In a touching piece she penned for allure, Ruby Rose discussed her personal definition of beauty.
She talked about growing up and not fitting into social constructs, particularly gender rules, and experimenting with fashion, hair, and makeup. But still, Ruby says inner beauty is where it's at. "It sounds cliché, but you should just see beauty within yourself. You see it when you’re happiest and healthiest. Then it radiates outward. I learned to just embrace who I am as a person and to do what makes me feel the most comfortable," she wrote.
She also discussed embracing her gender fluidity, and praised beauty companies for not just marketing to women anymore. Ruby explained, "Sometimes I wake up and I feel more boyish and masculine, and that’s what makes me feel the most beautiful and the most confident on that particular day. But the next day, I might wake up feeling more glamorous and more feminine. I’ll want to wear high heels and a dress."
