Hanging with a Victoria’s Secret Angel

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

Tip of the day: don’t go lingerie shopping with a Victoria’s Secret angel when you’re seven months pregnant. Doesn’t do a lot to boost one’s self-image. I met up with model Selita Ebanks for a little lingerie talk before her appearance at the Mall of America Victoria’s Secret store earlier this week. She’s been an "angel" – sort of like a sorority, with less clothing, the usual scrutiny and more perks – for three years. Honestly, I hadn’t heard her name before the publicists started calling me about her appearance. But apparently, others know her, because two hours before she was scheduled to start signing autographs, fans – and not just the drooling male variety – were lining up outside the store. Selita was charming – even in her total adoration of Victoria Secret and all of its products.  I’m inclined to believe her – all she has to do is point at something in the store and it’s hers.
