    In an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine, she revealed: ‘Kids called me a cow and mooed at me. I remember sitting by my window wishing upon the stars that my skin condition would go away.’

    She was physically taunted later in life and said a group of girls ‘jumped her’ in a fight, which led to her being suspended because she started skipping class.She dropped out of school at the age of 17 and never looked back.

    Winnie, who was working at a call centre, was scouted on Facebook and was quickly snapped up to star in a string of campaigns and music videos.

    When she excelled on the 21st series of America’s Next Top Model, judge Tyra Banks said that Winnie’s skin breaks down barriers of what is considered beautiful.

    Now Winnie, who describes her self as a ‘vitiligo spokesmodel’ on Instagram, is being celebrated for her distinctive look.

    Her striking good looks have even caught the eye of Formula One hunk Lewis Hamilton and the pair have frequently been spotted partying together – but they have never confirmed a romantic relationship.
