Style Crush | Angolan Model Maria Borges

Our style crush today is Maria Borges. When I say style I am not just referring to the individuals sense of style but the all round nature & achievement of the individual. 
Maria made history and became wildly known after she became the first black model to rock her natural hair at the Victoria Secret Fashion show in November 2015. Since then Maria has been unstoppable walking high profile shows including  Armani,  Moschino, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Kenzo, JasonWu, Jeremy Scott and many others.

The 23 year old Angolan native says she would love to meet the Obamas one day, as they are her inspiration and aims to be like Naomi Campbell.

She has legs for yearsssss

She has also been featured in various editorials including Vogue Brazil x Italia x Spain, Harper's Bazaar, Financial times, LOVE, etc

Maria says she visits home in Angola from time to time to do modelling but her parents still want her to complete her

Way to go Maria, keep paving the way for models of color like us, we want to be like you when we grow up.
