Victoria's Secret executive states that the company has 'no plan to stop working with' Miranda.
Miranda Kerr is not out as Victoria's Secret angel. Contrary to reports saying that the company no longer needs her service, Victoria's Secret chief marketing officer Ed Razek says that the lingerie company has "no plans to stop working with her." Razek continues, "In fact, I've already invited her to walk the runway in this year's fashion show and, happily, she's agreed."
Razek also describes the mother of 2-year-old Flynn as "one of the best models in the history of the business - and easily one of the most popular." He adds, "She is also a consummate professional. Any rumors to the contrary are simply untrue. While her international commitments have kept her away from us more than we'd like over the past few years, she will always be an Angel to me."
Reports emerged on Wednesday, April 10, saying that Victoria's Secret did not renew Miranda's $1 million contract because the wife of Orlando Bloom "has a difficult reputation." A source told PEOPLE, "She can be difficult at shoots and appearances." The source also said that Miranda was "not very timely" and "standoffish with the rest of the girls."
The source added, "If Miranda and Victoria's Secret part ways it's not because of her behavior. It's purely contractual. She'll be coming back for the show but it's unclear if she'll be in future campaigns. But she is definitely one of the most popular models and in high demand."
In addition, another source said that Miranda and Victoria's Secret would part ways because she was "not a big seller for VS" compared to other angels such as Candice Swanepoel and Alessandra Ambrosio. "They can still use her for catalogue, where she will get a day rate, but she doesn't have to be an Angel to do that," the source said.
