The beautiful shots of model Ellie Goldstein will feature in Vogue Italia


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

Ellie Goldstein, who is just 18, will be featured on the pages of Vogue Italia later this month as part of a special Gucci editorial.

The shots of Goldstein are featured as part of a scouting partnership between Gucci and Vogue Italia, and shows Goldstein modelling the luxury brand’s Mascara L’Obscur.

Goldstein is from Essex in the U.K, and is represented by Zebedee Management, a specialist talent agency who work with people with disabilities, alternative appearances or those who identify trans or non-binary.

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.

Her feature in Vogue Italia will be printed later this month.
