Beauty is a relative concept. At all times, there were standards of female beauty, and in every period women and girls tried to follow them. And all this was in order to please men, because, it is they who set these very "standards".

Women do so much to get men’s attention: they lose weight, stretch their necks, tighten their waists, tie their feet in small shoes, paint, build up the breasts, increase the ass, do manicures, wear strange and uncomfortable clothes and many, many other unnecessary things.

Is there any single criterion which determines whether a person is beautiful or not? Fortunately, there is no such criterion, let alone a single one. Who are we to judge a person against false standards imposed on us by society, beginning with physique and growth, ending with the style of clothing?

These models completely change the modern concept of beauty. They are adorable in their uniqueness. They are not like everyone else. And this is what we like most in people: when they are beautiful while remaining themselves.
