Zuri Tibby Brings #BlackGirlMagic to Victoria’s Secret PINK

Less than a month after joining the Victoria’s Secret team, 21-year-old Zuri Tibby has become the first Black spokesmodel for the PINK brand.

For decades, Black girls have been excluded from runways and the general elite fashion scene, and even with the recent uptick in ethnic diversity — natural hair styles slayed fashion week last September and NYFW for fall 2016 “was the most diverse season in recent history” — Black models still don’t get cast as much as their white counterparts,  makeup artists still don’t always have the right shades for dark skin, and incidents of cultural appropriation still go down. In fact, this past Thursday (September 15), Marc Jacobs sent white models down the runway wearing faux dreadlocks made of wool.

So #BlackGirlMagic as the official face of PINK? We are more than here for it.

In a recent interview with W magazine, Zuri said, “A lot of young girls … look at PINK and shop there and see someone you know and [think], ‘Oh, that looks like me, and ‘Oh, I have the same hair as her.’ I think it’s good to be able to look like that.”

  1. So glad to read about your magazine. I read about the magazine in the Free Lance Star (Stafford, VA) newspaper. I was wondering do you have an inspirational section in your magazine?

    thanking you in advance for your response.
