Unlike reality TV star Kim Kardashian, performer Rihanna and country singer LeAnn Rimes -- who just can’t stop Tweeting and posting super-sexy, ultra-glam photos of themselves on the Web, one actress is breaking away from the ‘Look At Me. I’m So Perfect’ pack.
90210 star AnnaLynne McCord is usually seen on the carpets, on TV and in films, looking sultry and pouty, with flawless makeup and expertly coiffed locks. But today, the 24-year old actress proved she’s the Anti-Kim by tweeting a photo of herself with a completely bare face with an unmistakeable smattering of red blemishes.
Her Tweet read: "To all my girls (and boys) who have ever been embarrassed by their skin! I salute you! I'm not perfect--and that's okay with me!"
This is quite a welcome change from all those starlets who never leave their houses without being attended to by a makeup artist and hair stylist.
There's a growing backlash to unachieveable perfection in the media, the rampant over-airbrushing of celebrities and the use of very young, super skinny models in fashion ads, all of which has become a call to action for advertisers and magazines.
Cosmetic ads featuring the overly retouched images of Julia Roberts supemodel Christy Turlington and were banned in the UK for being deceptive advertising. Editors at Vogue have also vowed to make changes, saying last week that they too would no longer use models younger than 16 or who showed signs of suffering from eating disorders.
"Vogue believes that good health is beautiful. Vogue editors around the world want the magazines to reflect their commitment to the health of the models who appear on the pages and the well-being of their readers," said Conde Nast International Chairman Jonathan Newhouse.
Maybe McCord is onto something with her anti-perfection stand. Wouldn't life be so much easier if women could stop striving to be model perfect and to look thinner, prettier, taller, sexier, and have perfect skin and shampoo commercial glossy hair?
