Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Fashion Shows, Models,

Taylor Swift and Lily AldridgeTaylor Swift "didn't fit in" on the Victoria's Secret catwalk, according to model Jessica Hart.

The 23-year-old singer performed at the annual fashion show in New York on Wednesday, but Australian lingerie model Jessica wasn't impressed by her on the runway. When asked if the leggy "I Knew You Were Trouble" star could pull it off as a Victoria's Secret model, Jessica replied bluntly, "No." Speaking to Women's Wear Daily at the after show party, she said, "I think, you know what, God bless her heart. I think she's great. But I don't know, to me, she didn't fit. I don't know if I should say that. I think what you find is that for a lot of us, we've been working for 14, 15 years, what it takes to make it here comes from experience and confidence and knowing how to be confident with yourself. I think it comes with age. It's definitely the benchmark of all jobs."

Miranda Kerr’s Contract Not Renewed

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Models, News, Rumors,

Miranda Kerr in the Victoria's Secret ShowMiranda Kerr has allegedly been dropped as a Victoria's Secret Angel because of her "difficult reputation."

The Australian supermodel, who is married to British actor Orlando Bloom with whom she shares two-year-old son Flynn, has been let go as one of the main faces of the lingerie brand after her $1 million, three year-contract "was not renewed."

A source told UsMagazine.com that the 29-year-old beauty "has a difficult reputation" and suggested it was the main reason she will no longer walk the company's star-studded annual catwalk show wearing a prestigious pair of angel's wings, an honor reserved for just a handful of the brand's top faces.

Another source indicated the brunette model is "not a big seller for VS," compared to its other Angels like Alessandra Ambrosio, 31, Candice Swanepoel, 24, and Adriana Lima, 31.

Miranda Kerr’s Runway Fun

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Fashion Shows, Models,

Miranda KerrMiranda Kerr tries to have "fun" when she is on the runway.

The Australian beauty - best known as a model for underwear brand Victoria's Secret - admits she does get nervous when she has to parade her body in front of people, but makes an effort to enjoy herself.

"For me personally I try not to think about it too much and just try to have fun with it and have a good time. I love runway, especially Victoria's Secret runways, they're really fun, we get to express our personality and have fun up there on stage. I also like studio shoots too, they're really fun. It's like working with family."

Miranda, who is married to British hunk Orlando Bloom, particularly loves the brand's new "sexy collection" and their multi-way bra: "The new very sexy collection is great for summer. It's so versatile. There's beautiful colors. My favorite piece in the collection is the very sexy multi-way bra. You can wear it cross back, halter back, low-back. It's just a really good bra to have in your wardrobe."

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Bullied by Agents

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Models, News,

Rosie Huntington-WhiteleyRosie Huntington-Whiteley claims she was "bullied" by modeling agents when she started out.

The Victoria's Secret beauty admitted she was more naïve when she first began working in the fashion industry and found it difficult to stand up for herself when she was feeling under pressure and overworked.

"It was hard. You can get a bit bullied. You're a child surrounded by adults and you don't have a voice. You get pushed around by agents; your needs don't matter. You say that you need a day off, or that you don't feel comfortable doing such-and-such, and people just don't listen," she said.

However, the 24-year-old model-and-actress says the power balance has shifted in her favour in recent years: "The last couple of years, things have been different. I have earned my right to be heard. All I ever wanted to do was to be part of the industry, to collaborate with people and have a voice. I love fashion, I love what I do and I have an opinion ... They treat me like I'm part of the family, not just some clothes hanger."

Items Du Jour: Anja Rubik Gets Engaged, Lady Gaga Makes Unicorns Sexy

Anja Rubik for Fendi-- Victoria Beckham covers February's issue of Vogue UK looking rather bare-faced and less glamorous than usual. Marking her sixth solo Vogue cover, the singer-turned-fashion designer talks about her style's evolution and -- more importantly -- what it's like to wake up next to David Beckham.

-- Hilary Swank is one Oscar-winning actress who actually is down-to-earth: the woman loves a good bargain, and isn't ashamed of -- gasp -- clipping coupons. If only she had shopping secrets to scoring designer labels...

-- Anja Rubik stars in her third consecutive Fendi campaign, shot (of course) by Karl Lagerfeld.

-- Speaking of Anja, the model's agency recently announced her Christmas engagement to fellow model Sasha Knezevic. As if there aren't enough super hot couples to be jealous of.

-- Lady Gaga treated her monsters to a nice holiday surprise with details of her upcoming album. More importantly, she posted a preview of the album art, which features her rocking a unicorn-blazoned jean jacket that reads, "Born This Way." Oh, and she has completely ditched pants -- literally.

Selita Ebanks Shares Her Bad Vogue Experience

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Models,

Selita EbanksSelita Ebanks was dismissed from Vogue magazine with a wave of the hand from editor Anna Wintour. The Victoria's Secret model - who has recently been lauded for her starring role in Kanye West's Runaway film - told how she once had a disastrous meeting with bosses at the fashion bible.

"I wore Timberland boots. I had on corduroy high-water flooded beige pants with a button-down plaid shirt. I was a tomboy. I remember walking in ... Trudy, from Vogue at the time, she looks at me startled and I didn't understand why. I was like, 'What up? Who am I here to meet?' I walk into the office, I got maybe two steps into the room and I look and it's amazing Ms. Anna Wintour. She goes [makes a dismissive wave] and dismisses me. Needless to say my cover did not come out, to say the least, and I have never shot Vogue magazine," she explained to MTV News.

Rather than being bitter, Selita, 27, considers her visit to the offices a learning experience. "Now that I reflect back on it the lesson is to always do your homework. Always be aware, don't just take people's word for it and walk into a room. I should've asked, 'Who am I here to see? Who will be in the room?' But this is something you live and you learn."
