In a world full of airbrushing and picture-perfect celebrities, it’s always inspiring to see folks challenge beauty stereotypes. One plus-size model has recently gone viral for spreading a body positivity message by simply copying a Kim Kardashian photo shoot.
To prove beauty doesn’t conform to just one standard, the curvy model and fashion designer Diana Sirokai decided to do her own version of Kim K‘s famous sexy, high-leg one-piece swimsuit photo. The London, LA, and NYC-based model juxtaposed her pic with the reality star’s and uploaded it with an inspiring caption. Sirokai wrote, “WE ARE BOTH WOMEN with DIFFERENT BODIES #Slay.” And gosh, both women look stunning.
Since the photos were posted to her Instagram, Sirokai has received loads of positive feedback and the photo has racked up over 30,000 likes. “I’m 13 years old and not the skinniest I mean I have a little weight on me but after looking at your pictures and how confident u are u have made me so much happier with my body. The world is lucky to such amazing role models like u,” wrote one user. “Thank you for inspiring bigger girls like me,” wrote another.
The model also shared a smokin’ side view pic from the same photoshoot on her Instagram, writing in the caption, “My ‘Flaws’ are my power.” Powerful indeed.
