On how the Victoria’s Secret show is empowering:

‘There’s something really powerful about a woman who owns her sexuality and is in charge. A show like this celebrates that and allows all of us to be the best versions of ourselves. Whether it’s wearing heels, make-up or a beautiful piece of lingerie – if you are in control and empowered by yourself, it’s sexy. I personally love investing in a powerful scent or piece of lingerie, but I ensure it’s on my terms. I like to set a positive example, so would never be part of something I didn’t believe in.’

… says Karlie.

  1. Being objectified is not a “sexuality”. Wearing objectifying clothes is not a “sexuality”.

    This bull needs to stop asap.

  2. I somewhat agree that VS does a good job of making women look their best. Without VS help I would never find this woman attractive but the right makeup and colors help. However she should stick to natural blonde and not that white blonde. Also why does the best version have to be starved to the point of seeing chest bones? Fitness is great but acting like having a little meat is a sin is just sad and it’s normally unnatural for a healthy woman to have any chest bones showing. I had that when I was an anorexic pre-teen. I think another ten pounds on her would really help to promote health and not starvation. Without the boobs her torso just looks like a tan homeless man.

    • I think the chestbones really don’t have anything to do with it…. I’m healthy and definitely NOT skinny but my chestbones are still always visible and they have been my whole life…. Granted I don’t have large boobs, but still I think that just depends on your personal anatomy.

      • Probably most healthy women with small boobs show some degree of chest bones and ribs. Some who have higher body fat do too if you store your fat in your lower body. I think she looks great and I think VS does a great job promoting clothes for healthy, in shape and thin women. Nothing wrong with that it my book.

  3. Maybe I’m missing something here, but what exactly is so empowering about not eating for days, not even having water the day before the show (Adriana’s actual routine) just to look as skinny as possible in an overstuffed bra and tacky accessories? Has to be the paycheck, I guess. The whole VS phenomenon should have ended after the early 00s, imo.

  4. I love Karlie for her work in getting girls into coding and tech, but I think she is just wrong on this point. I get the impression that she is pretty confident in her self and comfortable in her own skin, which is great for her, and she should be, but maybe she doesn’t realize the effect that these images of what’s “sexy” have on girls…it makes them feel the opposite of confident or empowered to see a woman’s worth equated to her looks, and deemed worthy only if they have a very specific look that is unattainable for most. I feel like she should know better than this.

  5. I have no problem with a show centered around beautiful rare looking women
    But let’s not bs what this is really about and that it’s empowering
    If so let’s see a big fat hairy short stinky woman walking down the runway

    • I agree with you.
      I personally find the show somewhat empowering because VS presents their models as icons, goddesses, not nameless runway models. I feel like that’s something to aspire to personally. But I have to admit I feel “included” because the look VS presents is similar to my own. I understand it must suck if you look far from this and thus do not feel your “look” is ever being celebrated.

      • As someone who is usually good at remembering names, I couldn’t name all of the VS (show) models without using google. Most brands/designers have their special girls that they present as iconic for any given period of time, just take a look at Karl Lagerfeld’s many muses, for example. And now I feel bad for comparing VS to Chanel, lol.

        • Well there are many. But think of the classic angels from the past: Alessandra, Adriana, Gisele, Doutzen, Miranda. They were made by VS. And now, Candice, Romee, Lily, Elsa, Jasmine,… I’m not a big VS fan but that’s just on top of my head.
          Lagerfeld does have muses but also has a lot of nameless girls. He uses one girl and puts her on a pedestal whereas VS uses many.
          I am in no way a “fan” of the brand but some of you guys are negative just for the sake of it (not you Annie), and it stems from insecurity. Nothing in my comment was offensive but it gets down voted simply because of envy. But that’s ok. Live and let live, I choose positivity 🙂

          • I get what you’re saying about them achieving high, icon, status in their careers, which is why I think someone like Karlie IS confident and empowered, because she is so successful and independent, which is awesome. But the problem is, her success comes from (mostly) something she was born with, less so from skills and talents she developed. (of course she did develop as a model, but not to the same degree as someone with college-level or graduate-level education and a professional career). So while its empowering to HER to be in that position, it still isn’t the best message to send to girls, including those who might look like her, because the chances of getting to the VS show are extremely small and it is better for vast majority of them to focus on something more substantive than modeling. And I think Karlie knows that because she does work to get girls into life-long careers like tech that require education and a lot of learning, but where the hard work pays off (ie, success is not as dependent on luck -> this is what breeds true confidence). So its a little disappointing that she wouldn’t see the VS show from that same perspective, rather than just her own. Maybe she does but is making good money there and doesn’t want to say anything negative about her employer. My personal problem with the VS show is not envy at all, but that it makes girls focus more on the things that in the end matter less, their appearance, and I don’t see that as a win or empowering for women.

          • No, your comment got downvoted cos it reeks of narcissism. And I’m a tall slim chick too, so don’t even go there
