This is so heartwarming!
An 18-year-old model from Australia named Madeline Stuart will walk at New York Fashion Week — big deal, right? Tons of models strut their stuff at the biggest fashion weeks of the year.
Oh yeah, well Stuart is noteworthy beyond other models because she's doing this with Down syndrome, and still dominating the catwalk. Gurl, werk!!!
Stuart, who's been in high demand as a model across the world this year, recently had a shoot with photographer Erica A. Nichols to show off her looks — ch-ch-check it out (above) and see the gorgeous Stuart, worked on by hair stylists Myo Lai and Yvette Ray, make-up artists Jessica Chu and Mandy Phan, and stylists Daniel Flores and Edith Mendoza.
Stuart looks AH-mazing!!
Madeline's mom, Rosanne, spoke to reporters about the world being ready for her daughter to walk in NYFW:
