Canadian model with vitiligo featured by Desigual for Fall-Winter 2014

Desigual.Abrigo-mysterious.coat.worn.by.Winnie.HarlowDesigual has chosen a teenage model from Canada with a rare skin condition to show off some of its Fall-Winter collection for 2014.

Chantelle Brown-Young of Toronto was diagnosed with vitiligo before she started school. She grew up bullied by kids who cruelly nicknamed her “zebra” and “cow” because of the white patches covering her face and body.

Chantelle, whose real name is Winnie Harlow, is a contestant on the TV show America’s Next Top Model, where she made this video, explaining, “A lot of people have a story or a background but mine is painted on my body”:She first made a video about her skin condition in 2011 called Vitiligo: A Skin Condition, Not a Life Changer:She describes herself as a “vitiligo spokesmodel.” Click here to learn more info about the skin condition, including Famous Vitigans such as Michael Jackson. Here are a few more of the Desigual photos from fall featuring Winnie Harlow:

Last night, I went to see the fabulous new film Boyhood by Rick Linklater, whose previous films include Slacker (his first film to catch my attention), Dazed and Confused, Waking Life and the trilogy Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight, which were made over a 17-year period. His new film was made over a 12-year period with the same cast, showing the evolution of a boy from age six to 18, when he goes off to college.

Today’s song is Hero by Family of the Year, from the Boyhood soundtrack:Here’s another song from the film — Do You Realize? by the Flaming Lips:
