Remember when Adriana and Ale did that Brasilian show that wasn't supposed to be a lingerie show but looked suspiciously like one (replete with wings)? VS asked the girls to not be a part of that tour anymore. I wonder if there is the same restriction on a show like Etam? Not sure what Lais' angel status is. But there were several (Liu Wen, Isebali, Edita) who are VS regulars, too. Would this affect future casting?

I highly highly doubt it because the girls in the Etam show aren't VS Angels. For instance, walking in the VSFS for Liu Wen is just like any other runway show as she doesn't have any type of contract or history doing their print work.
Isabeli and Edita have done tons of swim and lingerie work throughout their career and it doesn't seem to affect their relationship with VS.

Etam is also only available outside the US--only in Europe. VS is primarily American. Behati shot the Princesse Tam Tam (French lingerie) campaign two seasons ago and also did the Seafolly (Australian swimwear) campaign. Candice has shot plenty of non-American swimwear campaigns recently. A lot of times these exclusivity contracts are bound to the regions where the company profits from sales.

Well, Etam show was awkward, but lingerie itself was like million times better then what VS gives us. VS doesn't show almost anything new, just same super push-up bras painted in different colors, the rest are just costumes.
Of course, fashion shows aren't supposed to be ''all for wearing'', but there has to be something you could buy! And by saying ''something'', I mean something more then those 5 models of bra.. painted in different colors. Seems that their main purpose is to sell just the idea - ''if you wear our lingerie, you will look as perfect as our models''. Well, not everyone will believe this.
And so there are around ten bras from Etam in my closet, zero from VS ... and I'm a huge fan of lingerie, and lingerie shows...

^^ That's Victoria's Secret for ya. It's polyester/synthetic/elastane blend heaven. It's really not luxury lingerie as they try to make it seem and I feel sorry for anyone who thinks it is.

Etam is mid-range French lingerie...but the French have a history with lingerie and lace. Victoria's Secret is all about variations on the t-shirt bra...an American thing. They recently released some unlined lacey bras but the construction is nothing more than a nylon mesh sling for the breasts!

With European brands, you'll more likely see lacey, see through type bras, better constructed underwires, different types of constructions (2 part, 3 part, 4 part, 5 part, quarter cut, half cup, 3/4 cut, demi cut, balconette, full coverage etc). It's real design and the really good brands will experiment with lace and fabrics.

But yes, the Etam show was horribly horribly awkward.

The models in the video are: Candice Swanepoel, Erin Heatherton and Cris Urena.

You embed the video by putting the video code/ID (usually it is the set of letters & numbers after the "v=" in the long url) between the YouTube code. In this case it would be (without the spaces):
[ yt ] kHL2JJZaI0A [ /yt ]

The results should be...

This picture clearly shows that VS is not comfortable yet with exposing Karlie's body.

A bit of a problem when you are supposed to be selling LINGERIE and SWIM.

^Or they are trying to show a variety of swim products to entice the public to shop, which is the whole point of these events and VS.

Yes, conveniently on Karlie 'no hips' Kloss. She's getting the Chanel Iman VSFS treatment with not showing torso.

Clearly they put it on her to avoid bad press.

I'm kinda agree with you...and yes, probably covering up her body could be because she has no the vavaboom body as her partners... but otherwise, on TV motion, she was glowing and captivating, definitely there were moments where she outshined Candice and Aless.imo

edit: Karlie has the "it" factor but i don't find out the proper words to explain it.

This pretty much. I was hoping for the best though.

Karlie is just so much taller than others, if anything VS should put more thought on how do they photograph their models with each other, not how their bodies look like, they`re just fine. That shot looks more odd and goofy than hot and sultry. As individuals they are all gorgeous on their own way.
