Tyra Banks just started a new campaign that focuses on extending the definitions of beauty. Because unlike what many media trends, Hollywood, pro-plastic surgery ideologies, Photoshop and othersÂ are intending to tell us on permanent or occasional basisÂ , beautyÂ DOES come in various forms, shapes, colors and sizes, it has infinite variations and infinite interpretations. Beauty is not a recipe that requires precise quantities of specific ingredients and it is not a pre-established, standardized formula that we all have to follow.
As Tyra says it,Â beautyÂ is represented by one’s uniqueness and it is not something you can put inside a box. Let’s hear Tyra’s “PRO beauty diversity” message, straight from the source:
Women of every age, race, religion, and ethnicity have struggled in their lives with the narrow concept of beauty. The reason I created America’s Next Top Model was to show the world that girls of all kinds can be beautiful. Every girl’s unique look is important to me – from the thin, plus-sized, short, very tall, ebony to porcelain skinned, the quirky, clumsy, shy, outgoing and all in between.
It’s not easy though because many people still put beauty into a confining, narrow box. So now, I’m asking women around the world to make a pledge to expand their definition of beauty. To put all types of beauty into the spotlight.Â Think outside of the box. It’s time for you to celebrate and help redefine beauty. Let’s rejoice and embrace “non-traditional beauty”.Â Â Pledge that you will look in the mirror and find the unique beauty in you. I also ask that you spread love and positive beauty messages to others. Tell your friend, family member or even a stranger that their atypical features are flawless.
