When news hit that Jourdan Dunn wouldn’t walk in the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, we couldn’t help but wonder how diverse the show would be. Only 7 models of color walked in the taping so there is still work to be done. But VS does have a rich history of tapping models of color like Naomi Campbell and Alek Wek to don their lingerie. Ahead, black models who have graced the Victoria’s Secret runway.
