The fashion and modelling industry has been embracing different definitions of beauty over the last couple of years and Chantelle Brown-Young is a testament to that. One of the contestants in the latest instalment of America's Next Top Model, she suffers from a rare condition known as vitiligo that causes depigmentation of parts of the skin. Michael Jackson was diagnosed with this condition, hence his gradual albeit dramatic skin color change.

Chantelle Brown-Young embraces her condition, saying, "A lot of people have a story and background, but mine is painted on my body." Although teased and tormented as a child, 19-year-old Chantelle Brown-Young shows the world what it means to be bold and beautiful in a unique way.
