As a result, it’s especially refreshing to see a young star like Jackson take her efforts to the red carpet. But considering her stance on beauty standards, it’s not entirely surprising.
In an August interview with i-D, she explained that being herself and helping people feel comfortable in their own skin is “a big reason” she wants to “change this fashion/beauty stigma.”
“I’m not symmetrical, I’m not a size zero, I eat hella burgers and endless amounts of pizza,” she said. “I can’t fit into a runway sample size of designer clothes, I have scars and stretch marks and acne and I have cellulite. I’m human. Not a dress-up doll. The idea that we all have to fit one idea of beauty is outrageous and ridiculous because ‘perfection’ is just an opinion.”
