Victoria’s Secret have often come under fire for their lack of diversity (uh, where are all the curvy models at?), but it seems they’re finally taking some steps in the right direction.
The brand has just announced that 21-year-old Zuri Tibby is the new spokesmodel for their ‘Pink’ line, making her the first EVER black face of the label. Yep, for real.
Victoria’s Secret have previously featured women of colour in their runway shows and ads, but Zuri is the first to front Pink, marking a major moment for inclusivity in the fashion world.
