pizap.com14585227862811Beyonce has launched her new “Formation” line, and model Jillian Mercado, who has muscular dystrophy, has been selected as the face of the new line.

“Ok ladies now let’s get in formation” was how model Jillian Mercado began her post on Instagram as she proudly announced that she is the new face of Beyonce’s new clothing online store.

Mercado, who signed with IMG Models in 2015, was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy when she was little girl. She began to spark media interest after launching her website Manufactured 1987.

“When I was younger, I was looking for that role model,” she told Vogue in an interview last year. “I had people who I admired, but there was no one [with a disability] who I could look to … I was shocked that I didn’t see anyone in the industry who was like me.”

This is not her first modeling gig as she has also modeled for Diesel and Nordstrom.

I think this is a beautiful, powerful statement that beauty comes in all different shapes, colors, and sizes.
