The behemoth of lingerie brands, Victoria's Secret, has failed us once again.

From sizing issues to a lack of racial and size diversity in its What Is Sexy campaign, the brand keeps missing the mark.

However, the latest VS controversy stems not from its clothing, but the way it styled — or rather, didn't style — a Black model's hair. 

Twitter user @ColourMeCrowned noticed how Victoria's Secret failed to properly style model Zuri Tibby's hair.

And this is for the brand's online store — something millions of people will look at.

There was an onslaught of questions as to how this happened.

The troubling hairstyles are seen in MULTIPLE pictures. Were there no people of color on set???

Why do bad things happen to good people? Why? 

Great posing, concerning hairstyles. WHY THOSE EDGES?

Did they not have gel? Grease? Maybe they were attempting to do a fun, messy ponytail, but went a little overboard on the messy side. We'll never know. 

If the brand can style a Black model's hair for runway shows, there's NO reason it can't do it for images appearing in the online store.

Victoria's Secret has had a long history of featuring black models, including Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell, Selita Ebanks, Joan Smalls, and Alek Wek. Most recently, Maria Borges made history when she rocked her natural hair in a cute afro on the catwalk.

So it's completely baffling to me that although Victoria's Secret has worked with Black models with all different hair textures, the brand STILL can't style Black hair properly with any degree of regularity.

If Victoria's Secret really wants to make sure *all* women feel sexy, it'll get with the program. Because, really, messing with Black women's hair? Not OK.
