Victoria’s Secret fashion Show 2015: Angel Magdalena Frackowiak refuses to talk to TMZ reporter after he asks ‘stupid’ questions about food.

A Victoria’s Secret Angel shut down a TMZ reporter for asking her a “stupid” question and insinuating models were starving themselves ahead of the fashion show.But just because it’s not a serious conference on the impact of global warming, that doesn’t mean we have to descend into totally patronising silliness, and treat the models like they have nothing better to talk about than starving themselves for the show.

Either they admit they haven’t eaten much during the day, which sets a pretty worrying example for people who want to look like them, or they say they eat fries and burgers all day, meaning we end up feeling a bit crap about ourselves for eating the same thing but not quite having the same bodies. A video taken by TMZ shows a model wearing only underwear standing on a podium backstage as a group of almost completely male photographers take her picture. In the video, which TMZ titled: ‘Backstage with Hot Models Who Crave Fatty Foods’, the camera zooms over trays of sandwiches and fruit before a male reporter asked models what they are looking forward to eating after the show. “What?

While a lot of the other models went down the chocolate, ice cream, and pizza route, Magdalena simply refused to respond, telling TMZ: ‘Not with these kind of questions guys, this is stupid. ‘Ask more smart questions, not “eating after the show”. Sexism is a hot topic of debate during discussions of the show, which came under criticism last year when it emerged a PR instructed an Independent journalist not to ask a model about feminism.

Questions such as “do you have a favourite outfit from the show?” and “how does it feel to be a Victoria’s Secret (VS) model?” were answered by models without any interjections. But the questions: “some critics would say that the show objectifies women – what would you say to that?” and “are you a feminist?”, posed to Dutch Angel Romee Strijd, saw a PR representative swiftly step in and tell our journalist “can we maybe not ask that question”.
