Jamie Brewer, of American Horror Story fame, is making headlines as the first model with Down syndrome to walk at New York Fashion Week. The actress and activist took a turn strutting on the runway for designer Carrie Hammer in her “Role Models Not Runway Models” show, which featured a variety of powerful women. Jamie’s been tweeting photos of herself backstage, looking glam and excited. “Young girls and even young women… [see me] and say ‘Hey, if she can do it so can I,'” she told Today Style. “It’s a true inspiration being a role model for any young women to [encourage them] in being who they are and showing who they are.” Jamie looked incredible and is a real inspiration. Yas, girl!
