Kendall, Gigi, and Bella aren’t on this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show cast list
Rumors of a failed Hailey Baldwin audition persist, too
by Amanda Ross
Kendall Jenner and Gigi and Bella Hadid's collective presence at last year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was a divisive one.
Some slammed the trio of well-connected celebrity off-spring as recipients of nepotism, Instagram models who used their famous families to score real gigs. Some (a lot!) loved it. Some were more into The Weeknd. Whatever. Different strokes for different folks.
Whatever your opinion of the it-girls, their absence on the just-released list of models walking in this year's VSFS is causing something of a stir.
While it's entirely possible they just haven't been confirmed yet, VS never puts out a list that isn't finalized. The only models who don't go on the widely-distributed list are the VS Angels. And while the three are definitely draws for the televised show, the likelihood of inking a commitment-heavy Angel contract one season in is slim.

The most fun and nerve racking experience of my life but I wish I could do it over and over and over again!!!!! 🎀🎀Thank you @theweeknd for being the best and most incredible performer on the planet.

Not only are Gigi, Kendall, and Bella not on the list, but neither is their friend and fellow celeb-spawn Hailey Baldwin. We're positive Baldwin auditioned because she was pap'd walking into the casting office, but it seems she wasn't selected. Which is fine because failure makes you stronger, according to every Gatorade commercial ever.
The question remains, though: Why are Kendall, Gigi and Bella (henceforth known as KenGilBe) not on the list? Were they not offered a spot this year? Were they too busy for the show? Did they just not audition? It's entirely possible.
Regardless of the reason for KenGilBe's absence, we reached out to the Victoria's Secret press office for more info.
The fuckboy haircut: An evolutionary timeline through history
Fuckboy hair in every decade
by Allison Sadlier
Fuckboys come in all shapes and sizes…and haircuts. You can totally spot one from a mile away by his faded hairstyle. You know, the guy who has the sides shaved and his hair longer on top. As it turns out, the fuckboy haircut is nothing new. It’s just changed throughout history. So we’ve created the…
‘Bonespiration’ isn’t new, but it’s still pretty damn bad
And Instagram is a terrifying host for it
by Caroline Phinney
Eating disorders are not new, and thus it stands to reason that neither are the communities of people online encouraging one another to stay sick.In 2012, a number of social media platforms like Tumblr and Instagram began banning the use of tags that could promote such disorders, like #thinspiration and #thinspo.But what those platforms didn't…
Eyebrow waxing is a scam, sorry!
Somebody has to say it
by Katie Way
Maintaining your eyebrows is a labor of love akin to keeping an orchid alive or baking a soufflé. They require a delicate touch, and one wrong move can lead to disaster: dead flower, collapsed pastry, fucked-up 'brows. 'Since nobody is born with a Cara Delevingne situation going on (honestly, Cara probably wasn't either), which means…
