"Finally!" commented OITNB's Laverne Cox on transgender model Valentina Sampaio's Instagram post announcing that she will be Victoria's Secret's first trans model!

The announcement is a 180 from last year's headline when VS chief marketing office Ed Razek made transphobic remarks and said a transgender woman would never walk the runway for Victoria’s Secret. He was wrong!

Unfortunately the moment won't be broadcast to the masses as it was announced in May that the iconic runway show will no longer air on TV. A statement at the time read, "We have decided to re-think the traditional Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Going forward we don’t believe network television is the right fit."

Still, Sampaio will appear in some fashion for the lingerie brand, be in print, digital or both. And it's not the first modeling barrier she's broken ... back in 2017 she was the first transgender model to ever appear on the cover of any edition of Vogue. She was featured on the May 2017 French Vogue cover -- that's F-ing BIG!
