We experienced history being rewritten at the last Victoria Secrets Fashion Runway Show which held in New York when Winnie Harlow walked the runway. It was a truly amazing sight as Winnie became the first model with vitiligo, a skin condition which causes parts of the skin to lose pigmentation, for Victoria Secrets.
The 24 year old Canadian model took her first strides on the runway wearing a pink underwear set adorned with a feather detail, complete with a glistening silver camisole. She once again came on the runway with a with a floral design cut-out cat suit worn over a matching balconette bra and a yellow trim.
Winnie’s cat suit featured stirrup leggings, long gloved sleeves and very high floral mules. To add more glitz o her already smashing look was a pair of chandelier earrings which popped off her chestnut hair. You could tell that Winnie was excited at the opportunity as she shared a snap she took backstage with the caption, “Almost that time! So excited to make my debut Let the @victoriassecret show begin!!”
Winnie, who is a former contestant of America’s Top Model was full of sensuality and confidence as she took strides on the runway. Before the show Winnie told People, “I have to admit, my nerves are a little bit higher than they usually are. I’ve cried a lot but mostly tears of happiness. This is the first major show I’ve done that will be broadcasted across the world on TV, which raises the stakes big time. But I’m more excited than anything else.”
This year’s Victoria Secrets Fashion Runway Show is the first time Winnie is walking for a lingerie brand.
