video: lily aldridge as victoria’s secret sexy little bride
by Jeremy Danté
represented by IMG, lily aldridge appears for the latest victoria’s secret collection, the little sexy bridal collection. fusing classic with sexy, the commercial sees aldridge doing everything bridal-esque, wearing white platformed heels in sheer panties & lace bra, cutting a wedding cake. evidentally, it doesn’t appear that lily plans on eating that cake anytime soon- what happened to the days when victoria’s secret was celebrating curves & not misrepresenting women? while i celebrate women of all ethnicities & sizes, i feel that the new standard that has been introduced in the form of the new VS angels has fast become unrealistic & drastically effects the female public who both views & shops at victoria’s secret. while VS is not known for carrying plus sizes, i did respect the fact that curves were embraced by the lingerie giant but that has seemed to change. with with stars like jennifer lopez, kim kardashian & beyonce embracing their full frames & sexy curves- what statement is VS sending in concealing the bodies of real women? the new crop of VS angels should be compared, more accurately, to girls than women.
