I was given the opportunity to narrate @Nowness’ Define Beauty: Nipples film. ‘Nipples’ explores nipples of different sizes, colours, shapes and genders in different settings. Why is there a double standard between the nipple of a man and a woman’s nipple? Who gets to decide whether an image is sexual or art? Full video on the Nowness website - Link In Bio #NipplePolitics#DefineBeauty A big thanks to everyone who made this possible, it is people like yourselves who are constantly pushing boundaries and getting the message out there, you should all be very proud.

Big thank to @i_d for giving a platform to show the film and @savechildrenuk for making this trip happen. Last but not least @felix_cooper the trip wouldn't have been the same without you.
Where do I even begin. Speechless, overwhelmed and grateful. Never in a million years did I think that one day I'd be on the cover of @britishvogue even more so one that marks such a monumental change and a new beginning. Thank you @edward_enninful I'm so very proud of you, you deserve this. Thank you for choosing me to be you're first cover girl. Thank you to #stevenmiesel for the most magical shoot I've ever been on. Mother @patmcgrathreal and @guidopalau for the constant support over the two day shoot and for making me feel like one in a million. To everyone who made this possible, thank you. #newvogue

CLARIFYING THAT THIS IS NOT MY STORY - Trigger warning. I am joining @cameronrussell in sharing anonymous stories from people who have experienced sexual harassment in the fashion industry because #MyJobShouldNotIncludeAbuse. I stand in solidarity with the hundreds of brave voices breaking the silence.
A couple of months ago I visited Uganda with @savechildrenUK to meet some of the one million refugees who have fled conflict and hunger in South Sudan. Over half of these refugees are #childrefugees and many are unaccompanied, having made the traumatic journey alone. I was so inspired by the strength of every single child I met, but especially these girls who have overcome hardships I can’t even imagine. I felt so honoured they shared their stories with me. Thankfully Save the Children are on the ground, helping to reunify families, delivering emergency schooling and medical help, providing psychological support and running Child Friendly Spaces. This was an unforgettable trip, one that will stay with me for the rest of my life. Watch this space for more about my unforgettable trip & in the meantime I urge you to make a donation, to help Save the Children continue this vital work (Link in bio) #savethechildren#Uganda#childrefugees
Seriously underdressed Ragamuffins at Buckingham Palace today celebrating all the work we’ve done and will continue to do with @heads_together .Happy World Mental Health Day from me and my other Mental friend @professorgreen#wmhd2017
Happy World Mental Health Day. On the 3rd of October 2014 I thought life was not worth living for, 3 years on and my life couldn’t be more different....Suffering in silence only made my secret stronger. But by opening my mouth, sharing and asking for help did I finally start to realise that I wasn’t alone. I didn’t need to feel ashamed and this was something I wasn’t going to have to go through by myself. Today, tomorrow and always I will strive to break the stigma surrounding mental health, I help make it part of the everyday conversation and advocate for it to be educated in schools and workplaces. #wmhd2017
Finally calling a close to Fashion Month. Exhausted but grateful for all the support I have been show by the countless people within the industry. From all the make-up and hairdressers, to production, casting, stylists, creatives and designers. Massive love to you all. A humongous thank you to my agencies @dnamodels@tessmanagement@vivamodel and my glorious manager Jamil Shamasdin who have kept me focused, grounded and sane...couldn’t have done any of this without you. Big up’s @rimowa for getting me and all my tings back in one piece.
