Around 30 years ago, the fashion industry mainly showcased slim, long-legged beauties with soft facial features on the runway. However, since the early 2000s, there has been a noticeable shift in the appearance of models. Nowadays, fashion shows embrace diversity, featuring women with various body shapes, hairstyles, and skin colors.
