Most of the Woman Crush Wednesday posts that I have done contain your typical crush-worthy woman. Shailene Woodley for her intelligence and ethics, Sarah Jessica Parker for her style and acting, and Beyonce because…well duh, it’s Beyonce. While I do love those women for all of those reasons and more, it’s time we step outside of the box.
Chantelle Winnie (also known as Winnie Harlow) is not your typical model and it is for that reason that I am crushing so hard on her. One look at Winnie and you can see why she is so different. Winnie has a chronic skin condition called Vitiligo which causes the skin to lose its pigment throughout the body. There are very few people (globally) who have Vitiligo, but Winnie is bringing the condition to the table and she is owning it!
This may not be the first time you have been introduced to this stunning lady. She was on the twenty first cycle of America’s Next Top Model and she has quite a number of modeling gigs under her belt already.
I chose black and white photos of Winnie for a reason; I wanted to show that it’s not the color of her skin that makes her so beautiful. While I do think that her skin adds character to her beauty, it is her message and courage that really shine.
