Toddler Lily Beddall has one of the cutest grins you’ll ever see.

And she’s got a pretty big reason to smile nowadays since the adorable two-year-old recently snagged a national modeling contract with one of the biggest retailers of children’s clothing in the UK – Matalan.

Lily, who has Down syndrome, is helping revolutionize the ways we perceive beauty and opening people’s eyes to the importance of diversity representation in the media.

Her family is beyond thrilled by her recent accomplishment. They hope her high visibility in fashion campaigns helps break down the barriers that, in the past, have made invisible individuals with disabilities.

American retailer Target has also taken a more diverse approach with disabled children in their ad campaigns, as well as OshKosh B’Gosh.

Lily’s parents, Eddie and Vickie Beddall, took her on a recent trip to Matalan’s to see herself in her ads at their neighborhood shop.

As her dad held her up on his shoulders to see her over-sized photo up close, she flashed that gorgeous smile of hers that is sure to win the hearts of everyone everywhere.

You go, girl! Keep shining like the bright star you are!
