Does the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show need to embrace curvy models?

While many admire Victoria Secret's models, others feel the runway lacked diversity and should include curvier models. Does the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show lack diversity?

One Victoria's Secret Angel feels the runway was more diverse this year than it has been in years past. Fans were elated when they heard 23-year-old newcomer Duckie Thot was going to strut the runway. The Australian model with South Sudanese roots is adored for her dark skin and beautiful figure. 

Thot says the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is moving in the right direction. During an interview with Vogue Australia the model said: 

“The industry has definitely made strides in terms of representation recently,” she admits. “And I’m so glad to be a part of this change. Have we made enough progress? Not necessarily. We can still do more and I’m certainly up to the task of creating more opportunities for those who have been underrepresented.”

Plus-size model Robyn Lawley boycotted the show this year and created a petition because she was tired of the brand refusing to represent women with larger figures. On Change.org, a website that allows anyone to create a petition for change, the model wrote: 

I have spent a lot of my life looking at women in their ads that didn’t look like me, didn’t walk like me, and didn’t make me feel good about myself. I never felt like I was enough when I looked at myself through Victoria’s Secret’s lens.
