Meet Ellie Goldstein, a young woman who is going places. 

At just 18, she has blazed a trail in advertising… and now she is even modelling for Gucci.

Her photo shoot for Mascara L’Obscur from Gucci’s beauty range has been liked more than 800,000 times on social media.

And later this month, the Down’s Syndrome teenager will grace the pages of Italian Vogue.

Miss Goldstein, of Ilford, Essex, signed with Zebedee Management, an agency that only represents people with disabilities, three years ago. 

She said: ‘I really enjoyed the modelling and loved wearing the Gucci dress. I’m really proud of the photo shoot.’ 

Her mother, Yvonne, said: ‘We’re all incredible proud of Ellie and all the lovely comments she has had on Gucci’s Instagram.’

Miss Goldstein, who studies performing arts at a college in Redbridge, Essex, has already featured in a number of campaigns, including Superdrug’s 2018 Christmas advert, Nike and Vodafone.

Laura Johnson, of Zebedee, said: ‘Ellie is such a wonderful person inside and out. 

She lights up the room when she walks in and is such a professional. We really hope that all brands take note and including disabled models now becomes the norm.’
