Twins Lara and Mara Bawar are showing the world what beauty looks like with their stunning photographs. The twins, who hail from São Paolo, Brazil, were discovered by fashion photographer Vinicius Terranova. They might only be 11 years old, but these girls are already changing the face of the modeling world one photoshoot at a time.
Lara and Mara Bawar are giving the model industry some serious life with their beautiful photos.
Lara and Mara are twins with albinism which means that their hair, skin, and eyes lack the melanin that give people their tones. For them, it is the albinism that makes them so beautiful.
“We feel albinism is pretty, we love our hair, eye color and skin tone,” Lara told Daily Mail. “Our hair and skin tone are pretty and we feel very special wearing the makeup, hair and light that are worked to fit us. We also love to read the beautiful comments on our pictures.”
Swiss photographer Vinicius Terranova first ran into the twins (photographed below with their older sister Sheila) while in São Paolo, Brazil and knew immediately that she wanted to work with them.
Terranove told Daily Mail that she first worked with the girls on her project “Flores Raras/Rare Flowers” and was inspired by their sheer beauty and great work ethic.
The twins are showing the modeling industry the beauty that can be found in diversity.
“A beauty that is not that uncommon but rather rarely perceived while out there every day, ready to be noticed and given its deserved spotlight,” Terranova told Daily Mail. “A plea to the power of diversity, it represents the encounter of their sublime beauty.”
These. Girls. Are. Beautiful!
And, the twins absolutely love being different.
“Growing up like this was amazing, we love being different and are happy with our unique beauty,” Mara told Daily Mail.
