Angolan Supermodel Maria Borges walked for the third time in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but this time around she proudly rocked her natural hair… and she’s the first to do so.

Borges did the big chop and sported her TWA earlier this year for the Givenchy Fall 2015 catwalk after receiving encouragement from Riccardo Tisci, the Creative Director at Givenchy. She was apprehensive about requesting to rock her natural hair in the Victoria’s Secret Show, but a closed mouth won’t get fed…and  apparently her request was granted.

This is a huge statement. I grew up seeing black supermodels wearing nothing but long, barbie doll-looking weaves, until Alek Wek. I haven’t seen a supermodel with natural hair or a TWA since. Our young girls need to know that you don’t have to wear a weave to be a supermodel, to be considered beautiful, to be thought of as sexy (the VS Fashion Show is considered to be the sexiest show of the year.)

Maria Borges made a bold statement rocking her natural hair and set a different standard of beauty for the show. I couldn’t be more proud of her.
