Over the last few years, lingerie brand Victoria's Secret has found itself in the middle of constant controversy. The brand is known for having previously made transphobic and fatphobic comments, and they've been losing fans on a consistent basis as a result of this. Recently, they added two new angels to their family - Barbara Palvin and Alexina Graham, and people were not impressed. However, Victoria's Secret just announced another new angel and fans are actually happy about this one.
The newest model to earn her VS wings is none other than Leomie Anderson. She's from London, and has tons of fun and witty banter that comes through not only in conversation but also in her catwalk. She has a history with Victoria's Secret and has walked in the last four consecutive shows. Leomie has also walked for high-end designers such as Yeezy, Rihanna, Marc Jacobs, and Tom Ford, among others.
A lot of people were unimpressesd with VS's decision to use red hair and wider hips as examples of diversity, but seeing the company add more women of colour to its angel family is sparking plenty of positive conversation in the comments section:
People are already beyond excited about Leomie's energy on and off the stage, so here's to hoping we can expect bigger and better things for this year's VS Fashion Show. If you want to get to know her a little better, you can check out the announcement video below:
