From the days of trailblazers like Kate Dillon and Sophie Dahl onward, plus-size models have occupied a unique position within fashion. Challenging expectations on the runways and broadening the industry’s view of beauty, these women do much more than sell clothes. Often enlisted to speak about body image, representation, and the politics of being in front of the camera, they inspire debate and change.
With opportunities that extend beyond sample sizes currently at an all-time high, this new generation of models is shaping the business of being beautiful—through means as diverse as TED talks, global activism, or their honest and uncensored Instagram accounts. Here, five standout stars who are at the forefront of a movement.
Nail art is notorious for being difficult to do at home. Despite having all the right tools and colors, even with the steadiest hand our take at the latest trends often ends up looking less like a masterpiece and more like a middle school art project.
Luckily, recently nail art has taken a turn to more subdued designs that can be DIYed at home even if you aren’t a nail art wizard. Case in point: manicurist Alicia Torello’s, colorful and graphic designs, which she shares on her Instagram, @aliciatnails.
The fight to cover up roots is just that — a fight. It takes hours at the salon to get your desired color, not to mention it costs a lot of money and it fades waytoo quickly. But this cover-up kit will completely change the way you deal with graying roots. For starters it costs under 35 bucks and takes no time at all.
Supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is in the business of looking good—and diet is at least half the battle. She recently revealed her secret to eating well: She's been following the dietary guidelines of the London-based naturopathic doctor Nigma Talib, who just released a new book, Younger Skin Starts in the Gut.
