Winnie Harlow might have the model looks, but without a doubt it's her empowering, badass, and self-loving attitude towards her body we love most.

This morning, the 23-year-old posted a stunning photograph of herself in a nude-coloured thong, showing off her rare skin condition vitiligo while taking a powerful stance in front of a mirror.

She proudly captioned the photo: 'The real difference isn't my skin. It's the fact that I don't find my beauty in the opinions of others. I'm beautiful because I know it. Celebrate your unique beauty today (& everyday)!'

Just give us a second while we give a standing ovation for Harlow's confidence and self-love in this snap.

Winnie's followers took to the picture to praise the model for the snap, with one commenter writing: 'You're too beautiful for this world'. Another commented: 'Thank you for inspiring us.'

The 5ft 9in model was first diagnosed with the skin condition - which is a long-term condition where pale white patches develop on the skin and affects just one per cent of the population - when she was aged four, and recently opened up about the bullying she endured as a child coming to terms with her unique looks.

'Kids called me a cow and mooed at me. I remember sitting by my window wishing upon the stars that my skin condition would go away,' she recently told Cosmopolitan.

The model's comments come months after she stunned in a dramatic sapphire blue gown at the Cannes Film Festival in May, weeks after she'd opened up to ELLE Canada about her dislike to being referred to as a role model.

'I feel like I am an inspiration. That's the word I prefer,' she explained.

Well, she's certainly inspiring us to love our bodies today.
