    The Black Models of 2016 Victoria’s Secret

    Darlings!

    Hope all is well with you. Did you catch the Victoria’s Secret Runway Show that happened at the Grand Palais – Paris this year? I was very happy to see that among the 52 models we had many black beauties walking the runway.

    Victoria’s Secret shows are well know for being a super glamorous affair, with lots of gorgeous women and great performers playing live. This year they had Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and The Weeknd, and the show was divided in 6 segments: Road Ahead, Secret Angel, Mountain Romance, Pink Nation, Dark Angel and Bright Night Angel.

    Now, let’s focus on the black models we had this year: Cindy Brown, Leomie Anderson, Joan Smalls, the lovely Maria Borges, Laís Ribeiro, not to mention the beautiful Jasmine Tookes who was chosen to wear the super coveted Fantasy Bra, created by jewelry designer Eddie Borgo.

    The honor of wearing the most expensive piece of the collection was once of Tyra Banks in 1997, and Selita Ebanks in 2007, making Jasmine the 3rd black model to use the precious piece.

    The Victoria’s Secret 2016 show also featured new faces such as Dilone, Paulo Herieth, Alanna Arrington, Zuri Tibby, Lameka Fox and Jourdana Phillips.

    Let’s take a look at some of my favorite pieces?
