So we are always hearing and reading crap about fatties complaining that models are soooooo skinny that they make them feel bad and insecure. They bash on the industry just because apparentley they say only one ideal is beautiful. However, I can prove that it is not true. Skinny, beautiful and sometimes even Photoshopped models make me feel better about myself. Why? Not just because I have thinspos to look up to, but also because I can actually relate to them. Sure, I may not be 6" like Karlie or have super skinny thighs like Anabela, and I sure am jealous of that! However, we are always discussing here about how we love love LOVE unconventional beauties as well as classic beauties. We love black, white and asian models. We love blonde, brunette and ginger models. We see a good thing in every girl (except for Upton, but that's not the point). So I can say: hey, this girl might not be perfect, but she's still beautiful! And then I realise that I can be beautiful without being flawless too. I used to be very insecure about my looks before. But now that I know about models and the industry, I accept myself much more. I used to hate my button nose. It was so flat and small! But then I saw it looks a lot like Gemma Ward's. I also hated my elfish ears that stuck out, but then I realised that they are similar to Frida Gustavsson's. I especially hated my eyes. They were small and almond-shaped and weird. You see, I'm of Chinese heritage, but I also have a bit of European blood. My eyes are not like a regular Asian nor European person. It's like, a mixture of both. It starts with a crease and then it disappears. No one else has eyes like me and I used to be (and sometimes I am again too) very insecure about them. However, I realised that my eyes set me apart from other Asians, and now I think they are exotic and unique rather than weird. And they do resemble Chanel Iman's a bit. I learned to think... "Does Codie Young hate her alien features?", "Does Lara Stone hate her tooth gap?", "Does Lindsey Wixson hate he lips?". Truth is, they may. But these girls have taken advantage of those imperfections and look at them now! Adored by many and considered some of the most beautiful in the world (well, except for Wixson maybe). So I say... The fashion industry shouldn't be accused of making women insecure, as it celebrates flaws and quirks like no other industry. So love yourself gurls, it is cheesy and cliché and hard, but not even our favorite thinspos are total perfection.
