The strange things that happen on Fox News don’t really faze us anymore, but somehow, anchors and show hosts still manage to do things that raise our eyebrows. On Friday’s radio show Fox & Friends with Brian Kilmeade and Gretchen Carlson, a nice listener called in to compliment Alisyn Camerota, a Fox anchor who was filling in for Carlson. What happened next is nothing short of sexist.
Victoria’s Secret received plenty of well-deserved approbation for their role in helping out with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts in the week leading up to their annual fashion show, and this year’s spectacle was every bit the glittery, star-studded bash that we’ve come to expect. But all is not well in lingerie land, after the company sent (white, American model) Karlie Kloss down the runway in a feathered headdress, buckskin bikini, and oodles of turquoise jewelry as part of the “Calendar Girls” segment of the show.
Big hair, bling-y bras, and Justin Bieber — yup, we could only be talking about the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Last night the Angels touched down at the Lexington Avenue Armory in the midst of a bitter snowstorm for the annual lingerie extravaganza, and man did they put on a show!
Karlie Kloss just chopped off her locks, and we are totally loving her new look.
When Hurricane Sandy hit the Eastern seaboard last Monday, the armory of the New York Army National Guard’s 69th Infantry Regiment, along with the rest of lower Manhattan, lost heat, power, internet, and most cell phone service — all of which are essential to coordinating their disaster relief efforts.
If you’re still looking for a last-minute Halloween costume, well, look no further than Coco Rocha‘s slighty-scary-mostly-trippy video for Vs. Magazine.
The annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show seems to get a bit more ridiculous each year, but we still love it. This November, oiled-up models will strut their stuff in barely-there lingerie and big ol’ Angel wings to the tunes of Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and Bruno Mars. The show’s last look is traditionally a very fancy and expensive bra, and this year’s wearer is Alessandra Ambrosio.
After performances by Jay-Z, Kanye West, Maroon 5, and Nicki Minaj in 2011, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show sure has found themselves a tough act to follow. Luckily, they’ve pulled three huge names to head up this year’s musical stylings.
And yet another model Victoria’s Secret model gets maimed by Photoshop!
Victoria’s Secret is just brimming with controversy these days, what with its overzealous airbrushing, insulting other models, and misleading packaging. Its latest scandal is a questionable ”Sexy Little Geisha” outfit.

Victoria’s Secret has just been slapped with a $15 million lawsuit by its former hosiery supplier Zephyrs. The company alleges that Victoria’s Secret and its parent company Limited Brands Inc. breached a 2001 contract, and are selling three cheap legwear products with images of Zephyrs-designed hosiery on the packaging.
Doutzen Kroes is, as Janis Ian might say, a regulation hottie. But that doesn’t stop Victoria’s Secret from doing some heavy Photoshop work on her swimwear photos before they make their way to the retailer’s website and catalog.
Victoria’s Secret held a shindig yesterday at their NYC Soho store to celebrate the launch of their “Body by Victoria” line. Naturally, they brought some Angels along to help them do the job right.
Los Angeles was buzzing with red carpet activity last night! Hollywood was taken over by the premiere of Battleship, while pretty people attended a Victoria’s Secret party in Beverly Hills.
Before she was busy intimidating talk show hosts, guzzling protein shakes, and popping out babies, an 18-year-old Adriana Lima walked her first show for Victoria’s Secret. Apparently she even told the president of the company that the occasion marked “her first day as a woman.”
We always assumed Ellen DeGeneres was a great gift-giver, and now she’s proved it by giving Miranda Kerr a hilariously apt present.
We sincerely hope you’ve been hitting the gym lately, because Candice Swanepoel, Victoria’s Secret Angel and certified bombshell, is looking forward to designing a line of itsy bitsy teenie weenie (maybe even polka dot!) bikinis.
