Since appearing on America’s Next Top Model in 2014, Harlow has cultivated an unapologetic social presence and has regularly walked for coveted fashion houses across the world. As a body-positive activist, she has spoken openly of her vitiligo, a skin condition that causes pigmentation loss in certain patches of the skin. Winnie declared that it has been her dream to walk for Victoria’s Secret and the 5.5 million viewers the show has amassed. “Why is there a stigma around being different when we’re all different?” Harlow said. “It’s the pinnacle of my career…I told anyone [who] asked, ‘I want Victoria’s Secret!’”
