Does one of these Victoria’s Secret models look skinnier than the other? According to E! News, Candice Swanepoel (the “Angel” in the middle) could be putting her contract with Victoria’s Secret in jeopardy because she’s reportedly getting too skinny for the desired image of an Angel. What do you think?
According to an E! News source, Candice’s contract with Victoria’s Secrets states she is expected to be “healthy and muscular.”
But recent photos of the 22-year-old model at a fashion shoot reportedly show her looking thinner than usual.
“There is a really clear criteria for both Angels and the catalogue. Their career path is Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue then to Angel, it’s the highest paying contract there is, period,” the source says. “The image is about being voluptuous, it’s not fat, but it’s curvy.”
“But if you start to look skinny and ‘editorial print-like’ like fashion mag models, like undernourished, it gives the image the company does not want,” the source continues. “Their shopper is older, their target is the Macy’s shopper. These are young women who feel pressure these models, she [Swanepoel] could lose her contract if she gets too thin.”
But it may not even be a problem, according to the source.
“But I’d be surprised if it went that far, she’ll right herself first,” the source explained. “Of course they’ll talk to her though, the company is all about image.”
And just last year, Alessandra Ambrosio was also criticized for looking too thin when she was shot in a bikini.
Still, do you think Candice looks too thin in these photos or does she look like the other two girls?
