For anyone who’s ever called Winnie Harlow’s vitiligo an unfortunate disease, they’re sorely mistaken. The Canadian beauty recently posted photos of herself bikini clad on Instagram, including shots from her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2019 photoshoot. It’s the model’s first time being featured in the coveted issue and she looks fuego. Her body looks like a walking canvas, with her skin as the artistic detail painted with the most-skilled hand.

She also expressed her gratitude and excitement for being able to wear her natural curls, and for working with a black female photographer for the first time. The issue just dropped in May, and Harlow is vying for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2019 Rookie of the Year. Based on these photos, she’s a shoo-in.
