Cara Delevingne NOT Rejected By Victoria’s Secret, Despite Report
Cara Delevingne was NOT rejected by Victoria’s Secret, despite a report. Gossip Cop can bust this claim.
According to The Sun, Victoria’s Secret executives rejected the British model back in 2014, after two years of starring in their runway show, allegedly labeling her as “fat” and “bloated.” The British newspaper claims the “infamously vicious panel” is notoriously difficult for aspiring models, with a so-called “source” telling the outlet, “They are famously strict, if you let go even a little, then they don’t want you.”
But this alleged incident with Delevinge never happened, and the model herself is helping set the record straight. On Friday, she posted an Instagram photo showing a letter from Edward Razek, the fashion show’s executive producer. “Contrary to the The Sun‘s claims, which they never bothered to fact check with me, Victoria’s Secret made every effort to have you in the London show,” Razek wrote. “I know, because I was the one making the effort. As a matter of fact, you were the first person invited, months ahead of anyone else.”
Razek continued, “The sole reason you ultimately couldn’t join us was the movie you were shooting in North Carolina. It quite understandably couldn’t accommodate your absence. We tried hard to have you there. You would have made the show better, as you do anything and everything you’re involved in.”
In the post’s caption, Delevingne wrote, “it’s shameless to discuss women’s bodies just to sell papers #bloated.” Gossip Cop couldn’t agree more.
