You might remember a few months ago, we did a post on Cassandra Bankson. A teen who has been plagued with acne since age 9, she became Internet famous for her sans-makeup YouTube video showing how to get a flawless face despite having severe acne (in case you missed it, I posted the video below). Since she made the tutorial, the video has gotten 45 million views, she has been featured in several magazines and modeled for Sephora and Hourglass Cosmetics.
Things just got better for the 19-year-old. Cassandra was asked to walk the runway during New York Fashion Week as part of Stacey Igel’s “Boy meets girl” show. This girl stepped out her comfort zone and shared her “flaws” with the world, reminding us all that no one is perfect.. but you can’t let it get you down. I would say it paid off.
What do you think about Cassandra getting a chance to walk the runway at NYFW?
