'It's shameless to discuss women's bodies just to sell papers'

Cast your mind back to around this time two years ago and you may remember salacious rumours floating around as to why Cara Delevingne would not be taking part in the 2014 Victoria's Secret show in London.

The Sun decided to bring said rumours back into circulation last week when it ran an article claiming that, following a casting session, VS execs claimed that the British model was too 'bloated' to walk in the show, in which models famously don extravagant underwear.

Both Victoria's Secret and Delevingne herself have now spoken out to rubbish the claims, and the offending article has been removed.

In reality, Delevingne was otherwise engaged on the night of the 2014 VS show. She was in the midst of filming a movie in North Carolina and had also already been cast in Chanel's Metiers d'Art show, which took place on the same night in Salzburg.

Victoria's Secret CMO Ed Razek sent Delevingne a letter expressing his exasperation over the false claims and reassuring Delevingne that there was no truth in them.

'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 show. I know, because I was the one making the effort… You were the first person invited, months ahead of anyone else,' he wrote in a letter that the model later posted on her Instagram page.

He goes on to clarify that the reported remarks were 'never made, never happened'. He also extended an invitation for Delevingne to appear in this year's show, taking place in Paris on November 30th, no casting required.

Cara had previously starred in the 2012 and 2013 shows.
