  2. Victoria’s Secret Considering Suggested Breast Cancer Survivor Bras

    Today in Boobs

    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 Change.org 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.

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

    What It Says On the Tin

    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.) (via: Death and Taxes) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

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

    the internet is serious business

    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.

  6. 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:

  7. Transformers 3: Megan Fox Out, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In — Wait, Who?

    As you surely already know, Megan Fox won't be spending her summer with any robots in disguise. Since her official dismissal/resignation/whatever you want to call it, the world (mainly the male world) has been watching Michael Bay to see who could possible replace such a Fox.

    Well, it looks like we have our answer: the actress (?) will be Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. You know, Rosie, from that thing with the stuff. OK, fine, you got me. Her only IMDB credits are four instances of The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and one episode of Britain's Next Top Model, on which she was not a contestant.

    But what is Bay really trying to say with this choice? Is it a big middle finger to the apparently easily replaceable Megan Fox? Is it an even bigger finger extended toward the whole idea of star power? Or is it just Bay bragging about how he can make a star out of anyone, but only for so long as they stay under his wing (see Jennifer's Body, Fox's non-Bay effort)?
