The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is one of the most highly anticipated sought after events to happen. Year after year, millions of viewers across the globe tune in for a glance at the next ground breaking trend, or multitudes of glitter on skin and fake tans.

Normally the runway is dominated by Caucasian and south American blonde and brunette bombshells, but over recent years diversity has peaked its’ head in the door. This year alone, they had 5 black models, and 2 Asian models  in the show;(well really 2 1/2) 2 East Asian models, and 1 Half Arab/Half Asian Model. Not only has fashion embraced diversity, but diversity has brought a new found look on fashion itself.

The show itself never seems to disappoint year after year, but this year I can proudly say, Sui He took away the show as the Hottest Model and the new Goddess of Victoria’s Secret 2011 Angels.

As the Asian Exotic look becomes more accepted into mainstream media, we are bound to see more rising  Asian models in high-end fashion shows such as the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

    • Majority of VS clothing is outsourced to manufactures in china, and have been long before asian faces were on the runway. Believe it or not, but a lot of their clothing line is generically made, just slap a VS tag on there and people don’t tend to know the difference. The same style, cut, and textiles used can be found within multiple brands. Ever wonder why you find two articles of clothing from two different brands but 100% identical.

  1. Victoria’s Secret models may be racially diverse, but…

    The older VS models used to embrace different body shapes, but it’s like nowadays each model has to have the same measurements to within 1″ of each other. Apparently they all have to have the same hair style at the same length, too. What’s the deal? I wouldn’t be able to tell them apart if it weren’t for their differing ethnicities.
