Harnaam Kaur is a famous bearded woman, who has become very popular online and on Instagram in particular. But once again she has become a newsmaker and there are two reasons for that. Learn what they are.
A body positivity campaigner and model who was bullied throughout her childhood has issued a defiant message to her bullies after opening a fashion show.
Harnaam Kaur has polycystic ovary syndrome, a hormonal condition that causes her to grow excess facial hair.
After years of trying to hide her condition by having painful waxes up tothree times a week, the 25-year-old from Slough now embraces her facial hair. She joined Tess Holliday’s anti-body shaming effyourbeautystandards team three months ago and modelled for Urban Bridesmaid Photography in a series of photos that went viral.
Kaur made her debut on the catwalk by opening the Marianna Harutunian Royal Fashion Day show last week while wearing her traditional Sikh turban, a navy dress and black heels.
This girl is almost 25 years old. She has a rare condition called polycystic ovary syndrome which stimulates the growth of facial hair. This lady has a real beard some men could envy! But she is not ashamed of it, no!
Harnaam Kaur has become a runway model! In 2016 this girl has become the first bearded woman to walk the fashion runway. And not just nay runway, but she has participated in the London Fashion Week!
So, the bullying she had to put up with in the past is over! Now the woman is popular and walks the runways.
The bearded girl has entered the Guinness Book as the youngest woman with beard! So, this means even more publicity and popularity for Harnaam As you see, our time gives all people great chances in life and we can turn our troubles and disadvantages into huge benefits! AM still thinking
“I grew up watching America’s next top model, and I admired Tyra Banks whole heartedly,” Kaur wrote. “I always wanted to be like the pretty models, so I remember copying the way they posed and walked. I grew up being told I was to [sic] fat, ugly, and disgusting to even model… I used to look at models and tell myself that I will never ever be able to do what they are doing. I am not pretty enough or beautiful enough and I don’t have the ‘right’ body type.”
“I was laughed at when I said I wanted to model. Jokes on my bullies. “I was lucky enough to walk for @mariannaharutunian as the first bearded lady to walk for a celebrity jewellery designer. I was humbled to be the first model to walk and open the show for #royalfashionday with the portrait of the legendary #davidbowie looking down on me!”
