Beauty they say lies in the eyes of the beholder, this saying has never being truer than in the case of these out of the ordinary models. Some did not set out to be models but have gone on to fulfill destiny in a field that that is very discriminatory of looks.

Here is just 3 of them to inspire you. No matter what you are, who you are you can still be what you want to be in your own unique way.

Jillian Mercado is a fashion reporter. She also has muscular dystrophy and uses a wheelchair. While working at a fashion magazine, she met Nicola Formichetti, the artistic director for the Diesel fashion house. A few months later, she saw a casting call from Diesel–they were looking for young, hip models that represented a variety of cultural backgrounds. For a bit of fun, she applied.

Soon after, she got an email that said, "Hey can you send us more pictures? We are kind of interested in having you in the campaign.” Along with 22 others, Mercado was chosen to be the face of Diesel in their next campaign.

When photographers took photos of Mercado she didn't conceal her wheelchair, but she was worried about how people would respond when the photos were released on Instagram. To her delight, the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

Moffy is not like every other female supermodel. Sure, she is young, beautiful, talented and has the right body measurements, but there's also something that sets her apart from all the other professional models. Moffy is cross-eyed.

Most girls are denied a career in the modeling industry because of their physical “flaws," but in young Moffy's case, her strabismus, a condition in which the eyes are not properly aligned with each other, was exactly what helped her succeed in the fashion world.


Before her now-famous photo shoot for POP Magazine, Moffy had never been photographed for a fashion mag, but her pure, unconventional beauty seduced everyone, even the people at Storm, the model agency that discovered Kate Moss–they recently signed Moffy.

The Woman Who Holds The Record For Tallest Model at 6'8” Tall


Amazon Eve, 34, is the world's tallest model. Eve, also known as Erika Ervin, totally dwarfs the majority of men and women she encounters as she stands at a towering 6' 8".

Erika began modeling 4 years ago when she appeared on the Zoo Weekly magazine front cover. She has also worked as a political lobbyist, paralegal, personal trainer. Additionally, she makes money by challenging men to wrestle her for a $400 fee.

As a child Eve was always tall. By the age of 14 and already at 5' 9", she towered over her classmates and teachers. Over the next five years, Eve suffered terrible growing pains as she shot up 11 inches, and by 19 stood at her current height of 6' 8". She eventually took up acting classes to boost her confidence.

She dreamed of being a Hollywood star, but the main parts she was called for were for roles as aliens or monsters. In 2013, Eve landed a role as Shelley Godfrey in the hit T.V series Hemlock Grove.
