Beauty is certainly subjective, but there are probably very few people who will openly admit to finding acne attractive. For many, it’s associated with a time in their life when they were most self-conscious and desperate to fit in. Being a teenager sucks.
But not everyone is done with acne after their teen years are over. Many adults face discrimination because of skin conditions that are essentially out of their control. To be honest, I seriously doubt that Malaysian designer Moto Guo was thinking about that when he decided to use models with acne at his Milan Fashion Week show, but you really never know.
It would be awesome if this were really a new style. Not only would it destigmatize a totally normal, human skin complaint, it would make getting ready in the morning so much easier. I wouldn’t even check myself in the mirror.
