Beauty has always been a weird thing. It’s supposedly in the eye of the beholder, but it’s also determined by society and marketing. It’s determined by weight, size, and a plethora of superficial and shallow criteria.
Every once in a while, someone comes along that breaks the cycle and redefines what society considers to be “beautiful”. And they become models, because how else can you prove that even though you don’t adhere to the rules of beauty, you’re still beautiful? I know, it sounds pretty ironic when I say it like that.
Anyway, the models below have redefined the rules of the modeling game and turned their “disadvantage” into something beautiful. Literally.
Chantelle has a pigmentation defect. Her unique look turns her into a very popular model.
Models are supposed to be young, right? Well, 84 years old can be young. Just look at this woman. I’d be more than happy to look that good as a 84 year old woman. It’d be kinda weird to wake up one day as a woman, sure, but you gotta take the good with the bad.
Known from American Horror Story, Jamie is the first model with Down syndrome.
