Winnie, who last month jetted off to Tokyo’s very first Beautycon, has openly discussed the changes in the modelling industry and the standards of beauty.

During to ELLE Magazine she said: ‘There is a big shift happening in the fashion industry in terms of beauty standards, and I feel I’m part of that shift.

‘I remember on America’s Next Top Model, Tyra Banks asked me if a photographer told me to cover my skin for a shoot, would I do it?

‘I said no. I don’t care who it is, or who thinks I should. I’m going to stay true to myself.’ 

Winnie was first propelled into the limelight after being discovered by model Tyra Banks on Instagram and being asked to appear on her show-America’s Next Top Model in 2014.

The model went on to finish in sixth place on the series.

The star recently defended herself over comments she made about her time as a contestant on the show and perceived criticism of host Tyra, 45.

Winnie wrote on Instagram: ‘After being on the show no one would book me and no agency would sign me because of the reality TV stigma…

‘It has nothing to do with being ungrateful, and more over nothing to do with “shade” to Tyra. She was the first person of higher status to make me feel like I could be a model and not only am I grateful for that, it’s something I’ll never forget.’
