For many centuries, the ideals of female and male beauty have changed, and certain types of figures, face shapes, eye color, and hair color were considered the standard of beauty. But at the same time, symmetry was always appreciated, even the texture of the skin and the tone of the skin, as well as the absence of any defects. In the present time, we live in an interesting time - when it seems that the ideals of beauty have ceased to exist at all.
We believe that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Today we want to show you people who, presumably, could not work in the modeling industry 20 years ago, but now they make millions of people more confident in their unusual appearance.
1. Maeva Gianni Marshall.
The French model had problems with their health - she did not have a stroke and kidney disease. Then she was forced to take drugs that made her skin hypersensitive to the sun. As a result, freckles became so bright that some people did not believe that they were real. Moreover, this "deficiency" brought her fame and paved her way to the main shows of the world.
2. Scarlett Costello.
She stopped pinching her hair between her eyebrows and shaved her armpits at the age of 15. Evil critics called her a pretentious feminist, but that did not prevent her from becoming a successful model.
3. Zack Miko.
The fashion industry has begun to adopt women of larger sizes comparatively recently, but male models of larger sizes are still very small. Zak Miko takes part in photoshoots for fashion magazines and participates in fashion shows, and also receives messages on his Instagram account not only from fans but also from men who are inspired by his example.
4. Anna Rubin.
Anna Rubin from Denmark. The proportions of her body, the drawings of her face, the thick eyebrows give her a slight male appearance. At the time, Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell were women with such an appearance that it was unlikely they would have succeeded in the modeling business, but now the androgyny is back in trend.
5. Chelsea Werner.
Chelsea Werner was born with Down syndrome. She could not walk, until she was 2 years old, and doctors said that she has a low muscle tone and that this problem will stay with her for the rest of her life. Ignoring this, her parents recorded her in a gymnastics class. He trained as well as ordinary athletes, spending 16 hours a week in the gym, and was able to become a four-time champion of the United States in gymnastics among people with limited mental abilities.
6. Amy Mullins.
Amy Mullins was born without a small bone and at the age of one year underwent amputation of both legs below the knee. When she went to college, she competed equally with athletes and later became the champion of the Paralympic Games.
7. Jack Aires.
Jack had a childhood disability - on his right leg lived an iron scab, because of which he was constantly sick and very slow-growing. While his classmates met girls, played football, and made plans for the future, Jack struggled with severe depression, feeling that he would be disabled for the rest of his life. Therefore, he decided to amputate his leg at the age of 16 years. After the operation, Jack's life became better - he decided to become a firefighter, and for this, he needed to put his body in shape. He began to seriously engage in fitness, he noticed, and as a result, Jack became a model.
