Britain’s top disabled model Kelly Knox has been known for years since she won the BBC competition Britain’s Missing Top Model in 2008. However, the 29-year-old model from North London has also been loved by a lot of people for her determination to make widespread changes in the fashion industry. Although Kelly Knox was born with a hand missing, this cannot prevent her from modelling for top fashion magazines as well as showing up on catwalks around the world.
A few months ago, the blonde beauty was booked for an editorial shoot for Marie Claire China’s April 2013 issue, where she was dressed in a Karl Lagerfeld dress for Chanel. Kelly Knox also modelled for Debenhams and Caryn Franklin of All Walks Catwalk in the High Street giant’s latest lookbook. However, the most highlight in her modelling career was her deal with P&G Beauty. The consumer giant booked her to walk in their Trends of 2013 catwalk show at the P&G Beauty VisionHouse event in Beijing.
“Modelling for P&G Beauty is my proudest modelling career moment,” Kelly Knox said. “I was so honoured to be recognised and embraced as a model by a global leading company. Surely this is a message to all brands, fashion magazines and advertisers.”
