Since the official Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show model list was released, we have been trying to figure out why Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne didn’t make the cut. It has been reported that both bombshells have actually turned down the Victoria’s Secret angel offer to pursue an opportunity to be part of the Chanel show instead. Since the two events are going to take place at the same time, both Jenner and Delevingne opted for Karl Lagerfeld’s team to present his Métiers d’Art collection at the Hotel Schloss Leopoldskron in Salzburg, Austria.
An insider revealed that both Jenner and Delevingne were in demand by both top brands due to their curvy and attractive figures. “VS looks for curvier girls and bigger names,” the insider told the New York Post. “For most models, you either fit into one category or another.” The two reportedly opted to walk for Chanel as the brand’s reputation is unsurpassable.
However, Jenner has previously walked in the Chanel fashion show last year and she has stated that being a Victoria’s Secret Angel is one of her biggest dreams. Don’t get us wrong, walking the Chanel runway is a HUGE accomplishment, but we can’t help feel a little disappointed both models won’t be attending the Victoria Secret runway as a surprise like we had hoped. Either way, both Kendall and Cara can do no wrong which ever fashion show they choose to be a part of — s0, congratulations girls!
