Pretty as a PINK-cture! Victoria Secret announced Zuri Tibby as the newest face of their PINK line. She will be featured in editorials and events and looked at as the headline for PINK.
Not only is it exciting to get a fresh face for the brand, but one that is making history is definitely worth turning an eye towards.
This 21-year-old Florida native is crossing barriers by becoming the first black spokemodel EVER for the brand!
Yes...there have been black models that have walked the V.S. runway shows and featured in ad collections, but none have ever been the face of PINK such as Tibby.
She is breaking down barriers and creating pathways (or runways) for young girls who aspire to one day be where she is.
"It's so important to inspire people. When young girls look at magazines and advertisements, it's important to see girls that look like them. It's very encouraging". Tibby stated, according to Cosmopolitan's Maya Allen.
We are thrilled that she knows the platform that she stands on and is using it to advocate change; such as the ever oh so delicate subject of natural hair.
Zuri stated how she is pushing to see more natural hair on the runway such as model Maria Borges sported at last year Victoria Secret Show and is hoping to one day too do the same.
"Natural hair is something everyone should embrace. It's celebrated more now then it ever has been before."
This beauty is defiantly one that is not afraid to represent and is one to be on the look out for on the cover of your next magazine.
