After reading the room, Victoria’s Secret realized how behind the times it was to parade scantily dressed white skinny women on a catwalk ( disastrous sales didn’t help.)
To combat some of the criticism, VS hired new ‘diverse’ spokeswomen such as Megan Rainoe and Priyanka Chopra. The company also promised plus-size or transgender models. It’s about time.
And no, they won’t be modelling lingerie, but will ‘instead appear on a podcast and in marketing materials for the recovering brand.’ Quote unquote.
Priyanka and Megan will join Sudanese-Australian model Adut Akech, freestyle skier Eileen Gu, Brazilian transgender model Valentina Sampaio, plus-size model Paloma Elsesser, and journalist Amanda de Cadenet.
