Once again, Rihanna reigns at the Met Gala. The models did not fit Razek's idea of a Victoria's Secret model. Who is y'all publicist??

To even entertain the idea that trans people aren't the ideal? And that could mean a lot to a lot of people. Razek recently gave an interview to Vogue about the show, the brand, and its place in a lingerie market that now includes more inclusive and diverse brands, like Rihanna's Fenty. It's rare these days to see such a bald-faced embrace of an obvious-if-unpopular truth.

That runway no longer gets to be an arbiter of what is sexy. And to say that plus sized models aren't desired either?

It will continue to promote and cater to a very specific Hadid-esque body type.
