THE DIS­RUP­TOR

Harper’s Bazaar (Australia) - - Beauty -

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.
