The fashion world was buzzing with news yesterday that Aussie model, Miranda Kerr, was getting her wings clipped by Victoria’s Secret. Although the rumor that she’s getting dropped by the company doesn’t appear to hold any truth, the rumors didn’t just create themselves. They stemmed from reports that Kerr would likely lose her yearly contract and therefore her official title as “Angel.”
What does that even mean? Well, according to NY Mag, she would still be employed with Victoria’s Secret and appear in ads, catalogs and their annual runway show. However, she just wouldn’t be one of the highest ranking in the hierarchy of the Victoria’s Secret Angel. Right now, Kerr is still included in this elite echelon alongside Alessandra Ambrosio, Karlie Kloss, Doutzen Kroes, Erin Heatherton, Lily Aldridge, Linday Ellingson, Adriana Lima, Behati Prinsloo and Candice Swanpoel.
Victoria’s Secret CMO Ed Rezek released a statement yesterday saying:
“Miranda Kerr is one of the best models in the history of the business — and easily one of the most popular. She is also a consummate professional. Any rumors to the contrary are simply untrue. We have no plans to stop working with her … While her international commitments have kept her away from us more than we’d like over the past few years, she will always be an Angel to me.”
So, regardless of if she’s contracted or not, we’ll still be seeing this Angel grace runways and advertisements. And that’s good enough for me.
