Cat Eye Syndrome: A Girl With A Face Deformed By A Rare Disease Is A Successful Model

Date May 27, 2019

Accepting oneself is a daunting task for some people. Fixation on own flaws in appearance and negative mindset can seriously affect life. But fortunately, there are other options.

29-year-old American Caitin Stickels was born with a condition called cat eye syndrome (or Schmid–Fraccaro syndrome), and besides the eyes, it entails abnormalities in other parts of the body, too. The girl's face is partly deformed.

At a conscious age, Caitin managed to turn her unique appearance to her own advantage by trying herself in modeling.

In her well-thought of images, she found a balance between the form and the message she wanted to convey to viewers.

She was lucky to have a photo shoot with famous photographer Nick Knight, who saw her work on Instagram and offered collaboration. He found the right angle, lighting, and entourage for V Magazine.

The result was a delightful collection of images. As Caitin noted:

This collaboration has been the most beautiful whirlwind of my life.

Having declared herself at such a high level, the model continues to conquer the world of fashion, where they know the value of beauty only too well.

Even if it seems to you that you are not very lucky with your appearance, there are millions of people who will find you the most beautiful person in the world. Do you agree?
