A Jane Doe Critique

When we see anything made by Victoria's Secret, all we see is our muffin top cascading over the top of a $50 slingshot (the underwear) and our legs looking like sausage casings in thigh-high stockings. Many of the fashions from the 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show were gorgeous, but to make ourselves feel better, we'll focus on the ones that were... uh... a bust.

Victoria's Secret 2012 Fashion Show

Gone to the dogs

Since when did dressing like a pooch become sexy? If you think this is something your guy would dig on you, we need to talk. Dressing in poodle lingerie is wrong for reasons we can't really get into in this PG-13 platform. The hoop is symbolic of the hoops you are willing to jump through to please your guy. Is he willing to do the same for you? Poodle banana-hammock anyone?

Victoria's Secret 2012 Fashion Show

Holy cow

Again with the animal theme. I'm pretty sure I speak for all women when I say we want lingerie that doesn't make us look like a cow. This poor model looks like the star of an adult movie version of Toy Story (Sex Toy Story, maybe?). That rope will come in handy. You can lasso your guy when he runs for his life after seeing you in this getup.

Luck of the draw?

Not in this case. If you think you're going to get lucky in this shamrock disaster, think again. This poor dear obviously drew the short stick when she had to strut out on the catwalk in this ridiculous costume. The Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas called — it wants its cocktail-waitress uniform back. There is no denying the model in this shamrock disaster is breathtaking, but she has a look on her face that says, "It may be time for a new career path."

Victoria's Secret 2012 Fashion Show

Nymph-oh!

As in "Oh-no"! The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is supposed to be all about fantasy. In comparison to these other designs, this forest nymph look isn't that bad. The bra and undies are cute, the gloves are pretty and those shoes are to die for. But does this model realize she's about to be eaten alive by alien-sized orchids? Ladies, can you imagine trying to fit this thing in the minivan on the way to the soccer field? It's fairly obvious that Victoria has never had kids, ridden in a minivan or eaten a meal with more than 500 calories. Maybe that's her secret!

Why does it matter whether or not an outfit from the show can fit into a minivan? Stop nitpicking the creativity that went into these costumes. If you don't like the shows then don't watch them.

These outfits are always crazy, how else would they make a whole show outta some panties? I agree, you sound as bitter as wormwood. I eat 3000 calories a day(doctor prescribed) and it's hard work! Be glad you're healthy and can keep some fat on.....

1. The leprechaun costume is representing the month of March, they were doing a calender theme. What else would represent the month better? 2. Several of the models have kids, and all eat more than 500 calories a day. You sound like a boring and bitter fat -----. Perhaps you should eat better and workout.
