Giggling up a storm as she stared at herself in a full-length mirror, Winnie oozed body confidence as she shed most of her clothes.

Draping a forest green statement coat off her shoulder, the beauty exposed the other half of her impeccable physique. 

Making sure she did not to reveal too much, she cupped one of her assets with her hand, while her skimpy underwear worked to enhance her behind.

A pair of camel-coloured thigh-high boots perfectly complemented her toned legs as she captured the snap, which she captioned: ‘Girls just wanna have fun.’

The rising model, who is 5ft 9in, was diagnosed with vitiligo around the age of four, making her among one per cent of the population who has the condition. 

In an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine, she revealed: ‘Kids called me a cow and mooed at me. I remember sitting by my window wishing upon the stars that my skin condition would go away.’

She was physically taunted later in life and said a group of girls ‘jumped her’ in a fight, which led to her being suspended because she started skipping class. She dropped out of school at the age of 17 and never looked back.

Winnie, who was working at a call centre, was scouted on Facebook and was quickly snapped up to star in a string of campaigns and music videos. 

When she excelled on the 21st series of America’s Next Top Model, judge Tyra Banks said that Winnie’s skin breaks down barriers of what is considered beautiful.

Now Winnie, who describes her self as a ‘vitiligo spokesmodel’ on Instagram, is being celebrated for her distinctive look.

Her striking good looks have even caught the eye of Formula One hunk Lewis Hamilton and the pair have frequently been spotted partying together – but they have never confirmed a romantic relationship.
