It's no secret that everyone is feeling nostalgic for Victoria's Secret fashion shows and angels. And by everyone, I mean it girls. I know I still love to binge-watch all the shows and see the queen Adriana Lima strut her stuff. We all miss seeing the angels in their group campaigns, but luckily our empty heart has been refilled.
For Skims' latest campaign they brought the big girls in and almost created a modern VS campaign. We got to see Candice Swanepoel, Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, and Alessandra Ambrosio all back in action together. And they did not miss a beat! They reminded the world what a supermodel is, and I am so grateful for that. Only could they age 10 years and look and serve exactly the same.
Kim Kardashian rounded up icons for this shoot, and Alessandra told People, “To be honest, I believe that only others can call someone an icon so I have never thought of myself that way. For me, [an] icon means staying true to yourself and making sure to treat others the way you would like to be treated.”
After this campaign I’m left wondering, has Skims become the new Victoria’s Secret? And if so, I need a fashion show with the angels ASAP. Although I’m not quite sure if the minimal aesthetic of Skims would capture the iconic VS aesthetic. Who knows. But at least for now, I’m satisfied with these killer campaigns.
Oh and I would just like to add a quick personal note: Candice Swanepoel is so hot.
