‘I am tired of society defining beauty for us’
Cara Delevingne has decided to rebel against mainstream standards of beauty, and the effort, it has to be said, is very admirable.
The model and actress has traded in her once long hair for a bald head and at the recent Met Gala, she painted her head in a gorgeous silver colour and design, and wore an embellished Chanel trouser suit.
Across two recent Instagram posts, she explains how she is now rallying against society’s ‘typical’ beauty standards, the first of which shows her at the Gala.
She captions the post: “The more we embrace who we are as people and rely less on our physical attributes, the more empowered we become. Beauty shouldn't be so easily defined. It is limitless.”
In another post, she shared a picture of her that has been shared around the media of her dressed down sporting the bald head. She captioned this post: “Its exhausting to be told what beauty should look like. I am tired of society defining beauty for us. Strip away the clothes, Wipe Off the make up, cut off the hair. Remove all the material possessions. Who are we? How are we defining beauty? What do we see as beautiful?”
