Victoria’s Secret is doing both a good thing and kind of a dumb thing by replacing their “Angels” with strong female ambassadors … so says noted Fenty model Slick Woods.

We got Slick — who’s famous for her preggo catwalk in 2018, and giving birth shortly thereafter — out and about Friday night near Hyde in WeHo … this during an UOMA Beauty event by Sharon Chuter. Good setting to talk fashion and sex appeal, no doubt.

We are proud to announce an exciting new partnership platform, #TheVSCollective, designed to shape the future of Victoria’s Secret. @adutakech1 @amandadecadenet @mPinoe @priyankachopra Eileen Gu, Paloma Elsesser, Valentina Sampaio https://t.co/IdYrmLWkPM pic.twitter.com/bd9QMhCz2W

Of course, our cam guy had to bring up VS’s decision to rebrand themselves with new spokeswomen — including Megan Rapinoe and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, among others — while also doing away with their winged models, seemingly for good. Slick’s take is … interesting.

Check out her answer for yourself — at first, she seems to be against the move … wisely noting that, despite all the progress we’ve made as a society, sex sells at the end of the day.

BTW, that’s not necessarily a bad thing either … according to Slick, anyway. She says if you use that primal truth for good causes — like what Victoria’s Secret appears to want going forward — then it’s simply a means to an end. She’s got a great example about getting people’s attention.

We’re not trying to put words in SW’s mouth, but she *seems* to be saying what VS is doing with this new crop of women might not be the most effective way to get asses in seats for their goals big picture, in a manner of speaking. Then comes the curveball.

When we reiterate what exactly is going on with the new campaign, Slick appears to switch up on us … saying yeah, the “Angels” thing is low-key demeaning. Sit on a fence much?!?
