Miranda Kerr fired from Victoria’s Secret because of her ‘difficult reputation’

This story is kind of funny and kind of weird. Like, it would be fun to laugh at Miranda Kerr for getting pushed out of a lucrative and high profile gig because she does nothing for the brand, but I’m not sure that’s what this is. Us Weekly reports that Miranda has been pushed out of Victoria’s Secret – she will no longer be an Angel. She’s not being out-right fired, her contract isn’t being renewed this year. So… what’s happening?

This Angel’s getting her wings clipped! Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr will no longer be linked to the sexy lingerie brand, industry insiders tell Us.

According to multiple sources, Kerr, 30, is being let go as a Victoria’s Secret Angel after her $1 million, three-year contract “was not renewed.” The reason for the sudden split? One source tells Us that Kerr “has a difficult reputation.”

The Australian beauty, who is mother to 2-year-old Flynn with husband Orlando Bloom, 36, is also reportedly “not a big seller for VS,” while other Angels, like Candice Swanepoel and Alessandra Ambrosio, are.

“They can still use her for catalogue, where she will get a day rate, but she doesn’t have to be an Angel to do that,” the first source said.

Executives from Victoria’s Secret wouldn’t deny that the contract has not been renewed, but chief marketing officer Ed Razek tells Us that he has already invited Kerr to walk in the 2013 show.

“We have no plans to stop working with her,” he said.

[From Us Weekly]

Huh. Does Miranda have a “difficult reputation” or does Victoria’s Secret just hate that she’s A) not blonde, B) 30 years old, C) a mother, and D) expensive compared to the younger, newer models who will work cheaper? It could be a combination of all of those things, really. It could be all of that plus Miranda doesn’t do much for the brand, although if we’re going to make that argument, I doubt Alessandra Ambrosio does much for the brand. Or Erin Heatherton. Or Lily Aldridge.

Which brings me to my point… I stopped buying lingerie at Victoria’s Secret years ago. I stopped the second I realized that my bust had increased from a D to DD (and even then, I think I’m wearing the wrong cup size) and I realized how difficult it would be to find cute stuff in my size. I’m just putting that out there – I think Victoria’s Secret is pretty cheesy but I would probably still be buying some stuff from Vicky’s if I thought I could fit in it. If I was a petite woman with B cups? Sure. I would buy from Vicky’s. But it’s absurd to say that women are buying from Vicky’s because Miranda Kerr tells them to, or Lily Aldridge or whatever.

    maybe she was difficult during contract negotiations? I don’t understand how they decide who’s lucrative.

    • andrea says:

      Yeah, this sounds like a contract renegotiation issue to me, but her rep might also have something to do with it.

      Apart from apparently being difficult in general, I’ve also read about her being difficult for most of the other VS angels to work with. That’s mainly because she supposedly doesn’t care if a man’s attached when she sleeps with him, even if he’s attached to one of her close model co-workers.

      Like Zig says further down in the comments, maybe she finally got caught sleeping with someone whose vindictive significant other has some juice in the industry.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      She probably wanted more money. $1M for 3 years of work isn’t that much at all! She has been doing a lot of work recently, so maybe if they want her time they will have to pay more.

    • DGO says:

      She just got fired from another gig (David Jones) and she’s been talked about negatively in the press of late (DiCaprio, Bieber) so they probably figured she wasn’t good for the brand image.

      • The Wizz says:

        I don’t recall her getting fired from David Jones, more like quit. David Jones would be MAD to fire her, she did so much for their brand.

      • Yvette says:

        No, she was fired, I think before her contract was even up because of demands she made including shooting the catalogue in the US. Apparently backstage she had her own private tent that people could only access if given her permission, I think David Jones realised dealing with her ‘tude wasn’t worth it!

      • Littlewood says:

        Yes she was fired. Nine months before the contract was due to finish. David Jones mentioned they did extensive market research and found out she was not all that well liked with their customers and not worth the money. That and her Diva behavior, seems the lady forgot she’s a model and that there are thousands of younger, prettier, nicer and harder working girls ready to take her place. She’s no Naomi Campbell or Kate Moss!

  2. Zoid says:

    I’ve got to say it- I adore lacy, bejeweled, sparkly things. So I’m all over VS. Also, they makes my boobs look lovely and are much more comfortable than the only other brands I can afford (Target, Kohls, random Internet sites…)

    Meh, I wasn’t a fan of Kerrs baby face anyway.

  3. Jen says:

    Aren’t all of those VS models moms? Alessandra Ambrosio’s got a couple, and so does the brunette who’s married to that cross-eyed Eastern European dude. Heidi Klum has a bunch of kids, too. And most of them aren’t blonde and are at least 30, aren’t they? So, I’m not sure that the she’s a mother/not blonde/30 holds up as a valid reason they’d let her go. Which means, then, that I’m much more likely to believe she’s a pain in the ass and THAT is why they fired her.

    • Amelia says:

      I heard a couple of reports that (apparently) Kerr is a pain in the ass to work with. I can’t remember where I read it, but supposedly she demanded that she was only photographed on her ‘good side’ and with full flash (so there weren’t any shadows…?)
      Honestly, I can’t completely remember, so make of this what you will :)
      I will say that I laughed at the headline. Mwahaha

      • Littlewood says:

        That was David Jones, they fired her last month 9 months before her contract finished because she demanded double the money for half the work. Unfortunately they did market research and found she wasn’t worth it. She was known as Flash Nazi by the photographers at their last event because she demanded to only be shot with a direct Flash. Sounds like she tried to play the same game with VS and they both backfired! Couldn’t happen to a nicer person, tbh.

      • Amber says:

        Yeah, lets not spin this like VS did her a wrong. As others are pointing out most of the other Angels are her age or older and many have children. Ambrosio (who I’m not a fan of), a brunette, works her butt off for VS. Kerr does have a rep for being difficult and annoying. It’s been well kept since the media in the UK and US didn’t become interested in her until she got pregnant. She’s NOT well-liked in the industry (NYMag ran an infamous profile on her and The Vine wrote a piece about that), she doesn’t get many repeat gigs. She was “let go” from her only other major job w/ David Jones for being a diva not worth what she demands. She was always valued by VS as a tabloid mainstay. When she wore the Bling Bra, they showed Bloom giving her a standing ovation before they showed her and she did daily pap walks w/ her son for weeks leading up to it. If she was so popular, VS would use her more in actual ads and commercials, which they never do. Nor, as the article states, does Kerr do much for VS and she isn’t friendly or supportive towards the other models like Ambrosio is. But there’s a reason for the latter; being that the other VSAs can’t stand her. The animosity is worst b/w her and Candice, who has totally taken over VS. There’s no love lost b/w Kerr and Lima either and Lima has a rep for being the nicest person you could hope to meet. Candice and Behati are BFFs. Lima and Doutzen are very close. Erin is godmother to Lily’s daughter for crying out loud. None of the Angels even tweeted Miranda get wells after her “car accident”.

      • Amelia says:

        I just googled that NY mag piece (178 Minutes with Miranda Kerr) – to say that she’s an airhead would be generous.

      • andrea says:

        Amber and Amelia, I just read the article as well. Hahahahahahahaha! Awwww. Sorry, it’s so silly it’s turned me momentarily monosyllabic. “Treasure Yourself” is too precious. But for some reason, I can’t help but wonder if she thinks she’s the rose or the sunflower.

    • Lucy says:

      Yeah I think you’re right, she always seemed kind of pretentious to me, not sure why she just did

  4. Kayla says:

    What does that mean? Yeah, I think she’s more expensive than they can justify – and people know Alessandra and Adriana more.

  5. Lauren says:

    *Singing* Ding dong the witch is dead…the bitch is deeeaad! Huzzah!!! *finshes singing, takes a bow and exits stage left*

  6. V4Real says:

    Wow Kaiser D to DD.

    Maybe Miranda could no longer measure up…haha; I kill myself.

  7. Red32 says:

    She’s not the only mother or brunette so I doubt that’s it.

  8. lori says:

    Leo does more for sales than any of those girls

  9. L says:

    Yea, if you are over a D cup VS is not for you. I’d even argue a C, as once I went to a D it was impossible to find cute stuff there.

    Their stuff is overpriced poor quality stuff anyway.

    • Miss M says:


      ps: off-topic–> Are we going to talk about “Ready for love’?

      • CreamSoda says:

        Yes please, let’s talk about how much that show sucked. I can’t decide if hearing grown women talk about wanting their fairytale happy ending is annoying or embarassing. Maybe both.

        More on topic, VS lost its appeal for me years ago but I’m not really sure why.

      • Miss M says:

        @creamsoda: Thank you very much! I thought they also sounded desperate too. Crying over a guy you just met on a reality show? really??!! As I was watching, I was like…if I have to do this, I will be single forever. Hey, but it was a bit entertaining.

    • DeltaJuliet says:

      I don’t know though. I just got measured for bra size (I had been wearing 34 C and they were WAY too small). Turns out I’m a 34 DDD (yeah, I was way off lol). They had to special order my bra but I’m very happy with it and they were really very helpful in the store.

    • Amelia says:

      There’s only the one VS store here in London, but I don’t think I’ll be going back. Loads of the bras were really scratchy.
      Since we’re on the topic of underwear, if anyone’s looking for horribly pricey but amazing quality stuff, can I recommend Mimi Holliday? The bf got me a set for Valentine’s Day and I am in LOVE. Some of the stuff isn’t brilliant if you’re a more generously endowed gal, but they do some lovely D and over bras.
      Shame all I’ve got in my bank account is a couple of lonely looking moths *sigh*

  10. OhDear says:

    Think the company would overlook a “difficult reputation” if she helped generate enough income. But I think this is more of a normal business decision than anything Kerr did wrong. Maybe her compensation demands were higher than what VS was willing to give?

    On another note, VS underwear is virtually unwearable now (badly made).

    • Me Three says:

      Yep…scratchy in all the wrong places! They went cheap years ago. No quality control. Only people I know who still shop there are teens thru my mid 20 something friends. The rest of us have moved on.

      Funny story: a friend with lovely medium sized boobs loves VS. Only wears their bras. She’s been wearing their D and, squeezing into their C cups for years. Not a good look…believe me! Another friend convinced her to go to an actual lingerie store where they measured her. DDD. She has been pouring herself into these tiny bras with spill over everywhere for years. She’s now in love with all her new bras AND everyone thinks she’s lost weight because her bras fit.

    • janie says:

      I actually have pretty small boobs, and Victoria’s Secret measured me at 32B for a very long time. The bras I bought were always riding up and sliding around, so I went to a real lingerie store to get measured. Turns out I’m a 28D, which they don’t even sell.

      My point is, Victoria’s Secret caters to a very small demographic, but continues to sell the wrong sizes to women on the daily. Boooo.

  11. Barbara says:

    I don’t know how old Alessandra is, but she’s a mother of two and she will continue to be an angel, so the mother argument doesn’t work, and probably neither the age as I think Alessandra is 31 (just checked).
    Also she isn’t as blond as other girls, so even the blond argument isn’t that strong in Alessandra’s case. Also isn’t Adriana Lima one of the angels that is also a mother of two, brunette and not that young anymore (also 31)?
    It might be something concerning Miranda – not sure if because she’s difficult or not – but I don’t see it being a general thing.

  12. Kyle says:

    She doesn’t have real model face, child face is big no no. BTW she never was runway, high fashion model.

  13. Georgina says:

    Several years ago when Marisa Miller’s contract wasn’t renewed, didn’t VS say they would still work with her? I seem to remember that. I think the invite to walk in the next show is for saving face only. Kerr can say she was invited but too busy with other projects to attend.

  14. ZigZagZoey says:

    Seriously? She sleeps with everyone doesn’t she? She slept with someone she shouldn’t have, that’s what I think it’s about.

    I’m quite happy to be seeing less of her.

  15. Val says:

    I actually love their bras. I have two that I bought about 4 years ago and although they’re kind of stretched out from use I could still use them.

    • Tig says:

      Agreed w/ u Val- I don’t go in there for “sex in the afternoon” stuff. I find the sales folks to be most helpful, and my experience has been the bras hold up well. Of course, that may have changed since haven’t bought one in a while.

      OT- has anyone tried Soma for bras?

  16. dorothy says:

    Personally I’m glad. She has become so over-expossed in the last year. Tired of seeing her everywhere.

  17. Tasha says:

    Wasn’t she also fired from David Jones for being difficult? so I doubt her being fired from VS has anything to do a,b,c or d.

    If this story is true then it seems like her fame went to her head.

  18. Layale says:

    She does have a difficult reputation for cheating on Orlando.

  19. Relli says:

    I worked at VS for years and even then in a 36C they didn’t carry every line in my size. Once i had my kid my loved and cherished VS bras didn’t cut the mustard anymore and I moved on Wacoal and significantly went up in size (but so much more comfortable and supportive). I still bought panties from VS but the last bunch i bought were horrible, cheap and unraveled after less than a year. I still love their nighties and comfy clothes though.

  20. Lee says:

    I doubt being an older brunette is the reason. Adriana and Ale are older than her and they all have kids. I noticed in interviews that Adriana & Ale really promoted VS products even in other event outside VS promo. They rarely endorse other brands in their interview. Miranda, on the other hand, seems to use VS event to promote her own products. Perhaps that’s part of the reasons.

  21. Littlewood says:

    Of course she has a difficult reputation! First there is the sleeping around; there have been rumors for the past year of so that she was sleeping with one of their photographers (people tend to think its Chris Colls because he used to travel with her and does a lot of her Kora photoshoots, which still haven’t been released). Then there is the hypocrisy; she’s selling both her organic skincare line and a shampoo full of chemicals, was both the face of Qantas Airlines and Earth Hour at the same time etc etc nobody can relate to that. Third she’s known as a diva who wanted photographers to shoot her a certain way for example. And fourth every time VS put her on a talk-show to talk about VS, she spend the time flirting with every men she saw and selling Kora while putting on this weird little child’s voice. Good riddance, I’ll say.

  22. Jenna says:

    I’m lying to myself at the moment with a DD but I still find some cute stuff at VS. But one of the VS spokespeople did just make a statement/denial about this.

  23. ViktoryGin says:

    I detest VS, personally. Their products are gaudy and lacking in good quality. They have systemsticallt marginalized normal-bodied women, and by normal I don’t mean fat. It’s become plainly obvious that they are selling the models more than the merchandise and have become adept at making women feel like crap about themselves while shaking them down for their money. I refuse.

  24. NEENAZEE says:

    I don’t see this as a big deal… all businesses (especially ones that use celebrities as spokespeople) need to keep changing their public image and advertising concepts. If VS rotates new faces in and out every few years it keeps everyone coming back, right? I’m sure both VS and Kerr did very well during the three years they worked together… and I’m sure she already has other offers on the table.

    Feels very similar to the situation with the judges on Idol, X-Factor, Voice, etc. Some people like the gig, some don’t, others want to move on… to each his own. Not everything has to be a public dressing down as the tabloids would have us believe.

  25. LucyS says:

    I used to work for VS. Years ago they had someone’s face on the price tags for a certain line. (I forget who; I want to say Heidi, but I don’t think it was) Once her business relationship ended (abruptly), we had to go through all the bras in the store in that line and TEAR OFF the freaking tags with her face on them. Ridiculous.

    Some of the models really buy into the company as a brand and sell the hell out of it. Some don’t. The ones who would come to the stores for promotions – you could tell who was into it and who was there solely for the paycheck.

    As for the quality of their stuff, it’s gone way downhill over the years. About when they introduced Pink and started marketing to college aged girls. I don’t buy much from them anymore – but I will say this about them -they train the hell out of their sales staff (at least they used to). I think some of their standards in terms of dress code have dropped lately. I went in the other day and half the sales staff looked like they were coming off a bender and had messy hair and ill fitting clothes. We used to have to wear suits and look professional. It’s very different now. Not sure it’s for the better.

  26. LaBollox says:

    Kerr is probably the most despised model in Australia and yes, she is an utter pain in the ass to work with.

    I really hope that VS have ditched her.

    • Littlewood says:

      That’s what I hear a lot, where there’s smoke there’s fire! Lipton has announced a new Ambassador, Samantha Thavasa is now using Taylor Momsen. Seems that the New York Magazine was right when they released an article years ago about her being nothing more than a production and not well liked in the fashion industry.

      • SydneySpy says:

        I have a highly-placed friend in the Sydney fashion industry. She says Miranda is a royal pain in the arse, too. The girl is apparently very demanding – the full flash, her own, private “everything”, etc. This certainly does not sit well with we Aussies, cuz we are a laid-back lot and see these demanding princesses as pretentious little bitches. As my friend put it: “Miranda really got above her station”. Yes, it was huge news here when she was fired from David Jones, although no specific reason was given, only that contract negotiations had broken down due to her demands..

        I’ve always thought she was over-rated, and detest how she always plays the “sweet little country girl” character. However, it’s come as a huge surprise that she supposedly sleeps around!!! Is this true? My friend has never discussed Miranda’s personal shenanigans, and just dislikes how she conducts herself in the professional arena. Details please!

  27. brasileira says:

    ” It could be all of that plus Miranda doesn’t do much for the brand, although if we’re going to make that argument, I doubt Alessandra Ambrosio does much for the brand.”

    If you’re going to make that argument, Alessandra Ambrosio is also over 30 AND a mother of two. I think we’re left with the “difficult” part then. Although, I don’t buy it either.

  28. Rell says:

    This basically means that they are slowly ending all contact with her. It is rare that a vs angel gets down graded, they usually retire an angel even when they limit their work with vs towards the end look at Tyra and Heidi. Tells me that don’t consider her a “supermodel” or popular with the public.

  29. Holden says:

    Hasn’t she been working for them since she was like, 21? Time to rotate in some fresh faces, maybe.

  30. megan says:

    The bras I’ve purchased from VS have stretched out very quickly, mainly the straps. I’m a not-perky 34DD so my bras have to put in work. Brands like Wacoal & Le Mystere work much better for my situation. However I will cut a bitch to get to the last pair of their yoga leggings in my size. Those things are AWESOME.

  31. Madpoe says:

    I can’t buy Victoria Secrets, their materials are too small to hide my secrets.
    Kinda feel bad for guys who’ll think ALL women wear these pricey band-aids.

  32. BRE says:

    Kaiser, you should get a breast reduction. I got one when I was 20 and I’m 36 now and still do not regret it.

    • Pia says:

      She never said she didn’t like them the size they are. Glad the whole thing worked for you, but I love my 34DDs and surgery isn’t exactly a simple fix for a variety of reasons. I’d rather have back pain than all the risks and costs of surgery, personally.

  33. lflips says:

    I don’t buy from VS because their products are overpriced garbage not because Miranda Kerr isn’t doing her bit.

  34. Faye says:

    I suspect it’s mostly men who care about the Victoria’s Secret angels.

    As a woman, even someone who is small enough to fit into their stuff, I won’t buy it. It seems overpriced for the low quality that it is. I’d rather buy more expensive but better-constructed bras from other places (I like Wacoal for everyday, La Perla for the occasional “nice” things).

  35. kristine says:

    I’m DD as well and cant find nice bras at VS. I think shes pretty.

  36. Bread and Circuses says:

    Once upon a time, Victoria’s Secret used to make the best panties. They were pricey, but they were made of thick cotton and were super-cute and super-comfy. You were getting value for your money.

    Now, I just don’t think you are. The panties still look nice, but the cotton is thinner and they cost the same inflated price. If I’m just looking for great-to-wear skivvies, I may as well go for the cheaper but still well-constructed brands like Jockey. They aren’t cute, and the cotton is average, but the price is fair for that.

  37. BGirl81 says:

    Cosign Kaiser! If you are above a C cup, forget about it. I attempted to purchase a strapless from there last summer and DEAR JESUS, they did not have one in approximately 9 million square feet of store that (a) was not comprised of six inches of padding (CAN WE AGREE NOT TO DO THIS IN THE D CUP RANGE?!) and (b) actually accomplished the goal of reasonably covering a bosom. I can’t even.

  38. Lem says:

    2 comments: first my itty bitties have never fit right in a vs bra, so it is not just all ya’ll and those glorious D’s.
    2nd I don’t quite get the runway show. Never have I thought “ohhh hot” but I have thought how unpleasant for sex (which is the point non)

    • BGirl81 says:

      Getting poked in the eye with a wing made out of feathers and chicken wire mid-shtup is not Very Sexy – agreed! :)

    • WhitneyD says:

      Same here! Years and years ago I had 2 or 3 A-cup bras from VS. They weren’t a perfect fit (a bit too big), but they were serviceable. Then they seemed to resize everything and their A-cups were more like B-cups.

      Now I mostly wear Wonderbra, their smaller A-cups fit really well.

      These days I won’t even walk into the stores after reading an article where they interviewed several former VS employees. They talked about putting returned, WORN panties right back on the racks. Soooo gross.

      • SydneySpy says:

        Er, yuck! In Australia this is not allowed. If you try on a swimming cozzie it is understood and expected that you wear your knickers while doing so. As for undies, I don’t know anyone who tries them on before buying. Everyone I know seems to have their favourites and knows their size, so just pay for them. In any case, no store I know in Australia would even accept a return or exchange undies without all the original tags still attached, and especially not if it was clear they’d been worn. This would contravene strict health regulations.

  39. shanaynay says:

    I stopped buying from VS too because a)90% of their merchandise is tacky and cheap looking b) I am also DD and none of their bras are supportive or comfortable c) most of the wiring on their bras would rip out and spending $50 on a bra that will come apart in three months isn’t worth it to me.

    Did I mention their designs are tacky and cheap looking? VS splattered all over in hot pink and neon green isn’t flattering. Can’t someone make some nice affordable lingerie that doesn’t make me feel like a brothel whore yet sexy?

  40. Boromir's bytch says:

    Nothing is going to change with her, the gossip sites will just refer to her as the ex-VS’s angel and she’ll still have all her paps on speed dial. She’s not about to stop those daily strolls job or no job.

    And if the paps stop answering her calls she still has Instagram where she’s been known to post topless photos of herself directly.

  41. Scavenger says:

    I think this just more evidence that she is an insufferable B*^%H. And I agree with others that her face is nothing special.

  42. Shelly says:

    I hate VS bras. Most bra fitters will tell you that VS bras are cheaply made and not good bras. I do like a lot of their pajamas, though, and their lotions.

  43. taxi says:

    Candace Swanepoel has a child.

  44. ycnan says:

    If you have big boobs, you must check out this site. Love it, really great bras, like I never knew a bra could fit this good. A friend sent it to me years ago and I have not bought a bra anywhere since.


  45. Dawn says:

    I just can’t bash Flynn’s mom. I just think that kid is so damn cute that I just can’t!

  46. Shannon says:

    I don’t buy from VS because their overpriced bras are horribly constructed of subpar materials. I can get a much better bra at Macy’s for half the price.

  47. Gossip Garl says:

    good things always come to those who wait.

  48. Timber says:

    She has a very odd looking face on a big head. She sort of looks like she was a fetal syndrome baby.

  49. Littlewood says:

    People.com: Though the brand won’t confirm the speculation, sources behind the scenes tell PEOPLE there’s some truth to the pervasive diva rumors. “She can be difficult at shoots and appearances. She’s not very timely,” the source says. “She’s standoffish with the rest of the girls.” And now we know what her difficult reputation is, she’s a diva that cannot get along with her colleagues and not at all what her image is trying to portray.

  50. Bridget says:

    Hasn’t Victoria’s Secret been having a lot of problems because it turned out that most consumers over 25 thought they were tacky? There a lot of stories about their low sales and a move away from all the Love Pink stuff (which it turns out that not many women want that written across their butt) but I still feel like I’m visually accosted every time I walk by a VS store (and I’m only 31 by the way).

  51. Lisa says:

    She work a lot for others brand and I think VS isn’t happy for that.

  52. emma says:

    i don’t think i’ve ever bought anything form victoria’s secret. i think the angels are more for the guys to think that VS is sexy, to make the girls want to buy from there… but honestly, guys don’t care.

  53. Denise says:

    She’s the face of Mango at the moment, TV ads are running in the UK. So she’s still got something. Can’t say she charms me, and Orlando Bloom was such a knob when he gave her the standing ovation at the VS show complete with giant hand clap.

  54. kk says:

    I’ve known about Kerr since before she was a famous model because my ex bf hooked up with her once. Because of this I’ve sort of been hate following her for the past 7 years and have seen her explode into this ‘superstar’. I’ve always thought she seemed like a vacuous moron though especially with that treasure yourself book, seriously? You are going to write a book supposedly on how to improve your self esteem and one of your biggest tips which she says all the time is to drink lemon water in the morning to jump start your metabolism. What an asshole, I cackled with glee when I read this headline. From here she will lose more and more jobs eventually getting too old for that world, inevitably get divorced from Bloom (who is also known to be a loser) and fade into oblivion.

    It cracks me up all of these VS models who claim to be environmental campaigners and then getting the big bucks from a company who uses gazillions of trees worth of paper printing catalogues. And how’s that $20 mill mansion going for you Gisele? Don’t they see/care about being hypocrites? Nah course not.

    I stopped buying VS in college! I’m not obese but I’ve always been curvy. Even in college when I was around a size 8-10 with boobs bordering a C cup, I felt like the lingerie did not flatter my body type. I’ve felt more comfortable in bras that I’ve bought at the local mega mart type stores and not only that, I think the material holds up better than a lot of VS stuff. VS with their shapeless models and clothing exclusive only to thin people is encouraging young girls who are already self conscious to believe that they need to be skinnier just to fit into some crappy VS clothing.

    Who writes this stuff!? It’s not that Miranda “tells us to” per se, but Victoria’s Secret are using the age old marketing tool- selling via a gorgeous “Angel” who we all aspire to look like. That’s why we buy- we are supposed to think that with that bra/knicker set we will suddenly turn into her. Nothing to do with Miranda telling us to. They obviously feel for whatever reason (and usually these hiring/firing decisions are based on consumer research) that Miranda Kerr is less relatable to the average consumer than Alessandra Ambrosio. And I think it is a fallacy to try to pin it on her being brunette or a mother, or being old, because Alessandra also is all of these things.
    If rumours are circulating about a “difficult reputation” I would take it on face value. She is a high profile model and it is not unusual for such persons to have unreasonable monetary demands. I find this easy to believe given that she obviously values her family time highly so she may be demanding a rate they cannot match in order to justify the time she’s missing out on with Flynn.

      Oh please, she has been working harder then ever since Flynn was born. If she wants to spend more time with her son why is she doing commercials for a Japanese laundry detergent? Why did she fly to Cancun to attend the opening of a Louis Vuitton store, why was she on her own for over a week in NY last November before flying Flynn in with the nanny from South Africa and being out almost every night attending half a dozen parties with Leo DiCaprio. She was fired from both David Jones and VS for her diva behavior, don’t believe any of this was her decision, this girl lives for attention!

    Victoria Secret issued a statement that this story is not true.

    I don’t buy VS either.

    • Littlewood says:

      Where? They said they’ll continue to work with her, same as what they said with Marissa (and she was never seen again). He said: she will always be an Angel to me, not she’s still an Angel. Of course she’ll walk the show, any opportunity to be in the spotlight she’ll take.

  59. Claudia says:

    Ah, so many of you mentioned starting out with VS/or that VS is more for teens and 20-somethings until they get old enough to know better. Well, I’m 26 and I want to know better! Haha. PLEASE give me some websites or the names of some lingerie shops so I can start wearing quality lingerie!

    Any recommendations?

    Am I the only one who doesn’t care for Victoria Secret and thinks their stuff is overpriced and falls apart? Not to mention their bra sizing runs very small, so women who are DD at VS are probably only a small C when accurately sized? I quit wearing VS when I was a senior in high school because their DD bras wouldn’t even cover half my boob, now I am a 32F, which doesn’t even exist at VS.

    Also, I have a friend who is a model in NYC and she posted a picture of her on FB with Miranda Kerr and Miranda is glaring at the camera and looks insanely pissed to stand next to my friend and pose for a picture, it’s hilarious. I don’t think they had met prior to that.

  61. i can probbaly tell says:

    I think I wondered once while browsing on VS website,when every other product clothes or lingerie or even shoes I clicked were modelled by either alessandra or candice,I thought VS might track what people buy and which one makes them sell,I think thats the only reason alessandra who is probably the oldest model is still there,believe me even if the same lingerie is worn by any other model I wouldnt notice it as much but Ale whould make me atleast open to view it full,I think she is a good model the way she poses etc,and I rarely picked anything on miranda,I dont think its a blonde vs brunette thing coz adriana and alessandra being the oldest+brunete are still there.

  62. Abby says:

    Apparently I’m the vast minority, but she was my favorite angel! Oh wells. I love VS underwear, but they quit making the ones I love. I keep hoping they’ll bring them back. The bras are nice though.

  63. Caroline says:

    Lily Aldridge has super short legs and her body never returned after having the baby.
    Erin has never been known for anything except for Leo’s temporary girl buddy, her face is just super bland.
    Miranda is much more superior than all of the above models, and (imo) Ale and Adriana. (they look more different after having babies, miranda looked more stylish)

    • Littlewood says:

      I don’t agree but that’s not the point. You can be the prettiest woman in the world but if you have a nasty attitude, unwilling to do the work you’re contracted to do and none of your colleagues like you, you’re are not keeping your job. There are hundreds of younger, prettier and harder working models waiting to take her place, she won’t be missed.

  64. Amelia says:

    She sure has a wonky boob job.
