Maria Borges did take a risk when she had her agent communicate to the fashion power house that she wanted to model with her natural hair at Victoria Secret's December 2015 Fashion Show in New York. The most likely response would have been a "no". And then there would have followed concerns as to why she made the demand in the first place. According to the young Angolan model, it simply was something she had to do. And she did do it; making history as the first ever black model to rock her Afro on a Victoria Secret's runway. Maria has established herself as a global Afro Icon, even with just her teeny weeny afro :grinning: It takes a strong sense of beauty on the inside to take a stance for the beauty of your physical attributes. We love you for this Maria.

How did I miss this?! I love when African women throw caution to the wind and rock the crown.
