10+ Fashion Models With Unique Features Who Set Their Own Standards For Beauty

Everyone is beautiful in their own way.

The fashion industry is strict when it comes to the standard they have. You may have heard of some of the most ridiculous things models do in order to stay in shape. But time has changed and the fashion industry has been constantly being reminded to be inclusive.

Today, we are in love with seeing so many different kinds of people be part of the industry. From people with albinism, and plus-size models, to those who embrace their traditions that could mean unconventional appearance, these models are breaking the standards with their presence.

Diandra Forrest

Diandra was signed to be a model at the age of 18 and became the first albino to work with a major modeling company. She found herself suscepted to many comments about her appearance, but has learned to build her confidence and love herself the way she is.

She was reclaiming her people’s tradition and got the tattoo at 14, which was an ancient tradition that typically girls aged between 12 to 14 get from their mother as a rite of passage. She now lives in Alaska and is an activist that works to protect the land of Arctic against oil production in the area.

Sara Grace Wallerstedt

Sara is an American model who’s often been dubbed as the most beautiful girl and possesses an “ethereal” appearance.
