Lila Grace Moss, Kate Moss's daughter, made a strong statement on the runway as she put an end to the Milan Fashion Week in a way no one could ever imagine. The 19- year old girl walked the runway at Fendi and Versace's combined show, titled 'Fendace,' leaving her fans stunned. The young model, who has type 1 diabetes, wore a cropped jacket and a baroque-pattered bodysuit as she confidently showed her legs, along with an insulin pump on her thigh below her hip.
She opened up to the media a while before that she has Type 1 diabetes, which necessitates the use of insulin injections or pumps to control blood sugar levels. However, she chose not to cover it up beneath all the glitz and shine, which has inspired several young adults and even children.
The model also took to Instagram to post a carousel of her stunning photos from the runway. She also shared a few clips of her walk and some BTS footage from the show, for her fans.
Netizens have flooded the platform, appreciating the young model for breaking social stigma around insulin pumps.
Have a look at a few reactions:

Wow, as an insulin pump user, to see #lilamoss wear one proudly on the runway is really special, especially for young T1 diabetics who are embarrassed by a device that literally keeps us alive.— 🦋Adam Driver is my God🇦🇺🐈 (@queenoferebor12) September 30, 2021
