The stunning star ensured all eyes would be on her as she sashayed down the catwalk whilst smouldering for the cameras.

Winnie - who has vitiligo, a long-term condition where pale white patches develop on the skin - looked phenomenal in a black bustier that was teamed with cropped trousers. 

Strutting past in towering heels, the Canadian model accessorised with a heavily fringed bag and giant gold hooped earrings. 

Winnie finished off the look by styling her glossy raven locks in a slick ponytail and boasting a sweep of scarlet lipstick.
