Meet The 11-Year-Old Albino Twins Taking The Fashion World By Storm

Shot by photographer Vinicius Terranova, this series showcases the unique beauty of Albinism. The series is called Flores Raras and features twin sisters Lara and Mara from São Paulo, Brazil.

Though the girls are only 11, they've already begun to pick up momentum in the fashion world. And rather than treating their genetic condition as a flaw, the girls embrace their unique look.

“We feel albinism is pretty,” Lara says, “we love our hair, eye color and skin tone.”

The odds of a child being born with albinism is 1 in 17,000. But the chances that twins would both be born with albinism are even slimmer. That being said, these girls truly are "rare flowers". And the fashion world seems to agree.

Growing up like this was amazing, we love being different and are happy with our unique beauty.

“My point is to analyze how being uncommon is far from being negative,” writes Terranova of his photo series of the girls. “Actually, when you possess a different, therefore rare, trait this feature makes you more beautiful and special, never less. Besides its plea to the power of diversity, it represents the encounter with their sublime beauty.”
