Memo to VS | Sophia Neophitou on Kate Upton Nastygram Gaining Traction

We have no word if Victoria's Secret Fashion Show casting director Sophia Neophitou got off her snooty woman perch in London to attend any Oscar parties last night. But Kate Upton was there, looking particularly fabulous.

VS has always believed that there's no such thing as bad publicity -- and of course they know best. Our page reads on my delayed response to Neophitou's negative comments that Victoria's Secret would never use Kate Upton in the annual fashion show because she looks like a Page 3 (The Sun in London) footballer's wife are through the roof.

Readers caused me to respond again this morning to the insult as part of a larger fashion industry woman hate issue. Misogyny expresses itself in many forms and women like Sophia Neophitou perpetuate it, right along with Karl Lagerfeld.

I love Kate's response that Gisele is a footballer's wife, which puts her in good company. The Kaiser's most recent flap focused on his first response to questions about Adele's talent, saying she's too fat. Like Kate Upton, Adele told her fashion monasticism critic where to stuff his commentary about her weight.

If the executives at Victoria's Secret assume that the insults cast Kate's way will die down, they are probably right. But today the whole story is gaining major momentum and yesterday it was the biggest story in the history of Anne of Carversville.

My thoughts this morning on Sophia Neophitou's unbelievably haughty and nasty remarks about Upton:

I’ve connected the dots between fashion and flogging since 2007. Top fashion industry stylists like Sophia Neophitou make moral judgement calls on women, just like the Catholic bishops. The whole damn world is fighting over women’s bodies and many of us have just “had it” with fashion monasticism and woman hate from fashion designers like Karl Lagerfeld to stylists like Neophitou to social conservative investors in nonprofit skin care companies.

American women are fighting for our rights to birth control in this country, and Victoria’s Secret is condemning Kate Upton as not their kind of girl. On this subject, I will have to check in with Marilyn, because she fought the same fight, being judged by elitists like Neophitou and condemned by the clergy

Victoria’s Secret may have unintentionally started a rumble here, as even they are condemned indirectly by Republican candidates for president. VS is a leader in what Santorum calls the corruption and secularism of American culture. The candidate literally damned the word 'sensuality'.  I am proud of my 10-year involvement in Victoria’s Secret, in the glory days of building the brand.

If Sophia Neophitou thinks the ideal VS woman is Anja Rubik, this woman Anne says "no way".  Read my thoughts on the stylist's comments to the New York Times in:

Duran Duran 'Girl Panic' Video Is MY Idea of a VS Fashion Show 

Having been a key player in the first two Victoria's Secret fashion shows, I've written that the show really has become a spectacle of questionable substance. I love VS but the show leaves me empty.

But THIS film 'Girl Panic' -- relying on talent not glitter -- is awesome. Note there's plenty of sparkle in Jonas Akerlund's nearly 10-minute feature. Campbell plays frontman Simon Le Bon and was responsible for organizing this incredible ode to Rock 'n Roll. The remaining women are Helena Christensen (Roger Taylor), Eva Herzigova (Nick Rhodes), Cindy Crawford (John Taylor) and Yasmin Le Bon who is keen to point out "I am NOT a member of Duran Duran".

I can't watch these women without thinking of both the phenomenal, totally-empowering supers and their roles at VS. Naomi opened the second VS fashion show in drop-dead black and red drama, part of a group compliments of my work with Chantal Thomass

For the first time, I've found one image of the collection online. Bear with me while we search for more.

That day -- VSFS #2 -- Stephanie Seymour's close the show outfit was a big disappointment, coming from a friend of a VS exec. 24 hours before the show I called a seamstress in Columbus who jumped on an airplane with her portable sewing machine at 6am. We set up shop in Les Wexner's office on Madison, with tulle covering the floor.

VS Lowers PR Volume on Miranda Kerr & Fantasy Treasure Bra

Victoria's Secret has downplayed the introduction of this year's $2.5 million Fantasy Teasure Bra, created exclusively for the world's biggest lingerie brand by London Jewelers.

Miranda Kerr models the diamond and gemstone covered Fantasy Treasure Bra in the Victoria's Secret Christmas Dreams and Fantasies Catalogue and in the upcoming 2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion show, broadcast on CBS on November 29th 10/9C.

Valued at $2.5 million, the Fantasy Treasure Bra is handset with nearly 3400 precious gems, including white and yellow diamonds, pearls, citrines and aquamarines, all set in 18 karat white and yellow gold. The bra is inspired by an underwater dreamland of luxury, exotic glamour and sexy aquatic Angels. The centerpiece tassel is adorned with t wo exquisite white diamonds, over 8 carats each, and two astonishing yellow diamonds, over 14 carats each. Overall, the bra features 142 carats of diamonds.  All of the magnificent gems were embroidered onto Victoria‘s Secret Gorgeous Push-up Bra frame with custom scalloping. The intricate design of the bra required an inspection of over 10,000 stones from around the world to find the perfect colored, sized and shaped gems. Every stone was meticulously hand placed by master craftsmen in 500 hours of skilled work. via DiamondNews

These images show our favorite Russell James behind the lens, with Miranda Kerr being her wonderful, gorgeous, real-woman self. Personally, I'd prefer Miranda as a goddess-rising type, dressed out in the jewelry featured next in Vogue Gioiello.

I find the weight of the VS Angel wings absurd, as a symbol of the pressures women are under in today's world.

Dying in the Weight of Our Wings

Wings that hobble women are a weighty distraction in America, where all Republican candidates for president are prepared to take away a woman's right to birth control through their support of the personhood amendment. Republicans seek to outlaw all forms of abortion and de facto, most forms of birth control along with it.

Victoria's Secret Releases Fashion Show 2011 Sketches

Victoria's Secret has released a sneak peek at three outfit sketches for the upcoming VS Fashon Show on Tuesday November 29th. New mom Miranda Kerr will be returning as a Victoria's Secret Angel, walking the runway with Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Doutzen Kroes, Candice Swanepoel, Erin Heatherton, Lily Aldridge and Lindsay Ellingson.

Anne has been very critical of the evolution of the show -- which is a sensuality-absent, Las Vegas spectacle at this point -- to say nothing of low ratings and an over-50 female audience. We are hopeful that this year's show will showcase true feminine beauty and sensuality, as captured in the Candice Swanepoel image above.

The prolific romantic, Gothic, Phoenix-Rising fashion trends give VS a perfect opportunity to create a moment of enormous beauty and lingerie inspiration on Nov 29. Our fingers are crossed that they deliver.
