Victoria's Secret announced on Wednesday that they will be phasing out the "Angels." According to the head of the new lingerie brand they're no longer "culturally relevant."
The "Angels" will be replaced by the "VS Collective," a group of seven women that includes United States women's national soccer team star Megan Rapinoe.
From Yahoo Sports:
As the brand's new head told The New York Times, it's a change that has been a long time coming:
“When the world was changing, we were too slow to respond,” said Martin Waters, the former head of Victoria’s Secret’s international business who was appointed chief executive of the brand in February. “We needed to stop being about what men want and to be about what women want.”
Waters told the Times that Victoria's Secret's famous "Angels," quite possibly the most recognizable group of supermodels in the world, will be phased out, saying he doesn't see them as being "culturally relevant."
RIP Victoria's Secret Angels.
It's a sad day for those of us who enjoyed the outrageous shows they used to put on. Here's a diamond encrusted bra walk down memory lane with some of the best from the Angels.
