All The Black Models Who Slayed The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

Okay sis, before you start frowning your face up at the thought of yet another white-washed Victoria’s Secret fashion show, we’ve got news for you—this year, there were actually 20 Black models who stormed the show and got their angel wings!

We know, we know; having Black models in a show shouldn’t even be a debate or an afterthought—especially not in 2018—but because of fashion pioneers like Bethann Hardison, Naomi Campbell and others, the roadway has been paved for new beauties like Chey Maya and Iesha Hodges to strut their stuff for one of the biggest fashion show productions on earth.

We counted 20 Black models in total who were on hand to strut their stuff for the show, but the melanin magic didn’t just stop with models! Electrifying performances from Halsey and Leela James also helped make the night one rich in Black girl brilliance.

Take a look at all the stunning women of color who ripped the runway in our photo gallery below.
