Winnie, who first shot to fame on the 21st season of America’s Next Top Model, looked sensational in Bovan’s upcoming collection and oozed confidence while modelling the very distinctive look.
She had been diagnosed with vitiligo around the age of four and has gone on to become a spokesperson for the condition, frequently speaking out about the topic.
Despite her insecurities as a child, the starlet hasn’t let the condition hold her back and is highly considered as one of the most in-demand models of the moment.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine, she recalled: ‘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.
‘Everyone asks me what the turning point was but it was just me making the effort to focus on my opinion on myself.
‘I was like, wait I don’t actually think I’m ugly – I think I’m beautiful. So where did I get this idea I wasn’t? From someone else.’
Winnie recently told Fashion magazine: ‘The true meaning of being a trailblazer is not just walking the path; it’s making that path easier for others to walk.
‘I remember the first time I saw a model with vitiligo get a job after I had pretty much been the only one.

Vitiligo is an autoimmune disease that causes patches of skin to lose color or pigmentation, according to the National Institutes of Health.
After the other model with the same condition was hired for a job, Winnie said she received comments from people saying, ‘Winnie Harlow, watch your back’ or ‘This girl is coming for your job.’
However, Winnie insisted: ‘But the whole point of me doing what I do is so that I can cry tears of joy to see someone who looks like me.’
