Valentina Sampaio Is Reportedly Victoria's Secret's First Transgender Model

Valentina Sampaio is reportedly the first-ever transgender model for Victoria’s Secret!

The 22-year-old Brazilian model posted a picture on her Instagram with the caption: “Backstage click @vspink 💕💕” on Thursday (August 1).

Lais Ribiero commented on the post on Twitter, writing: “First transgender to shoot with Vs! This make me so happy! ❤️”

“Never stop dreaming genteee 💋💋💋 #staytuned #bastidores #new #vspink #campaign #representatividade #diversity” she captioned a video from the shoot.

Valentina was also the first transgender model to pose for any edition of Vogue with her Vogue Paris cover in February of 2017.

The news comes after reports that the 2019 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has been canceled following controversy after an executive of the brand said that trans models shouldn’t walk in the show.
