Victoria's Secret Angel Sara Sampaio Speaks Out After a Magazine Published Her Revealing Photos

Sara Sampaio graces the cover of PorterEdit‘s latest issue, available now.

Here’s what the 26-year-old Victoria’s Secret Angel had to say…

On feeling violated when Lui magazine published revealing photos of her, after she said she had signed a no-nudity agreement: “I’m fine with nudity. I have done nudity in the past, but I don’t do nudity for men’s magazines. I can suggest nudity, but I don’t want to show my boobs to a men’s magazine…I felt violated. Now every time I’m on a set, do I have to delete the photos to make sure nobody uses them?”

On how models are not always respected and can be deemed difficult for speaking up: “Models are expected to show up on set, just be pretty, do our job and not say a word. When we do open our mouths, we’re branded as difficult, opinionated, troublemakers; we are told that we don’t know what we are talking about. We are still exploited. And it’s such a disposable industry that girls feel like they can’t say anything, because there will be some other girl out there who will just do it.”

On why it’s hypocritical to shame women for wanting to look sexy: “I think it’s kind of hypocritical that now people want everyone to be equal, they want everyone to be a feminist. But if a girl is being sexy because she wants to be sexy, people are saying, ‘Oh, no, you can’t be sexy.’ Isn’t that anti-feminism?”
