This year’s Victoria Secret Fashion show model line up includes two African models. It is always nice to see that lingerie brands are ready to experiment. It reminds me of my favorite lingerie brand Just Moi offering great pieces of designer lingerie & swimwear (more from JusteMoi website). One of them is Angolan model, Maria Borgess, who made history at the show last year. She challenged the lingerie brand’s typical parade of models with flowing, tousled hair, by being the first black model to ever walk in the Victoria Secret fashion show whilst wearing her natural afro hair.
This year is joined by another African model, Herieth Paul from Tanzania who is also rocking a natural afro. They are two of three models this year who are wearing a low cut afro. The third being Houston native Jourdana Phillips who recently cut her hair and bleached it.
About Maria Borge:
24 yea old Angolan model, Maria Borges, was raised by her siblings during the Angolan Civil War and has been walking runways since 2012. This will be her third year in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. She was named Forbes Africa Magazine’s top model of 2013. She has walked the runways for Versace, Emporio Armani, Tom Ford, Dior, Marc Jacobs and many other prestigious brands.
A Little About Herieth Paul:
20 year old Herieth Paul is a Tanzanian fashion model who has walked for everyone from Diane von Fûrstenberg to Tom Ford. This is her first Victoria Secret runway show. Her modeling career kicked off when she went to a model angency open call in Ottawa, Canada and was ‘discovered’.
