16 Unusual Models Who Are Changing the Face of Beauty

5 years ago

20 years ago, all models were expected to match certain standards like being tall, having perfect facial features, and having a body shape similar to a Barbie doll. But time went on and things started to change — but it’s not enough to just be beautiful nowadays. The models of today should be bright, memorable, and charismatic as well.

At Bright Side, we follow the trends in the fashion industry and therefore, would like to introduce you to models that will be popular all over the world in no time.
