The April issue of V Magazine is special. It features an extraordinary photo shoot with model Caitin Stickels.

The Seattle-based model, photographed by Nick Knight, was born with a rare 'Cat Eye Syndrome' disorder that left her disfigured for life.

The chromosomal defect, also called Schmid–Fraccaro syndrome causes scoliosis, a cleft palette, and heart and kidney problems to name a few.

Given her unusual frame, Caitin is known for her artistic modelling assignments, pictures of which she posts on her Instagram account, which is also how the British photographer Nick spotted her.

The April issue of Health features Golden Globe star Tracee Ellis Ross on its cover.

Wearing a blue two piece outfit, the actor looks confident in her skin and body and talks about dealing with body issues while growing up.

She mentions how she was conscious about the size of her butt when she was young and how she tried to get rid of it.

'I love my butt in a way I didn't growing up,' the 44 year old actor told Health magazine.

'I really didn't like it growing up. It was so much bigger than everybody else's, and I wanted jeans to look the way they did on everybody else, and mine didn't."

It is only when she turned 30, she got comfortable with her body.

'In my 30s, I started to get comfortable with the largeness of my personality. The same thing with my butt. I tried getting really, really skinny, and I learned that no matter how thin I got, I was still gonna have a butt,' she said in the interview.
