Now, now, don’t say naughty things about Katrina Hodge because she can kick your butt. Seriously, she’s a corporal in the British Army so she can kick your behind. She’s not called Combat Barbie (emphasis on combat) for nothing, you know.
Anyhoo, Katrina participated in the controversial Miss England contest where she reportedly impressed the judges with her rifle drill performance, a first in the history of beauty contests. She ended up as the Miss England second runner-up and caught the interest of La Senza who chose her to front its latest underwear campaign.
Says Katrina of her image makeover from soldier to model:
‘I am enjoying the attention and profile but my job is still as an army soldier. I love the army life and if this encourages more women to join up then that would be brilliant.
‘I’m so proud of this campaign and I really hope that it encourages other high street stores to offer discounts to men and women in the armed forces.’
Oh, just so you know, Katrina’s got herself a medal of bravery award for disarming an insurgent during her tour of duty in Iraq. Didn’t we tell you the girl kicks ass?
Anyone of you hoping that Katrina will do a calendar project with her fellow female soldiers? You know, kind of like the Garrison Girls project.
Update: Want More La Senza Underwear For Girls?
We thought La Senza is an Italian brand but it turns out that its actually Canadian. Way to go, Canada! The company behind the brand is actually the same one that produces the very popular Victoria’s Secret underwear. Did we say, way to go Canada? Hehe.
Anyhoo, here are more famous girls modeling intimate apparel from La Senza. Let’s start with English actress and glamor model Gemma Atkinson who had this to say when she was asked to be a model for La Senza:
I was really excited when La Senza asked me to be their model. It’s fantastic to be wearing pretty girly lingerie for once and I think people will really see the girly side of me as the underwear is so gorgeous and colourful. I can’t wait to see myself in shop windows – and I think my friends and family will get a nice surprise when they are out shopping too as I haven’t really mentioned the campaign!
So here’s Gemma in her La Senza Broderie Gingham undies.

Next, we have British actress/model Emma Heming who also served as a spokesmodel for the lingerie company. If Emma’s name is kinda familiar to you, it’s because she is the wife of Hollywood A-Lister Bruce Willis. The two got married in March 2009.
Our final La Senza model is no stranger to Famewatcher: Lauren Budd. You might know her as the ex of David Walliams. She also goes by the name Violet Budd according to chickipedia. Anyhoo, here are some pics of Lauren modeling intimate womenswear from the La Senza 2011 collection.
Haha. This one’s cool!
