Priyanka Chopra, Megan Rapinoe, and five other women have joined Victoria Secret as the brand undergoes a major transformation.

Introducing Priyanka Chopra and the other new members, Victoria’s Secret posted on their Instagram page, “We are proud to announce an exciting new partnership platform, #TheVSCollective, designed to shape the future of Victoria’s Secret. These extraordinary partners, with their unique backgrounds, interests and passions will collaborate with us to create revolutionary product collections, compelling and inspiring content, new internal associate programs and rally support for causes vital to women.”
According to the New York Times, Priyanka Chopra and the other six women will model for the company, advise it, and promote it on social media. The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has often been chastised for being overly sexualized. Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Lily Aldridge, and Alessandra Ambrosio are among the featuring supermodels.
