There is something unique about Tyra. That girl has something remarkable and I’m not only talking about her style. It’s one of those rare women who can change your perspective once you notice them.
I never had a false idea about models. Sure there are beautiful women but still I always understood how hard most of them work for that beauty. I am also well aware of the fact that beauty comes and goes..
So the reason why I admire Tyra so much is her ability to adjust and evolve. After her glorious modeling career (remember that she modeled during the greatest era of modeling with all the other supermodels) she didn’t just rest. University degree- and not just from any university! Harvard ladies!- tv shows, magazines, books, photography, singing, publication group and so much more! It is amazing how talented some people can be.
But it’s not just her talent that I admire.
This is one of those days where I don’t want to present to you nothing else but myself. And this is because I’ve felt so much of your love and support this week that I feel the need to express my gratitude towards all you wonderful people filling me with so much joy! I might sound mellow,but it’s true!!
Yes, I get it why a Hollywood celebrity, a global pop singer or even I high profile politician might need a personal stylish.
But for the rest of us common people that might not be so necessary!
I have always found myself looking at magazines and complaining “why she looks so gorgeous and I can’t” or “if I had her assistants I would look as amazing as she does”, and I wasn’t really doing anything about it.
Obviously I never hired a stylist: I just became my personal one!
For quite sometime I was feeling awful about myself. Whether it was my weight (although I never weighed more than 53kg), or my hair or my style. I began to love fashion a long time ago. Although I had a good eye for looks I never tried any of my ideas. Instead I kept going shopping with my friends and I was creating looks for them. I never thought I deserved any of these.
No, I didn’t have any mental conditions, I wasn’t depressed or anything. I was just brainwashed by tv and the hole celebrity looks I got to see in magazines. I was a normal girl but I was led to believe I wasn’t even a mediocre looking one!
I know many of you young girls out there feel the same. You see movie stars or singers looking great almost effortlessly and you feel you don’t even matter.
Fashion is art. Is the expression of your personality, your mood and your culture. From time to time it may change- for the better or the worse. Fashion can be a lot of things but it doesn’t have to be one: forced. Nowadays it’s common for young girls to just follow a celebrity style. This is wrong. Be yourself! Yes,get ideas from celebrities, get inspiration. But don’t just copy someone. Be you, be true to yourself.
You don’t have to spend tons of money in order to be beautiful and trendy and in fashion. Use smart ways and solutions to save money and time. Don’t just be a fashion victim and shop everything you see.
