“Victoria’s Secret, your performative ally is a joke. “
Former Victoria’s Secret model Bridget Malcolm calls out the brand for the way she was treated after their 2016 fashion show.
The Australian model walked the runway in 2015 and 2016, but was later kicked out of their 2017 runway when she didn’t have the same bra size as the year before.
“I found my bra from the Victoria’s Secret 2016 show. It’s a size 30A. I’m now a size 34B which is healthy for me, ”Bridget explained to TikTok.
“Look how important it was to me. The sadness behind my eyes from the 2016 show breaks my heart, ”Bridget admitted, referring to a photo from the event.
She then tried on the bra, just to show how incredibly small it was.
She continued, “I was rejected from the show in 2017 by [former CEO] Ed Razek. He said, ‘My body didn’t look good enough.’ I was a size 30B at the time. “
“Victoria’s Secret, your performative ally is a joke,” Bridget concluded.
Bridget’s post comes just days after Victoria’s Secret announced her VS Collective initiative to help reinvent beauty standards for women.
The brand will remove its “Angels” to celebrate all kinds of women and “join forces with vital causes for women”.
But for Bridget, the effort is “too little too late”.
