- This is one of the most unique models you will ever see
- She suffers from ectodermal dysplasia

Melanie Gaydos is a 28-year-old model, but she is not your normal-type of girl, like you would expect to see on the runway or at fashion shoots. This is due to the fact that Gaydos suffers from a rare genetic, which prevents cartilages, nails, teeth and some bones from developing adequately.
This condition gives her the exotic, quizzical look that has enables her to conquer the fashion world.
