Cara Delevingne shuts down report she was called ‘bloated’
LONDON Cara Delevingne has hit back at a British newspaper that claimed she was too “bloated” to walk 2014 Victoria’s Secret show. The Sun published the (since deleted) article on 30 Oct.
Delevingne hit out at the tabloid in an Instagram post on Friday in which she shared an image of a letter sent to her by Victoria’s Secret’s fashion show executive producer Edward Razek.
Delevingne captioned the letter with the comment: “It’s shameless to discuss women’s bodies just to sell papers.”
“Victoria’s Secret rarely comments on tabloid gossip, but this week’s article in British paper The Sun regarding you and the 2014 Victoria’s Secret fashion show is a complete fabrication,” read the letter from Razek.
Razek contested the claims made by the newspaper, clarifying that Delevingne had been the first model invited to take part in the show and had “enthusiastically” confirmed her participation.
“Contrary to The Sun’s claims, which they never bothered to fact check with me, Victoria’s Secret made every effort to have you in the London show. I know, because I was the one making the effort. As a matter of fact, you were the first person invited, months ahead of everyone else,” Razek wrote.
Razek noted that scheduling conflicts were in fact the reason for Delevingne’s absence from the show.
“The sole reason you ultimately couldn’t join us was the movie you were shooting in North Carolina. It quite understandably couldn’t accommodate your absence,” Razek stated.
The Sun did not immediately respond to Mashable‘s request for comment.
