Victoria's Secret model Karolina Kurkova is being attacked by the Brazilian media for appearing too fat on the runway.
Kurkova was slammed in the country for appearing in a bikini with what critics called "back fat, love handles and cellulite" at the Cia Maritima show during Sao Paulo Fashion Week.
Kurkova, 24, is best known for being a Victoria's Secret Angel.
An article in a Brazilian paper about 5'11" Kurkova described how "shocked" the audience was when she appeared looking uncharacteristically chubby with "cellulite on her butt."
Kurkova is one of the world's highest-paid models, according to Forbes. In addition to Victoria's Secret, she has appeared in campaigns for Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Chanel and Balenciaga.
