The world-renowned underwear brand Victoria's Secret announced that Brazilian model Valentina Sampaio is joining the angels' squad. In November 2018, Ed Razek, marketing manager of the brand, said it was impossible for a transgender model to take part in Victoria's Secret show and gathered great criticism for his comments. After the unfortunate announcement, Victoria's Secret was facing unstoppable fluctuations and rating losses of the VS Show, which broke records for many years. It was also announced that they would no longer perform the glorious shows. It appears that the brand has taken a major step back to avoid the arrows pointing to it, and, for the first time in its history, it has decided to work with the shemale model Valentina Sampaio for Victoria's Secret Pink.
The 22-year-old model Valentina Sampaio, known to have changed gender at an early age, experienced the first leap of her career in 2016 by being selected as L'Oreal Paris beauty ambassador. The beautiful model then appeared on the covers of world-famous magazines like L'Officiel and in many fashion shows. Valentina Sampaio announced the news to her followers with a note on her official Instagram account: Don't stop dreaming.
