Even though Cara Delevingne hasn’t graced the runway during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show since 2013, that could totally change now that she has an open invitation to rock the catwalk! She took to Instagram to share the news in response to a bogus report that claimed she was too ‘bloated’ to make the cut for the 2014 show. Read the touching statement here.
Cara Delevingne, 24, is setting the record straight! A new report in The Sun claimed that the major model, who graced the runway in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2012 and 2013 in NYC, was cut from the 2014 London catwalk because she was too “bloated” — but that clearly wasn’t the case. In fact, in the 2014 announcement Ed Razek, CMO of Victoria’s Secret and Executive Producer of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, even gushed about how he personally let Cara in on the secret before the move was initially announced! He said: “I told Cara a few days ago and asked her to save the date, so hopefully she will walk. She was excited. And she kept the secret for a whole week!”
Unfortunately, when Dec. 2, 2014 rolled around, Cara was not on the catwalk for Victoria’s Secret — but it definitely wasn’t because they turned her down. Not only was she in the middle of filming Paper Towns, but she also walked in the Chanel Métiers d’Art show in Austria.
The model broke her silence regarding the shameful, false report on Instagram, posting a photo of a personal letter penned by Ed in response to the report along with the following caption: “It’s shameless to discuss women’s bodies just to sell papers #bloated.”

That’s not all! Ed made it clear that Cara would always have a place on the Victoria’s Secret runway whenever she decides she wants to return to the catwalk. Do you think Cara should take Ed up on the invitation and strut her stuff on the Victoria’s Secret runway?! We could only hope! If she does decide to walk in the show, she’ll be in good company as her modeling friends, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, are also gearing up for the big day. The 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will mark the second time the gals were featured on the catwalk. Gigi’s little sister, Bella, will be making her debut in the big show as it heads to Paris for the very first time.
Be sure to tune into CBS on Dec. 5 to watch all the action, right on the runway, and check back for more updates from the show!
