Especially not when Igor Oussenko is the photographer and lithe-bodied Olga Akhunova…
Let’s face it, any given Victoria’s Secret look book is as much about admiring the angel as it is about paying attention to the garments. So while the presence of fiery red bras and pastel pink bodices is one thing, you’ll just as easily get caught up in Behati Prinsloo’s sultry stares and bed hair. Though not literally.
