The world’s modeling community

Why Different is the New Beautiful

It’s no secret that millennials are ruling the online world and shaping its trends, be it fashion, modeling or beauty. They’re pushing these industries from a “Hollywood starlets only” dogma to a more inclusive one, granting everyone the opportunity to find their representation. That’s definitely one thing we here at modeling community push for!

If you ever felt you couldn’t fit in because of any physical feature that makes you stand out, now this same feature might just be your ticket to success in the modeling industry!

Here are some models that used what might’ve been an insecurity and made it the reason they’re special, one of a kind even!
