Valentina Guerrero, an exceptional model

It’s pretty incredible that at just one-years-old, Valentina Guerrero is an international model. It’s even more incredible that this particular child model with a radiant smile also has Down’s Syndrome.

Born in Miami to Ecuadorean parents, Valentina drew media attention when Spanish designer Dolores Cortés not only put her on the cover of her catalog, but also used her as a principal model in her DC Kids 2013 campaign. This was an unprecedented move in the fashion world.

Bravo and Thank You!!!  Kudos to Dolores Cortes on shattering the glass ceiling on every front. What a beautiful, pure and enlightening "role model" for all those who need to understand Beauty is so much more than looks.  We need more of this.  Sonia from Brooklyn NY
