Let’s be honest: We are so used to see the same type of bodies and faces in fashion magazines, it’s very frustrating. There seems to be this one image of beauty and everything that goes slightly outside the box has to be crossed out. Beauty shouldn’t be a thing that can be defined, it should be something really individual. So I am more than happy to see that the image of beauty is having a little revolution thanks to some new faces that challenge and question the beauty standards that we are used to. Let me introduce you to these powerful and extraordinary beautiful ladies:
Chantelle Winnie is a fashion model who was discovered through the American casting show „America’s Next Topmodel“. I was introduced to her stunning beauty through Showstudio and Nick Knight’s wonderful photo shots of her. Chantelle has Vitiligo, which is a condition that causes depigmentation of parts of the skin. i-D Magazine wrote in one of their recent articles about the model: “Chantelle Winnie proves that what makes you different makes you beautiful“ and I think that they are absolutely right. You should check out the whole article here, I really enjoed reading it.
Diandra Forrest is an albino African American model from New York. She has something absolutely mesmerizing in her beauty, I could look at her photos for ages. All of them are so full of personality.
I saw Moffy for the first time on the POP Magazine Cover of the Spring/Summer 2013 issue. I found that cover fresh and interesting and was very excited to find even better photos in the editorial inside the magazine. There were a lot of discussions about her condition, Moffy is cross-eyed. This fact definitely shouldn’t stop her from having a great model career. She is beautiful and very photogenic and I am really looking forward to see her in more editorials and fashion campaigns.
