Meet Maria Borges, the first Victoria's Secret model to rock natural hair. Yes, it is a FIRST so we have to celebrate it. Setting the trend right there..... because, Black Hair.
She has been the talk on social media; with people appreciating and sharing the beauty's look at the recently held Victoria's Secret annual runway show.
The 1.80 m fashion model was born in Luanda, Angola. She was named Forbes Africa Magazine’s top model of 2013.
Black hair is one of the least celebrated textures in the fashion industry so the likes of Maria showcasing at VS' annual fashion show in all their Nappy Glory is a definite breath of fresh air and hopefully we get to see more variations of black hair celebrated on top notch fashion platforms.
Backstage before she slayed:

Here's to many more naturalistas at VS' runway. (Not pushing it all ;)
