Ok ... sometimes you just don't make the cut ... no matter how fabulous you are!
While filming in Prague for the Victoria's Secret Dream Angels commercial (the one promoting the 2011 VS Holiday collection) Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio was captured in some beautiful behind-the-scene photos. From some online sources it seems that the pink lingerie against the bright red background did not match the outdoor footage of the other models featured in the commercial who wore whites, blues and purples. For the sake of overall commercial aesthetics, Ale's footage was cut out.
Hmmmm ... I wonder how that decision affected her paycheck. Seems to not be a set back at all for this lovely goddess since for the 2012 Victoria's Secret fashion show, she received the highest honor of wearing the annual million dollar bra worth 2.5 million dollars! You win some, you lose some.
The Toronto store's grand opening was held on October 28, 2010 and since then Victoria's Secret has opened up a total of 16 Victoria's Secret boutiques throughout Toronto, Ontario in Canada with an additional 7 locations in Alberta. I guess the ladies in Canada welcomed Victoria's Secret with open arms. What a successful expansion in such a short period of time. In 2013, Victoria's Secret has a total of 28 stores in Canada.
