Freelance journalist Radhika Sanghani is on a mission to change the way we view our noses. Creating the #sideprofileselfie challenge, Sanghani is encouraging the world to embrace their larger noses by taking a photo of themselves from the side and sharing it with the world. Feeling like larger noses don’t get enough representation in the beauty, fashion and entertainment industry, Sanghani was inspired to create the challenge in order to get big noses the love they deserve.

“In our society, big noses have been taboo for all too long. Take Hollywood. While there are plenty of larger-nosed men, there are just a handful of female celebs with strong profiles: Barbra Streisand, Lady Gaga, Lea Michele, Anjelica Huston and Meryl Streep. Unlike their male peers, they’ve had to deal with criticism of their looks for years, and it’s no surprise that many aspiring female actors are rumoured to have had nose jobs before, or early on in, their career,” she wrote in a piece for Grazia.

Needless to say, we love the idea, and all the distinct and gorgeous people who shared their beautiful side profiles with the world.

 

 

 

“It’s been so freeing to not hide from side profile photos anymore and to actually just like my face,” Sanghani told Mashable. “So what I really want is for women to share their own #sideprofileselfie and start to celebrate their noses.”

So go on, get posting.
