In the seven years since her breakout stint on Tyra Banks' hit show America's Next Top Model, Winnie Harlow has become an iconic figure in the fashion world, working with everyone from Dior and Fendi to Victoria’s Secret and even featuring in Beyoncé’s enigmatic visual album, Lemonade . As one of the new faces added to FIFA’s Volta Groundbreakers lineup, the supermodel has been transformed into a virtual character for the FIFA 21 world alongside players like Lewis Hamilton and Dua Lipa. Catching up with her friend, Brazilian artist Anitta for our Spring 2021 issue, Harlow reflects on seeing her character come to life, getting to know herself this year, plans for the future and her biggest lessons so far.
