Huffington Post - 2 months
When Jasmine Tookes modeled the coveted “fantasy bra” at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on Monday, it marked only the third time in the show’s 21-year run that a woman of color was chosen to make the brand’s ultimate fashion statement.  That disparity reflects a pattern rampant in high fashion, where diversity is on the rise but startlingly far from the norm.
