When we found out that Zuri Tibby was selected as the new face of Victoria’s Secret PINK, we were beyond thrilled. The 19-year-old model has one of those casting stories that you never believe could actually be true: She was scouted at her local mall in Florida.
Prior to scoring this amazing opportunity, Tibby was a huge fan of the brand and shopped the line frequently. And not only does she get to be the face of a company of which she genuinely loves, but also Tibby is also the first woman of color to have the honor.
We caught up with Tibby during the PINK Nation tour stop in Dallas for the Alabama vs. USC game. (If you’re promoting college gear, might as well get the full-on college experience.) Learn more about her journey so far with the brand in the interview, below.
