Model Maria Borges Makes Victoria's Secret History By Rocking Her 'Afro Natural Hair'

November 12, 2015 by Ella Cajayon
shefinds | beauty

Natural hair, don’t care? Well, we sure do care, but in the best way. 23-year-old model, Maria Borges walked the iconic Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in her “afro natural hair.” This is the first time in Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show history that this has happened.

Leading up to the show, she shared on her Instagram a preview of how she looks in her natural afro hair while announcing the exciting news.

Borges shared with Style.com how designer Riccardo Tisci asked her to chop off her hair and go au naturel, which is a look she first debuted at the Givenchy Fall 2015 Couture show during Fashion Week. She said, “He asked me to change my hairstyle. He had asked me last season as well, but I had booked an H&M campaign that same week and at the time I wasn’t feeling as comfortable with change. This season I finally felt ready, and I’m glad that I did.”

Borges then shared with Essence, “I told my agent I wanted to walk in the Victoria’s Secret show with my natural hair. I was nervous, but I had to do it. When they said ‘Yes’ I didn’t expect it, but I was so happy!”

We are so happy for her that she decided to chop it all off, too. Borges is shedding light to women and their natural hair. She is proving that maybe the famous Victoria’s Secret bombshell waves aren’t one-size-fits-all…and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it.
