She paired off the look with a black beanie that had a pair of angel wings, a black belt with the Louis Vuitton initials, blue jeans and knee-high black boots.
She had also worn a white face mask at the beginning but then took it off.

Victoria was seemingly unbothered just days after a video surfaced of one of Matt’s friends body-shaming her.
In the video, a friend named Jerry told Matt: “Now how was Victoria’s body?
“‘Cause when I look at her, it doesn’t look very nice … and you’ve been making out with this woman.”

“It’s just a constant reminder that you need to be smart about the people you surround yourself with.
“And those moments when you’re in sports and people are trying to say things to you to throw things off your game, it’s sad that someone would think saying something like that about a woman that I was dating would deter me from what I was trying to do.”
He continued: “I’ve said something to him off camera about it, something along the lines of ‘Victoria wouldn’t give him a second look.’ It’s always the pot calling the kettle black, you know?

“Who is he to comment on someone’s body? It’s such a low blow for any man to try and take a dig at something like that.”
“Matt added: “That’s not my character and that’s not what I’m about. It’s a shame that that’s even associated with what was going on. I apologize on his behalf. I don’t know if you’ll get it from him, but that’s not something I support or stand for.”
Following the video, Victoria also took to Instagram to slam the friend and shared a picture of herself in a black bikini, writing: “Tell me again how my body doesn’t look so good?”

She also commented on the surfaced video and wrote: “Cute … I love my body.”
The “villain” of Matt James’ season of the dating series has been getting more and more backlash from fans each week for “bullying” her co-stars and firing off “disgusting” comments.
It appears Bachelor Nation is not alone, as multiple sources close to Victoria claimed to The Sun that her family has had a difficult time watching her on TV.

The model and former Miss Florida said: “A lot of her family has been hard on her but it’s been a lot.
“Her family is now supportive but at first there was some initial shock.”
Another confidant of the controversial brunette claimed that her dad has been trying to be “supportive” of his daughter but has become “embarrassed” by what he’s seen.

The insider confessed that along with family, “her friends feel the same way.”
“We can’t defend her behavior at this point. She’s trying to act like she doesn’t care and that everything is fine in the ‘Queen’s’ world but really, she is mortified by all of this.”
However, the source claimed Victoria will never “admit” any shame and said she will continue to “act like everything is fine.”
She recently apologized for her behavior
“She won’t admit there’s truth to what’s being said,” the insider concluded.
Despite her lack of shame for her actions, Victoria apologized for her behavior on social media and said: “I think in my effort to make my opinions heard it may have been perceived as bullying by some, and I feel bad if my words or actions offended anyone.
“I take time each day to reflect and learn the lessons.”
A rep for Victoria did not immediately respond to The Sun’s request for comment.

While the self-proclaimed “Queen” pursues a career in beauty and wellness in Los Angeles, her family remains on the East Coast.
However, she’s posted several shots online over the years with her Dad, cousins and her “nan.”
In addition to her on-screen persona, last week, The Sun exclusively revealed that Victoria was previously arrested for shoplifting $250 worth of items from a Florida Publix grocery store.
