Black Women Were Fit And Fierce At The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

The sistahs were out and in full force on the runway at last night’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion show in Shanghai, China. They were a diverse bunch, with ladies rocking full afros, TWA, curls, weaves, bald heads and whatever other hairstyles your mind can conjure up. It was a sight to see. And while their looks may have been varied, what the women all had in common were two things: they sure knew how to strut, and their bodies were quite fit. Legs long and toned, abs tight and arms lean, they didn’t come to play. But before you assume I’m saying you need to look like a Victoria’s Secret supermodel, I’m not. What I am saying is that the months spent training intensely, which VS Fashion Show models are known for, paid off greatly. All of the models looked beautiful, but you know we had our eyes on the Black women doing their thing. Check them out in their most fit and fabulous moments at last night’s show, and be sure to tune in when it airs on CBS on November…

I am a future butterfly at the stage of growth when I am turning into an adult. I am enclosed in a hard case shell formed by love, family, and friends. It is the hardest stage of becoming a black butterfly. You will encounter many hardships only to come out stronger and better than what you went in. At this stage, you are finding out who you truly are and how to love yourself.

What Does It Mean To Be “Black Butterfly Beautiful”

The image of the butterfly has come to define the many expressions of the feminine black consciousness and for a good reason. The butterfly is the perfect articulation of the exquisite beauty of nature. Whether tiny or large, brightly colored or more subdued, the butterfly’s allure is undeniable. Each one displays its own unique patterns and hues, and no one species outshines any other.

Similarly, there is no one ideal image of a black woman -- each is gorgeous in her right. All African-Americans share a glorious history of struggle and perseverance that has funneled into the modern black renaissance. And, like the graceful butterfly, the awakened black woman exemplifies the dazzling beauty of that cultural evolution.
