These Victoria’s Secret Angels made it to the Tough Mudder finish line


It’s not surprising that many models work out a lot (some too much), but these Victoria’s Secret Angels are muddying up the image of the waif who barely eats and works out only to maintain dress size.

As part of their coverage of yesterday’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Vogue released a video of four of the models—Romee Strijd, Jasmine Tookes, Stella Maxwell, and Sara Sampaio—finishing the notoriously difficult Tough Mudder obstacle course.

Yes, the video includes the requisite “sexy walk wearing military-inspired garb that makes no sense” and “shaking out long flowing hair while covered in mud” shots, but you also get to see the women demonstrating serious strength; that’s not a body double swinging across monkey bars and scaling walls. It’s a fit, healthy image that feels like a step (or muddy crawl) in the right direction. —Lisa Elaine Held
