Kgothatso Dithebe, 22, became a sensation for her striking appearance after she was spotted when she was 15-years-old.

A stunning model with a striking birthmark has decided to ditch her make-up and bare all in a bid to change the world's perception of beauty.

She always covered her difference with thick foundation and powder, as instructed by modelling agencies.

But when she was 19, she defied the modelling industry and bared her natural skin making her the first model with a birthmark in the country to walk Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

And now she claims she is being booked because of her unusual looks.


Kgothatso, a law student from Pretoria, South Africa, said: "When I was at school, I used to get bullied verbally, I was called all sorts of name – people used to say how my birthmark looked like an African map.

"I had people staring at me a lot. People think I have vitiligo.

"It affected me in a very bad way, so when I was approached by my first agency I was told to use make up and that become my confidence.
