For hundreds of years, imperfections have been seen as reasons why we aren’t perfect. But we believe our imperfections are what make each of us unique and amazing. From grey hairs to cellulite to wrinkles, every part of a woman is beautiful!
Here are 10 celebrities who are embracing themselves and their so-called ‘imperfections’, and telling us why they’re proud of them!
“Of course I have wrinkles [and] grey hair, but I genuinely love it. This is who I am.”
Dame Helen Mirren
“I think women were just so terrified of having white or grey hair because it immediately put them into a different category and of course, you are in that age group. I’m sorry, but you are! So, why not just embrace it, go along with it and welcome it? Make it a positive thing as opposed to a negative thing.”
“I am a woman, and I am proud to be one and have these marks! Some of us won’t have any at all, some will have them just like me and others will be completely different. We all have them, mine are on the sides of my legs. I’m sure when I decide to have some babies, I’ll get some more – but hey, #thisisme! My beautiful bubba will be so much more important than a few lines on my bod!”
“We equate beauty for women with youth, and that’s sad. It’s a shame it’s so hard for so many of us to appreciate the beauty of an older woman and to accept it in ourselves, I don’t want to erase my history on my face.”
“If I decide to shave my armpits or grow them out, that’s up to me,” she said. “For me, body hair is another opportunity for women to exercise their ability to choose – a choice based on how they want to feel and their associations with having or not having body hair.”
“My body has given me the greatest gift of my life: Luca, 5 years ago. I’m turning 30 in September and my body is healthy and gets me where I need to go. Ladies, let’s be proud of what we’ve got and stop wasting precious time in the day wishing we were different, better, and unflawed.”
“I work out. I do my best to eat well. I love the skin I’m in. And I’m not ashamed of a few lumps, bumps or cellulite… and you shouldn’t be either.”
“Aging is natural, and that’s going to happen to all of us … I just want to always look like myself, even if that’s an older version of myself. I think when you do too much of that cosmetic stuff, you become somebody else in a way.”
Kim Kardashian West
“If you have psoriasis, you can’t let it ruin your life or get the best of you. You have to do what you can to make sure you are comfortable but not let it take over.”
