Supernatural beauty: models who turn features of their looks into their main strength
For many years, the Victoria's Secret brand was synonymous with luxury fashion and the ideal of feminine beauty. However, in recent years it began to be criticized. First of all, for its limited idea of aesthetics. Models with almost the same parameters always defiled the catwalk, not women with different types of figures.
Secondly, the brand ignored showing different cultures and ethnic groups for a long time. Only in recent years has it started to make changes. Purely to clean up the reputation a bit.
While society and activists are fighting for brands to expand the idea of women's multi-faceted charm, game-changing girls are emerging in the fashion world. Using their example, they show that unique looks are cool, not something to be embarrassed about. Read more about them in the article by OBOZREVATEL.
This Canadian model is better known under the creative pseudonym Winnie Harlow. At the age of 4, she was diagnosed with vitiligo (discoloration of certain areas of the skin due to the loss of pigment in them). And given the fact that Chantelle is dark-skinned, the appearance of blond spots is especially noticeable. Once the girl was complex because of this feature, and in adulthood she made it her calling card. Now she has become an internationally famous model.
