Yalitza Aparicio embraces body positivity as she models for Victoria's Secret, highlighting diversity in the fashion world.

Yalitza Aparicio, who burst onto the international scene in 2018 with her Oscar-nominated performance in Alfonso Cuarón’s “Roma,” has once again made headlines. This time, it’s not for her acting prowess, but for her recent foray into the world of high fashion.

The 29-year-old actress recently became the first Mexican in the modern era to join the coveted ranks of Victoria’s Secret Angels. In a black lingerie set, Aparicio took to social media to showcase a confident and provocative side of her that many of her fans had not previously seen.

“I would love for the new generations to accept themselves as they are, and to realize that diversity is also beautiful. Wearing Victoria’s Secret lingerie makes me feel confident, unique, and powerful.”

Social media was quick to respond to Aparicio’s new campaign. Comments like “a Mexican super icon”, “She does represent the real woman”, and “breaking paradigms” flooded in, celebrating the actress’s bold move.

A Legacy of Mexican Models

While Aparicio’s accomplishment is notable, she isn’t the first Mexican to model for Victoria’s Secret. The 90s saw model Elsa Benitez gracing the brand’s campaigns. However, Aparicio’s recent involvement signals a fresh direction for the lingerie brand, aligning more closely with body positivity and diversity.
