This is why we LOVE Rihanna!!! So backstory first...
In a recent interview with Vogue magazine, chief marketing officer, Ed Razek talked about having "plus-size" and "trans" models in the shows and he said No, because the show is suppose to be a "fantasy"
"Shouldn’t you have transsexuals in the show? No. No, I don’t think we should. Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy," he told the publication. "It’s a 42-minute entertainment special. That’s what it is."
Well clearly after that Ed and Victoria's Secret was going to face some backlash, one model Louise O’Reilly posted this on twitter!
RIGHT!!!!! Why is a 70 year old dude getting to call the shots about a fashion show that is about women. Now I know someone can say "it's for the guys, the guys watch the show!" - BUT Women are spending the money at the company!
I personally decided after last years Victoria's Secret show that I would not spend any more money at Victoria's Secret until they decided to include different body types! Women like Ashley Graham, Jennie Runk, Tess Holiday, Saffi Karina and Tess Holliday are beautiful and bodies like theirs deserve to be represented!
I am not a super skinny girl and I love my body, and I use to LOVE Victoria's Secret, and I truly feel that if you sell the sizes why not show off the women that fit those sizes.
Victoria's Secret also prided themselves on representing women of different ethnicities and had Winnie Harlow in this years show, but I just don't understand why they haven't moved forward when it comes to body image!
Ok I got off track...back to RIHANNA!!! So Rihanna saw that tweet from Louise and hit the LIKE Button! Ok so maybe it wasn't this HUGE shade moment, but she still liked it. AND it's true Rihanna's lingerie company includes all body types.
Of course Victoria Secret tried to back peddle on the comments
