It looks like summer’s not quite over for some people! The ladies of Victoria’s Secret — Miranda Kerr (left), Chanel Iman, Adriana Lima (right) and Doutzen Kroes — are suiting up in some sexy swimwear for October’s ELLE magazine.

The issue, on newsstands Sept. 20, takes a few fashion cues from the 1980s and aims to capture the essence of the bombshell. “Any woman who has a positive attitude about herself and carries herself with class but doesn’t try too hard and say, ya know, ‘Hey, look at me, I’m a bombshell,’ is basically a bombshell,” Iman explains. “It’s just a woman with a positive, strong attitude who knows she has it going on.”

The models — who will hit the runway this fall in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show — were shot on location in Los Angeles. Check out more hot shots at

Miranda is amazing. She looks fantastic, she nurses and travels with her baby. You can tell she and Orlando put family above all else. She is great young mother!

dumbasses Adriana’s daughter Valentina is almost two so of course she’s gonna be back stick thin it’s part of being a model. that’s true most moms unless they have trouble losing the weight after delivery lose it within 6 months of delivery especially if they’re breastfeeding like most of these Victoria’s secret models did are and real stars have for decades

Doutzen Kroes also had a baby last January – and she looks pretty fab as well!

Claire, most women do NOT lose all their baby weight in 4 months! Their uteruses will be fully contracted within 6 weeks, but the time it takes to lose the baby weight depends on alot of factors including mother’s age, c-section versus vaginal delivery, whether there were complications during the pregnancy (i.e. a pregnant woman on restricted bed rest will probably have gained more weight and couldn’t work out during pregnancy to stay in shape and therefore it will take longer to lose it post delivery), whether the mother breastfeeds, and many more factors. To make blanket assertions like this adds to pressures pregnant women face to get back into perfect shape immediately. Try being a little more compassionate and supportive of other women. The fact these women pictured look this great actually is something they should be commended for. It is a big deal. Having said that, it doesn’t mean that other women who take longer to lose the weight have somehow failed.

ADRIANA LIMA still rules above all these girls! Shes just so exotic and gorgeous, her eyes are amazing, just everything god gave her is a gift!

These ladies are beautiful. It’s their job to be gorgeous and they get paid a whole lot of money to do it. I don’t think I’d like to be held up to constant critique and expected to look perfect all the time. Working out hours a day and living on celery and air just doesn’t turn my crank.

I give them credit for what they do..just wish they’d project a healthy body image for the young girls that look up to them and put some emphasis on their educational and professional goals post modeling.

Chanel’s skirt should of worn a different skirt, a pencil skirt and cover the bottom part of the swimsuit..middle part compared to the skirt she wore for her cover for the magazine. It looks strange….anyways, the 3 models outfits look fine compared to hers.

Sandy Cheeks on

Gotta love Photoshop!

for crying out loud – if the average new mom had nannies, housekeepers,and at least one personal assistant so she could have a ‘day-job’ of working out with expensive personal trainers, the average mom would look like Miranda also. She is ONLY rich and spoiled.
