Model and actress Cara Delevingne recently shaved her hair off for a role in Life in a Year, and she's taken the opportunity to send a strong message about social expectations and beauty.
She debuted the new look at the 2017 Met Gala, with painted silver:
In a follow up photo on Instagram, Cara asks questions like: “Who are we? How are we defining beauty? What do we see as beautiful?”
"It's exhausting to be told what beauty should look like. I am tired of society defining beauty for us. Strip away the clothes. Wipe off the make up, cut off the hair. Remove all the material possession. Who are we? How are we defining beauty? What do we see as beautiful?"
Cara recognises that beauty is a social construct, so it’s up to us to continue to evolve and re-define what it is. We couldn't agree more!
