Model With Down’s Syndrome Breaks Instagram Records For Gucci

A model with Down’s syndrome has starred in the latest campaign from fashion brand Gucci.

18-year-old Ellie Goldstein from the UK models Gucci Mascara L’Obscur in the shoot.

“I designed L’Obscur mascara for an authentic person who uses makeup to tell their story of freedom, in their way,” Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele said.

“We called it L’Obscur because this word balances charm and mystery,” he added.

The photo on Instagram now has over 810,000 likes which, according to Goldstein’s modelling agency, is the most likes ever for Gucci.

Released by Gucci last month, the campaign has now been picked up by the Italian edition of Vogue.

“I love this. Thank you for this amazing opportunity and a fabulous day shooting,” Goldstein said.
