Australian model Jessica Hart, who hit the catwalk for the 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, says country crooner Taylor Swift did not pull it off well as an Angel.

During an interview with Women's Wear Daily at the show's after party at Tao Downtown in Manhattan, Hart said the 23-year-old singer "didn't fit" as a Victoria's Secret model.

"I think, you know what, god bless her heart. I think she's great," she said. "But, I don't know, to me, she didn't fit. I don't know if I should say that. I think what you find is that for a lot of us, we've been working for 14, 15 years; what it takes to make it here comes from experience and confidence and knowing how to be confident with yourself. I think it comes with age. It's definitely the benchmark of all jobs."

However, Karlie Kloss was all praise for the singer, who entertained the crowd with a powerful rendition of I Knew You Were Trouble.

"I think she's the coolest young girl," Kloss told Us Weekly.

Kloss added: "She's a great role model, and I love her music. It's happening. I mean, girl power."

Meanwhile, Lily Aldridge also gushed about Swift and said they had a great time onstage.

"We had a little moment at the end of her song Trouble, where we walked in front of the stage together," she said, "[Taylor] is one of my best friends, so we had so much fun."
