The model has taken to social media to address allegations she was rejected from the 2014 Victoria’s Secret show.

Cara Delevingne has posted a letter to Instagram from Victoria’s Secret calling claims made by The Sun against the model were “a complete fabrication”.

The VS producers have made it very clear that rumours Delevinge was rejected from the 2014 fashion show line-up for being too “bloated” were clearly unfounded.

Executive producer Edward Razek reached out to the model-turned-actress personally to address the tabloid’s allegations.

“Contrary to The Sun’s claims, which they never bothered to fact check with me, Victoria’s Secret made every effort to have you in the London show,” the executive wrote. “The alleged casting, where supposedly disparaging remarks were made, never happened. There was NO casting. You had already been enthusiastically confirmed.”

Cara Instagrammed the letter, dated November 3, 2016.

“It’s shameless to discuss women’s bodies just to sell papers #bloated,” she said in the caption, followed by a heart emoji directed at Victoria’s Secret.

As has been clarified in the letter, scheduling conflicts were the real reason as to why the 24-year-old model was unable to attend the December 2014 fashion show

At the time, Cara was shooting her movie Paper Towns in North Caroline when the London VS show was due to take place.

The letter closes with a warm invitation to the model asking her if she’d like to walk this year’s show. “If you’re free on November 30, please join us in Paris,” the executive wrote, and added: “No casting necessary!”
