Maria Borges VS backstage TWA

Last month, she made headlines for rocking her natural afro on the Victoria’s Secret runway, but we still can’t get enough of Maria Borges’ gorgeous TWA (aka “teeny weeny afro)! And with tonight’s VS fashion show airing, we can’t wait to see it on the catwalk ourselves!

Maria Borges VS runway TWA

Though a TWA may be very short, there are many ways to style it up. But Borges definitely prefers the simplicity of a fluffy brushed back ‘fro and it works! The effortless look complements her thick brows and adorably fresh baby face.

As chic as she is, the 23 year old admitted that she was a bit nervous to wear her natural curls on the VS runway. “I told my agent I wanted to walk in the Victoria’s Secret show with my natural hair,” Borges told Essence. “I was nervous, but I had to do it. When they said ‘yes’ I didn’t expect it, but I was so happy!” In previous years, the Angolan top model wore long wavy hair extensions for the sexy catwalk.
