The fashion industry isn’t completely full of Instagram “it girl” models who all look the same. For some top names in the world of professional modeling, beauty is far more than cookie-cutter physical perfection. Models like Tess Holiday and Winnie Harlow turn their “flaws” into fortune. Scoring shots in top-name fashion magazines, these models prove that being different isn’t a bad thing. Because, in addition to straying from industry standards, these stunners promote a message of inclusivity. Are you still in doubt? Well then just peep this collection of models with physical flaws they didn’t let keep them from success.
If you think that big isn’t beautiful, Tess Holiday is here to prove you wrong. Promoting her message of body positivity and embracing beauty at every size, the size-22 stunner became the largest plus-size model ever to be signed to a mainstream modeling agency.
