Teddy Quinlivan is the new face of Chanel Beauty - making her the first openly transgender model to be hired by the fashion house.
The 25-year-old America model announced her history-making hiring on her Instagram account and admitted that Chanel's decision to give her the job left her weeping tears of joy.
Her post on Instagram - which included a video and image from the upcoming campaign - read: "I find I don't cry anymore when things are sad, but isn't it interesting when we shed tears in moments of triumph? This was one of those triumphant cry moments for me.
"My whole life has been a fight. From being bullied at school consistently, kids threatening to kill me and going into graphic detail how they were going to do it, my own father beating me and calling me a f****t, to receiving industry blowback after speaking publicly about being sexually assaulted on the job... This was a victory that made all of that s**t worth it."
