Ariel Winter: ‘There’s a confidence you find when you finally feel right in your body’

January 27, 2016 in Beauty & Body Image by Versus

On how her breast reduction surgery changed her life:

Being a 5-ft.-tall girl and having extremely large breasts is really ostracizing and excruciatingly painful. It was an instant weight lifted off my chest – both literally and figuratively. There’s a confidence you find when you finally feel right in your body.

On how she did not have big breasts for a long time until she hit 15:

And then overnight I did. But then they kept growing and growing and growing and it didn’t seem like they were going to stop.“I was 15 years old with [size] F. It’s like, “How do you navigate that?” It started to hurt so bad that I couldn’t take the pain.

… says 18 year-old Ariel.

Zendaya: “Growing up, I wasn’t very confident with my curls”

On not being confident because of her hair:

Growing up, I wasn’t very confident with my curls. I didn’t like my hair because it wasn’t like the hair that girls around me had. And nobody really knew what to do with my hair. My mom is white and my dad is black – they have very different hair types. So we learned how to manage my hair together and I also watched YouTube videos to find easy styles to do.

On her style:

When I am on the red carpet, I am not afraid to have fun with my look. A lot of the styles I wear are inspired by Cher, Joan Jett, Grace Jones and Diana Ross. When people see me, I want them to understand the character that I am that night. I want them to have a moment.

On experimenting and becoming confident:

When I was younger, I was afraid to experiment with my look because I was worried about what people thought. But as I’ve gotten older and become more confident in myself, I just don’t care. I like who I am and I hope that I can help a lot of otter young women get there. I think that a big part of that is showing that you can dress and wear your hair however you want.

… says 19 year-old Zendaya.

Demi Lovato: “Once I started feeling better about myself, I felt better about showing more skin”

On how more confidence equals showing more skin:

I’ll have people who are like ‘Stop talking about it,’ but this summer I started wearing sexier stuff, and I got some hate for that, like, ‘You’ve changed.’ It’s like, ‘What’s wrong with being confident enough to wear this?’

I’ve never felt as confident in my skin as I do today. A year ago, on tour, almost every inch of my body was covered by clothing, and it was because I was hiding behind so many layers. Once I started feeling better about myself, I felt better about showing more skin. I have insecurities about my arms, so to wear a tank top on stage is extremely liberating for me, and uncomfortable sometimes. It’s also a statement, like, ‘Hey, watch out. You’re no longer getting the insecure Demi that you’ve been getting for the past couple of years. I mean business now.’

… says Demi.

Bryce Dallas on Having to Purchase Her Award Dresses: ‘Size six dresses aren’t available from designers’

On not fitting in the dresses the designers provide and buying her size 6 Golden Globe dress (blue one, price $4,800) from a store:

I like having lots of options for a size six, as opposed to maybe one option, so I always go to department stores for this kind of stuff.

On her Critics’ Choice Arards dress (black):

I got it from a store called Forward by Elyse Walker. I’ve alluded to this a little bit before, but when you’re not a sample size or if you don’t have a direct relationship with a designer or if you don’t have a lot of notice – those size six dresses aren’t available. What I’ve found is, if something is last minute, I go to Neimans or I get something online… I’m really taped and I’m touching my breasts a lot, making sure that the tape is still sticking. I hope it’s not awkward for anyone.

… says 34 year-old Bryce.
