An 18-year-old Jewish model with Down syndrome

Ellie Goldstein, an 18-year-old model with Down syndrome, recently fulfilled a dream by starring in a Gucci Beauty campaign, and has broken social media records by receiving over 800,000 likes on her post on the official Gucci Instagram page. If that's not enough, the teenager will appear on the pages of the Italian Vogue later this month.

Raised in Ilford, a small town in Essex, UK, Goldstein started modeling in 2017 after joining the Zebedee Management modeling agency, which focuses on providing services for models with disabilities, "supplying diverse models and offering sensitive representation," according to their website.
