From chocolate spread to celery sticks, young women have been posting their responses to this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in their thousands on Twitter.

Many of the 90,000 tweets using the hashtag #VictoriaSecretfashionshow2014 the event, held in London's Earl's Court, were positive, enthusiastic or at least gawking.

But a noticeable minority of young women turned to social media to complain about beauty standards and their dissatisfaction with their own bodies.

Here's a selection.

Last month Trending reported on a backlash over the company's 'perfect body' ads.

We've tweeted Victoria's Secret for a response and will update if they have anything to say.
