About one month ago, Cara Delevingne fueled speculation she’d be walking alongside Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show when she posted her open invitation from executive producer Ed Razek. Delevingne used the letter to debunk tabloid rumors that VS had rejected her in 2014 due to her “being too bloated.”
“Contrary to The Sun‘s claims, which they never bothered to fact check with me, Victoria’s Secret made every effort to have you in the London show,” Razek wrote. “I know, because I was the one making the effort. As a matter of fact, you were the first person invited, months ahead of anyone else…. There was NO casting [contrary to claims]. You had already been enthusiastically confirmed.”
Delevingne couldn’t go then because she was shooting. “So allow me to extend the invitation once again,” Razek ended his letter. “If you’re free on November 30, please join us in Paris. As always, we’d love to have you. No casting necessary!”
Delevingne made no indication as to whether she’d walk this year. But the answer came this week when she was missing on the flight over to Paris and, ultimately, from the runway on Wednesday. Delevingne did pop up on social media around showtime, though, on her sister Poppy Delevingne’s Snapchat. They were on a plane to the Maldives with their family and friends.
They landed yesterday, and Delevingne made it clear on her own Instagram she’s enjoying the time on the beach:
Maybe VS next year, then.
