The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is more than a fashion show. Whether you’re watching solo with some ice cream (no judgement, we’ve been there) or with a group of your favorite pals, the annual show can ignite your imagination, not to mention help inspire your lingerie drawer. And this year, we’re more excited than ever to watch the catwalk, because Victoria’s Secret has added six black models to the show’s annual lineup for what may just be its most diverse presentation yet.

Last week, the brand announced seven Asian models in their lineup, and we hoped they would include even more women of color in the show. Now, it looks like our dreams have come true: the brand has cast 17 newcomers in this year’s presentation (with a clear focus on inclusivity). The lineup includes Aiden Curtiss, the daughter of a Yves Saint Laurent muse; Alexia Morais, the face of the Victoria’s Secret Pink line; Mayowa Nicholas, who’s been the face of Calvin Klein underwear, and more.

While these ladies may be newcomers when it comes to this particular show, they’re not new to modeling. But isn’t this fashion show different from all other fashion shows? It’s when we get to see Angels being born.

Needless to say, we’re so excited to see these women kill it on the runway during an experience that’s sure to be unforgettable.

And thanks to a special collaboration with Balmain, this fashion show is sure to be one for the books.
