Miranda Kerr was just reportedly dropped as a Victoria’s Secret Angel! But before you get your panties all up in a bunch, here’s why losing the title means little to nothing for the model.
UsWeekly reports that Kerr’s three-year $1 million contract wasn’t renewed because she apparently “has a difficult reputation” and that she wasn’t “a big seller for VS”. However, Victoria’s Secret chief marketing officer Ed Razek called Kerr “one of the best models in the history of the business” and “a consummate professional”. So what’s the real deal? Maybe it has something to do with Kerr’s dissatisfaction with the company after a Greenpeace study revealed hazardous and potentially cancer-causing chemicals in VS samples.
Nonetheless, Kerr will continue working with the company, and a source suggests that she can still do catalogue work for VS for a daily rate. In a statement to PopSugar Fashion News, Razek wrote:
“Any rumors to the contrary are simply untrue. While her international commitments have kept her away from us more than we’d like over the past few years, she will always be an Angel to me. We have no plans to stop working with her. In fact, I’ve already invited her to walk the runway in this year’s fashion show and, happily, she’s agreed.”
So despite being reportedly dropped as an Angel, Kerr will continue struttin’ it on the runway for VS, and has the option of doing catalogue work as well. Not bad at all.
Lest you think her calendar is going to start emptying, Kerr has a pretty solid resume even without the Angel title. She’s the current face of Mango, has her own skincare line Kora, has walked in a slew of fancy fashion shows, is a street style fixture, and gets to hang out with the likes of Jennifer Lawrence. So yeah, girl’s going to be fine.
But just in case all else fails, she can always make more weird commercials in Japan, or, ya know, that whole topless photo thing:
