Despite slip brands like Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty – which sealed out New York Fashion Week with a different expel of women of all shapes, colors and sizes – and designers like Christian Siriano – who frequently dresses stars other designers exclude to outfit since of their distance – Victoria’s Secret still hasn’t changed past a one-(small)-size-fits-all genius when it comes to casting models.
