Beauty comes in many forms, and these confident women are here to prove it. Kate Wasley, 22, and Georgia Gibbs, 21, Australia-based models and best friends, are promoting body positivity. After Georgia posted the photo above on her Instagram account, many people responded with accusations of her using Photoshop to change their body types. Instead of taking the picture going viral as a negative thing, they used their new fame to send an empowering message to women. They started the Instagram account any.body_co to highlight that both of their figures are spectacular. Read the statement from the two friends.
"We posted this picture online, just as best friends going out on the weekend, it got reposted a lot and the controversy started.. You have photoshopped yourself thinner or your friend bigger, what kind of friend are you? Was one of the comments, it broke my heart because Kate and I are best friends why would I do that? The fact that a simple picture of two people together went so viral purely because of their body types shocked me... and @any.body_co was created because no one should have to deal with that and it shouldn't even be acknowledged, all I see here is two women.. not one 'skinny' woman and one 'curvy' woman, stop comparing everyone to each other and accept every person as beautiful in their own right."
We love that these girls are embracing their beauty, and we hope that it encourages other women to do the same. Make sure to check out all their sweet photos.
