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.

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.
Why is Forever 21 the most stressful store in the mall?
Y’all know EXACTLY what I’m talking about
by Una Dabiero
The shopping mall is the watering hole of basically every small-to-mid-size town I've ever been to. And before you call me fucking LAME, sorry I haven't been to Dubai or some cool shit. It's the first place your mom drops you off at alone. It's where you go on your first dates in high school.…

I won't lie to you guys — I've always been way too much of a pussy to dye my hair. But every summer, I think about it. Like, heavy. I spend hours digging around beauty Insta looking for the perfect colors. I send pics down the group chats. Sometimes I even text my mom about…
I don’t make the rules: Being a horse girl is cool now
Damn, I fucked up
by Una Dabiero
There was a time in our very modern history in which being a horse girl was not cool. In fact, the horse girl was probably the girl you avoided like the fucking bubonic plague as an emotionally underdeveloped middle schooler. You know, because all her school supplies were covered in live-action horses and she carried…
