Victoria’s Secret CEO: Company Is “Too Sexy”

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 9:13 pm

The CEO of Victoria’s Secret says the company has become “too sexy” for its own good.

Weirdest thing: the CEO is a female. I never would have guessed.

Guys, what do you think? Because this blog does not put up cheesecake photos just for fun, I note for the record that the picture accompanying the L.A. Times article is set forth as an aid to help you evaluate the claim made by this top business executive.

Click more for the picture.

The picture also serves as the springboard for a caption contest, so it serves double duty.

  1. Well! This lovely lady and I have something in common. She’s got hearts on, and…

    On second thought, I don’t want to be on record as saying what you’re already thinking. Shame on you! :)

  2. By the coarseness of the model’s face, I’d say she might be taking HGH. Quick, somebody tell Waxman.

  3. Also, her pecs and lats look testosteroned. Not to mention…..

  4. Sharen Turney is pretty hawt herself. And I’ll bet she gets the employee discount.

  7. Also, I’m aware that the words “too sexy” are english, but I must confess they make no sense to me…

  8. Pat,
    I order for me to form a better opinion on this topic, you need to post a few dozen more photos.

  9. On my bus ride home out of downtown San Francisco, I occasionally see women carrying pink-striped Victoria Secret glossy paper bags. With few exceptions, the women are NOT the type you would like to imagine modeling the outfits.

  10. Mmmmm, tastes like chicken!

  11. Too sexy? Does not compute. That is like having too much fun, a car too fast, a plasma too big, too much money, or being too happy.

  12. A woman like that could kill a man … the lucky guy.

  13. That’s it! I’m convinced “she’s” a transexual, what with affirmative action suits and all.

  14. Hmm… sounds like some of you guys are going to need to de-fog your monitors. Go here for that.

    On a more serious note, it’s not drooling adolescent guys who shop in Victoria’s Secret, and evidently there are still a number of women who have a touch of class. Enough that they aren’t interested in going into a porn shop. They prefer to leave those things within the boundaries of marriage… where they belong.

  15. Her mouth is almost as big as that pair of lips she’s holding up.

  16. What’s the matter with you *guys*? She’s a beautiful girl. She reminds a little of Katherine Ross.

  17. It’s not too sexy, it’s too cumbersome. Sell stuff that is comfortable in bed – soft things that she can cuddle and sleep in after, but that look good and don’t get in the way. Keep the bikini on the beach, it is useless in bed.

  18. With the lips around her…

  19. she’s just hyping her brand, she doesn’t really believe vs is too sexy.

  20. Hey, check out that knife-like sternocleidomastoid – her right neck line. Now that’s just not normal.

  23. Well, the “Model” is really only a picture to begin with.

    J. Peden (27a354)

  24. She swallows. Any complaints?

  25. “She” sucks.

    J. Peden (27a354)

  26. This site is getting way too misogynistic gay.

  27. I work in retail; there is a Victoria’s Secret in our mall. I know plenty of women who shop there; I see plenty of women in the store when I walk by it. I never see a man in there unless he’s with a woman, or(rarely) being led around by a sales associate; and I always see men who wait outside the store waiting for a woman to complete her shopping inside. So the appeal of the store is definitely towards women. So either no sex appeal is involved, or all women are secretly lesbian.

    This has been my contention for some time. :)

  29. Victoria Secrets is going downhill. They resemble a juniors’ market with all this pink crap. Anything I have bought there in the last 3 years has unraveled within two washings. VS looks slutty and cheap now, not slutty and expensive. I don’t shop there anymore.

  33. nk, she’s no Katherine Ross.

  34. Her bellybutton, right? Katherine Ross has an innie not an outie?

    nk (7b0075)

  35. Well, that and the blank vapid look on her face, Katherine Ross would never leave us with that.

  36. Ahh, you haven’t seen the original “The Stepford Wives”.

  37. nk, that was acting!
