Each of us has our own definition of beauty. Whether it’s a seriously made-up celebrity or a woman in her natural state, the word ‘beautiful’ conjures up a number of images.That was the starting point behind Romanian photographer Mihaela Noroc’s new book, ‘The Atlas of Beauty‘. In it, she captures what beauty looks like to women across the world.The far-reaching project began in 2013 and has seen Mihaela travel the globe with nothing but a backpack and camera. From the favelas of Brazil and the isolated villages of Afghanistan to the Amazon rainforest, the 32-year-old managed to photograph over 2000 women as well as listen to stories about their daily lives.“While travelling, I noticed that there’s a lot of pressure on women to look and behave in a certain way,” she says. “In some environments, it is the pressure to look attractive. In others, it is the pressure to look modest.”Mihaela hopes that the book – which features 500 portraits of women from over 50 countries – will “showcase that beauty has no bounds, and that the diversity of our world is a treasure, not a reason for conflict.”“Beauty is in our differences. It’s about being yourself: natural and authentic, not about trends, race or social status.”Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

In light of Pirelli’s last two releases, it seems that the era of the white-washed, size-six fashion calendar is coming to an end.Only there’s one group of women yet to have a calendar of their very own: plus-sized women.Which is why Brianna McDonnell, a body-positive fashion blogger at the B Word, has decided to create one.The #BeInYourSkin 2018 editorial calendar features 25 plus-size bloggers, influencers and friends as part of a campaign to empower and inspire – an idea which she told Mic came “organically”.“I wanted to create images of plus-size women that were creative, different, sexy, artful, strong, empowering and editorial,” she said. “It’s very rare to see a plus-size body in the media portrayed in an editorial way.”“I wanted to create something for plus-size women, where they could see themselves in the images. If they could see themselves in one of us, they too can be as strong, powerful and glamorous. It is about representation.”You can buy your own here.Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

A photo from a project highlighting the beauty of black skin is rubbing some people the wrong way on social media. The image in question from One, a series by Isaac West featuring stunning models in colorful underwear set behind brightly colored backdrops, places the most light-skinned woman front and center.

We’re all exhausted from seeing the same old depiction of female beauty. Thin, white and flawless is sadly still the look of the day.Rather than just complaining about the lack of diversity, Canadian photographer Julia Busato decided to do something. In an incredibly powerful photo series, she captured a variety of women posing naked with a mannequin.The project, dubbed the ‘Mannequin Series’, aims to illustrate just how women of all ages, sizes and colours have broken the usual beauty barriers. “Beauty should not be defined by a strict set of standards applied to everyone,” Julia told the BBC.Each woman has an uplifting story to tell whether it’s Katrina who opted for a double mastectomy when diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 28 or diabetes sufferer Taylor who wears an insulin pump on her thigh.Although the photos have been shared over 200,000 times, Julia has recently been banned from Facebook thanks to a bout of “malicious reporting.”The photographer won’t let hateful comments stop her and is urging women who wish to take part to get in touch: “The series is being shared all over the world and that brings me so much joy. It lets people know that they aren’t alone and it’s okay to be different than the norm.”“The positivity is outweighing the negativity and bringing society’s stigmas to the forefront to be faced head on. I just want women to love themselves unconditionally because we are all beautiful in our own way.”Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed every day.
