Along with the 38-year-old actress, the brand has gotten World Cup winner Megan Rapinoe, Sudanese-Australian model Adut Akech, freestyle skier Eileen Gu, Brazilian transgender model Valentina Sampaio, plus-size model Paloma Elesser, and journalist Amanda de Cadenet to join the campaign to reshape the lingerie company.

Allegedly, the superstars will not be modeling underwear and bras but will rather be brought on as "spokeswomen and will instead appear on a podcast and in marketing materials for the recovering brand."

The branding series will also include a 10 episode podcast that will feature the inspiring group. A source explained, "It’s a group of women inspiring change and positivity. It’s another step they’re taking towards transforming the brand. The entire industry thought Victoria's Secret was done."

"[The Collective] is completely cause-driven … The idea is to create this community of outsiders looking in," a source said of the effort to save the out of touch brand. "It’s a new generation for the brand that is more about inclusivity. And they [Victoria’s Secret] needed it if they wanted to stay afloat. The brand was stuck in an era that never evolved. It’s a different world now."

The company that used to be one of the largest brands in the world, but not always inclusive to all body types, is soon to be publicly traded.

The brand hit controversy in 2018 when former chief marketing officer, Ed Razek left the company after making disgusting comments saying that "the public has no interest in seeing plus-size or transgender models on the catwalk" and that "the fashion show is a fantasy."
