Every other week or month we will be focusing our attention on a industry insider to help to get a better understanding of Beauty and Body Positivity. For this blog I have chosen to focus on “Fashion Killer” blogger “Lauren Nicole”.
It appears Nicole has had some some success at a relatively young age of 20 but it was not always like this. Nicole is said to have suffered from “Body Dysmorphia”. This is a Mental Health condition where a person spends a lot of their time worried and concerned about the flaws in their appearance, even when there is none. Its ironic that anyone can have BDD but it is more present in teenagers and young adults.
Apparently the remedy to her cure was to get into modelling! Despite her BDD she was able to model a swim suit. You would think the first photo-shoot, here you go, a swim suit! and then she nailed it and I guess the rest is history.
She was discovered by a Modelling agency after posting a lot of personalized photos of herself on Instagram, then asked her to become their brand ambassador. She was modest to say she did not think her blogs were all that but either way the Modelling agency wanted their woman and they got her.
is a mental health condition where a person spends a lot of time worrying about flaws in their appearance. These flaws are often unnoticeable to others. People of any age can have BDD, but it’s most common in teenagers and young adults.
Here BDD kicked in again when she got the first pictures of her Photoshoot and did not like all of them. but in time I think she came to realize that Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. And what is most important is the person who is looking at you appreciates your beauty.
Having checked out some of her images it is clear to see there is nothing wrong with this Plus-size beauty! I also think this blog goes to show that as a woman you should accept who and what you are first before giving a damn what others think. It is a shame Lauren had to suffer with her BDD but I praise the change in trends which brought out the Body Positivity movement cause there is nothing better than Natural Beauty. When I say that I mean accepting yourself as Beautiful first and then letting that Beauty shine! regardless of what people think!
