At a first glance, Sophia Hadjipanteli looks like your typical model. She’s blonde, beautiful and has great eyebrows. Look a little closer and you’ll see she has a full on unibrow, replacing Frida Kahlo as the icon for strong-browed women. Sophia’s unique look has racked up almost 60,000 followers on Instagram. And though many praise her for showing a different view of beauty, there are a few that love to tell the model how unattractive a monobrow really is. For every ‘ugly’ comment, Sophia is aiming to hit back by kickstarting the #UnibrowMovement: a hashtag that she hopes will “normalise [things] that society pressures us to hide or fix. I want to encourage tolerance of others, acceptance of differences, and most importantly- be proud of who you are.” If you’re wondering why Sophia’s eyebrows are so dark, here’s a secret: they’re tinted. The model got so tired of having to fill in her naturally blonde brows that she tinted them, accidentally turning them black. Fortunately, she was over the moon with the look and now regularly ensures to tint them whenever the blonde starts coming through. “I am not really doing this to show people that they have to like [my unibrow], I am more so doing it to show people that they can get on with their lives by having a preference,” she told Harper’s Bazaar . “I personally think my face looks better this way. Others disagree, and that’s totally cool. I am not trying to get anyone on the unibrow bandwagon. If I like this, just let me like this.” “I want to be sure that I am not defined by the way I look right now. I look at [my unibrow] like it’s winged eyeliner or red lipstick. In five years I might look back and think, ‘that was a cool phase!’ But until people start to accept others for this specific feature on their face, I won’t feel ready to move on from it.” Take a look at Sophia’s bold brows along with some other women who are redefining modern beauty with their body hair.

Brazilian fashion model Alessandra Ambrosio set pulses racing as she stripped down to the hip - save for a chic cowboy hat – for a latest photoshoot in Colorado. Ambrosio has been working for Victoria's Secret for the longest time and most recently was spotted flaunting her modelling skills and curves for the lingerie brand's western-inspired pictures. Clearly, a body-confident Ambrosio had no qualms about going almost naked and strutting around in an outdoor location.
When it comes to fashion magazines, the September issue is always the year’s most coveted one. It’s full of the new season’s top trends to try at home and the annual issue that most people are likely to keep. As a result, it tends to be packed with advertising – making it one thick mag to get through. As a celebrity, scoring the September cover is a big win. It secures your status as an A-lister, leaving no doubt in anyone’s mind as to your relevance. So, who made the cut this year? Vogue made a big splash with not one, but four September covers. Each starring one of the world’s hottest actresses: Jennifer Lawrence . Across the pond in the UK, Alexandra Shulman ensured her final British Vogue issue was just as compelling with not one, but five top models on the cover. Selena Gomez, who has tried her hand at fashion design with her first bag for Coach , scored InStyle while Kirsten Dunst looked lovely in polka dots on the cover of Nylon. And there was a superstar sandwich on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar with Adriana Lima and Irina Shayk as the bread and The Weeknd as the filling. Katy Perry was barely recognisable on the cover of W in a futuristic get-up and Angelina Jolie struck a pose as a strong, single lady on the cover of Vanity Fair. The Hadid sisters may not have scored US or UK Vogue, but the duo made sure they got their fashion bible moments on the covers of Vogue Korea and China. Without further ado, next month’s must-buy mags. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day. For Twitter updates, follow @YahooStyleUK .

Plus size model, body activist and total babe Ashely Graham continues to break barriers. Graham, who was the first plus size model to grace the covers of Vogue and Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition , ecently added a New York Magazine to her already impressive resume. But aside from absolutely slaying her 1940s-style shoot , Graham also openly discussed how white privilege has played a roll in her success as a plus size model. “I know I’m on this pedestal because of white privilege,” said Graham in the feature. “To not see black or Latina women as famous in my industry is crazy! I have to talk about it. I want to give those women kudos because they are the ones who paved the way for me.” While we love Graham and her messages of body positivity and female empowerment, we’d also love to see more curvy women in the spotlight. So we’ve rounded up seven plus size models of colour that we think more people should know about. Click through the gallery to see more and let us know what you think by tweeting us @YahooStyleCA .
