather skirt, beautifully curled hair and a natural makeup look.

Now we don't have the cash to splash on the original pieces, so we did you a solid and found a way to recreate her stunning style that won't break the bank.

Hitting ASOS, you can rock the jacket style with a houndstooth blazer for a cool €76.

And pull the look together with a cinched waist, by adding a faux croc clip belt.

River Island has a hun-real mini leather skirt that is a copy-cat style of Louise's look.

If you're into a more low-key style, Suzanne Jackson owned the understated look at the show.

Scaling the streets of NY, the influencer looked totally cool in ripped jeans, a red Victoria Secret jacket and striped shirt.

If you wanna recreate this concrete jungle a la mode, ASOS have look-alike pair of knee ripped jeans for a bargain price.

You can get the exact contrasting striped shirt Sue is wearing from Zara – and it'll jazz up your work looks throughout autumn and winter.

Snap up the FAB red and black coat from Victoria Secret, which we imagine will be such a popular buy this season.

Both Suzanne and Louise looked unbelievable at the rehearsals and we LOVED their style.

They were brushing shoulders with some of the most famous faces in the fashion industry.

The women were even snapped in the background of Kris Jenner's picture from the night out.

They're basically celebrity royalty now.

Nobody can deny the fact that Victoria's Secret Angels are genetically blessed, but they also work very hard to maintain said blessings.

Recently, Taylor Hill spoke to The Times about her life as a super model, and how she manages to look like a goddess all the time. 


Love these angels  WE DID IT

The 20-year-old stunner revealed that she eats "3,000 calories a day before the VS show. Three thousand!"… that is a LOT of food.

The Chicago native also explained that "Victoria's Secret girls are like athletes. We're like Olympians. We're strong".

So the moral of the story here is ladies, dieting is not about cutting calories and starving yourself… it's about eating loads of GOOD food.

Give it time, and you'll look just like Taylor Hill (kind of…)


Last week, we all watched the annual Victoria Secret fashion show, and low key cried because the models are all actual ANGELS. 

Anyway, while we cannot deny that the Victoria Secret models are beautiful, they are all very much the same (in terms of physique). 

And while watching the show is meant to empower women, it can be sort of depressing watching Bella Hadid strut her stuff (someone pass the pizza…)

Celebrating women of all shapes and sizes, the wonderful humans at Buzzfeed decided to re-create their very own Victoria Secret fashion show, using a diverse line-up of models. 

The message behind Buzzfeed's show was for women to be confident in their own body, no matter your size. 

One of the beauties that walked the Buzzfeed runway was plus size model Tess Holiday, who has previously spoken out against Victoria Secret for “perpetuating the image… that you have to look like a certain way to feel beautiful and be sexy.”

The video, which was uploaded to Youtube last week, has already been viewed 1.9 million times.



Let's be honest – as well as lusting after the brand's exquisite underwear, most of us spend the duration of the Victoria's Secret show drooling over the Angels walking in the iconic fashion show.

And while we all accept that these women are paid to look…well… pretty much perfect, it doesn't come as easily to all of them as the rest of us might like to think.

Commenting on this, Victoria's Secret Angel, Bella Hadid, explains: "It’s crazy because I think that when other people look at all of the VS models or all of the girls who are walking, they’re like, ‘They’re not human. They don’t have any insecurities.’"

"But I think every single girl who’s going to be walking probably has an insecurity," she said while chatting about the upcoming show.

Bella told People magazine that she regrets the effort she has put into her pre-show preparation, and she's already missing the curves she lost in order to attain a 'picture-perfect' Angel image.

'I really didn’t mean to lose weight. Like I want boobs. I want my ass back," the 20-year-old model admitted.


NYC for the day

And yet despite appearing to regret her new look, she applauds her determination and willpower to have achieved it in the first place.

"I’ve been eating hard protein every day, and working out for three hours every day. It’s crazy but I think that if you set your mind to something, I think you can succeed."


Woman of business

Gigi's younger sister was also keen to remind the public that despite perhaps overdoing it this time around, she doesn't expect to be criticised for her appearance.

'My weight fluctuates and so does everybody’s and I think that if people are gonna judge, that’s the worst you can possibly do because everybody is different,' she said.

Bella will be walking alongside the likes of Kendall Jenner, Irina Shayk and Karlie Kloss.
