Abuja – Canadian supermodel, Winnie Harlow 24, made history as the first model with vitiligo to walk the runway at Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Vitiligo is a long-term skin condition characterized by patches of the skin losing their pigment becoming white and usually have sharp margins.
The model and girlfriend of American rapper Wiz Khalifa stormed the runway in pink underwear set with feather detail and shimmery silver camisole on Thursday night in New York.
The model later made a second appearance rocking a floral cut-out cat suit over a matching balconette bra with yellow trim.
‘I have to admit, my nerves are a little bit higher than they usually are,’ she told People.com before the show.
‘I’ve cried a lot but mostly tears of happiness. This is the first major show I’ve done that will be broadcasted across the world on TV, which raises the stakes big time.
‘But I’m more excited than anything else,’ she explained.
Similarly, Swedish supermodel Elsa Hosk also walked the runway in a glittering $1million (N360million) Fantasy Bra consisting of more than 2,100 jewels at the event.
According to reports, this year’s Atelier Swarovski-designed Dream Angels Fantasy Bra is worth $1 million and includes a matching body chain.
The bra was made with over 2,100 Swarovski lab-created synthetic diamonds, as well as topaz and sterling silver, with more than 71 carats, including a particularly large gem at the center took over 930 hours to make.
Also supermodels Kendall Jenner, sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid alongside others commanded attention in sexy lingeria during a sparkling performance at the event.
