Cara Delevingne Shuts Down Critics of Her Bald Look

Cara Delevingne has never been one to settle for the status quo. From her unique style to her abrupt exodus from the modeling industry, the former model is far from ordinary—and she has no shame in it.

The 24-year-old has recently garnered a lot of attention after shaving her head for her new film role (and spray painting it for the Met Gala); but she has a clear message to critics of her new look: she’s done complying to beauty standards.

Yesterday, she posted a red carpet photo of her Met Ball look with an empowering caption. She encouraged her Instagram followers to “embrace who we are as people” and to focus less on the “physical attributes” because beauty is “limitless.”

The more we embrace who we are as people and rely less on our physical attributes, the more empowered we become. Beauty shouldn’t be so easily defined. It is limitless.

She followed up with another post, this time of a candid paparazzi photo of her sporting the bald cut. “It’s exhausting to be told what beauty should look like, she continued. “I am tired of society defining beauty for us.”

Its exhausting to be told what beauty should look like. I am tired of society defining beauty for us. Strip away the clothes, Wipe Off the make up, cut off the hair. Remove all the material possessions. Who are we? How are we defining beauty? What do we see as beautiful?

She encouraged her followers to see beyond “material possessions” like clothes and makeup, start asking the important questions: “Who are we? How are we defining beauty? What do we see as beautiful?”

After openly speaking about her issues with body image and struggle with depression, Delevingne continues to push for self-love and body positivity, and encourages her fans to do the same.
