Cindy Bruna, Maria Borges, Grace Bol, Leomie Anderson… This year’s Victoria’s Secret runaway was full of our favorite black models.
The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show took place on monday night in Shanghai and we got a glimpse of all the preparations thanks to the participating models’ Instagram accounts.
For this year festivities, Victoria’s Secret presented an exclusive collaboration with Balmain and of course dozens of expensive and sparkly lingerie. On stage, the Angels strutted to the live performances of Harry Styles and Miguel. The multi-million dollar Fantasy Bra was worn by Brazilian model Lais Ribeiro, who becomes the 4th black model in the history of the show to have the privilege to wear it.
Talking about black models, we couldn’t help but noticed the melanin poppin’ on stage ! With 55 models representing 17 countries, this year’s fashion show, was certainely the most diverse yet. We saw Alécia Morais and Amilna Estevao rocking their natural hair alongside Maria Borges and Aiden Curtiss. Stunning.
