Who knows how to rock a swimsuit better than a former Victoria's Secret model? VS alum Selita Ebanks has donned her share (and lived to tell about it), so it was no surprise when she announced the launch of her own collection of swimsuits, shoes and beach coverups called Sass by Selita last month. Now the former Angel's beachwear line is ready for its closeup.
Ebanks gave the public a peek at her goods when BET's eight annual "Rip The Runway" fashion show was filmed in New York City last month; the rest of the world gets to see the sexy wares when the show airs this Wednesday night.
With inspiration undoubtedly springing from her experience as a Victoria’s Secret Angel from 2005 to 2008 and her appearance in Sport Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue in 2007, Ebank's collection is not for the faint of heart.
“It takes a certain kind of women to have sass -- very confident, sexy and independent,” Ebanks told the New York Daily News.
Sass, which stands for "Selita's Accessories, Shoes and Swimwear," is slated to hit stores this fall.
