10 Famous Women That Ditched Stereotypes and Decided to Just Be Themselves
Modern society sets very high standards for women. They always have to look perfect, have great nails, flawless hair, and smooth skin, and act like true ladies. It’s hard to meet these standards and even harder to ignore them, especially if you are a public figure with millions of eyes on you all the time. But these famous women stay true to themselves in different ways.

Kim Kardashian sleeps with her makeup on.
Every girl likely knows this important beauty rule — always wash your makeup off. But this star has her own opinion on the matter.
