Cara Delevingne fired shots over a faux report—and got a highly coveted invitation in the process.
This week, The Sun published an article alleging Delevingne, who hasn't walked a Victoria's Secret catwalk since 2013, was not picked to walk in the brand's annual runway show in London in 2014 because she was "too bloated" at casting.
The candid supermodel fired back at the false words, writing on Instagram, "It's shameless to discuss women's bodies just to sell papers #bloated" with a few middle finger emojis included. However, it was the photo she posted that pointed a few more fingers at the newspaper.
In a letter from Thursday addressed to the British star from Victoria's Secret's Chief Marketing Officer Edward Razek, the executive called the since-deleted report a "complete fabrication."
"Victoria's Secret made every effort to have you in the London show," he explained. "I know, because I was the one making the effort."
As Razek acknowledged, Delevingne ultimately could not attend because she was in the middle of shooting her 2015 film Paper Towns in North Carolina. "As a matter of fact, you were the first person invited, months ahead of anyone else," he continued. "The alleged casting, where supposedly disparaging remarks were made, never happened. There was NO casting. You had already been enthusiastically confirmed." She had previously walked in the show in 2012 and 2013, but has since shifted her focus to acting, recently appearing in this year's Suicide Squad.
To further his point, Razek reaffirmed how much the brand loved her. "You would have made the show better, as you do anything and everything you're involved in," he added.
To add insult to The Sun's injury, the exec offered Delevingne a spot in this year's show without any further deliberation. "As always, we'd love to have you," the letter concluded. "No casting necessary!"
