Kate Upton is not sorry the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was reportedly cancelled, and she blamed the reason on the show being a real snoozefest. Upton appeared Sunday alongside 50 Cent for Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, and was asked about the fashion show getting the axe. You know what? We’re sick of seeing the same body type, Upton quipped.
She added, You have to be body inclusive now. Every woman needs to be represented, otherwise, it’s a snoozefest. The news of the fashion show’s cancellation was first revealed by Victoria’s Secret Angel, Shanina Shaik, during an interview. Unfortunately the Victoria’s Secret show won’t be happening this year, she revealed.
No other details were given, but the cancellation comes on the heels of controversial comments by one of the executives that sent the company into a tailspin. Last November, Chief Marketing Officer Ed Razek gave a horrendous interview to Vogue, expressing intolerance toward both plus-size and trans models. The comments led to the resignation of the company’s top executive, Jan Singer, as well as the shuttering of a number of retail stores.
The dwindling ratings of the televised fashion show led to producers pulling the airing completely, citing a memo that said, we have decided to re-think the traditional Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Going forward we don’t believe network television is the right fit. However, only months later it was revealed the show was done completely.
VS has not offered any explanation for what they plan to do next, but obviously have not had any discussions with influential models, like Upton. Although Upton never walked the runway for Victoria’s Secret, she did model for the catalog back in 2012
