Taylor Swift "didn't fit in" on the Victoria's Secret catwalk, according to model Jessica Hart.
The 23-year-old singer performed at the annual fashion show in New York on Wednesday, but Australian lingerie model Jessica wasn't impressed by her on the runway. When asked if the leggy "I Knew You Were Trouble" star could pull it off as a Victoria's Secret model, Jessica replied bluntly, "No." Speaking to Women's Wear Daily at the after show party, she said, "I think, you know what, God bless her heart. I think she's great. 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."
"The bodysuit is insane. It’s the most covered up I’ve been in any Victoria Secret fashion show."

Cara Delevigne dressed as a sexy soccer player at the Victoria Secret's fashion show on Wednesday.
The 21-year-old model donned a naughty kit-inspired lingerie set as she walked down the catwalk in high-waisted shorts, a tucked in open-button shirt and a bright blue bra. Cara sported ankle-boot stilettos with knee-high socks rolled down, while she clutched a ball emblazoned with the Victoria's Secret initials.
Taylor Swift kicked off the show held in New York City with her hit "I Knew You Were Trouble," while wearing a Union Jack print mini-dress accompanied with a matching train and top hat, which were splattered with paint. Fall Out Boy, indie band A Great Big World and UK-based girl group Neon Jungle also took to the stage to perform a few of their own tracks during the British section of the show.
Lily Aldridge, Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Donaldson, Erin Heatherton and Candice Swanepoel also graced the catwalk in lingerie, which tied in with the themes of Snow Angels, Shipwrecked, Parisian Nights, Pink Network and Birds of Paradise.
Not only is French electronic duo Daft Punk making waves and breakin records in the music business, but they're now appearing to dominate the fashion industry, too.
A New Yorker snapped up this photo of the pair with newly-appointed Victoria's Secret angel Karlie Kloss. Dressed in dapper suits that some believe to be from Hedi Slimane, the musical group appears to be shooting an editorial or new music video.
There's been no official word from either party as to what they were up to in the Midtown streets, so we'll just have to play the waiting game to find out.

Just like plenty of movies and fashion trends these days, television shows are also constantly being recycled. MTV, for one, has decided that it's time to bring back the nineties fashion-centric House of Style - this time, however, it will be hosted by models Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls.
MTV announced the news at Thursday night's Video Music Awards, which both models attended to raise awareness of the upcoming program (in addition, of course, to their primary job of just looking stunning on the red carpet) “I can’t believe it," Smalls said. "I’m in shock as well,” Kloss added. “It’s unbelievable and such a huge honor. We have major shoes to fill.”
Cindy Crawford, Amber Valetta, Molly Sims and Rebecca Romijn were a few of the models who hosted the original show back in the day. “Both industries have changed quite a bit. So it’ll be interesting to see how we show that," Kloss said.

Karlie Kloss and Jason Wu are teaming up to raise $50,000 for AIDS organizations.
The model and the designer are close friends and will head up a team called Step Forward to complete a 6.2-mile sponsored AIDS Walk around New York this Saturday. They are currently taking sponsorships to reach their target.
"The idea came about at the Met Ball with a mutual friend of ours. We were in a sea of glamour and we looked at each other and said, 'what do we do next?' The AIDS Walk became a perfect opportunity to change our ballgown and black tie for sneakers and work-out clothes. Juicy Couture is even donating a bucket of money for me to wear their clothes for the event which is amazing - it's fantastic to see my friends in the fashion community getting behind us, come on guys!" Karlie explained.
Karlie, 19, wore a custom-made pink gown by Jason to the Met ball earlier this month. She joked she had been training for the walk by getting plenty of practice on catwalks:
Karlie Kloss made her catwalk return during Paris Fashion Week yesterday.
The model - who skipped Milan, London and New York Fashion Week this year - took to the runway for Anthony Vaccarello, where she opened the show, and is set to also walk for Christian Dior, Lanvin and Jean Paul Gaultier.
According to Fashionista.com, Karlie had cancelled all Milan, London and New York Fashion Week appearances this year because she had planned to film a commercial in Japan but it fell through allowing her to take part in Paris Fashion Week. Karlie was joined on the runway by several other top names including Joan Smalls, Anja Rubik and Arizona Muse, while Kanye West was spotted in the front row.
The 19-year-old Chicago born model, however, admitted recently she was missing New York Fashion Week, tweeting, "No one is more bummed than me to be missing out on all of the#NYFW fun - sending all my love to NYC! Xx (sic)"

Not only has model Karlie Kloss graced some of the most vied for runway gigs (designer Jason Wu calls her his “lucky closer”), but she’s racked over 150,000 airline miles all before she turns eighteen!
Kloss lands next month’s Teen Vogue cover; her featured spread epitomizes her all-American girl appeal. To top it all off—she wants to go to med school! Of the subject, Kloss says she looks up to supermodel Christy Turlington and would like to pursue “some sort of medical degree. Something that would allow me to visit third-world countries and help children.”
