Model Mob is a group of area fashion models who weigh in on a variety of issues for CTFashionMag.com and provide selfies that illustrate their replies.
In the spirit of body positivity, we asked what do you like most about yourself.
Katerina said her favorite thing about her is her red hair.
Aislynn said her favorite features of hers are her long limbs and hair. Her long legs make walking the runway easier and the longer the runway, the better, she said. Her distinguishing feature is her long hair and she love its versatility and who doesn’t want mermaid hair? she said.

“What I like most about myself is that I’m happy being me,” said Vanessa. “I have my own style and present myself by the way I dress, speak and act based on who I am individually.”
Ava said, My hair has always been my staple. Everyone has always known me as the girl with big blonde hair and I absolutely love it! The bigger my hair is, the bigger my confidence is. I embrace it and recognize that it makes me unique!”
Driena said, “This is a hard question to answer. Depending on the moment, I feel good about different parts of my body. As a woman with thyroid issues, my neck swells, I bloat, my skin gets dry, I still breakout, and I get insecure about a number of things on any given day. However, one thing that remains the same and I am confident in at all times is my smile. The way my cheeks lift, my eyes change shape and my ‘almost’ dimple shows are all things I love about me when I smile. I’m learning to love myself as I am and although it’s a difficult process in the days of plastic surgery, I’m proud of the progress I’m making.”
Michela said she likes her long fingers because it helps when she plays piano and her long legs for dancing classes.
Emma said: “What I like most about myself is my hair. I can do so many different styles with it curly or straight. My hair is naturally curly, so braiding my hair after I shower is fun to see what kind of curls come out of them. Body positivity is so important because everyone is beautiful in their own special way.”
