Heidi Klum pleased to see Victoria's Secret 'finally' embracing diversity

·1-min read

Heidi Klum has insisted it's "about time" bosses at Victoria's Secret embraced change.

Last month, leaders at the U.S. lingerie label announced plans to ditch the Angels and instead focus on a new group of ambassadors, to be known as The VS Collective.

Accordingly, Heidi has now shared that she is very pleased to hear the news.

"About time, is all I can say. About time," the 48-year-old commented during an interview for Australia's The Sunday Project. "As a model, you go there, you are happy to have a job. When you are not the company, you do what you are told. But finally, looking at this now, I'm like, 'About time!' You know, because things do need to change. They have been changing. It's been taking too long."

Heidi was the first German model to become a Victoria's Secret Angel. The blonde beauty hosted and appeared in numerous shows, until she parted ways with the brand in 2010 after a 13-year run.

The founding members of The VS Collective include Adut Akech, Amanda de Cadenet, Eileen Gu, Megan Rapinoe, Paloma Elsesser, Priyanka Chopra, and Valentina Sampaio.

"I'm beyond excited to partner with Victoria's Secret in this capacity and support our collective mission to embrace and celebrate the vastness and beauty of womanhood," Paloma shared of the rebranding at the time of the announcement. "My experience thus far has been one of reciprocity and care, and I can't wait to collaborate in a bigger way."

The debut campaign for The VS Collective is slated to drop later this year.
