Vitiligo model makes history as she walks Victoria’s Secret fashion show

Canadian supermodel, Winnie Harlow 24, made history as the first model with vitiligo to walk the runway at Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

Vitiligo is a long-term skin condition characterized by patches of the skin losing their pigment becoming white and usually have sharp margins.

The model walked the runway in pink underwear set with feather detail and shimmery silver camisole on Thursday night in New York.

The model later made a second appearance rocking a floral cut-out catsuit over a matching balconette bra with yellow trim.

“I have to admit, my nerves are a little bit higher than they usually are,’ she told the People magazine before the show.

“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,’ she explained.
