After all the fêting that was unleashed at Monday night’s Met Gala, clearly the only thing to do was to fête some more.

The annual Victoria's Secret runway show aired Tuesday night, and it was the typical procession of lingerie'd models, impossibly tall and lean, marching like pegasus-gazelles, emboldened by gold-encrusted wings. Fly, fly away, beautiful models. Be free.

The latest is Jourdan Dunn, who told The Guardian that it's "lazy" for fashion editors to say…
Racism on the Fashion Week runway is well-documented, and even though NYFW 2012 was the most diverse in ages, some shows still displayed a glaring lack of diversity. It’s a problem that everyone in and around the industry is (or should be by now) hyper-aware of. Maybe awareness is being raised, but, at the same…
