Winnie Harlow's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Debut Will Give You Chills


When Winnie Harlow hits the Victoria’s Secret runway for the
first time tonight, she’ll make history. As the first model with
vitiligo to
join VS’s cast of Angels
, Winnie’s appearance is a step toward
diversifying a runway that’s been notoriously limited in its
representation of women. And, that’s not lost on the model and
activist. Of
her inclusion in the 2018 show
, Winnie told
People:

“It means the world to me. Victoria’s Secret might be the
biggest show there is because of how many people are able to watch
it around the world, so to be a part of diversifying the Victoria’s
Secret Angel landscape is a true honor that I’m so proud of. Any
step towards a truly equal and diverse modeling industry is great,
but for a huge brand like Victoria’s Secret to include me as a
model with vitiligo is a huge step to normalizing it in the entire
industry. I’m glad to be the first, but part of me is also sad that
there weren’t any before me and I hope that there are many more in
the future. We need to work towards diversity, not for the sake of
it, but to make it the norm. And I hope this is a big step toward
that.”

Agreed. We’re all here for Winnie’s wings and this moment on the
runway, but here’s hoping it inspires progress, change, and
inclusion throughout the industry and on this stage going
forward.

Read on to see Winnie gearing up for the show backstage and
prepare to cheer with us all when she makes her way down that
runway for the very first time.
