Behati Prinsloo Defends Victoria's Secret Amid Fashion Show Criticism

Behati Prinsloo, one of the Victoria’s Secret Angels, is defending the fashion show amid some controversy about inclusion.

If you don’t know, chief marketing officer Ed Razek made some recent comments about the show when he said, “Shouldn’t you have transsexuals in the show? No. No, I don’t think we should. Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy. It’s a 42-minute entertainment special. That’s what it is. It is the only one of its kind in the world, and any other fashion brand in the world would take it in a minute, including the competitors that are carping at us.” The brand has also come under fire for not including models of all sizes in the runway presentation.

Behati was asked by Elle, “We’re in the midst of a major body positivity movement. Where do you think Victoria’s Secret fits in to that?”

“I think Victoria’s Secret embodies a lot of things. There’s a lot of talk about everything but I think people need to also understand that it’s a show. It’s not saying negative or positive about any body type, it’s ‘this is who they are.’ We’re strong, we’re confident, and I think any woman is a Victoria’s Secret woman,” Behati said. “But people also need to understand that it’s just a show. I don’t think that it says that they’re not for a certain type of body. It’s cool to talk about it and great to open up a conversation and so much good has happened. I think it’s a show. Let’s just have fun and not make it about anything and just have a great night and celebrate everyone.”

“We’ve all got a body, nobody looks the same. It’s tough, it’s a hard thing to do because there’s always two sides and I’m just trying to, you know, live my best life,” she added.
