Victoria’s Secret gets blasted for this year’s selection of models, but WHO did they disappoint?

People are calling out Victoria’s Secret again for failing to include enough diversity.

The world-famous American lingerie company unveiled its latest designs in a show last week. But many onlookers were disappointed in the scarcity of plus-size and non-white models.

In an act of protest, plus-size model Ashley Graham posted a photo on Instagram showing her on a runway while wearing Victoria’s Secret lingerie. The caption read “Got my wings!” and featured the hashtag”thickthighssavelives.”

The picture was met with enthusiasm from Graham’s followers, who responded with glowing comments.

“You are perfect.You do not need Victoria’s Secret , They need you. I know you have wanted to walk for them but Do not be upset they haven’t put you in their show its their loss. You are smart, funny, Kind and beautiful. I wish you continued success love and happiness.”

Graham has built a strong following by challenging traditional ideas of beauty.

Graham’s modeling has given hope to men and women whose bodies don’t match up with the usual model physique.

Viewers of the show were also upset at the high proportion of white models, while noting that there were at least some Asians present.

Meanwhile the choice of apparel for some of the black models stirred controversy.

But others noted that this was Victoria Secret’s most diverse lineup of models yet. Yolanda Hadid, mother of Palestinian-Dutch model Bella Hadid, took to Instagram to share a picture of her daughter holding hands with black model Zuri Tibby at the event.

“The beauty of the Angelic realm where there is no hate, judgment or racism but rather a space of love, support and togetherness where everyone is celebrated,” Hadid wrote.
