Victoria’s Secret May FIRE Candice Swanepoel, TOO THIN!
WOWZER! I’m not sure if I should be happy at Victoria’s Secret for standing up for a cause, or upset that someone could potential lose their job for a physical attribute.
Victoria Secrets MAY fire the beautiful Candice Swanepoel for being too thin! Victoria’s Secrets has NEVER been known to hire super skinny models with no bodies. They LOVE the curves of woman and believe that should be expressed in their lingerie…
aside from the fact a toothpick really can’t rock the lingerie as well as a woman with a real body. According to all Angels’ contracts, the ladies are expected to maintain a healthy and muscular physique.
This is what an insider from VS has to say about the issue:
“There is a really clear criteria for both Angels and the catalogue. Their career path is Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue then to Angel, it’s the highest paying contract there is, period. The image is about being voluptuous, it’s not fat, but it’s curvy. But if you start to look skinny and ‘editorial print-like’ like fashion mag models, like undernourished, it gives the image the company does not want. Their shopper is older, their target is the Macy’s shopper. These are young women who feel pressure these models, she [Swanepoel] could lose her contract if she gets too thin. But I’d be surprised if it went that far, she’ll right herself first. Of course they’ll talk to her though, the company is all about image.”
The picture featured has Candice in the middle… and boy does she look thin… I mean, that’s not cute WHATTHEFUCKSOEVER. I WOULD NOT buy clothes from Victoria’s Secret from a woman that looked that thin. The picture was taken on March 30, 2011 at the Secret Swimwear Launch 2011.
Some people are saying the 5’9 model looks to be around 109 pounds. Victoria Secrets needs her to get to 125 pounds.
Candice response back to the rumors by saying, “I am healthy and happy. I’m heartened to know how much everyone cares about me, but in this case, everything is normal and good.”
