Let's face it: whether we're super thin or plus-sized, we'll never look like the models that walk the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. So, that's precisely why sisters Alyse and Lexi Scaffidi decided to put on their own fashion show – an “Anti-Victoria’s Secret” Fashion Show. No, Harry Styles and Bella Hadid did not make an appearance, but it did feature 21 non-models dressed in lingerie.

“Every year we watch the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and you start to look at the models and compare that to yourself,” Alyse says in a YouTube clip. “You start to think, ‘I’ll never look like that, no matter what I do that’s not who I am' and realistically that’s not what most of the world looks like.”

Aside from the fact that the women – of all shapes, sizes, ages, and ethnicities – strutted their stuff like they were true professionals, it was Alyse and Lexi's commentary before and after the show that had as feeling ALL the feels. Seriously, it's beautiful!

“It doesn’t matter if your 5ft tall or 6ft tall, 100 pounds, 200 pounds if you’re 20 or 60, you are beautiful and the story, the scars, the things that make you distinct are what is beautiful about you,” she added. “Love who you are as a person and be willing and proud to show that off.”

PREACH, girls! Not only did the sisters promote body positivity, but their version of the show was incredible! See for yourself in the video below:

Meanwhile, model Ashley Graham took her own stand against Victoria's Secret by sharing a photo of herself wearing photoshopped angel wings.

Got my wings! 🦋💐🌈😜 .. my #AdditionElle wings! #thickthighssavelives

Now if that isn't shade, then we don't know what is! However, this isn't the first time that Ashley has spoken out about having plus-sized models walk Victoria's Secret runway. Last year, she told TMZ, “When Victoria's Secret calls me and asks me to walk on their runway, I'm going to say yes.” Unfortunately, they didn't call, so Ashley decided to improvise.

Hey! Here's an idea: maybe next year Ashley can walk the runway in the Anti-Victoria's Secret Fashion Show since Alyse and Lexi plan to do it again!
