What does the word beauty mean to you? It’s probably a question that you’ve had to think about before, though these models are entirely changing our modern interpretations of the word. They’re challenging beauty norms within the fashion industry by being unapologetically themselves.
Regardless of age, race, disability, presentation, size, or any other factor, these women are still utterly gorgeous. Let’s take a look at these 11 unique and inspiring ladies.
1. Moffy Gathorne Hardy
Moffy’s condition is called strabismus, which causes her eyes to be misaligned with one another. Her eyes earned her acknowledgement after she was suggested by a friend to the editor of POP, a cult magazine. She has since been described as the new Kate Moss.
2. Diandra Forrest
Diandra is an African American woman with albinism. Albinism is a disorder that involves a lack of pigment in the hair, eyes, and skin. The model and actress is the first woman with albinism to be signed to an outstanding modelling agency.
