Three years af­ter her ac­ci­dent Corrine (33) wears her scars with pride. She was left with se­vere burns af­ter a cor­ro­sive liq­uid used for un­block­ing drains slipped out of her hands and broke, splash­ing its con­tent on her chin and face. “I in­stantly felt like I was on fire, so I rushed into the shower while my hus­band called an am­bu­lance,” she re­calls. Since then she’s had two skin grafts and is still un­der­go­ing laser treat­ment to im­prove the ap­pear­ance of her scars. Corrine has been in­volved with a num­ber of Sylvia Mac’s cam­paigns, in­clud­ing a beach re­veal in Au­gust last year. She’s proud to be tak­ing a stand against the fash­ion world’s nar­row def­i­ni­tion of beauty. “To­day we showed Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret that di­ver­sity is im­por­tant in the fash­ion in­dus­try and that our voices will be heard,” she wrote on In­sta­gram.
