Looking at model Madeline Stuart, you probably notice her long mane of red hair, her freckles, and her gorgeous blue eyes. But what you may or may not see right away is that she has Down syndrome. After overcoming her lifelong weight-loss struggle, Maddy decided to pursue a career that highlights her beautiful new body, but at the same time she’s bringing awareness to the Down syndrome community. “Modeling will help change society’s view of people with Down Syndrome, [and]exposure will help to create acceptance in life," she wrote on her Facebook page.

初 見瑪德琳 斯圖爾特時,你可能會注意到她長長的紅髮、雀斑以及那雙美麗的藍色眼眸,但她是唐氏症患者的那一面則不容易一眼看出。在克服困擾許久的體重問題後,瑪德琳 決定以全新面貌追求夢寐以求的職業-模特兒。在追尋理想的同時,她也為唐氏症患者發聲,在自己的臉書動態中寫道:「體態會改變社會對唐氏症患者的看法,而 面對大眾更為生活創造正面價值。」

Recently the 18-year-old from Australia signed a contract with the Living Dead clothing brand, proving that models (just like all women) are quite diverse. Women love to fantasize about what they’d look like in magazine ads and campaigns — and seeing someone who looks real do this reminds us that dreams can come true.

最近這位年僅18歲的澳洲女孩和品牌Living Dead clothing 簽下合約,證明模特兒當然可以有多種面貌,就像世界上有各種不同的女人一樣。而幾乎所有女人都會幻想自己是服裝雜誌或廣告裡的模特兒,看到瑪德琳的例子後,你是不是覺得這件事不再只是夢想呢?

 

Fantasize:夢想

 

Madeline joins a list of distinguished models changing the way we see beauty, including transgender catwalker Andreja Pejic and Chantelle Brown-Young, who has vitiligo. A few months ago, American Horror Story star Jamie Brewer walked down the New York Fashion Week runway, becoming the first Down syndrome model to hit the catwalk. We think Madeline could be next …

瑪德琳參加了「美麗的不同樣貌」活動,參加者包括凱渥旗下的變性人模特兒Andreja Pejic和身上有白斑的Chantelle Brown-Young 在幾個月之前,《美國恐怖故事》的明星Jamie Brewer點亮了紐約時裝週的伸展台,成為凱渥第一位唐氏症模特兒,而我們相信瑪德琳將會是下一位。

Vitiligo:白斑
