Victoria’s Secret Considering Suggested Breast Cancer Survivor Bras

We previously told you about the campaign launched by Allana Maiden asking Victoria’s Secret to make “survivor bras” to “help breast cancer survivors feel beautiful.” Maiden is close to the concerns of those with breast cancer, her mother Debbie Barrett is 21 years cancer free, and hoped a petition would help urge the company to participate. Yesterday, Allana and her mother delivered the petition to the company’s office in New York City and got really positive responses.

What It Says On the Tin

A Victoria’s Secret Model Breaks Down Privilege and Physical Insecurity in This TED Talk [VIDEO]

Victoria’s Secret model Cameron Russell gives honest answers to questions about the superficiality—and the importance—of physical appearance in our society. Speaking as someone who fully acknowledges her success stems from her winning the “genetic lottery,” Russell’s perspective is quite interesting. My favorite part is when she explains what she wants to say to little girls when they tell her they want to be a model: That they should instead aspire to ”Be my boss. Because I’m not in charge of anything. And you could be the editor-in-chief of American Vogue or the CEO of H&M or the next [legendary fashion photographer] Steven Meisel.”

(It would be great if she actually told them that, but I won’t judge her for it.)

Victoria’s Secret Uses DMCA to Interrupt Anti-Rape Campaign

I’d known that Victoria’s Secret had been targeted lately by a group called FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture lately, although “targeted” is perhaps a strong word for “creating a parody marketing campaign designed to bring attention the idea of enthusiastic consent” (which involved sending press releases, creating a fake website, and seeding actual panties with pro-consent slogans in a few actual Victoria’s Secret stores), and allowing folks who didn’t look too deeply into it to believe that it was a genuine move by VS itself for about 24 hours, until the group announced their real identity. What I didn’t know was that instead of gently acknowledging, simply ignoring, or otherwise letting alone a campaign that pokes some very pointed fun at the company, Victoria’s Secret slapped FORCE’s web presence with a DMCA takedown during the most pivotal part of their campaign.


Is Victoria’s Secret That She’s Into Anime?

Come on, Vicky, you can tell us! Neon Genesis Evangelion is really a great show, and probably about as mainstream as anime gets, outside of 4Kids Animation. I mean, it’s not like you’re watching Mononoke (that’s, Mononoke, not Princess Mononoke) or making elaborate Axis Powers Hetalia costumes.

Because seriously, I guess there’s a bra on Jourdan Dunn here, but mostly you’ve dressed her up in a Rei Ayanami cosplay. I mean, just look:
