Check out these eight drop dead gorgeous models who killed it at the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Paris, France!
The 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will be one for the history books. The annual fashion extravaganza broke the first of many records with four Chinese models and eight black models who strutted their stuff down the Victoria’s Secret runway. The iconic lingerie retailer, who has faced plenty of criticism in the past for lack of diversity, took a step in the right direction by eschewing its typical light-skinned, fair featured models in favor of diverse beauty standards. Foregoing the weaves and extensions, three black models sashayed down the runway rocking their natural hairdos, much to the delight of the audience. Here is a list of the eight African-American models who proved that beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors at the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
