VS Fashion Show 2015, Meet the 14 New Models Making their Victorias Secret Runway Debut
Meet the 14 new angels making a debut at the VS Fashion Show 2015. Some of the most iconic models of all time have built their careers on Victoria’s Secret’s lingerie filled runway. Take for example icons like Adriana Lima, Gisele Bunchden, and Tyra Banks. For many models, the honor of becoming a Victoria’s Secret angel trumps any other job. Rightfully so. History has proved that gaining a pair of angel wings means more than simply being able to walk in the VS fashion show 2015. It’s essentially an industry wide award.
So, what makes the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show so special and why do so many people obsess over it? The annual VS fashion show has basically become a pop cultures definition of femininity, sex appeal, and beauty. By presenting a crew of beautiful supermodels, the brand is reinforcing an ideal. Whether we agree with these tactics or not, we can’t deny it’s effectiveness.
VS Fashion Show 2015 and Diversity
Considering its large platform, the VS fashion show has an opportunity to advocate and set industry wide standard. For example, with its selection of models the vs fashion show is reflecting on what it thinks is ideal on topics like gender, race, and body image. Unfortunately, so far I can’t say that we’ve been all to impressed with an overwhelming display of diversity on the Victoria’s Secret runway. On one hand, there are memorable black VS angels like Tyra Banks, Liya Kebede, Naomi Campbell, Oluchi Onweagba, and Selita Ebanks. However, these women all have one thing in common; they stood alone as the only women of color in group of 45 other angels in a vs fashion show.
Over the years the VS fashion show has continued to diversify and perhaps the VS Fashion Show 2015 is its most honest attempt yet. With 14 new VS models out of a lineup of 47, this group really seems to represent the culture of now moreso than ever before. In addition to the model’s large and engaged social media followings, each woman seems to represent a new type of supermodel. One that is equal parts celebrity, social influencer and supermodel.
