Winnie is the first model with vitiligo – a skin condition that causes patches of pigmentation loss on the skin – to walk the runway for the lingerie giant.

Taking her first strides out onto the runway, the 24-year-old Canadian beauty was positively gorgeous in a pink underwear set with feather detail and shimmery silver camisole.

Later she stunned in a floral cut-out catsuit over a matching balconette bra with yellow trim.

Winnie’s outfit featured long gloved sleeves and stirrup leggings which she wore with sky-high floral mules.

Adding extra glitz to her look were a pair of statement chandelier earrings which stood out against her chestnut brown locks.

Elated about her first VS Fashion Show Winnie shared a snap from backstage as she got glammed up.

Sitting in a pink director’s chair with a full view of her pert derriere, the star captioned the saucy snap: ‘Almost that time! So excited to make my debut Let the @victoriassecret show begin!!’

The former America’s Next Top Model contestant exuded confidence and sensuality as she looked back over her shoulder in the Victoria’s Secret branded pink chair.

‘I have to admit, my nerves are a little bit higher than they usually are,’ she told People before the show.

‘I’ve cried a lot but mostly tears of happiness. This is the first major show I’ve done that will be broadcasted across the world on TV, which raises the stakes big time.

‘But I’m more excited than anything else,’ she explained.

The 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show marks Winnie’s first time walking for the lingerie brand.

But it wasn’t the smoothest ride to the top for Winnie, revealing at the time of the announcement that she had a panic attack before her audition.

‘I had a break down before i walked into the most nerve wrecking casting of my life,’ she wrote on Instagram.

‘I asked my driver to go around the block twice before i could walk into the @VictoriasSecret offices so i could re coup, and remember (while my trainer @bodybymato reminded me on the phone through sobs – thank you lol) how hard I’ve been working!’

Winnie continued: ‘When it was finally my time, within my nervous storm of anticipation i changed into a black Victoria Secret set and stepped out!!!!”

‘I spoke to them about Jamaica, @nick_knight , my abs, and how i was beyond honoured to be given the opportunity to try out.. then I walked for my life!!!! I can’t believe this!! Thank you for giving me all the energy and kindness in that room! Thank you for allowing me to walk for VICTORIA’S SECRET!’
