Five models that are not afraid to be different!   

For a lot of years fashion had a pretty specific type that was considered “pretty”. Unfortunately that type was far from reality. Discrimination and false idea of beauty is still a huge problem for the fashion industry but we have taken huge steps to the right direction. So here are my five  favorite models!

  1. Iskra Lawrence   A stunning blonde that is not afraid to be goofy and kick the haters in the butt! Plus totally Instagram goals!
  2. Winnie Harlow   A gorgeous 21 year old that showed us beauty is everywhere. Even in a chronic skin condition!
  3. Rebekah Marine  A beautiful badass that needs to star in a sci-fi film ASAP! Can someone make it happen?
  4. Madeline Stuart   The cutest nineteen year old that puts the rest of us nineteen year olds to shame! ( Can sitting on my laptop be considered changing the world? No? Ok…)
  5. Philomena Kwao   Another stunning woman showing us that all sizes and colors are beautiful in their own unique way!

Who is the model that you look up to? Let me know in the comments below!!

    Love this list, i’m really glad you included Winnie Harlow, mainly because i have some skin discolouring too and she gives me confidence 🙂

      Thing is she could cover it! But she didn’t because it’s who she is and it’s beautiful. That’s why I love her!

        She is also a great role model. Because we are born physically different, however, it’s confidence that ultimately determines beauty (imo at least)

    I really love the job you’re doing here. It would be awesome to see other beautiful models that don’t necessarily fit the standards. 🙂
