Angolan beauty and supermodel, Maria Borges, proved that beauty didn’t only come in the form of long tresses, by rocking her natural hair in the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Long, flowy beach waves and styles are synonymous with the televised event and overall image of Victoria’s Secret. However, Maria’s statement to wear her natural hair while walking in the show is a bold statement in itself, as it goes against the Victoria’s Secret image we are so familiar with. Borges’ statement comes at a time where more women, and young girls, have chosen to embrace their own beauty as is. In my opinion, it’s another win for women of color, especially young black girls.
As an African American woman, and curly girl, I’m excited to see Maria strut down the runway rocking her TWA. I’m sure the beauty will be a standout in the crowd of beachy waves we’re accustomed to seeing.
Look out for Maria, and your favorite bombshells, on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which airs on Tuesday, December 8th at 10pm EST on CBS!
