Carmen Carrera Stuns In Mike Ruiz Photo Shoot

Posted: Updated:

Transgender model and "RuPaul's Drag Race" season three contestant Carmen Carrera unexpectedly became the face of a petition last month to make her to first transgender Victoria's Secret Angel.

“It’s time for a change," Carrera previously told HuffPost Live. "It’s time to embrace women from all walks of life."

Unfortunately, Victoria's Secret did not acknowledge the petition, which garnered almost 45,000 signatures from supporters -- and the annual Victoria's Secret fashion show is tonight.

However, that didn't stop Logo, NewNowNext and Mike Ruiz from wanting to showcase the bombshell that is Carmen Carrera. "In honor of the [Victoria's Secret Fashion Show], we would love to show off an angel of our own," Logo told The Huffington Post in a statement.

Check out a behind-the-scenes video from the photo shoot above!
