    A Knoxville man allegedly chose the wrong store — Victoria's Secret in the Kingsport Town Center — and the wrong time — as an off-duty cop was shopping with his girlfriend — to steal 59 pairs of panties and 22 yoga pants. The Scott County officer gave chase after witnessing the suspect dash out with a bag full of the items, valued at $1,329, and apprehended him in the parking lot outside the mall.

    A petition has been launched asking American lingerie giant Victoria's Secret to pull a range of underwear it believes is marketed at pre-teenage girls, which features slogans such as 'Feeling Lucky?' Victoria's Secret says its PINK line is 'for the independent spirit on campus', but its new campaign has angered so many parents that a Facebook page entitled 'Dear Victoria's Secret: Pull "Bright Young Things" and an online petition have been launched. The Bright Young Things campaign ties in with PINK's Spring Break line - the name given to the Easter Holidays in the U.S., but many have interpreted it...

    The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show airs tonight, with an estimated production cost of over $12 million. The show has been criticized for promoting unrealistic beauty, especially since a Limited Brands executive famously told the New York Times that fewer than 100 women worldwide were capable of walking its runway. But many of the models have appeared without makeup, showing what they look like before several stylists have worked their magic. We compiled side-by-side comparisons of some of the most famous Victoria's Secret models with and without makeup. See Tyra Banks, Miranda Kerr, Adriana Lima and more without their makeup. CLICK...

    Hurricane-relief Guardsmen tossed out of armory - for Victoria's Secret show The Victoria’s Secret show must go on — even if it means kicking out hardworking men and women in uniform. Dozens of National Guardsmen, and Army and Air Force personnel who have been sleeping at Manhattan’s Lexington Armory in between hurricane-relief shifts are being booted — to make room for Victoria’s Secret models in anticipation of Wednesday’s runway show. About 300 uniformed personnel have been bunking down at the armory at various times since Sandy hit. But their numbers will be reduced to 60 by Wednesday for the event,...

    Watching this preposterously vapid and slutty Victoria's Secret Fashion Show on CBS and have a few questions. Didn't the libs attack the Miss America Pageant because it supposedly emphasizes women's bodies and physical attractiveness? And CBS is the most liberal of networks with womens libber Leslie Stahl. So here you have an absolutely slutty show, which by the way is an hour long commercial for one fashion line, and hasn't this sort of replaced the Miss Anmerica pageant? And no pretense of any talent by these women except shaking their butts. You just had one of the rap groups (Jay...

Now let me ask a weird hypothetical. If I showed up at the Mall wearing only briefs and say my wife showed up in a minuscule bra and panties we'd likely be dragged from the premises and arrested. And rightly so, especially if you've seen me in briefs. But no matter what, it's bad, right? So why is it OK for some of these stores to have...

Fifteen mothers armed with hungry babies gathered on the sidewalk outside the Crocker Park Victoria's Secret store in Westlake where scantily clad mannequins seemed delighted by the peaceful, half-hour demonstration.

    In an ad that ran this January in a number of newspapers, including The New York Times, a sultry model in a satin bodice and frilly feathered wings stared poutingly from the page. At first glance, it appeared to be an ad for Victoria's Secret -- except, that is, for the wicked-looking chain saw the model was holding and the tagline, which read "Victoria's Dirty Secret." In fact, it was a bold rebuke of the company for using paper from virgin forests to print its catalogs, and just one very public salvo in the many-pronged campaign to call attention to...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Victoria's Secret is dropping its nationally televised fashion show this year, at least partly because of criticism following Janet Jackson's breast-baring faux pas at the Super Bowl. Ed Razek, chief creative officer for the Columbus-based lingerie chain, said Saturday the main reason for the decision was so the company can look at new ways to promote the brand. Still, he said, "We had to make the decision probably six to eight weeks ago when the heat was on the television networks." The announcement came less than three months after the Jackson uproar and a week after...

To be sure, exposed breasts are a penny a pair on billboards all around the United States, and we have grown so desensitized to them that they at most evoke a momentary and instantly forgettable rush, like a...
