Until not long ago, Victoria’s Secret was one of the few lingerie companies (and the only major brand) to use models that were different from catwalk girls in that they were all toned and, at the same time, curvy. Candice Swanepoel is definitely no longer the latter.
The lingerie giant premiered its latest collection just recently, using three of its most famous Angels for it: Candice, Alessandra Ambrosio
and Adriana Lima.
Whereas Lima was her gorgeous self and Ambrosio seemed to have lost some more weight, it’s Candice’s appearance that’s getting people talking, with countless saying she’s way too thin.
People on Twitter are saying she needs to be “fed a burger right now,” that is, that she’s lost too much weight already, while various media outlets are talking of how Victoria’s Secret seems to be favoring size 0 girls now.
“On March 30, 2011, Candice, 22, and fellow Victoria’s Secret beauties Adriana Lima, 29, and Alessandra Ambrosio, 29, modeled the VS’s new line of swimswear at the Mondrian Hotel,” Examiner
show Candice with thinner legs, a very tiny waistline and a sharper jaw. In all the pics, she seems to be making an effort to pose with her backside pushed back to create the impression of curves, word online has it.
“While the 5’10” Swanepoel has always been thin, her stick-like legs and emaciated frame were a dramatic change from a few months ago, when she sported a healthier body at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show,” the e-zine says.
“Candice, whose fitness routine includes working out with a trainer 3 times a week and taking ballet classes, looked noticeably thinner around her jawline, torso and legs,” Examiner points out.
Candice is not the first Angel from Victoria’s Secret to come under fire for claims that she’s taking dieting too far in a bid to attain size 0.
and now-“Transformers” star Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
have also been criticized for losing too much weight, and thus going against everything that Victoria’s Secret should stand for: gorgeous women who can be healthy role models for other women around the world.
