The transgender model has appeared in many editorials and strutted on Givenchy runways. In 2014, she also became the face of Redken, making her the first openly transgender model for a global cosmetics brand.
A 19-year-old model with vitiligo, a chronic skin disease that causes loss of skin colour in blotches, Winnie put up a YouTube video in 2011 where she spoke candidly about the disease and that led her to enter ‘America’s Next Top Model’. She just landed in a Spring campaign with Diesel and is walking runways around the world.
Challenged with muscular dystrophy, you’ll see in campaigns for Diesel and Nordstrom. And although she uses a wheelchair, her modelling game’s on point!

A successful androgynous male model and now a transgender woman, she appears on multiple runways for Jean Paul Gaultier. She walks in both men’s and women’s shows and boldly describes herself as living “in between genders”.
Famous for her role on ‘American Horror Story’, this 30-year-old actor was the first model with Down Syndrome to ever walk in the New York Fashion Week. Her part in Carrie Hammer’s ‘Role Models Not Runway Models’ campaign was a step forward in being a role model and encourage women to show who they are.
