Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Returning to New York

After a two-year trip abroad — to Paris and then Shanghai — the extravaganza and hype machine that is the Victoria’s Secret fashion show is returning to New York.
In a series of posts to Instagram Monday, the brand touted: “Start spreading the news…the #VSFashionShow is back in New York City!” The posts pictured the brand’s “angels” toting their wings about town, hailing a cab, emerging from the subway and passing through Grand Central Terminal.
Together the three posts racked up 1,400 comments in just a few hours — illustrating the reach of the event, which is preparing for its 23rd outing.
For the 2016 production in Paris, the brand imported 70 tons of equipment, 18 miles of cable and 51 of the world’s top models.
Last year, the show ran into other complications in Shanghai, when visas were denied to Katy Perry, reportedly after her perceived support for Taiwan, and Gigi Hadid and others.
Having the show in New York should avoid those kinds of difficulties, but the big question for the business is whether the show can help bring some vigor back to the brand, which has been casting about for direction and looking to reverse a trend of sales declines in its stores.

Queen Victoria’s First Christmas: A Politically Incorrect Jamaican Footnote


2017-01-10-1484075325-9770156-26889513348266741.jpg
PRINCESS VICTORIA by Johann Georg Paul Fischer, 1819
Royal Collection Trust

With the premier of the PBS Masterpiece series, VICTORIA, airing on the 15th, it would be remiss of me if I did not point out that the occasion had been quietly celebrated at the manor of Woolbrook Cottage* in Devon.


2017-01-10-1484065971-7304309-beautiesofsidmou00butc_00061.jpg

Internet Archive beautiesofsidmou00butc

Woolbrook was the home of Anne, the only child of the Cators in the group portrait below and her husband, Edward Baynes, Major General of the armed forces in British North America during the War of 1812. Barely a month later, however, the spirit of the Holiday season turned to grief when the Duke of Kent, the father of the infant princess, succumbed to a cold and died of pneumonia on January 23rd, 1820.

*Now the Royal Glen Hotel

Hidden in plain sight at the Aberdeen Art Gallery in Scotland is the singular target of the most breathtaking art heist in history. But unlike the much-touted 1990 Gardner Museum robbery in Boston, this one takes the cake not only for the sophistry of its conception but the brazen presumption of the perpetrators that their actions were for the well-being of the international black community.

It will undoubtedly come as something of a shock to most that the sitters in this picture of such frightfully aristocratic elegance were the grandchildren of Mary Augier, a black Jamaican slave woman.

What has stunned the academic world as well as the media, however, is the realization that the Morses had risen rather easily, indeed, even arrogantly so, from the state of slavery to the upper echelons of British society and influence in full view of the public. The fact that they did not have to “pass” and that papa’s money proved to be all that was needed to “deconstruct” or “interrogate” the victimization paradigm that dominates, even sabotages the discourse on race is what has made this picture so intolerable in certain scholarly circles.

Considering how many more such Jamaican family histories have since come to light, certainly this one should prove a joyful revelation to viewers on both sides of “the pond,” considering what it could contribute towards the racial peace, equality and harmony which for which we strive especially at this time of the year.


2017-01-10-1484067168-4550913-ABD_AAG_ag0030181.jpg
The MORSE AND CATOR FAMILIES by Johan Zoffany, 1784
Aberdeen Art Gallery

Sitting beside Anne Frances Augier Morse, the grandmother of the Hon. Henry Arthur Herbert of Muckross, Lord Lieutenant of Kerry, Ireland, is her sister, Sarah, the wife of John Cator seen standing. Their brother, Robert, is playing the cello. Similar to the relationship of their mother’s first cousin, the Hon. Frances Duff, to the Royal Family today through the Earls of Fife, Sarah was the great, great grand aunt of Elizabeth Margaret Cator who married the Hon. Michael Claude Hamilton Bowes Lyon, the brother of the “Queen Mum” in 1928.

Because it also demonstrates the relationship of this, at the time, well-known family “of color” to Queen Victoria, it should also be noted that Anne Cator Baynes, was first cousin, on the Jamaican side, to Louisa Middleton, the mother the Hon. Henry Arthur Herbert, at whose architectural masterpiece, Muckross House, Queen Victoria stayed for two days during her state visit to Ireland in 1861.

Herbert, in turn, was the uncle of Maj. General, Sir Herbert Stewart (great grandson of the 7th Earl of Galloway on his father’s side), who became the Aide de Camp to the Queen in 1882. His son, Capt. Geoffrey Stewart of the Coldstream Guards, also served the Queen as her Page of Honour. Between his sisters and his nieces, this branch of the Herberts intermarried with the Earls of Bantry, Dartrey, Minto and Ferrers as well as the Guinnesses.

Since so many of this echelon were integral members of Britain’s wealthiest and most politically influential strata of society, how could this phenomenon not have had an enabling or, at least, mitigating effect on the circumstances of their still enslaved relatives living in the Caribbean?

Herbert’s grandnephews are examples of how such individuals, in their attempts to shape or influence the development of the Nation’s imperial power and ambitions along the lines of their own interracial identities, made careers for themselves in the colonial service. Sir Hubert Edward Henry Jerningham KCMG JP DL, for instance, was Member of Parliament for Berwick, Colonial Secretary for British Honduras, Lieutenant Governor of Mauritius and Governor of Trinidad and Tobago. Sir Wasey Sterry, CBE, served with the Foreign Service in both the Sudanese and Egyptian judiciary. It would be interesting to learn what part his African ancestry played in his marriage to the granddaughter of Princess Wishan of the Tewodros Imperial Dynasty of Ethiopia.

A great many more of this West Indian ‘ilk’, a majority of them Oxbridge educated, served as high-ranking officials in either the military or overseas government bureaucracies not only in Africa and the West and East Indies, but in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, to boot.

Indeed, it could be argued that the very complexity and apparently contradictory nature of these familial situations is what in many ways led not only to the cohesiveness, but the actual expansion of British influence in global affairs during the late 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.

BLACK LIVES MATTER, especially those on whose narratives the PC Police in both academia and the media have slapped an embargo.

As remarkable a breakthrough as this one has been, it is all too obvious that what could be obtained from several hundred others would barely scratch the surface of this potential subject, and an entire corpus of colonial and racial history will now have to be re-evaluated. What the process could contribute to a far more “empowering narrative” in comparison to the preconceptions and stereotypes so many academics and media pundits push like bad drugs, is as unimaginable to the general public as the saga of the Jamaican Augiers has been until now.

Lady Gaga Wore A $1 Million Hat At The Victoria’s Secret Show

Looking for a winter hat? This probably isn’t it. 

Lady Gaga, hat girl extraordinaire, performed at the the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show wearing a couple of beautiful outfits and a hat worth ONE MILLION DOLLARS.

Yes, that’s right. This one-of-a-kind hat embellished with over 45,000 Swarovski crystals is worth the same amount as these homes or 25,000 of these hats from Zara

The “Million Reasons” singer not only wore said hat but lifted it up off her head like it was some kind of play toy, and held it off to the side in an act of sheer bravery.

The hat was made custom by Gladys Tamez, who has worked quite a bit with Gaga recently on all the hats surrounding the launch of her album “Joanne,” including the iconic pink look from the album’s cover.

According to a release from the brand, the hat is “an homage to the million dollar fantasy bra” and “took 300 hours of labor by 10 craftspeople.”

We’d say a round of Applause is in order for them, no?

Victoria’s Secret Model Writes Powerful Letter About Consent

Leomie Anderson is on a mission to empower young women to say “No.”

The Victoria’s Secret model posted an impassioned personal letter, “An Open Letter About Consent And Saying No,” on her website on Sunday, which which addresses sexting, and the pressures some young women feel to go along with requests for nude pictures.

Anderson wrote that she wanted to have a “heart to internet” conversation with her young readers.

“With the uncontrollable rise of social media and mixed messages that young people are exposed to, more and more young girls are falling victim to being pressured to do things and having their most intimate moments shared on the Internet,” she wrote. 

She also touched on her career as a model — and how lucky she is to work for  an agency she knows will support her saying “no” to any shoot she feels uncomfortable about. Anderson also acknowledged, though, that younger women don’t often have this kind of support, or feel like they can’t say “no” without being judged. 

“I know so many girls who felt pressured into sending a picture or doing something with a boy because they liked him or believed him when he said he wouldn’t show or tell anybody and ended up the topic of tutor time,” she wrote. 

The letter is an empowering reminder to young women that there is absolutely nothing wrong with that powerful two-letter word:

Saying NO doesn’t make you scared or frigid, it makes you smart and mature — you never want someone to be able to hold something against you or expose you. So please, all my young girls reading this, know that you don’t have to do anything that you aren’t fully comfortable with and that your NO means something.

Anderson has a track record of awesomeness: She is incredibly engaged with her community of fans and followers online, and has used her website to empower the young black women in the fashion industry. Check out more of her work here

Gigi Hadid’s Reaction to Not Being in the Victoria’s Secret Show Will Make You Love Her Even More

Before the Victoria’s Secret runway show this December, I would’ve put money on Gigi Hadid showing up. She’s gorgeous, has a great bod, and is liable to go viral. When she wasn’t confirmed to walk, I was seriously surprised (though she’s since been named as a face of Pink). Then yesterday, while reading this awesome interview Lauren from the celeb team did with Gigi’s mom (and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star) Yolanda Foster, I found out that Gigi totally wanted to be in the show and was bummed not to book it.


A photo posted by Gigi Hadid (@gigihadid) on

“Gigi worked so hard to get the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and she didn’t get it. But you know what? That’s just life. She was sad,” Yolanda told Lauren. “She was boxing at Gotham gym every day and in great shape, and it seemed like a perfect fit. But you know what? It ended up not to be. And rather than go, ‘Oh, I’m so sorry,’ I said, ‘Hey, Gigi, that’s life, baby. We’re not always going to get what we want, and this is not a rejection of you, Gigi, as a human being. This is just redirection for you into something that’s going to be much bigger.’ She looked at me like, ‘What do you mean?’ And I go, ‘If it’s meant to be, it’ll happen at another time. It wasn’t meant to happen today.'”

So, firstly, I adore Yolanda and think she lives every inch of her life with so much grace—this whole exchange is parenting 101 if you ask me. Beyond that, I love how real-girl Gigi’s response to not getting the show was. She was bummed, pure and simple, but didn’t throw any diva moves or get angry. Instead of a spoiled celebrity response, she reminded me of myself and all my girlfriends who have had an experience of not getting a job, acceptance letter, or role in the ballet production (OK, that’s personal).

Are you as impressed by Gigi’s low-key response as I am? Can you remember not getting something you really wanted?

Forget Ladylike—Taylor Swift Wants to Dress Like a Victoria’s Secret Angel

If you watched the Victoria’s Secret show last night, you must have noticed the chemistry between Taylor Swift and the models. It’s more than just showmanship, too—she fits in like one of the girls and is such real-life besties with Karlie Kloss, the two started dressing alike. Tay’s got a pretty well defined style that heavily draws on ladylike, retro-inspired pieces (an argument’s even been made that the high-waisted bikini is her signature piece), but I’d like to submit some photos as evidence for my argument that, actually, Miss Swift would like nothing more than to let her inner Victoria’s Secret Angel out to play.

taylor-swift-backless-white-dress-one-chance-premiere-2013
There’s the backless white dress she picked for the One Chance premiere that not only flashed some sexy spine, but cut inward so the effect was visible from the front.
taylor-swift-crop-top-red-skirt-i-heart-radio-2014
The strapless crop top and skirt combo is just tiny enough to step into Angel territory. Also lingerie-model-worthy? The faux tan that shows off her bod in the best way possible.
taylor-swift-blue-sequin-mini-dress-billboard-music-awards-2013
Super sparkles, super short, and with triangular sheer pieces at the neckline. Yep, that’s a bombshell dress if I ever saw one.
taylor-swift-black-sheer-crochet-dress-gold-globes-afterparty-2014
Crochet and cutout sections combined for a super steamy afterparty dress (that, not for nothing, must have also been way comfy).
taylor-swift-gold-mini-dress-amas-2013
And the pièce de résistance, when Taylor really went for it. It’s way shiny, strapless and short, and she even kept her hair down. I love daring hemlines, but it makes me question when she said “I don’t want to wear something so short that I’m scared there will be a wardrobe malfunction.” Because, honey, that’s short.

Do you so often think of Taylor in ’50s-style dresses and skirts that you forget she’s rocked some seriously sexy items?

No, The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Isn’t Bad for Teen Girls

“Wait, you WATCH that?”

Last night was the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in London, where 47 models, including the famed Victoria’s Secret Angels, strutted the runway in a immense spread of fairytale undergarments. They’ve done it every year for nearly 20 years (I’ve been watching since I was 12), and every year, that runway goes right into a pile of people who don’t like it and don’t think I, a teenage girl, should either.

When I look at the Victoria’s Secret Angels, I see gorgeous, happy women, who work for a company that sticks with many of them for the long haul — a rarity in this industry. Sure, they’re thin, but they’re not fragile — they’re toned. I mean, legs like that don’t come from eating carrot sticks and water. They look like they really enjoy what they do. I mean, who wouldn’t? I’d like to try and frown when I’m strapped into that much sparkling wing acreage. Watching the show is a glimpse into their world. You get these little moments that are usually confined to the pages of a catalogue or a six-foot poster in your mall. Taylor Swift sings a song that perfectly describes your life in the background, and Hozier smizes at you (and everyone else watching, but it was a special moment). It’s a fun fantasy. That’s why it bothers me so much when people use it as a negative factor in the body image conversation, especially targeted at teenage girls.

I’m a 17-year-old girl. A lot of people would tell you that puts me in the prime “issues with her body” range. I shouldn’t be inspired by these charismatic and successful women and their amazing careers in an industry they love. Because I enjoy the show, I’m obviously some sort of bimbo who doesn’t understand that I’m being negatively influenced, and that everything they do is fake and that they’re just famous for looking good in underwear. I shouldn’t appreciate the hard work it takes to do what they do and attempt to emulate that work ethic. I most certainly should not feel serious confidence and girl power after watching them do their thing for an hour in beautiful underwear. I should probably be looking at them and comparing my ankles to theirs, and be trying to stretch my spine three inches, and destroying myself in a gym attempting to recreate their abs. I should feel incomplete, like I am not measuring up. My self-confidence should be shattered every time Karlie’s faces beams at me while I sit on my couch eating kettle corn. I shouldn’t feel content with my body and the way I am, because I don’t look like these Angels. Or at least, that’s what the media is telling me and other girls (and boys) my age and beyond. If they’re telling you that too, let me give you a piece of advice: ignore it. I say this thing a lot because it applies to a lot of things, including loving the Victoria’s Secret Angels: If you love it, own it. Taylor Swift agrees with me on this. (Probably.)
