Unlike most viewers who excitedly tune in to the highly-anticipated Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, I absolutely dread it.
It’s obvious that to be chosen for this lingerie spectacle, you must have a specific physique – tall and slim. And if you — like me — DON'T possess that body type, the VS show can leave you feeling really bad about yourself.
To call attention to this major lack of body diversity, Buzzfeed decided to recreate the 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show — but cast women of ALL shapes and sizes.
And it was everything we've ever wanted to see.
Before the show, a professional glam squad took everyone's glow to Angelic levels of perfection.
While the models-to-be anxiously waited for their big debut.
For this show, Buzzfeed cast a mixture of plus and curve models, as well as real women with no professional modeling experience.
And at every size, in every shape, these women SLAYED the runway.
These babes are showing women the world over that there's not just one way to be sexy — EVERY body is beautiful and deserves celebrating!
Needless to say, we're obsessed.
And just when you thought it couldn't get any more awesome, TESS HOLLIDAY closed the show!
Holliday, model and body positive hero extraordinaire, has long spoken out against Victoria's Secret's exclusionary casting.
In an episode of I Yahoo’s Myself, she said that the lingerie retailer was, “Perpetuating the image of what’s wrong with America, and with society in general, that you have to look a certain way — like a Victoria’s Secret Angel — to feel beautiful and be sexy.”
We're pretty sure Ashley Graham would also approve — she recently admitted that she would love to be Victoria's Secret's first plus size Angel.
She told TMZ, "When Victoria's Secret calls me and asks me to be on their runway, I’m gonna say yes."
Whether it's Ashley Graham or Tess Holiday, we can't wait to see Victoria's Secret start casting models who encourage body positivity.
Representation matters — we want to see women on the runway who look like us!
