Supermodel Karlie Kloss says the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show — where models strut down a runway in barely-there lingerie — is “so relevant” in the era of “#MeToo,” a movement of women who say they are fed up with being treated as sexual objects.
In an interview with the Telegraph, Kloss defended the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show as a statement on feminism.
“A show like Victoria’s Secret is so relevant in the world we live in today,” Kloss said. “There’s something really powerful about a woman who owns her sexuality and is in charge.”
“A show like this celebrates that and allows all of us to be the best versions of ourselves,” Kloss tells the outlet. “Whether it’s wearing heels, make-up or a beautiful piece of lingerie – if you are in control and empowered by yourself, it’s sexy. I personally love investing in a powerful scent or piece of lingerie, but I ensure it’s on my terms. I like to set a positive example, so would never be part of something I didn’t believe in.”
