WINNIE HARLOW, MODEL
Harlow first made the world snap to attention in 2014 on cycle 21 of America’s Next Top Model.the Canadian, whose real name is Chantelle Brown-young, didn’t win the crown, but she’s since changed the modelling game. One of the most recognisable faces on the international fashion circuit, at 23, she’s walked for Marc Jacobs and Julien Macdonald, luminesced in Beyoncé’s visual album Lemonade, landed a beauty gig with natural powerhouse Burt’s Bees and has just been signed as an ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger. Oh, and she has vitiligo, a condition that depigments patches of skin.though she was teased so relentlessly in high school that she dropped out, Harlow says approaching supermodel status isn’t a clap back at bullies; she’s more about raising the bar, pushing the conversation about diversity wide open.and with 3.4 million fans on Instagram, she’s not scared to speak up.when a London tabloid called her a “vitiligo sufferer”, Harlow ’grammed a response:“i’m not a ‘Vitiligo Sufferer’. … I am Winnie. I am a model. And I happen to have vitiligo. Stop putting these titles on me or anyone else.” Go disrupt, girl.
