Love you body and feel good...but other people dont need to accept it. Victoria Secret is a business..they are not there to change the world
Rylee Comeaux (1 month ago)
Y’all all need to calm down, she’s not being entitled, she’s proud that she is trans and a beautiful dark skinned woman, she is trying to show the world that women come in all shapes and sizes and colors and races and ethnicities and backgrounds and. That. Needs. To. Be. Appreciated. Us women NEED to stop tearing each other down about how we look and how we think, I understand that VS models work very hard for their bodies and their jobs and I admire them for their drive and relentlessness for perfection, but she’s worked hard too, she not only transitioned and dealt with the consequences from being different but she also is a gorgeous woman with a great body and she has reached her dream of becoming a model, and now she is movie onto her never dream of becoming the first trans woc VS model. She is not entitled. She is proud and wants to achieve her dream. And she also wants to spread her message that every woman is beautiful, a dress size doesn’t define you, your skin color doesn’t define you, your gender doesn’t define you, your background doesn’t define you. YOU. BE. WHO. YOU. WANT. TO. BE.

He doesn't meet the qualifications... :l
Peridot NC (1 month ago)
+Diana Polus You see "she meets the qualifications", yet sadly VS doesn't accept transgender I'm just saying "she" doesn't mean the qualifications. Which Is true "she" doesn't, yet I agree with the fact I also wouldn't never known "she" was a man.
Diana Polus (1 month ago)
+Peridot NC I don't intend to attack you, so I apologize if that sounded offensive.
Diana Polus (1 month ago)
+Peridot NC what qualifications does she not meet? She has a beautiful face and a great body. I understand if the judges don't want to cast her, but then why do they claim that the show is a fantasy. There is no fantasy if you're just going with basic looking models and not challenge what is standard. This is a company that sells clothes ,lingerie, but they wouldn't even attempt to cast trans or plus size models in their show. What is the point of making it look like a fantasy when there nothing otherworldly in it. SMH!!

+Diana Polus It's not an opinion it's facts.

Did she made it? Guys? Did she made it to walk in VS fashion show? 😭

One question, why do you deserve this?
Leona Banks (2 months ago)
Most of the Victoria Secret models are MEN. If you want to see some real women check out: Chocolate Runway/Corrective Dark Skinned Female Promotion. This is what the Media DON'T want you to see.......

You are beautiful, and I hope you are able to live all your dreams
Emperor Norton I (2 months ago)
Social decay is all I see. Apparently "Progressiveness" involves having men in a thing exclusively only for women. Gross.
Ricardo Milos (2 months ago)
No, you’re not entitled to being a VS model, being black and a man playing being a woman doesn’t make you one, and not only are you not a real woman, but even if you get to look or sound like one(you don’t), you also need to reach certain standards like height, weight, etc. Trying to pull the victim card to be a model is absurd.
KitKat Kobe (2 months ago)
A penis won’t look good in a thong and saying that because of your race and because your trans you should be given this. Oh no you need to actually work it. And a penis won’t attract people to watch VS.
Joey Valladared (2 months ago)
Goddam I would of never known she was trans. Not huge fan of trans joining victoria secret but I think if you have the look and I don’t mean just pulling off the look of a woman but pulling off the beauty standards as the rest of the models then maybe yeah that would be fine. Simply being trans shouldn’t be the reason for getting in but being held at the same beauty standards as the other girls that worked so hard to get there should be.

They don't want you.

Sorry, you can’t always get what you want. Start your own show. Don’t push your agenda on us.

I wanna be the first 5'5 model with no modelling experience in the victoria's secret fashion show. no? okay.
Minty (3 months ago)
Wow there isn't a single situation that this man couldn't make himself seem like the victim in.
Ruben Reyna (3 months ago)
Look I strongly believe in the First Amendment and my opinion is why not make a whole new clothing line for the LGBT community trying to change something that was founded in 1977 is pointless... At least until both sides become more accepting: I personally don’t care how you get your Wick/slit wet ;)

You're acting like you're famous but you're not. If one day you get famous, you'll be a diva.We don't need divas. We already have enough divas in the world

Still probably date a banker or real estate broker. These so called 'liberals' only care for personal privileges and consumerism rather than alleviating poverty
Ruby Whitfield (3 months ago)
She is so beautiful
Daisy Pink (3 months ago)
She is already a model. Trying to branch out. Ya seem so stupud
Heather n' Gary Mac (3 months ago)
All the Victoria's secret models are already trans...look @their bone structure. Shoulders always extend past non existent hips. Long humorous bone, Adonis belt, and so on.
Rose Torn (4 months ago)
I'm sorry but ASKING to be a VS model won't make you one. Regardless of being trans or not.
Franiece Velasco (4 months ago)
She’s 😍
Queen Vickyv (5 months ago)
Hmmm she talks about diversity but then talks about YOUNG trans models. What about older people?

holy sandwich she's beautiful
Kylie B (6 months ago)
Aw, girl - Get in line. You're stunning and I wouldn't have known you were trans just looking at you. You're a beautiful woman... but maybe your look isn't what they want, and I don't mean your skin colour. There are dozens of stunning women turned down for VS every year. I hope you have a fantastic career regardless. May discrimination finally become an unbelievable hostory story some day.

I don't understand why people have to be so judgemental about color. It's just SKIN people, SKIN. Color can't define anyone's personality
Alicia Schrank (6 months ago)
she is the most beautiful girl i have ever seen
Capitals fan (6 months ago)
Titerally no one cares that your trans or colored. she racist. Her hate isnt because she black like Wat TF. But i just had to say that. I think she is beautiful, i just got so mad over this video.

You mean black? Because Carmen Carrera is latina and a poc

She's probably to late, since they are all supposedly Transgenders. That's Victorias Secret!

haylee garbin (8 months ago)
She is so gorgeous, and I support you follow your dream, because I feel like Victoria secret body shames and discriminate people of color and they say " you need to be this tall or you need to be lighter" I'm 13 and pale as a ghost and I still support her
Gina M (8 months ago)

leftyla (9 months ago)
She's passable, but I don't think she's the model type. She's "mall girl" pretty. Yes, I'm judging her looks because that's what she's offering. No shade.

"I'm trying to be..." "I started last Monday on twitter..." ...seriously? If I want to be something I don't just write it on Twitter and hope someone takes notice. Good things take time, and if you do enough work, the brand will be coming to you, and you won't be on buzzfeed hoping to make the news with your dream from last Monday.

You're too late, the secret of Victoria Secret is that they are ALL transgenders. They always have been. None of those women are real biological women.
