Over the last few years, lingerie brand Victoria's Secret has made headlines across the globe for their glaring lack of diversity. This year, the company switched things up and clearly got with the winning team. This has to be their most diverse show YET!

First up? Let's discuss all the beauties that sashayed down the runway in their natural hair.

Maria revealed on Twitter that her costume was a love letter to the continent of Africa

Angolan beauty Maria Borges dazzled on the runway my friends, I mean she was just oozing sexy confidence. You may remember last year when she made waves across the Internet when she debuted her cropped cut.

This year we saw two more models join her on the natural hair tip - gorgeous gals Herieth Paul and Jourdana Philips also followed suit.

In addition to the natural hair movement on the runway, there were also four Chinese models- Liu Wen,  Xi Mengyao, Sui He, and Ju Xiaowen also in the VC show.
Yessssss! I am so here for all this diversity.

But wait there's more.

Let's take a look at all the other women of color featured in the show. There was model Zuri Tibby who kept it playful and sexy on the runway.
Jasmine Tookes wore the highly coveted multi-million dollar fantasy bra.
Cindy Bruna shimmied down the runway in this number.

And of course we have Queen Joan Smalls,

I hope one day we can even have women of different shapes on the show, now that would be ahhhmazing. I am glad to see a small shift from Victoria's Secret hope it continues to grow each year and that the entire fashion industry catches on.

The show will air on Dec 5th at 10pm on CBS! Will you be watching?
