Meet Melanie Gaydos. This might be the first time you’re hearing her name and seeing her face, but you can rest assured that it’s going to be far from the last. 28 years old and born with a rare genetic condition called ectodermal dysplasia, Gaydos is actively and aggressively taking the modeling and fashion worlds by storm.
The stunning and fierce young woman’s condition greatly affected her development of hair, pores, nails and small bones over the course of her entire life. Understandably this lead to a hard life of self doubt as she tried to fit in as best she could. That is until she decided to throw away her wigs and dentures and other means of trying to cover herself up from the world.
Since the moment she entered the modeling industry four years ago it was clear that Gaydos was made to stare down the eyes of convention, challenge and conquer stereotypes as well as kick down doors for anyone who’s ever felt or been told they don’t have the right look or can’t be exactly what you’re meant to be.
Check out some of the shots that are earning her a reputation as not only one of the most well known and decorated models with a genetic disorder, but well on her way to becoming one of the top names in the industry, period.
