Victoria's Secret comes to the defense of Cara Delevingne
Last week, British tabloid The Sun "reported" that Cara Delevingne was rejected from walking in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show because the VS panel said she was "bloated."
Most tabloid trash is overlooked by those it targets. But Victoria's Secret's CMO, Edward Razek, was apparently so troubled by the story he wrote a letter to Delevingne to specifically address the claims. In it, he expressed his company's enthusiastic interest in having Delevingne in the show and extended an open invitation for her to join the Angels in Paris. (Scheduling conflicts are preventing her from participating this year.) Delevingne, who walked for VS in 2014, posted the letter on Instagram Friday—with a big, middle finger "f*ck you" to The Sun included:
To summarise: Body shaming is a pathetic marketing maneuver, and a gross one. It's not a story. Really, it quite literally isn't a story—as of now, The Sun's article no longer exists on its website; the link leads to a 404 error. How bout that.
