This Is What Victoria's Secret Consider "Fat"?!

We should love our body whether it’s curvy or thin, yadda yadda. I was almost right there with Victoria's Secret, until they promoted Kate Upton as a "curvy Angel" due to Candice Swanpoel getting slack for being "too thin", according to New York Magazine, Daily Mail, and other media outlets.

Uh huh, really? Kate Upton is VS's answer to "being too thin"?! Obviously Victoria's Secret marketing has never seen Biggest Loser or has been on PeopleOfWalmart.com or seen a whale performance at Marineland. But I suppose they wanted "model fat", and not "fat fat".

Unless people know what Candice Swanpoel's lifestyle entails I don't think she can be criticized for being "too" thin. But my butt cheeks have a hard time feeling sorry for Candice with her exquisite boobs and perfectly teased hair. When I am at work eating leftovers wondering if the 4 days old chicken is still good, I sometimes look at Candice in sexy underwear and think "oh, this is what I could be doing if I was Candice Swanpoel". So I think Candice needs to pull the "bitch, please" chapter out of Naomi Campbell's hand book and use it. I don't picture her sitting in a cubicle eating 4 days old chicken beside a co worker blabbering about her passport problems like a walrus on fire.

  3. Wow...I don't even know what to say. Glad they hired her but labeling her as a curvy model, huge mistake!

  4. She's beautiful, but quite the stretch to label her as a 'curvy angel'. And I highly doubt we'll ever see VS going with a 'fat fat' angel!

  5. WTF.

    I'm curvy, I'm a size 10-12. WTF

  6. I'm with Suteisi in saying WTF?!
    Kate is a beautiful girl but I wouldn't consider her curvy... she's slim. I'm worried for the impressional girls who might believe that this is what curvy is. I believe that VS needs to start using a more diverse collection of models.

  7. Perhaps they should do a test to see if people can tell the difference between the previous models and the "curvy" ones. Pretty sure they all look the same size/ body type. Where are the A cup angels hahaha?

  11. Curvy? She's not curvy. The only curves she has are the ones overflowing from her bra.

  12. And THIS is exactly why I always say that I don't have the body to be a model, when people ask me.. Fashion/Modeling industry is a bitch.. >_>

  13. I'm judging Victoria's Secret right now.

  14. Julie you are too funny!!
    I bet she is a size 0 instead of a 00 and that's why she is considered curvy.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I think she has an excellently proportioned body. Unfortunately society has this "ideal" and sometimes it make you wonder what we as women have to go through in order to fit that mold...its time to break free no?

    ReplyDelete
  16. wth, if she's fat then i'm morbidly obese..

    ReplyDelete
  17. wtf?! She's NOT curvy... VS is fucking crazy, I bet lots of curvy girls felt even more insecure after seeing that.

  18. LOL, 4 days would be the limit for me.

    There are attractive plus-size people, but so few brands want to be associated with that look. I have a neighbor who gets mad every time he goes shopping...he's big, but can't find normal brands (like Docker's pants) in his size. My guess is Docker's doesn't their merchandise on someone that size. Which is stupid, they could make a fortune in the plus-size market.

  26. If this girl is what they consider curvy then does that mean Beyonce (or other real CURVY girls ) obese? Being a proud curvy girl..I would not have a problem schooling them on what is considered CURVY or as I prefer...CURVACEOUS

    ReplyDelete
  27. She is curvy? what does that make the rest of us
    she is beautiful with a to die for body

    ReplyDelete
  28. That's so not 'curvy'. She looks like a regular VS -size model

    ReplyDelete
  29. ahh, a college girl can only dream of owning such luxurious purses, unless.... i won't go there for fear of offending people. anyway.....

    thanks for stopping by my blog! hope you come back soon!!

    and time out! what are they thinking? people these days don't know what being fat or what being thin really means.

    ReplyDelete
  30. WTF. I see no difference between her and the other angels! That's a slap in the face VS that makes me doubt whether I should continue buying your crap-tastic pink pjs. Oh wait, I already don't.

    ReplyDelete
  31. She's beautiful but i'm still thinking they should hire normal bodies like mine! :)
    Thanks for the visit! beijossss

    following you!

  32. If she's curvy than I'm full on large- I mean give me a break- she is beautiful and so slim!

    ReplyDelete
  33. She's very pretty but not exactly what I would call curvy.

    ReplyDelete
  34. OMG you crack me up with your old chicken bit!!! haha still laughing... She seems pretty thin to me. Honestly I don't know how much photoshopping they do these days but I'm sure she's not curvy at all!

    ReplyDelete
  35. LOL Great post. Kate Uptown has a great figure and so does Candice WhateverLOL, I dont think the latter will fall into poverty over the loss of the VS deal.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wow, that is pretty cruel. UGH to the fashion industry.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Curvy angel? She looks like any other model! But gah, whatever. I honestly quite despise the whole curvy women thing. Back then, we promoted thinness and shunned curves. The only difference is now we're shunning thin models, and promoting curvy ones. It's not any better...we just need to accept everyone.

  38. That's fat? I don't have words..

  41. I'm confused? She pretty much looks like the other angels..... but more "real." If they call this curvy then I must be gigantic!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Fat.?? I am very confused now with Victoria's models..
    Are they at least allowed to eat once in the while? haha
    Ps. I am so sorry if I haven't been able to read your blog lately.. I was on holiday.. but I am back now!
