Rihanna is the darling of the entertainment world for many reasons; her acting, her music and the level of inclusivity she’s brought to the beauty industry.
When her beauty brand (Fenty beauty) launched 2 years ago, it had one of the widest range of shades in foundations and concealers the industry had ever seen. Then the fashion show for her lingerie brand (Savage X Fenty) featured women with all different types of bodies walking the ramp. Now, as Rihanna launches her fashion label (Fenty), she’s making a statement again. In a photo for the collection, you can clearly see the model’s facial scars! The close up photo hasn’t been photoshopped at all. And these kind of pics usually are! I love how Rihanna celebrates all kinds of beauty and not just what society deems “beautiful”.
The model, Awen Mayen Chuol, told Dazed and Confused in an interview: “People tell me I look like a jaguar or that I’m ‘exotic’. Sometimes I just want to shout at everyone: ‘Look at me, I’m not just a scar, I’m a human.’ But I get it, it’s a curiosity. I know I’m different, I know my facial features are different, but to me that’s beauty.”
That gets a big HOT!
