So. Heidi Klum hasn’t been a former Victoria’s Secret Angel for two weeks, and she’s already landed another job. The supermodel will star in this season’s holiday ad campaign, just like she did last year.
Which, OK. Cool. She’s still working and getting paid and whatnot. And while we certainly don’t want to insult her newfound home, does anyone else think it’s a tiny bit weird of her to go from a super sexy, hip and modern brand to a purveyor of slightly bland basics?
Don’t get us wrong — it’s not like Victoria’s Secret is designed by Nicholas Ghesquiere or anything. We just think it’s a little odd for a model with a portfolio as racy as Heidi’s to shill for that store in the mall where our aunt gets her cardigans.
But maybe we’re over thinking this just a touch. Maybe Heidi wants to help the brand get a little hipper — remember back in April when Ann Taylor LOFT started a Tumblr? — and maybe she’s exactly the kind of spokesmodel the brand needs to start getting people’s attention.
