After sharing her thoughts on Taylor Swift's performance at the November 13th Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, Jessica Hart got quite a bit of no-so-positive attention. Hart told WWD: “No… God bless her heart. I think she’s great… But I don’t know, to me, she didn’t fit.” Legions of Swift fans were none too pleased, but according to the New York Post, neither is VS.
No one will say so, but 27-year-old Australian beauty Jessica Hart will no longer be used as a model for Victoria’s Secret after she dissed Taylor Swift, who performed on the runway in a leg-baring outfit during the lingerie giant’s Nov. 13 fashion show.
Five days later, Hart — who, unlike Miranda Kerr and Karlie Kloss, is not one of the company’s elite “supermodels” — tried to make amends, telling Us Weekly, “I adore Taylor Swift and I was so excited to be with her at the Victoria Secret Fashion Show… She is a true rock star and she absolutely killed it the other night.”
But the damage was done. Sources say execs at Victoria’s Secret are furious, and won’t be inviting Hart to walk in next year’s show. The gorgeous blonde also won’t be seen in the brand’s upcoming catalogs.
We'll be keeping our eyes on upcoming VS work to see if the rumour is true. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: Victoria’s Secret President and Chief Marketing Officer Edward Razek released a statement:
“There is no truth to the rumors that Jessica Hart has been fired or that she will no longer work with the brand. As you will see, she was a great part of our show and we look forward to continuing to work with her. As previously reported, we at Victoria’s Secret and all those involved, including Jessica Hart, were thrilled to have Taylor be a part of the show. We look forward to sharing her performances next week during the television special.”
