Ive been seeing a lot of unusual faces in the modelling industry of late and wanted to touch on the sunject of unconventional beauty. Obviously there’s no cookie cutter”type” and what’s one person trash might be another ones treasure; but what about those unique few who are so far beyond the realm of convention that it just
becomes bizarre? Is it fascinating or just plain freaky?
I wanted to blog about the models and icons who will never be classed as conventionally pretty but are rising up against social conformity to show that beauty comes in many forms.
I don’t look like typical models that the people in my town are used to seeing or their fantasized version of a model—I’m not blonde or super bubbly. In a way, it kind of opens people up to different facets of the industry.

It’s very important to me in my life right now to break the taboo of “beauty”
My skin’s not a normal sight. I get comments saying that I’m a leper, I control how my skin changes, I bleach my skin, my skin’s burned. None of those are true. The world is looking at me now. I either let the haters affect me or I step my money up. When I stand back from all the hate and I check my bank account… Hahahahaha.
This girl’s appearance is more than just non-standard: a big mouth, big teeth, overhanging eyelids, and a protruding nose. She’s still stunning in her own way though.
This stunning model started out as a gawky, bushy eye-browed, somewhat boyish looking model. After landing some high profile fashion labels she went on to become widely desired by men and women.
I guess people really are branching out from those “typical” beauties. It’s quite refreshing to see more diverse looking girls in the modelling industry as opposed to the chiselled cheekbones of Giselle and alike. Nothing is more appealing
and more attractive than our quirks and differences.
The Babestation girls certainly like to flaunt their individuality too; from cool, crazy tattoos to their unique style and outfit choices. We have girls appearing on the shows from all walks of life, from a broad variety of backgrounds and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
