Leomie Anderson is Victoria's Secret's newest angel!
The 26-year-old London model made the announcement on Instagram, writing: Mate I am still in shock...this is something I was even scared to dream about because I never thought it would come true but I am insanely excited to announce that I am Victoria’s Secret’s newest ANGEL!!"
Victoria's Secret also took to the brand's Instagram and Twitter accounts to make the announcement, congratulating Anderson and welcoming her to the Angel family. Anderson joins Barbara Palvin and Alexina Graham as the latest Angels to join this year.
The brand's choice was praised online, with fans applauding Leomie for her new role. Others remained sceptical of the brand.
Recently, Victoria's Secret has come under fire for what many have considered an outdated vision, on top of continued criticism over the annual Fashion Show's lack of diversity.
Last November, Ed Razek, chief marketing officer of L Brands told Vogue.com that he doesn't think the Victoria's Secret show should include plus-size or transgender models. The comments were met with fury online, and Razek was forced to apologise.
However, many people see Anderson's casting as a step in the right direction. Not only is she a model, but she's also the founder and designer of the athleisure line L.A.P.P., and Fashionista reports that she an activist who has lobbied for diversity and inclusion in fashion.
