Our beauty story is about a woman who embodies the emotion, fear, and strength of 100 women. She hearing criticism and hatred, feels lost and alone, simply craving love and acceptance. She draws on her own strength and adorns her crown. The story is loosely based on a quote from Lady Gaga “Ignore all the hatred and criticism. Live for what you create and die protecting it.” This quote is something I feel very encouraged by personally. In our industry, we have a lot of jealousy and people are often superficial and petty. It’s up to us to strengthen and arm ourselves and be ready to confront that with confidence.
