Supermodels– despite facing immense pressure to fit into societal, patriarchal standards imposed upon the way they should look, the weight they should maintain, and the standard of beauty they should reach– are beautiful. If anything, their beauty lies in their graceful ability to fit into those unreasonable, sexist standards.
There is a lot of vanity in being a model of any kind, but that's not a bad thing. The whole point is that you are beautiful, and you're showing the world that you are beautiful. So, every good model loves a good selfie. Let's take a look at some of the best supermodel selfies of 2o19 (So Far).
