So, I’m continuously finding myself wishing I looked more like this:
Specifically, white, skinny and therefore ‘pretty’.
It sucks. I love what I look like, I love my mixed-nationality mongrel shade of tan! It’s just the complete bombardment of skinny white girls in fashion advertisements and shoots that make me feel inadequate.
I reckon more companies need to embrace other nationalities in their everyday fashion shoots, not just the token ‘oh look we have a black woman’ fashion shoots. It’s not fooling anybody, people. We know that when it comes down to it, you’ll always fall back to skinny white girls, leaving the rest of us wishing we could be that too.
