12 Female Superstars Innovate Women's Beauty Standards

Female celebrities always try to be shinier, slimmer, and whiter. Hot sexy bodies or forever-young baby faces give them the confidence and advantage to rock on stage and win hearts. Big brands use their images as a message for beauty standards that every lady of all ages should pursue. Therefore, high-classed clothes and cosmetics can dominate the worldwide women's market.
On the opposite side, several superstars decide to rise against those standards. Flaws on faces and bodies should be embraced, not hated. At least, if someone famous doesn't like body flaws and hopes to alter them, it doesn't mean others with similar ones must feel the same. These female stars break the porcelain doll image of an old-fashioned beautiful woman. Scroll down and read more about them!
