Jillian Mercado, a model with muscular dystrophy, has been commissioned as one of the models for Beyonce’s ‘Formation’ merchandise line. Mercado, who was diagnosed with spastic muscular dystrophy when she was young, was signed to IMG models after landing the 2014 Diesel campaign. Now, she’s one of the faces for the merchandise of perhaps the biggest pop star in the world. The 28-year-old blogger announced the news on Instagram last week. “OK LADIES now let’s get in FORMATION!,” she wrote. “So BEYond excited to finally announce that I’m on the official @beyonce website!!! A special shout out to Queen Bee herself and the amazing team behind it.”
