Chanel Beauty'nin Yeni Yüzü Transeksüel Model Teddy Quinlivan Oldu
Daha önce de birçok markanın kampanya yüzü olan model, Chanel Beauty ile kariyerinde büyük bir aşama kaydediyor.
💄CHANEL BEAUTY💄 -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 fagot, to receiving industry blowback after speaking publicly about being sexually assaulted on the job... This was a victory that made all of that shit worth it. I had walked 2 shows for Chanel while I was living in stealth ( stealth meaning I hadn't made my trans identity public yet) and when I came out I knew I'd stop working with some brands, I thought I'd never work with the iconic house of Chanel ever again. But here I am in Chanel Beauty Advertising. I am the first openly trans person to work for the house of Chanel, and I am deeply humbled and proud to represent my community. The world will kick you down, spit on you, and tell you you're worthless. It's your job to have the strength to stand up and push on, to keep fighting, Because if you give up then you will never experience the tears of triumph. Thank you to everyone who made this dream a reality! @nicolaskantor @shazmakeup @sebastienrichard1 @casadevallbelen

Modelin 2017 yılında cinsiyet değiştirdikten sonra Chanel, Louis Vuitton ve Gucci gibi moda evlerinin defilelerinde yürüdüğü ve Milk Makeup, Redken, Maison Margiela Fragrances gibi markalarla da iş birliği yaptığı biliniyor.
Quinlivan ayrıca Chanel ile birlikte çalışmanın sosyal anlamda da çok etkili olduğunu düşünüyor.
