10. Laura O’Grady
Big protruding ears cannot be called beautiful in any way, but Laura O’Grady proved to the whole world that this external flaw can be turned into dignity.
Since childhood, she had to endure the ridicule of her peers, but in 2010, at the age of 15, she still found the courage to go to the Elite Model Look competition, where she was noticed. She was offered a contract and since then her career has gone up.
2013 was especially successful for her when Laura started working with Select fashion agency in London . At the same time, she was invited to appear in Vogue magazine, and was also invited to participate in the shows of Giorgio Armani and other brands .
Despite the fact that photographers always try to emphasize Laura’s ears in their photos, focusing on this feature, the model herself, apparently, is not happy with her. This conclusion can be made if you carefully study her Instagram : in most photos, she tries to hide her ears with her hair or chooses such angles for pictures so that they are as invisible as possible.

8. Daphne Greeneveld
Daphne Greeneveld is a Dutch model who quickly gained fame. She is originally from Leiderdorp, Netherlands. This diva grew up with her supportive parents, who have yet to be revealed. Sources suggest she has an older brother.
She started her career as a model from an early age. A modeling agent discovered her when she was just 13 years old. At this point, the diva decided to finish her education and dropped out of school.

7. Diandra Forrest
She is white and yet black. Her hair is naturally blonde, her skin and facial hair are milky white, her eyes are green, and her lips and nose are clearly African. She is Diandra Forrest , the albinism role model and the most stunning supermodel of our time.
She was born in the Bronx, New York on October 22, 1989, to African American parents. She is not the only albino in the family – of her three siblings, she also has a brother with the same condition.
The term “albino” comes from the word “albus” – the Latin word for “white”. About one in 17,000 people are born with this rare genetic disorder characterized by loss of pigment in the skin, hair and sometimes eyes. Albino people lack melanin, the substance responsible for the natural color of hair and skin. The condition affects people of all nationalities around the world.
As an albino child, Diandra did not initially feel different from her black family members. It dawned on her when the other children started asking if she was adopted. Since the albino grew up in a predominantly black area and in a school where most of the residents had dark skin, problems were inevitable.
There were several name-calling and ridicule from some of the children – the ” white girl” and “Casper”, which Diandra recalls. “ I used to come home crying ,” she told the BBC. “ In childhood, you are teased, and some people grow out of things, but you cannot grow out of an albino, ” she admitted in an interview with ABC News.

5. Lily McMenami
This girl started her career at 18 thanks in large part to her mother Kristen McMenamy, who was a successful (and beautiful) model in the past. Now Lily is one of the most sought-after models, although few people love her. Almost no one believes that Lily McMenamy would have been allowed on the catwalk without her mother’s patronage.
4. Erica Irwin
