Women Are Applauding Ashley Graham’s Subtle Shade At The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show


“Imagine seeing girls like Ashley Graham walking the VS runway it’d be fucking amazing.”

On Monday, Victoria’s Secret filmed their annual fashion show in Shanghai. It featured many famous models, including Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Lily Aldridge.

However, though the show featured many different models, it was missing one demographic: plus-size women.

The lingerie line is pretty notorious for not catering to plus-size women. The largest panty size they sell is an XL, and the largest bra size they sell is a 40DDD.A woman named Dana Drew from California even started a petition a few years ago asking for the company to cater to more sizes. The petition has over 3,000 signatures.”I love Victoria’s Secret so much that I even have their credit card,” she wrote. “My money and my credit are good enough for them, but the fact that I can only buy items like perfume, lotion, and body spray sends the message that my body is not. Every year I watch the Angel fashion show and would love to purchase the items I see on my screen but can’t because Victoria’s Secret doesn’t sell plus sizes.”

Another person who thinks Victoria’s Secret should include more body diversity in the show is model Ashley Graham. Last year, she told TMZ she was willing to walk the runway for them whenever they decided it was time.

“I mean, when Victoria’s Secret calls me and asks me to be on their runway I’m gonna say yes,” she said.
This year though, Graham decided to throw a little shade their way. On the day of the show, she posted a photo of herself looking fierce on the runway with a little addition: photoshopped angel wings.

“Got my wings! 🦋💐🌈😜 .. my #AdditionElle wings! #thickthighssavelives,” she wrote.The original photo is from last year, when Graham modeled the holiday 2016 collection for the brand Addition Elle, which she models for and collaborates with.

Many women totally loved her subtle ~shade~.

“Great move @theashleygraham ! We want to see diversity! Fashion for all!” one woman wrote.
