These Naked Pictures Are A Reminder Of What REAL Beauty Looks Like
Stretch marks, scars and body hair – all hail The Naked Diaries ruling Instagram
Teenager Taylor Giavasis (above) has flipped the digital world's obsession with filters on its head by showcasing – and celebrating – raw beauty on her Instagram account The Naked Diaries.
She posts women of all shapes and sizes celebrating their body hair, folds and rolls, bones, scars and stretch marks in gorgeous pictures.
It's powerful stuff; we're so used to seeing heavily edited and beautifully lit selfies that flatter our faces and figures, sometimes we loose sight of the female form's real beauty.
Taylor explained the idea behind her art project came from a situation most of us can relate to. "I was with my friend, and I personally think she's beautiful, but I could tell how self-conscious she was about her body," she told MTV News.
"So, I was like, 'Let me just take pictures of you to show you,' and she let me, and she loved how they looked. She was so happy with them, so I was like, 'Why don't I do this for other girls?'"
Want in? She's inviting us all to become part of the naked revolution by emailing over our personal pics – which we're all for. The more we celebrate diversity, the more we gain a sense of pride for our individuality – which is a beautiful thing.
