Karlie Kloss says she decided to clip her Victoria’s Secret Angel wings in a recent interview with Vogue UK. The model shares that she felt that the role did not give out “the kind of message I want to send to young women.” She adds, “I decided to stop working with Victoria’s Secret as I didn’t feel it was an image that was truly reflective of who I am and the kind of message I want to send to young women around the world about what it means to be beautiful.”

Karlie walked the VS runway from 2011 to 2014 before taking a three-year hiatus. She returned to the VS stage for the last time in 2017.

Just after Christian Dior's Haute Couture presentation in Paris, Maria Grazia Chiuri was lauded with the Legion d’Honneur award, France's highest civilian award, as recognition of her work at Dior, which was deemed as a great contribution to French culture. Maria is known for her feminist roots that was showcased in the maison's collections since her appointment as Dior's creative director. Marlène Schiappa, the French secretary of equality between women and men, presented the award to Maria, and praised the designer. "Feminism, that word which has too often been rejected, is making a comeback, largely thanks to you," she says. The minister added, "Convinced that fashion is a political act, you are careful to reflect your values in each of your designs, and under your leadership, fashion shows are turning into fascinating conversations between fashion, art, culture, activism and feminism."
