Despite this generation being all about a no tolerance for rubbish policy, many big fashion houses have not taken notice. Such a tactic of not taking into account what the audience cares for is something that does backfire eventually. The latest target? Victoria’s Secret. The high-end lingerie house is all about signing up models who have “the physique” to sport a lacey pair of undies. Like the rest of the women who aren’t fit aren’t deserving enough.
Just last week, a model took this battle into her own hands. And with Instagram being such a weapon of mass influence, her word spread with increasing momentum. Meet Tabria Majors, a 27-year-old plus-size model, who recreated the images of VS by sporting fabulous lingerie and proving to the world that fashion should come in all shapes and sizes.
Tabria posted a series of shots on the 31st of October, three posts to be precise, captioned, “Maybe I’ll be a Victoria’s Secret Angel this year for Halloween, since it ain’t happening in real life lol. Just paying homage to a few of my favorite pics/outfits from VS here and showing that curvy girls can rock (and sell) lingerie just as well as straight size models.”
This instagram post has already brought in almost 30,000 likes. Meaning about 30k people agree with the message that this young, beautiful lady is sending out. Victoria’s Secret hasn’t yet addressed this issue. One brand that has taken notice of Tabria is Sports Illustrated. Tabria is a finalist in their Swim Search and her win can stamp her spot to be featured in their 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
Comments show that the audience is in full support mode. One person wrote: “damn i thought you were one of the real models i was hoping you were 😭💖 seeing it on you is seeing it on a real human.” Another commented, “Thank you for showing us that VS Angels look better originally 💗” This shows that it is high time couture houses leave behind the traditional approach of seeking perfect looking ladies.
