The 24-year-old runway slayer was tapped to strut her stuff in LaQuan Smith's spring/summer '19 RTW NYFW show held inside Pier 59. She closed out the show with the super bomb black designer, hitting the runway and then snapping a selfie with him.

Yeezy model Shannade Clermont - who was recently arrested on federal charges after allegedly prostituting & stealing a dead man's credit card - and her twin sister Shannon Clermont came out to show support. Right after she was arrested in NYC, she bonded out. Unbothered we see.

Back to Winnie...

I had a break down before i walked into the most nerve wrecking casting of my life. I asked my driver to go around the block twice before i could walk into the @VictoriasSecret offices so i could re coup, and remember (while my trainer @bodybymato reminded me on the phone through sobs - thank you lol) how hard I’ve been working! I went in and made new friends and saw old friends and it already felt like home! We patiently waited while @ed_razek @johndavidpfeiffer @monica.mitro @10magazine carefully took time to get to know each girl. When it was finally my time, within my nervous storm of anticipation i changed into a black Victoria Secret set and stepped out!!!! I spoke to them about Jamaica, @nick_knight , my abs, and how i was beyond honoured to be given the opportunity to try out.. then I walked for my life!!!! I can’t believe this!! Thank you for giving me all the energy and kindness in that room! Thank you for allowing me to walk for VICTORIA’S SECRET! Thank you to my agencies @firstaccessent @womenmanagementnyc @women_paris @thesquadmanagement my pr @remibrb my agent @mannyuk and mama bears #sarahstennett & @thelilmisse for having my back supporting and believing in me! I love you guys you’re FAMILY!! Thank you mommy for praying with me everyday for the past 3 days. And thank you so much to my fans who have been pushing me forward to this point in my career. I’m so blessed thank you Lord!! IM WALKING THE VICTORIA’S SECRET SHOW! Thank you Vogue for the exclusive interview

Congrats Winnie! We can't wait to see her hit the runway.

Winnie isn't the only new black model gearing up to lit up VS's runway. Model Duckie Thot - who literally maes us gasp everytime we see her - is also going to rock it. Watch her reaction when she found out below:



We wonder how her rumored boo Kofi Siriboe congratulated her.  Mmhmm.  Congrats Duckie!
