Although this has been one of the most body-positive fashion months ever, there's still more work to be done when it comes to representation on the runway.
Internationally, body positivity has been lagging — rarely do you see the Paris runways representing all types of women. Thanks to L'Oreal's Paris Fashion Week show, top stars got a chance to redefine beauty on their own terms.
Iskra Lawrence, Winnie Harlow, Jane Fonda, and more walked in L'Oreal's super inclusive Paris Fashion Week show.
After high-end designer Prabal Gurung slammed European Fashion Week for lagging in body positivity, it seems like change has finally come.
A variety of races, ages, and body types graced L'Oreal's Paris Fashion Week runway show at the Champs-Élysées. The show featured body-positive activist Iskra Lawrence, vitiligo supermodel Winnie Harlow (pictured above), 79-year-old Jane Fonda, and 72-year-old Helen Mirren. Doutzen Kroes, Maria Borges, Adwoa Aboah, and Barbara Palvin walked in the show, too!
79-year-old Fonda threw up peace signs and waved to the audience, and everyone lost their damn minds.
Fonda, who we last saw shading Megyn Kelly live on television, looked like she was having the best time.
The L'Oreal Paris Fashion Week show was a pivotal moment for body positivity worldwide.
It's important for runways across the globe to have diverse representation. Seeing women of all races, ages, and sizes on the runway shouldn't be an anomaly. Both fashion insiders and the public alike cheered in-person and online when they saw the L'Oreal runway. Hopefully other designers will notice, and there'll be more diverse runways moving forward!
