Meet Melanie Gaydos, 28-Year-Old Model With A Rare Genetic Disorder Who Broke All Fashion Stereotypes

We all know that the fashion industry is one of the most cutthroat in the world. If you aren’t seen as physically perfect, you are seen to have no place, and thus many are left out of the world of fashion modelling. But one brave woman is out to change all that, and her name is Melanie Gaydos.

Melanie was born with ectodermal dysplasia, a rare genetic condition that prevents teeth, nails, pores, cartilage and bones from developing. Despite being stigmatised all her life, Melanie decided she wanted to make a difference- and now at the age of 28, she has become a model that has shattered all the rules the fashion industry has done.

Take a look at some of the incredible photos that she has starred in and leave a comment on which is the most awe-inspiring.

    • You;re a freak of nature! How DARE you call her that? I bet you’re working at McDonalds or somewhere just mad you aren’t talented or beautiful enough to be a model!

    • Melanie, you’re a cruel person. Something must be bad wrong with you to make you hate yourself so much that you have to put another person down so that you feel better about yourself.

  1. all this “proves” is what we already knew: if you’re skinny and tall, you can be a model. if you’re not, good luck. i don’t see any “fashion stereotypes” being shattered here at all. if anything, they’re being reinforced.
