Sofía Jirau (24) from Puerto Rico has made history, becoming the first model with Down syndrome to pose for fashion giant, Victoria’s Secret.

Featured in the inclusive ‘Love Cloud Collection’ campaign, alongside 17 other women, the blonde bombshell couldn’t wait to share the milestone moment in her career.

Captioning the stunning back and white image from the campaign on her Instagram page, which has over 268 000 followers, Sofía gleefully wrote:

“One day I dreamed of it, I worked for it and today it’s a dream come true. I can finally tell you my big secret. I am Victoria’s Secret’s first model with Down syndrome! Thank you Victoria’s Secret for seeing me as a model who has #NoLimits and making me part of the inclusive Love Cloud Collection campaign. Inside and out, there are no limits.”


The campaign is part of a new standard, says Raúl Martinez, Head Creative Director of Victoria’s Secret.

“Love Cloud Collection is a major moment in the brand’s evolution. From the cast of incredible women that bring the collection to life, to the incredible inclusive spirit on set, this campaign is an important part of the new Victoria’s Secret standard we are creating”
