Deux sœurs organisent un défilé Anti-Victoria’s Secret Show contre les stéréotypes de beauté

Alyse et Lexi Scaffidi ont organisé le défilé Anti-Victoria’s Secret Show pour lutter contre le stéréotype de la femme grande et maigre considérée comme la seule au monde à pouvoir mettre en valeur des sous-vêtements. Les deux sœurs ont réuni 21 femmes aux physiques diversifiés et différents de la maigreur exigée chez les mannequins de Victoria’s Secret.

Le défilé Anti-Victoria’s Secret Show a été l’occasion pour Alyse et Lexi de rappeler au monde entier que toutes les femmes peuvent être un « ange », le surnom que l’on donne aux mannequins de Victoria’s Secret. Il a réuni des femmes à la corpulence différente. On y a vu défiler 21 femmes dont l’une était en fauteuil roulant, l’une amputée et l’une a survécu à un cancer. Une mannequin souffrant de nanisme a rejoint le lot. Ce défilé a célébré la différence et l’inclusivité et permis à ces femmes d’être des anges le temps d’une soirée. Alyse et Lexi en ont eu l’idée durant le défilé de Victoria’s Secret en 2016. Elles ont été impressionnées par les designs des lingeries de la marque et ont nourri l’envie d’être des « anges » comme ses mannequins. Leurs silhouettes toniques leur faisant défaut, elles ont décidé de créer leur propre show.

Les deux sœurs ont été critiquées pour leur initiative. Alyse y a répondu en rappelant que ce défilé servait à vaincre le stéréotype de beauté et à célébrer les femmes telles qu’elles sont. Il n’avait aucunement le but de célébrer le surpoids ou l’anorexie. Alyse et Lexi voulaient inspirer les femmes du monde entier à avoir confiance en elles à travers ce défilé.

SWIPE 👈🏻!! WARNING: Some of the images may be graphic, but it’s real life and she’s one of my heroes so it needs to be shown!! . – 3 and a half years ago, 23 year old, @julie_kramer was diagnosed with stage 4 synovial sarcoma (aka rare form of soft-tissue cancer) . – TODAY Julie is cancer FREE and has literally kicked cancer in the ASS! . – If you people think I’m a positive person, Julie is 1000 times more positive and upbeat them I am even after she went through hell and back. . – She’s literally a ray of light that shines all day everyday. (oh and her fiancé @marty_finch is pretty AWESOME too!) . – We were fortunate to have Julie walk as an angel in our body confidence fashion show and she literally killed it!! (I know, she looks like a real @victoriassecret angel right!?!) . – I LOVE this fierce warrior whom I met a few months ago so much!🖤 She is one of the STRONGEST women I know and I have followed her journey since she made it on the @theellenshow a few years back due to her incredible fight! . – CLICK THE LINK IN MY BIO TO WATCH THIS GIRL SLAY THE RUNWAY!! . – Lastly, I leave you with this message from Julie herself ~ “I never thought I took life for granted until I was diagnosed. To be able to see life in a totally different aspect now is incredible and I feel so alive! Life is way too short people. Make sure you don’t sweat the small stuff and do things that truly make you happy! And if you’re ever feeling doubtful of yourself, just remember – life is tough…but so are YOU!” ✨💪🏻#nevergiveup #cancersucks #yolo . . . . #iloveyou #strongwoman #wcw #inspiration #love #gorgeous #victoriassecret #model #angel #synovialsarcoma #cancer #strong #life #happy #smile #vsangel #battle #warrior #selflove #scars #bodyconfidence #fashion #fashionshow #ellen #news #instagram #photography

At just 11 years old @tessnyder was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (a form of bone cancer). The only thing that could save her life was to amputate her leg above the knee and she did just that. . – Imagine being in 5th grade and learning of this diagnosis. (What would you do, how would you feel?) . – Imagine not being able to go to school the next year due to your surgery/chemo and then arriving back the following year and getting made fun of because you lost all your hair and walked with a limp. . – Just because this woman lost her leg from cancer doesn’t limit her ability to do anything and live a normal life. . – Now she is happily married to @caseyvsnyder and has 2 adorable kids! . – If you’re struggling in a situation similar to Tessa’s don’t give up or let the bullies bring you down. Dream big, think positive, and know others out there are on your side!! . – We were fortunate to have had this beautiful soul in our recreation of the #victoriassecret fashion show!🙏🏻💜 (click the link in my bio to watch👆🏼) . . . . . . 📷: @shostikiraphotography @tangiblelittlemoments #cancersucks #17yearscancerfree #fightcancer #cancer #nevergiveup #youwillbeokay #fashion #fighter #selflove #loveyourself #loveyourbody #bodyconfidence #vsangel #angel #victoriassecret #model #njmodel #amputeemodel #osteosarcoma #strongwomen #bitesizedfitness #brave #inspiration #strong #bedifferent #wcw #wce #loveher

December of 2015, 22 year old @chansteinnn life flashed before her eyes. . – She was a passenger in a car accident that ended up wrapped around a telephone pole. . – She suffered a fractured spine and spent countless months in a brace doing very little and attending countless hours of physical therapy. . – PT suggested that she change her career since she is a hair stylist and on her feet most of the day. . – Instead of just giving up and taking the easy route, she chose to work hard and get her body strong again by eating healthy and working out (swipe to see her body transformation in just 8 months💪🏻) . – She said that “this random incident was an eyeopener to how amazing & strong our bodies really are and how often we take them for granted.” . – LOVE YOUR BODY, no matter what shape or size.

One of the beautiful angels that walked in our anti-Victoria’s Secret Fashion show was @jill_ilana !💜 . – @jill_ilana was born an achondroplastic dwarf (the most common of the 300+ types) and is 3”11. . – But being a little person doesn’t hold back this AMAZING individual from living a normal life. . – Something inspiring Jillian said before was that, "I will never know what it’s like to buy a pair of pants that fit me, use all of the gym equipment without difficulty, or walk anywhere without pointing and stares. . – But that’s OKAY. . – Being a dwarf hasn’t stopped me from going to school, driving a car, traveling the world, and overcoming any obstacle that comes my way. And it will NEVER stop me! 👊🏻 . – Quit complaining and start appreciating all that you are blessed with!
