The Naked Diaries is Redefining Society’s Understanding of Womanhood

Words Tori West

Sharing candid, un-retouched portraits of the female form.

Boasting over 160k followers, The Naked Diaries has evoked an online body-positive revolution, providing the internet with an honest— and much-needed — approach to the female form. Curated by Taylor Giavasis, the account and website publishes portraits alongside personal essays and stories by women from all over the globe. In an interview with PEOPLE last year, the creative discussed her thoughts behind the project: “Real beauty is what makes you unique,” she says. “It’s curves, stretch marks, moles, laugh lines, skinny and thick legs. I want to depict the beauty of uniqueness, and hopefully, teach people they should celebrate what they think their flaws are.”

The account features all women of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds, celebrating our indifferences and proving that everyone, is, in fact, beautiful. “I want to depict the beauty of natural females,” Giavasis tells PEOPLE. “I think many people try to hide if they grow extra hair, have one boob bigger than another, or any other natural thing that we look at as ‘flaws.’”
