Photographer Alexi Lubomirski sets out to correct the fashion industry's preference for a uniform standard of beauty. This oversized, 200-page monograph presents beautiful women of every size, shape, age, race, ability and sexual or gender orientation.

England-born, New York–based photographer Alexi Lubomirski has become an established name within the fashion industry, shooting for such publications as Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and GQ, and working with cover stars such as Charlize Theron, Gwyneth Paltrow, Natalie Portman, Jennifer Lopez and Nicole Kidman, to name but a few. It was after shooting Lupita Nyong’o, however, that Lubomirski was struck by the homogeneity of the subjects he’d been hired to shoot professionally. Often when he submitted a list of models he was interested in shooting, responses would range along the lines of “we love her, but...,” “her hair is a problem,” “she is too dark” or “she is too light to make a statement.”
In Diverse Beauty, Lubomirski aims to move beyond the underrepresentation of women from a range of ethnicities in fashion media. The volume compiles his photographs of beautiful women of every color, size, age and sexual orientation in a celebration of beauty that adds dimension to the standards so omniscient in Western fashion magazines and advertisements.
This handsome volume of cinematic fashion portraiture--featuring such subjects as Lupita Nyong’o, Rashida Jones, Salma Hayek, Demi Lovato, Anja Rubik, Jennifer Lopez, Chanel Iman, Hari Nef, Isabella Rossellini, Tyra Banks and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, among many others--is also a small step in the direction of changing societal norms.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Yahoo Beauty

Faith Cummings

In an industry that can feel exclusive and snobby, Alexi Lubomirski is proof that inclusivity and openness work just as well, if not better.

Allure

Seunghee Suh

...it was after shooting actress Lupita Nyong’o that Lubomirski was struck by the homogeneity of the 'looks' he'd been assigned to shoot professionally...In response, the photographer conceived Diverse Beauty (Damiani), which celebrates women including TSS survivor Lauren Wasser and transgender model Hari Nef.

Fashion Week Favorite: Alexi Lubomirski: Diverse Beauty

Fashion Week Favorite: Alexi Lubomirski: Diverse Beauty, Sabina KarlssonIn Diverse Beauty, photographer Alexi Lubomirski presents "a more realistic spectrum of beauty than what the fashion industry typically presents to us." His portraits challenge simplistic labels like "Black. White. Asian. Latin. Gay. Lesbian. Transgender. Albino. Sexy. Edgy. Ginger. Plus-size," he writes. "A specialist in this subject, Dr. Sandra K. Chapman, mentioned to me that if you were to ask these people to describe themselves, more often than not, they would never use the words listed above. Instead, they might say: Mother. Sister. Artist. Activist. Scholar. Lover. Poet. So I asked my subjects to describe themselves, allowing each individual to 'own' their labels rather than have labels thrust upon them." Sabina Karlsson, pictured here, chooses the words "diverse, colorful, strong, power." continue to blog

Fashion Week Favorite: Alexi Lubomirski: Diverse Beauty

Fashion Week Favorite: Alexi Lubomirski: Diverse Beauty, Cipriana and TK QuannInspired by a photo shoot with the luminous Kenyan actress and filmmaker Lupita Nyong’o, who prayed as a young girl "that she would wake up with lighter skin," photographer Alexi Lubomirski embarked on the project now published in the new book, Alexi Lubomirski: Diverse Beauty. "I wanted to celebrate beauty in fashion, with no boundaries or limitations, and to put every type of beauty on a pedestal. If a girl was 'too freckly,' I wanted to flip it and celebrate her freckles. If her hair was 'too wild,' I wanted to celebrate her hair. If she was 'too quirky,'
I wanted to celebrate her uniqueness. Featured here are twins Cipriana and TK Quann. continue to blog
