When it comes to the world of fashion models, they are the epitome of the perfect body. Their looks are flawless and they are everything that we all want to be in terms of appearances. For decades, women have put their bodies through the ringer, all for the sake of emulating the people that they see in the fashion magazines. If clothes and merchandise is presented with someone who is beautiful, then the product is sure to sell, as we all want to be just like the beautiful people. But in the last few years, new supermodels have emerged that look nothing like the cookie cutter people that we see on the runway every day. The people in this video have all become fashion models in their own right, and have used their uniqueness to their advantage. Because these people are different, they are often met with criticism and scrutiny for even daring to break the mold of the fashion industry. Here are ten of the most unusual fashion models who have started to create lucrative careers from the fashion industry.
Daphne Selfe is 86 years old and is quite a busy fashion model. She has been modeling since she was young, and has appeared on magazine covers and videos. Because she is much older than the traditional fashion models, she stands out like a fabulously dressed thumb. Daphne believes that Botox is a waste of time and that we should all embrace our aging.
Amazon Eve is not only six feet eight inches tall, but she is also transgender, making her one of the most unique fashion models in the industry. If Eve looks familiar, then you probably remember her from “American Horror Story: Freak Show”, as she has a fairly memorable role on the show. Eve went through her share of bullying growing up because of her height and sexual identity. But she found inspiration from the Amazonian women she read about in the history books.
Casey Legler is a female who works full time as a male model. She first became drawn to the modeling industry after a friend asked her to pose as a man for a photo shoot. Casey has made a very lucrative career from modeling male clothing, and many onlookers can barely tell that she is a woman. She is currently signed with Ford Modeling Agency.
Alex Minsky was serving in Afghanistan when his Humvee ran over a bomb, causing him to lose his right leg. After 47 days in a coma and being honorably discharged, Minsky was discovered by a modeling agent while he was working out at a gym in Los Angeles.
Tess Munster has recently made headlines and has taken the media by storm by being the first model to sign with an agency who is 5’5” and wears a size 22 dress. She is often met with harsh criticism because of her weight, mistakenly believed to be promoting an unhealthy body image because she is fat. However, Tess has paved the way for real plus size models to work in the industry.

I am so sick of transgender. When you tell everybody about it, where's the fun? The pleasure? Whatever happened to people liking to live as the opposite gender and not pointing it out to everyone whom you aren't intimately involved with? The cool part was to look like a guy in a tuxedo or a nice suit or a girl who was tres chic in a miniskirt or a slit sided skirt and stiletto heels and fooling everyone unless you were a stage star like someone in "La Cage Aux Folles" or (well, this is pushing it a bit) Marlene Dietrich in a tuxedo in "Morocco" (Dietrich never tried to look like a man, just, ya know, kinda...sorta...butch) I mean....what are you asking of other people? "Tell me what a sexy woman I look like"....or "don't I look totally scary as a shaved head biker dude when we all know I'm still a feemale?" It just seems narcissistic to me. But then, as a narcissist myself, I get it. You just want everyone to totally, like, want to lust after you. Which can be very very pleasant, y'know? When I was a confused teen we called it "wanting to be stroked".NO, not that way. I mean petted softly, like a cat, making you feel good and happy and *sigh* purrrrrrrr--oops, comfy and relaxed....The bad part is that some people want to do the opposite and jump you (if you were a male transvestite) and decide to rape you because you were enticing or needed to be taken down a peg or two....and it works the other way, too....Sorry 4 babbling. I'll get angry replies.
An analysis of representative literature concerning the widely recognized ineffective learning of "place-value" by American children arguably also demonstrates a widespread lack of understanding of the concept of place-value among elementary school arithmetic teachers and among researchers themselves. Just being able to use place-value to write numbers and perform calculations, and to describe the process is not sufficient understanding to be able to teach it to children in the most complete and efficient manner.
A conceptual analysis and explication of the concept of "place-value" points to a more effective method of teaching it. However, effectively teaching "place-value" (or any conceptual or logical subject) requires more than the mechanical application of a different method, different content, or the introduction of a different kind of "manipulative". First, it is necessary to distinguish among mathematical 1) conventions, 2) algorithmic manipulations, and 3) logical/conceptual relationships, and then it is necessary to understand each of these requires different methods for effective teaching. And it is necessary to understand those different methods. Place-value involves all three mathematical elements.
Practice versus Understanding.
Almost everyone who has had difficulty with introductory algebra has had an algebra teacher say to them "Just work more problems, and it will become clear to you. You are just not working enough problems." And, of course, when you cant work any problems, it is difficult to work many of them. Meeting the complaint "I cant do any of these" with the response "Then do them all" seems absurd, when it is a matter of conceptual understanding. It is not absurd when it is simply a matter of practicing something one can do correctly, but just not as adroitly, smoothly, quickly, or automatically as more practice would allow. Hence, athletes practice various skills to make them become more automatic and reflexive; students practice reciting a poem until they can do it smoothly; and musicians practice a piece until they can play it with little effort or error. And practicing something one cannot do very well is not absurd where practice will allow for self-correction. Hence, a tennis player may be able to work out a faulty stroke himself by analyzing his own form to find flawed technique or by trying different things until he arrives at something that seems right, which he then practices. But practicing something that one cannot even begin to do or understand, and that trial and error does not improve, is not going to lead to perfection or --as in the case of certain conceptual aspects of algebra-- any understanding at all.
