It’s difficult to imagine in modern time as now that girls, and even women to this date, pray for different skin colour. Equal desirability and equal opportunity aren’t where we want it to be and that makes a facet of racism–colourism an obstacle we have to overcome as a society. So even though racial, age, ethnic and size diversity is improving in fashion and the media, not every person–male and female included–in our society is not getting the representation they deserve.
At Style Theory, we want to have that conversation and celebrate the differences that make the difference–by addressing the growing pains of looking unlike others in your community. We want to encourage #WomenOfStyleTheory with personal stories to inspire others to own their beauty and find that confidence
Meet Zahra, Eswari, and Michelle.
Myth: Having a fairer skin, I get more compliments and get it easier in life.
Light-skinned has its woes: people think you look pale and ill, and assume you’re not in the pink of health. But for visual merchandiser and style enthusiast Michelle, it’s about understanding what works for you and your unique characteristics–skin tone, body shape, and other traits to find a style that makes you feel better about yourself, every day.
Myth: Being in the public eye means you are 100% confident in your own skin, all the time.
When the spotlight is on you, so is the pressure to present the best version of yourself. Nothing looks better on you than self-confidence! Building the confidence on set while juggling the daily challenges as a student and budding entrepreneur, Eswari has it all under control.
Myth: Beauty pageants are a stroll in the park for good-looking people.
Beauty queen Zahra is one who’s familiar with the pageant circuit and the pressure it brings. Teacher by day, this social personality has put in the hard work and discipline behind the scenes to make a mark for herself and advocate hope and opportunity for better representation for minority communities in her industries.
