Models With Vitiligo Redefining Beautiful Skin On Instagram

These are a few of the girls on our radar.

An even complexion used to be the most sought after look in beauty and skincare. But with the rise of freckle appreciation also came an appreciation for the beautiful women who are owning the skin condition, vitiligo, which is the loss of skin color in blotches. Winnie Harlow, the Canadian model who was discovered on America’s Next Top Model has navigated this terrain flawlessly since appearing in i-D, Dazed, Complex, Cosmopolitan, and Vogue Italia.

There are models and influencers trailing after the path that she’s set as beautiful women with vitiligo in the sometimes superficial worlds of beauty and fashion.
