Victoria’s Secret has refresheed its priviledged cast of angels not with one, not with two, and no, not even with three, but with TEN new faces!
Lo so, lo so, avevate imparato a dire Adriana – Alessandra – Candice – Lily – Behati – Doutzen – Lindsey – Karlie senza alcuna difficoltà, ma ora è il momento di ricominciare da capo.
Una sfida non indifferente.
E qui sollevo la prima critica, perché con questa mossa il titolo di “angelo” perde inevitabilmente privilegio ed esclusività.
The abandon of the dutch Doutzen Kroes and of the american Lindsey Ellingson and Karlie Kloss, left to Victoria’s Secret the duty of finding three worthy substitutes, able to carry the weight of the wings.
A hard challenge.
Surely they didn’t need deep maths competences: because if 8 angels minus 3 angels equals 5, then 5 plus 3 makes 8… But not for Victoria’s Secret! They don’t like adding, they prefer multiplying. So the angels have been tripled: from five to FIFTEEN!
And here there is my first critique: with this move, the title of “angel” invitably loses prestige and exclusivity.
Stella and I tried to organize the new angels in three cathegories, giving each model a “wing power” from one to three, according to her potentiality, presence and “social factor”, which is something always taken more and more into consideration in the fashion world: how many followers do the new Victoria’s Secret angels have on Twitter and Instagram?
Ok, adesso basta matematica: incontriamo i nuovi angeli!
Ok, let’s stop with maths now, and let’s meet the new angels!
They have been doing a lot for Victoria’s Secret and they have finally been rewarded. Elsa and Sara started from PINK (the line dedicated to girls) and later they began working for the main line, more adult and sexier, proving to be perfect for both the cathegories.
Among the new angels, Sara is the most followed on Instagram and Twitter. If we really want to mention a little lack, she is the shortest of all the Victoria’s Secret models, but in fact, this only helps to prove that Sara must have something special, for having become an angel. Indeed, who cares about your height when you have the perfect bikini body (Sara is also a Swim Illustated model) and your face features remind of Adriana Lima’s?
Lais started working for Victoria’s Secret in 2010, when she walked her first VS Fashion Show. As a Brasilian, she has that extra oomph: just look at her breath-taking body.
Working hard pays off, but sometimes one Fashion Show is enough…
In this cathegory there are two gorgeous and versatile models, queen of the international runways. But will they be able to become ambassadors of such a big brand as Victoria’s Secret, without having ever worked for them?
Taylor is the youngest of the fiftteen angels: last year year she walked her first runway for Victoria’s Secret, and she was just 18. However, beside the Fashion Show, her collaboration with VS has been limited to very little shoots for PINK.
Kate has never done a photoshoot for Victoria’s Secret, but we are sure she will live up the expectations, given the high versatility she is showing.
L’unica mia paura? Che Kate a Taylor si allontanino dall’ high fashion per dedicare più tempo a Victoria’s Secret.
What do we fear? Kate and Taylor leaving the high fashion world to focus more on Victoria’s Secret.
- NOT VICTORIA’S SECRET MATERIAL
We have the same argument about Martha and Stella (below): we don’t understand why Victoria’s Secret keeps promoting them. Apart from looking clearly alike, they have nothing memorable and that is not a good thing for a brand ambassador.
- YOU HAVE TO PROVE ME WRONG
Monika is maybe seen as Karlie Kloss‘s replacement, considering her thin figure, but just as Karlie, she is more suitable for high fashion jobs than commercial ones like Victoria’s Secret. However, Monika has a beautiful face and she is still very young: let’s wait and see.
