Winnie Harlow Makes History at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2018

Last night, Winnie Harlow made history as the first model with vitiligo to walk Victoria’s Secret runway.

Her appearance has been described as a step toward diversifying a runway that’s been famous in its limited representation of women.

And speaking with People about her inclusion in the 2018 show, Winnie said:

“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.”

Now, check out the photos from her history-making night, as shared by Getty:
