    Winnie Harlow

    Role Model Winnie Harlow is not just a global supermodel but an advocate for acceptance and inclusivity with a career typified with firsts.



    At four, Winnie was diagnosed with Vitiligo, a skin condition that has made her one of the most recognisable faces on the planet but this is only a fraction of what she represents. Winnie is redefining the global definition of beauty and changing the fashion landscape forever by trailblazing a new era of inclusivity, acceptance and confidence.



    She is currently the global ambassador for Puma, Paul Mitchell Hair’s first ever global ambassador and is making a move into acting and TV. This July will also see Winnie as a judge on Amazon's 'Making The Cut' season 2 alongside Heidi Klum and Jeremy Scott. Winnie is the definition of a Role Model.

🌟 Role Model 🌟

I’ve been a fan of Leomie for a long time, and her podcast didn’t disappoint. Her conversation about being considered a “diva” with Winnie Harlow was really interesting, looking forward to hearing more episodes!
