Bonnie Asks: Why Has Victoria's Secret Abandoned Luscious Curvy Angels & Turned To Scary Skinnies?

This week Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel scared us with her new tiny, emaciated- looking figure. But a look at current Victoria’s Secret models reveals a whole batch of more scary skinnies.

It used to be that you could count on the Victoria’s Secret Angels to be the healthy, sexy opposites of the pin thin coat hangers that sadly fashion designers have been using on the fashion show runways.

When super models like Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, Rebecca Romjin, Karolina Kurkova, Adriana Lima, Bar Rafaeli and Gisele, ruled the Victoria’s Secret catalogues and fashion shows, they more than filled out their all-important bras.

The Victoria’s Secret Angels used to be synonomous with vavoom sex appeal.

Now, the ranks of Victoria’s Secret models are filled with a whole gaggle of pencil thins that come close to competing in scary skinniness with Candice Swanepel, who once was appealingly voluptuous.

Just take a look at the gallery of photos above showcasing these new stick Angels – Chanel Iman, Lindsay Ellingson, Lily Alderidge, and Erin Hetherton, compared to the full- figured former Angels.

My question is — what is Victoria’s Secret thinking? Most women aspire to have the sexy curves and fuller-breasted figures of the traditional Angels? Why would the brand chose to go super skinny?

What do you think HollywoodLifers? Which Angels do you prefer – curvy or skinny?
