Well that’s one way to sell clothes!

In a new Victoria’s Secret ad, the brand takes a cue from Johnnie Walker Blue and casts Angel Lily Aldridge in a mini-movie promoting the #LessIsMore campaign and a new collection of clothing.

In the clip, Aldridge hosts a fancy dinner party for friends, but in a bit of a clumsy streak, spills food and wine on herself again, and again … and again.

Luckily, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover model — married to Kings of Leon singer Caleb Followill and mom to daughter Dixie, 2 — just happens to have a closet in her kitchen (lucky!), and changes into several cute outfits over the course of her night (though her dinner guests definitely start to take notice). And when things get really messy toward the end, well … guess a bra and underwear will have to do.

Dinner sure looked good, though!

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Stupid. Really stupid. I wish businesses didnt make women look dumb. She could of changed into her beautiful clothing as part as presenting the food in the spirit of fun.

@Nikki I don’t think it makes women look dumb…the stereotype being that women do the cooking. Rather, I think it makes a Victoria’s Secret model look relatable. Like, see, she DOES have flaws! (Allegedly, I mean…she’s basically perfect.)

there is something so odd about the way her eyes + eyebrows look together … looks reptilian

You may find yourself limited to long shots until you can get those passing movements working. Her receipt is $10,250 and transporting cost reaches $17,000 a month. This leaves even the most deadly ground formation helpless in the face of heavily armored and well armed tactical aircraft.
