Ed Razek is ranting. He’s infuriated with those who say his sexy Victoria’s Secret ads pander to men. He insists that women are the vast majority who pay attention—and regularly TiVo—the scenes of supermodels dancing in their Victoria’s Secret bras. But doubters “don’t want to listen to the facts. They already have an agenda and a predisposition, and their information is wrong,” he barks.
Creative director at Victoria’s Secret since the mid-1990s, Razek says 98 percent of its customers are female, most of its executives are women and two-thirds of the viewers of its televised fashion shows are female.
