Cultures on this earth have a lot of diversity, not only in terms of beauty but also, in terms of looks. This diversity of cultures is the only thing that makes a person special or beautiful in society. Although it was a taboo in the past society to be unique now, the progressing world is accepting all these types of uniqueness as a beauty. Many women in the world understand the progressing thinking of society and come in front of the public to show their unique beauty. These models have to face many negative arguments and conventional thinking of people but new positivity from the developing world also. I would like to call them “Role Models” because they did believe in themselves and make a new world in the industry of beauty.
Today I’ll share a list of five unconventional beauties of the world who made their way in the storm of beauty with the help of their uniqueness on social media or on other media.
Tyra Banks -the host of America’s Next Top Model- discovered Winnie Harlow on Instagram for “America Next Top Model”. After appearing in “America’s Next Top Model”, she gained immense fame and popularity in public and signed as a brand face for Desigual. Although she is suffering from vitiligo (long term condition in the skin where pale white patches appear on the skin due to lack of melanin), but she never gives importance to the problems in her way to success due to her skin.
After appearing first time in “America’s Next Top Model”, she continues her services for several fashion shows and even became one of the prominent campaigners for Diesel and Swarovski. She was also invited to wave the chequered flag, signifying the end of Formula One race in 2018 at Canadian Grand Prix. Winnie Harlow is a role model for thousands of men and women around the world who are suffering from skin issues and has low self-esteem to express their abilities.
Melanin Goddess or Khoudia Diop is a Senegalese model who was born on December 1996.
