On Wednesday, the New York Times published a lengthy feature about the lingerie retail giant Victoria’s Secret’s mission to redefine beauty by replacing their sexy models.

“The Victoria’s Secret Angels, those avatars of Barbie bodies and playboy reverie, are gone,” the Times reported, celebrating that “their wings, fluttery confections of rhinestones and feathers that could weigh almost 30 pounds, are gathering dust in storage… In their place are seven women famous for their achievements and not their proportions.”
