|Yep, that's me about a decade ago.|
Back in the day, (10 years and dozens of pounds ago) I dreamed of one day being a Victoria's Secret model. I know, it sounds like a super vain, unattainable aspiration for a 16 year old, but I dreamed about wearing a pair of wings none the less.
I had my minuscule modeling career already. All I needed was to be discovered by more than just local campaigns and designers.
The women in the VS shows were everything I wanted to be. They had curves, muscle definition, and incredible abs. They had the best hair and always looked super sassy on the runway. They got to trade in their runway scowl for a smile and the occasional dance move. And, lets face it, there isn't a woman that watches the show that doesn't envy them just a little or a man that doesn't drool. The Victoria's Secret model always come across as empowered. She is confident, owns her sensuality and doesn't take things too seriously. Don't we all want to feel like that in our skivvies?
