In A Moving Instagram Post, Cara Delevingne Demonstrates How Beauty Is 'Limitless'

"Its exhausting to be told what beauty should look like. I am tired of society defining beauty for us."

Cara Delevingne recently turned heads at the 2017 Met Gala with her shaved hair and silver-painted head, but now her message about inclusive beauty is catching our attention. 

The model took to Instagram to write a few celebratory Instagram posts which focused on embracing our true selves. In the first post, she included a photo of her futuristic Met Gala silver head.

"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."

In the second post, Delevingne included a candid street shot of herself and asked some important questions about how we define beauty as a society.

"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?"

Since the posts were uploaded on May 3, they have received 1.4 million likes and 2.3 million likes respectively.

As British Vogue points out, Delevingne has long celebrated individuality and embracing who you are. And she frequently uses her social media channels to spread positive messages

In 2016, she also penned an essay in Time about self-acceptance and realizing work isn't everything. In the piece she wrote, 

"It's taken time, but now I realize that work isn't everything and success comes in many forms. I've opened my mind, and now I embrace new things with a childlike curiosity. I'm spending more time doing the stuff I love. And I've been able to do better work because of it."

The model and actress's recent Instagram posts are just another brilliant example of her helping to spread great messages.
