Victoria’s Secret Hires Its First Transgender Model

It’s the news we’ve all been waiting for: Victoria’s Secret  finally cast their first transgender model. Brazilian model Valentina Sampaio confirmed the news with a behind-the-scenes image of her posing in the brand’s Pink sub-line, writing: “Never stop dreaming” to her 201,000 Instagram followers.

Valentina has been creating waves in the modelling industry, as she was the first transgender model to be on the cover of Vogue Paris in 2017. Since then she has appeared on the covers of German Vogueand Brazilian Vogue, and now she’s breaking down barriers at VS.

Fellow angel Lais Ribero was quick to welcome Valentina into the family, tweeting: “First transgender to shoot with VS! This makes me so happy!”.

This hire is a much-needed move for Victoria’s Secret who has come under fire in recent years for their lack of diversity and inclusivity, both with the choice of models and behind the scenes.
