A model with Down’s Syndrome has become the first to pose for Gucci Beauty.

Speaking to the Daily Mail in the U.K, Goldstein said she was “really proud of the photoshoot”. Goldstein’s portrait has been liked over 800,000 times on Gucci’s Instagram page.

Goldstein studies performing arts and has already starred in a number of high-profile campaigns for brands like Superdrug, Nike and Vodafone.
