Daisy-May Demetre gets her hair done a day before the show. She told Reuters Television she loves putting pretty clothes on and posing for the camera.

Daisy-May Demetre is seen a day before the Lulu et Gigi show. "When she was born, we thought it was going to be the end of the world. How people were going to look at her and perceive her, like boyfriends, and husbands. Now I see that she was a gift. Her disability is an actual gift and she wears that gift with pride. It does not hold her back in any way," he said.

Lulu et Gigi founder Eni Hegedus-Buiron said she had no second thoughts about hiring an amputee to model her luxury children's clothing, which can cost as much as $2,600 for a "Princess and the Pea Gown." "We bring her among the other girls. We have a curvy teen model. We have models with Down syndrome. Inclusion is for all different children," she said.
