Paris Jackson got real about why she’s totally okay with not fitting into “a runway sample size”
Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes — but while we know this, sometimes it’s tough to believe. That said, things are definitely changing for the better. Model and actress Paris Jackson doesn’t fit into a sample size and is still incredibly proud of her body. In fact, Jackson believes that she can help bring a new attitude to the fashion world today.
In her eyes, since the definition of perfection is different for everyone, it’s an opinion.
"I'm not symmetrical, I'm not a size zero, I eat hella burgers and endless amounts of pizza," she said in a text-based interview with i-Dmagazine. "I can't fit into a runway sample size of designer clothes, I have scars and stretch marks and acne and I have cellulite. I'm human. Not a dress-up doll. The idea that we all have to fit one idea of beauty is outrageous and ridiculous because 'perfection' is just an opinion."
It’s kind of refreshing to know that Jackson doesn’t necessarily follow a diet, nor does she try to mask her scars and stretch marks. Especially since those are the types of markings that make us unique.
Jackson has turned a lot of heads recently, and aside from the fact that she’s the daughter of the late Michael Jackson, it’s probably because she’s been bold and unapologetic.
Of course, Jackson isn’t perfect. But she’s definitely self-aware.
"I still have countless insecurities and fears, like everyone else I know," she said. "But we're getting there, slowly but surely. Which is a big reason I want to change this fashion/beauty stigma, so it's not as difficult for people around the world to feel beautiful just the way they are."
How will she change the beauty stigma? Well, she’s letting people know the true marks of a beautiful person.
"Beauty, true beauty, should be measured by the soul, the character, integrity, intentions, and mindset of a person, what comes out of their mouth. How they behave. Their heart," she said.
Jackson is such a positive influence, and we definitely think that her involvement in the fashion world might very well change things for the better.
