ThirdLove takes out full page of New York Times for Victoria's Secret rebuttal

Nov 21, 2018

In light of the widely condemned statements made by Victoria's Secret CMO Ed Razek, lingerie brand ThirdLove took out a full-page ad in the New York Times to respond with an open letter. "It’s time to stop telling women what makes them sexy," ThirdLove's co-CEO Heidi Zak said.
