5. In an Instagram pic, she wrote, “AFRICA, this one is for you! I LOVE YOU.”

“Chère Afrique bien aimée… #MBmakinghistory #afrohair #bigwings #vsfashionshow #vsfs2015 #AFRICA.”

6. Prior to the Angolan supermodel, there had never been a black model to rock her natural hair in its Afro state on the VS runway.
