Alek Wek on Lupita Nyong’o’s NAACP Image Awards acceptence speech:
“I was amazed and very humbled by Lupita’s words, and I am so proud and happy that her talent was deservedly recognised with her Oscar award.
When I was growing up, my mother taught me and my sisters to celebrate each other - there was no room in our household for negativity. She taught us to embrace each other and this was empowering for us. She also taught us the value of celebrating our differences.
When I first started modeling I realised I was very different from many of my colleagues, but I welcomed the opportunities my career in fashion offered me, and the support from many inspiring individuals in the fashion industry. And because of this I have always strived to use the platform I have in fashion, to champion the ideals of what is beautiful.
For me it always goes back to what my mother taught me and my sisters. That all women are beautiful and we should embrace each other. True beauty is born through our actions and aspirations and in the kindness we offer to others. Beauty should not be culturally relevant, it should be universal.”

Couple who shades together stay together
ruins your lungs
dries out all your tears
leaves you lying awake at 4 in the morning
wishing you weren’t alive.
Right after this moment in the film. The howling wind stops. The snowflakes seem to freeze in time. It is like Elsa’s heart has stopped beating. That scene really symbolized what someone can feel like after hearing devastating news. Time freezes. Everything seems to stop.
I was really amazed by how deep this movie can be. Many unspoken moments and things to understand and piece together after seeing it.
