Celebrities really are like us, because as it turns out none is "perfect." Not one. But one way they're different than us: they embrace what makes them unique and so have won our hearts. The more different, the less generic, the better. Take that as a lesson the next time you look in the mirror and decide one of your less common physical traits seems like a flaw rather than an asset. And refer back to this article because I'm about to drop some knowledge on you that will prove the things we don't appreciate are just waiting to be embraced not only by ourselves, but others, too. Show it off and be proud just like these women have.
These little spots of color have been lamenting adult women for eons. But look how adorable Emma Stone is. Worried freckles just can't be sexy? Whether you're rocking the girl-next-door look or have the smoldering appeal of Lucy Liu, your freckles are banging.

While women with naturally straight tresses always have that sleek look down pat, a woman with naturally curly hair, like Sarah Jessica Parker, can have it both ways. Well, all ways actually. Perfectly straight, perfectly curly, perfectly bed head wavy. And she doesn't need to go to the salon to do it.

Diane Kruger is a fashion darling, no doubt. She takes calculated risks with her wardrobe and they usually pay off. Why? In part due to her fair skin. It is literally a blank canvas with which so much adornment and color can take center stage. She can go bold with a red lip, or be totally natural as seen here and still look ethereal.
On the flip side of our rainbow of skin colors is the stunning Alek Wek. She'll never be mistaken for a shrinking violet with a smile that looks 10 times brighter because of her gorgeous coloring. She doesn't need to drape herself in long hair or accessories. Her person is show-stopping enough.

Gwen Stefani is known for her signature red lip. Her pout isn't plump, but it's gorgeous just the same. And she doesn't hide it away. Don't be afraid of a bright red for your lips, regardless of thickness. And when you really want to play up your eyes, a nude color will have them taking the spotlight.
If you've got hips, this is your style mentor. Bodycon gowns look like they were invented for Beyonce, she wears them so well. Would she be as sexy without those hips? More the reason to show off yours!

Love Kate Hudson's style, which is bursting with down-to-there V-necks. If your girls are humble, be prepared to pull off pieces that only you and yours can dare try. We're talking tiny spaghetti straps, backless, and those plunging necklines. It's about showing off that part that makes you unique! Beginning to figure that out? You get to look classy and elegant, no matter what you're wearing, too.
No one would deny Salma Hayek is an ageless beauty from the neck up. And no one would deny she's got va-va-voom all the way from the neck down. Breasts are oh-so-nice when it comes to showing off your femininity. Never worry about the wrong kind of attention. Stand tall with your shoulders back and you'll be seen as a strong woman not to mess about, just like Salma, in addition to being adored.
Olivia Palermo looks amazing in everything. In everything! And if you've got a similar figure, you do too. You can be a total risk-taker who wears trends like you invented them. You can also pull off heavy pieces that girls with curves might look frumpy in. You don't have to go bodycon, your look is stately and upper crust, all the way.
Did you know Eva Longoria is 5'2"? Petite women have their place in the pantheon of beauty. No partner is too short and even the tallest ones are said to love the protective feeling they get from a small woman. There's also no heel too high.
At 5'11", Bundchen could've been a volleyball star or a supermodel. Still very into health and fitness, her athletic frame lets her keep up with the boys, literally. And when you have legs for miles, you've got throngs of admirers when you don those mini dresses and skirts. Regal is another word we'd use to describe a woman with height. And let's face it, we can't all look royal, but you can!
