Victoria’s Secret has made history. The fashion company has reportedly hired its first openly transgender model.
Valentina Sampaio, a 22-year-old Brazilian model, made the announcement on her Instagram page with a pic of herself during a break from a photo shoot for the company’s PINK line.
In another post, she wrote, “Never stop dreaming… Life is amazing… Love more and hate less, hate is useless, just do not waste time with it!”
Transgender actress Laverne Cox commented, “Wow finally!”
In 2017, Valentina became the first transgender model to appear on the cover of a Vogue publication.
