Tonight the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air on CBS (10 p.m. ET). It’s the first year that the show has been done in Paris and it was quite the grand production. But the legendary fashion show has come a long way since it started in 1995 with models simply wearing the lingerie down a runway. There were no wings, there wasn’t all the glitz, no music performances, and there weren’t many women of color stomping down the catwalk.
But this year’s show had quite a few Black women turning heads, and it is sure to be quite the sight to see this evening. In honor of those beauties, we wanted to showcase all of the Black women who’ve been in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show over the years. With the exception of maybe one or two missing (shout out to Chrystéle Saint Louis Augustin for instance, there was no photo of her in the 1998 show), we’ve got just about all of the women covered. Check these legendary ladies out:
Campbell walked in seven shows: 1996–1998, 2000, 2002–2003 and 2005.
