Brazilian transgender model Valentina Sampaio has become clothing chain Victoria Secret’s first transgender model.

After Sampaio announced the news on Instagram, ET Online reported that it confirmed the move with Victoria’s Secret:

“The 22-year-old model and actress is their first transgender model. She’s one of many models and campus reps featured in the current VS PINK back-to-campus campaign, the source says.

“Additionally, Sampaio's agent, Erio Zanon, confirms to ET that she will be featured in the new Pink campaign that's set to be released in mid-August.”

“The confirmation comes after Sampaio took to Instagram last week to share a pic of herself at a Victoria's Secret shoot. ‘Backstage click,’ she wrote alongside the photo of herself in a white robe, even tagging the lingerie company.”

In March of 2017, Sampaio became the first transgender model to appear on a cover of Vogue magazine (Vogue Paris).
