Model takes snaps seconds apart to show reality behind Insta ‘beauty standards’


A stunning Instagram model has gone viral by taking two very different pictures seconds apart.

Clara Guillem, @claraandherself, shares photos of herself and her friends posing in ways which make them look in keeping with an Insta-perfect image.

But, to help other women feel confident and reject beauty standards, she also shares "real" snaps.

In candid images, the 24-year-old, from the US, stops working her angles and relaxes her body.

She also posts videos on TikTok which show her modelling clothes before and after she has eaten to demonstrate that there’s nothing wrong with being a little bloated after food.

In one Instagram snap, the brunette beauty wears the upside-down bikini trend with a white two piece.

She captioned the image: “Notice which pictures I’m smiling/happier in.

“Nothing like good old fashioned reality checks.

“Addressing and rejecting beauty standards is the first step!”

In another she wears a green SavagexFenty bra and high waited knickers.

In one shot she leans forward and lengthens her body with the bottoms pulled up which gives her a flat tummy.

While in the other she leans back, rolls down the briefs and gives the camera a beaming grin to show how different her figure can look with just a small change in pose.

In a third snap she wears another bikini with string sides.

Clara captioned the shot: One is not “better” than the other.

“This is my body seconds apart.

“Same lighting, bathing suit, and mirror. One is posed, and one is relaxed.

“I see so many before and after photos on social media that could just be a result of posing.

“Nourish your bodies and your minds today.”

Clara has posted numerous other shots in bikinis, gym gear and more which encourage her fans to embrace their gorgeous bodies.

In a TikTok video Clara said: “Good morning, this is outfits before and after I eat.

“I’m going to wear this to the beach and take some hot pics, but that does not mean I’m going to deprive my body of a happy belly.”

Clara also modelled a slinky black dress and commented: “I’m hot, but much more importantly, I’m happy.”

The model captioned the clip: “I love y’all you are much more than your beauty!”
