ABC News

Wet Seal was looking for a model with a beautiful face and smile.

They found what they're looking for, and a whole lot more, in Karrie Brown.

ABC News says the clothing company hired the 17-year-old with Down syndrome as one of the faces of their new campaign after Karrie's mom led a Facebook charge to make her daughter's modeling dream come true.

Sue Brown posted pictures of Karrie modeling Wet Seal clothes on a Facebook page, and the company promised that if the page reached 10,000 likes, they'd hire her as a model.

The page reached the goal in two days.

Wet Seal flew Karrie to Los Angeles in August for a fashion shoot which will be released in the next few weeks.
