She actually looks pretty good in this
I was preparing myself to click disagree but having watched the video I’m actually quite impressed. At certain angles she actually looked skinny (although we know damn well she isn’t so it kinda cancelled out). I’m pretty amazed at how muscular she is though, she essentially transcended the VS level of toned and has gone into bodybuilder territory. Never gonna be thinspo/fitspo for me though.

Regardless, the commitment models put into the VSFS astounds me, they talk about it like they’re going to war when in reality, it just ends up being lacklustre and a source of complaint. I understand it’s probably pretty frightening to walk down a globally viewed runway in very little clothing, but she addresses it as her building up immense emotional and physical strength, that she wonders if she will be able to handle it etc. I can’t imagine it’s that intense.

Either way: impressed at her strength and commitment, forever trying to mentally block out the images of her at her skinniest though.

I think she seems so genuine and natural in this video, nothing to do with the embellished way that some other models will feature their 'fitness journey', with a squeaky voice and bubbly, over-enthusiastic tone.
She talks like I would talk in real life to a friend, in a calm and authentic manner, I find it quite refreshing to see.

I totally agree with you and it's amazing how there are some scenes of the video where she looks great, versus how she actually looked during the show. The difference is so big.

74073A86-5E25-4928-B59A-3E5253182B46.jpeg Is it just me or has anyone else seemed to notice that Taylor appears very average all year or even a bit thick/curvy and then whips her ass into shape for the show. Honestly kinda iconic the way she does it so quickly-and that video of her seems very authentic and genuine which is nice to see compared to a lot of the other girls’ workout challenges/videos. (Ps this photo is from June)

She looks pretty good. Maybe it’s just the angle but I was so happy to see. :luvluv:
Vs this mess:

... Stop I feel my stomach turning. I know this isn’t Barbara Palvin’s thread but I actually can’t stand that VS is supporting her body type. The amount of sweat, determination, and tears it takes to walk the show and she eats a burger the night before and then gets shake shack hand delivered by Dylan on the pink carpet right after the show
