Cleavage, full lips and swinging hips lost its luster for Victoria Secret.
The annual fashion show will be cancelled this year. L Brands which owns Victoria Secret has been under pressure as the brand sees competition from American Eagle’s Aerie brand. Dozens of Victoria’s Secret stores will close this year.
L Brands is not without controversy. Leslie Wexner, CEO of L Brands had close ties to convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. The New York Post reported in their article”Epstein used Wexner’s link to Victoria’s Secret to recruit young women by promising them modeling jobs with the brand.”
The company has not embraced plus size women and transgender models and audiences.
LEd Razek, VS’s former chief marketing officer, made said we don’t want plus-size models on their runway or transgender models. That certainly put the LBGT community in a spin.
