Cape Town – ICYMI, The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has been axed for 2019.

Victoria’s Secret Angel, Shanina Shaik confirmed the news, saying they were "trying to work on branding" – and it’s about time too, considering they’ve been criticised time and time again for failing to be inclusive.

It looks like the brand’s putting their plan into action though, by giving their first-ever transgender model her wings.

Valentina Sampaio took to Instagram sharing an image of herself in a bathrobe with the caption, "Backstage click", and tagged in the post was Victoria’s Secret PINK.


It looks like Valentina Sampaio is getting her wings – and it’s totally giving us life!
