The 34-year-old model and former Angel, who earlier the same month announced her second pregnancy, says her former employer failed to keep up with the times.

“It was a different time and it’s crazy [to say that] because it was 11 years ago,” Rosie told the British newspaper, “which is not that long ago.”
“I do feel Victoria’s Secret really missed the boat with broadening themselves out in the past few years,” Rosie said about the lingerie company, “and really listening to the cultural shift of what people are looking for from their brand.”

Currently undergoing an image overhaul, Victoria’s Secret is saying goodbye to Angels. Instead of attractive models, the company will be represented by a group of seven women who will serve as ambassadors and brand advisors.
The seven new “VS Collective” representatives include the controversial soccer player Megan Rapinoe, actress Priyanka Chopra, Chinese-American skier Eileen Gu, English media personality Amanda de Cadenet, plus-size model Paloma Elsesser, South Sudanese-Australian model Adut Akech, and Brazilian transgender model Valentina Sampaio.

Working out is important, but so is the recovery process. If you don’t believe us, just ask Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

In March 2016, the former Victoria’s Secret model uploaded a photo of her post-workout stretch after one of her usual grueling Body by Simone workouts in Los Angeles.
Rosie wore a gray sweatshirt by Rodarte, which she paired with Nike compression leggings and the Nike Free “4.0 Flyknit” running shoes in light blue.

As it turns out, stretching after a workout helps elongate the muscles to keep from bulky toning. But of course, we probably need to be born with Rosie’s killer genes to get her Victoria’s Secret body.
