She’s made it her mission to represent people with skin conditions in the media, and last night she became the first model with vitiligo to walk the runway at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.Vitiligo is a skin disorder that causes pigment-free patches of skin to appear randomly on the body.

Victoria’s Secret might be the biggest show there is because of how many people are able to watch it around the world, so to be a part of diversifying the Victoria’s Secret Angel landscape is a true honor that I’m so proud of. Any step towards a truly equal and diverse modeling industry is great, but for a huge brand like Victoria’s Secret to include me as a model with vitiligo is a huge step to normalizing it in the entire industry. I’m glad to be the first, but part of me is also sad that there weren’t any before me and I hope that there are many more in the future. We need to work towards diversity, not for the sake of it, but to make it the norm. And I hope this is a big step toward that.” READ MORE WINNIE HARLOW SPILLED HER FAVE THING ABOUT CANADA AS SHE MADE HER VICTORIA’S SECRET DEBUTWinnie Harlow made her official Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show debut on Nov. 8 and couldn’t have done it with a bigger bang.
