New York Magazine believes that in an effort to fight the flak they’ve recently been receiving for insanely skinny model Candice Swaenpoel, Victoria’s Secret is now promoting photos of their new, curvier model, Kate Upton (above).
Apparently, Victoria’s Secret is trying now trying to emphasize that their bras and panties are not only for thin girls, but are for all girls. They are not trying to give the impression that they “promote ‘too thin’ body types.”
If you ask me, this girl is still pretty skinny. But I admit she does look a lot healthier than Candice. What’s interesting about Kate is that she’s only 18 years old! …and has recently been featured in this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
The Herald Sun comments on VS’s new model and states a hope to “a return to an original roster of curvy models that made the brand so famous.”
What do you Lovelies think of Victoria’s Secret’s new model, Kate Upton? Do you think she’s too thin still or a better representation of the American female figure?
