The 23-year-old model Maria Borges made history by parading her natural hair, afro style, during the recently celebrated Victoria's Secret fashion show.

With this action, the girl, originally from Angola, has earned the respect of thousands of fans and even many in the fashion industry. The wonderful idea of ​​appearing with natural hair was hers, she explained to Essence magazine. "I said to my agent, I want to parade on the Victoria's Secret show with my hair straight," she told Essence. "I was nervous, but I had to. When they said yes, I wasn't expecting it, but I was so happy!”She added.

Social networks were fussed with the action of Borges. Even many women from different countries, races and creeds began to praise the action of the girl considered the goddaughter (protégée) of Riccardo Tisci, creative director of Givenchy. Remember that the "angels" of Victoria's Secret are distinguished by their long and voluptuous hair.

However, Maria chose to wear it as it is, short, afro-style. Maria posted this photo on her Instagram account with a touching and at the same time powerful message. “At that very moment, I was looking towards God. I was thanking Her for making the third appearance at the Victoria's Secret show a moment that will help women around the world accept their natural beauty.”

Also, the day after the event, he published this other photo on his Instagram account expressing his joy at having walked the catwalk of the famous line of lingerie. "Good Morning! I still don't think this happened yesterday. Here is a photo of my first look at this year's edition of the @victoriassecret Fashion Show.”
