Victoria’s Secret models celebrate natural hair on runway
Jourdana Phillips has a gorgeous short blonde haircut, Harieth Paul wore her little Afro, Maria Borges rocked her ‘fro for the second year in a row, and Alanna Arrington showed off her loose curls.
Stylist and Beachwaver creator Sarah Potempa said that the agreement backstage was that all the models should wear their hair in diverse ways to avoid having one uniform “look.”
“It’s about the whole idea of embracing everyone’s natural beauty,” she told PeopleStyle.
That was certainly the case for Borges, who made history last year as the first model to rock her ‘fro on the runway. This year, she wore an outfit that she described as her “love letter to my beloved continent, Africa.”
We’re totally on board for this new trend of letting natural beauty shine, and we’d like to see more of it in the fashion and beauty industry, please!
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air Monday, Dec. 5 at 10 PM EST on CBS.
