Taylor Swift may have accomplished a lot of things in her young life, but when it comes to modeling, she has some learning to do. Swift recently performed at the Victoria’s Secret “Angels” lingerie show and while she impressed many of the models in the show, not everyone was so smitten with the young star.

Victoria’s Secret model Jessica Hart didn’t knock Swift’s performance, but said she doesn’t believe she make a good lingerie model. But according to Hart, it isn’t Swift’s appearance that need some work, it’s her confidence. Hart said,

“I think, you know what, god bless her heart. I think she’s great,” she said. “But, I don’t know, to me, she didn’t fit. I don’t know if I should say that. I think what you find is that for a lot of us, we’ve been working for 14, 15 years; what it takes to make it here comes from experience and confidence and knowing how to be confident with yourself. I think it comes with age. It’s definitely the benchmark of all jobs.”

Not all of the models feel the same way as Hart and most of them applauded Swift for her performance at the show. Many of them also lined up to take photos with the singer, including Swift’s model friends Cara Delevingne, Lily Aldridge and Karlie Kross.


Swift is still young and already has an amazing music career and has also dabbled in acting. She is tall and beautiful and has everything it takes to be a model but the experience. In a few years, we may see Swift walking down the runway with her same model friends instead of just performing at the show.

    I’m sorry, but this article is way out of line. Why in Gods name would Taylor Swift, one of the most successful singer/songwriters in history, who built her reputation on being a positive role model for young women, decide to sacrifice that career to become a lingerie/fashion model, and alienate a good deal of her fans in the process?

    Jessica Hart wasn’t trying to diss Taylor Swift by saying she wouldn’t make a good VS model. If anything, she was paying her a compliment. I’ve read a few of these “VSFS Model Disses Taylor Swift” articles, among others, and it’s sickening to think how many of you Hollywood types are so eager to get Taylor into nothing but a bra and panties for your camera lens, just so you can sell more magazines and boost your ratings.

    Taylor has stated repeatedly in interviews that she does not have any interest in doing sexy photo shoots, or promoting herself as a sex symbol, so stop trying to push her into something she doesn’t want to do. She’s not comfortable with it. And even if she was, we fans wouldn’t stand for it.

    Most of us have followed her since she was a teenager, or caught up with her teenage years through her video blogs and interviews. Many of us consider her as something akin to a family member, because she is that devoted to her fans.

    Taylor didn’t perform at the VSFS because she wants to be a lingerie model, she did it for the exact opposite reason. She did it to prove that she doesn’t need to be half nude to be sexy. And she did it with class, as always.
