We can't even imagine the stress a Victoria's Secret model is under while preparing for the annual fashion show -- the workouts, the lack of solid food, the waxing and buffing. So perhaps the pressure finally caught up to Jessica Hart after Wednesday's lingerie extravaganza, because she had a few choice words about the event's big performer, Taylor Swift.
When asked by WWD if the chart-topper would be able to work it in bra and panties, Hart flatly opined, "No."
The Aussie model's reasoning turns out to be unique in a profession that prizes youth above all things: She thinks 23-year-old Swiftie, who's performed for millions since she was but a wee teen with a dream of making money off bad breakups, doesn't exude enough gravitas to strut in lingerie -- or warble alongside those sophisticated and self-assured types strutting in said lingerie.
"I think, you know what, God bless her heart. I think she's great," explained Hart, 27. "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."
