As much as I love Karlie, I have to agree with this...

^ I agree, but VS have had Anja R walk for them, who knows what they're thinking ?
I love Karlie but she looks so wrong for VS.

Discussions like this are what this whole forum was made for. When someone says something nice about Karlie no one ever says 'Oh this again!' But when someone says something critical about her that some people agree with, Karlie fanatics jump at their throats. Karlie is an amazing model, but her look is best suited for high fashion where she can be more expressive and show off her talent. She doesn't have the assets (meaning boobs) to be selling lingerie and her beauty is not the kind that makes you think 'bombshell' which is what VS is all about.

I totally agree that this forum is made for discussions and expressing different opinions. Personally, I love Karlie as a high fashion model and I think she looks her best when she's doing that. But I wouldn't say she doesn't have the 'assets' for VS. I mean lingerie is mainly for curvier models but I see nothing wrong with VS representing bodytypes such as Karlie's.

^ I agree with you. Lingerie is for all sorts of body types, but in terms of the way VS likes to market itself Karlie just doesn't fit. VS likes to do the whole big hair, pouty lips, cleavage up to your chin look. Certain models fit that mold really well, but for others it just doesn't look right. I wouldn't mind seeing Karlie front a campaign for Agent Provacateur or La Perla both of which have a more elegant look, but when I see Karlie trying to do the whole VS bombshell thing I have to roll my eyes. It's really not meant to be an insult when I say that Karlie doesn't have that type of sex appeal. It's just different strokes.

Yes, but you need understand me. Is veeery boring always start the same topic. I know, Karlie is not good for VS, until even I know. :p

^^I see what you're saying. I really do. But VS thinks she's good for the brand so that's why she gets hired. Maybe it's because she's reached that status in her career where she's everywhere but it doesn't really matter. What matters is that she keeps getting booked. But yeah I do prefer her as a high fashion model.
