Rejecting Beauty Standards

Scroll
Words

In Paola Kudacki‘s photography series ‘Plasticity‘, American model Leila Goldkuhl is tied up in nylon gourmets, questioning our chase for perfection.

The series, shot for the London-based beauty magazine ‘Beauty Papers, suggest how tight beauty standards are in modern media narration. The model is trying to escape plastic band and nylon gourmets, styled by Akari Endo-Gaut and representing the struggle to find one’s true identity and the definition of beauty. At the same time, the only visible element of make-up in the editorial is the upside-down eye line, a subversive gesture of rejecting the classical beauty.
