A lawsuit filed by Shaunda McDaniel and Tammi Robinson alleges negligence, slander, intentional infliction of emotional distress, false arrest and violations of various state codes. . . . According to the complaint, the plaintiffs went to the Victoria's Secret store, located in a predominantly white and affluent area, last June 16 for the chain's semiannual sale. They were perusing the sale items when a...

    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,...

    Alessandra Ambrosio Lands in Hot Water with PETA for Dyeing Her Dog Pink The Victoria's Secret model came under fire from the animal rights group after stepping out with her pink and purple pooch in Malibu It looks like this Angel is barking up the wrong tree. Alessandra Ambrosio is used to turning heads every time she steps out on the street, but it seems the Victoria's Secret supermodel drew the wrong kind of attention when she took her dip-dyed pink and purple pooch for a walk in Malibu on Thursday. The brunette beauty and mom of two came under...

    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...

    So I took the kids out to the mall to shop for Mom two days before Christmas. I want them to know that Christmas is not just about receiving but giving as well. 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...

Her lawyers say they have received similar complaints from other women, including some who want to join the lawsuit."I was floored," Ritter said. "I thought, 'I have to come out with this.
