AN ex Victoria's Secret employee has claimed it was one of the worst places to work.

She said Victoria's Secret workers had to get their hair and nails done and were required to wear makeup.
Ciara said: “They tried to enforce this as much as they could.”
The ex-worker admitted that she tried to wear makeup for most of her shifts but said that she couldn’t keep up with the demands all of the time.
Ciara also claimed that workers were required to get their toenails painted if they wore sandals.
And, she alleged that employees were sent home from work if they wore colors other than black.
Meanwhile, another ex-worker claimed that customers took their clothes off when they asked for help.
A series of disturbing allegations concerning the lingerie company came to light in a documentary titled Victoria’s Secret: Angels and Demons.
The documentary aired on Hulu last month.Most read in LifestyleBUZZ OFF I was tired of flies coming into my house, but I discovered a hack to repel themREAL DEAL I'm an Aldi fan - I buy weekly groceries for under $26 by sticking to 13 itemsSTORE SECRETS Walmart knows you're stealing at self checkout & it's not because of camerasFASHION BIBLE I’m a fashion expert - 4 rules to follow so you don't look older than you are
It revealed a connection between the company’s founder Les Wexner and the convicted sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.
Wexner bought the company for £850,000 in 1982 before sales quadrupled.
The documentary alleges that Wexner and Epstein were close friends for 20 years, living on the same estate.
Wexner was accused of giving Epstein power of attorney over much of his business.
The documentary also claimed that Epstein used his association with the lingerie firm to procure young models.
Cindy Fedus-Fields, former CEO of Victoria’s Secret Direct — the brand’s catalog/online arm — claimed: “In 1993 I was told a man was in New York portraying himself as a recruiter for Victoria’s Secret models.
“I asked his name and she said Jeffrey Epstein and I thought, boy, this is trouble.
“I asked for Les (Wexner) to be called directly and he said he would put an end to it.”
Wexner reportedly described Epstein as “very smart with a combination of excellent judgment and unusually high standards”.
Victoria’s Secret was known for its annual fashion show where supermodels were showcased.
Glam stars would wear tiny bras and stilettos alongside angel wings.
Models were known as the Victoria's Secret Angels and Ed Razek was viewed as the mastermind behind the title and the show.
Razek left the firm after the fashion show ended in 2019. Wexner has taken a back seat.
In June 2021, it was announced that Victora's Secret would no longer promote their “Angels” supermodels as part of their marketing.
At the time, Victoria's Secret CEO Martin Waters told The New York Times that the Angels were no longer "culturally relevant."
He added: "I've known that we needed to change this brand for a long time.
"We just haven't had the control of the company to be able to do it. We needed to stop being about what men want and to be about what women want."
The company has since diversified its models.Read More on The US SunBEAUTY QUEEN MYSTERY JonBenét Ramsey cops urged to re-test DNA on 3 key pieces of evidencePICKERS' DREAM Inside American Pickers star Robbie's $225K store featuring vintage cars

Chiefs Rookie Trending Toward First NFL Start in Week 12
Getty Kansas City Chiefs safety Bryan Cook during the 2022 preseason.
The Kansas City Chiefs have relied on their 2022 draft class all season and that group of rookies will be called on again versus the Los Angeles Rams.
Starting safety Juan Thornhill was labeled as questionable on the Chiefs’ final injury report in Week 12 after suffering a calf issue. He did not participate in practice on Friday, putting his status for Sunday’s game in doubt.
Although Thornhill has not officially been ruled out yet, his chances of playing don’t appear to be great, and his absence would move first-year safety Bryan Cook up the ladder.Chiefs S Bryan Cook ‘Trending Toward’ First NFL Start
USA Today media member Charles Goldman talked about Cook’s potential promotion during an article with Chiefs Wire.
“Cook is trending toward making his first career NFL start with Juan Thornhill listed as questionable with a calf injury,” he wrote. “The rookie safety did some really good things in Week 11 and earned the trust of Steve Spagnuolo in doing so. He had a touchdown-saving tackle of Austin Ekeler in the red zone. He also helped Nick Bolton force a fumble on Keenan Allen and so on.”

Get Coached Into the Best Shape of Your Life
The Cincinnati safety was originally pegged as a prospect that could make an immediate impact on the field, and he has been a consistent contributor all season. Cook has appeared in nine out of 10 games so far, with 21 total tackles, one pass defense, and one quarterback hit.
His snaps have been split pretty evenly on defense and special teams so far, with 184 as a safety and 164 with the ST unit. That could change if he’s elevated into a starting role.
“He can build on that performance in Week 12, but also make an appeal to the coaching staff with his play,” Goldman voiced. “A good performance, even against a backup quarterback could show the coaching staff that the second-round draft pick is ready for a bigger role moving forward.”
Thornhill is an impending free agent in 2023, so every moment on the field is an audition for Cook. If he continues to develop, he could step into a full-time job alongside Justin Reid next spring.Chiefs Announce Week 12 Elevations
Kansas City did elect to use their practice squad elevations in Week 12. Chiefs Digest insider Matt Derrick was one of the first to report on the moves.
Chiefs elevated S Zayne Anderson and WR Cornell Powell for Sunday’s game versus Rams. Both are special teams depth but also provide depth at positions where injuries remain an issue.

“Chiefs elevated S Zayne Anderson and WR Cornell Powell for Sunday’s game versus Rams,” he tweeted. “Both are special teams depth but also provide depth at positions where injuries remain an issue.”
The Anderson promotion all but ensures Thornhill’s unavailability, while Powell gets the call over Marcus Kemp this week. Both wide receivers were elevated last week against the Los Angeles Chargers but neither factored in the passing game.
With Kadarius Toney ruled out, it makes sense to spend another elevation on Powell.
It will be the second time that both of these practice squad players are elevated this season, meaning they each have one potential elevation remaining. Anderson last appeared in the Week 6 game against the Buffalo Bills, as well as four games in 2021. He has registered 76 special teams snaps in his career but has never played a snap on defense.
Powell logged one snap on offense against the Chargers, with 15 snaps on special teams.
