    Victoria's Secret is facing backlash for their lack of body diversity at its annual end of year fashion show.

    Model Ashley Graham, who made history last year for being the first plus-sized model to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, took to Instagram posting a doctored photo of her wearing the iconic angel wings with the tongue-in-cheek caption, “Got my wings!”

    Graham, who has spoken openly about body positivity and has her own lingerie line with Addition Elle for women sized between 12 and 26, has said she would “Absolutely” model for the brand if asked, but wants to still advocate for curvier women. 

    Many took to social media to call out the lingerie company for only showing models of a particular size.

    For the first time, this year’s show took place in Shanghai.
