The world is now a lot more accepting of alternative beauties, featuring them on mainstream mediums, eschewing the classic (read: boring) standard of beauty.
I am particularly in love with these pictures of disabled models – proofs that disabilities do not limit one’s attractiveness.
Viktoria Modesta is a British model and singer. A doctor’s negligence at her birth led to a life-long problem with her left leg. In 2007, she had a voluntary below-the-knee leg amputation to improve her mobility and safeguard her future health. Her appearance has since become known for challenging the modern perception of beauty.
Model Debbie van der Putten lost her arm at 19 in a bus crash, but she is trail-blazing through the modelling world in spite of that.
Van der Putten is the star of Dutch department store, de Bijenkorf’s latest campaign.
Kelly Knox was crowned the winner of “Britain’s Missing Top Model”, a show was about selecting the UK’s best disabled model. Following the win, she earned herself a modeling contract with an exclusive agency and a fashion shoot with Marie-Claire.
Knox was born without a left forearm.
