It is already known that models Emily Ratzkowski, Joan Smalls, Alec Vek, actress Vanessa Hudgens and former Victoria's Secret angel Behati Prinsloo will also take part in the show, which is quite ironic, because it was Rihanna's brand, which relied on body positivity and diversity, in on the sidelines were called the Victoria's Secret “killer”.

Recall that a few years ago, Victoria's Secret lingerie brand, known for its colorful shows, faced criticism due to the fact that there are no transgender and plus-size models in its shows. VS tried to rectify the situation and presented the first inclusive campaign. But the troubles did not end there: in February 2020, models and employees of the brand spoke of harassment by former marketing director Ed Razek. It was he who once said that transgender people and plus-size models have no place at the Victoria's Secret show.
As a result, the brand radically revised its concept – this year it was announced that Victoria's Secret is abandoning the “angels”, and now women from various fields will represent the brand. Among them were actress Priyanka Chopra, football player Megan Rapino, transgender model Valentina Sampaio and other representatives of various professions from around the world: activists, models, artists.
