Cara Delevingne is challenging mainstream beauty standards

Earlier this week, actress and model, Cara Delevingne stepped out at the Met Gala sporting a fierce, silver-painted bald head.

The bold look was met with mixed reviews online, but as always, Cara had the perfect response for her critics.

In two recent Instagram posts the star explains her disgust with mainstream beauty standards.

She wrote, “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.”

Another post showed a candid picture of the model which had been shared by a number of media outlets. 

She wrote, “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?”

Bald or not, Cara continues to admirably challenge society's 'ideal' beauty standards and we fully support her message.
