We ve so much gotten off our heritage too sexy, and we use the word sexy a lot and really have forgotten the ultrafeminine, said Sharen Turney, Victoria s Secret s chief executive, in a call with industry analysts.
Victoria s Secret was launched with the idea that Victoria was manor-born and lived in London, Ms. Turney said. She said Victoria s Secret wants to increase its level of sophistication.
