But these are no ordinary girls: Lara and Mara Bawar both have albinism, where skin and hair have no pigment.

Both girls, born in Sao Paolo to parents from Guinea-Bissau in Africa, celebrate their beauty and differences with the help of Swiss photographer Vinicius Terranova.

Vinicius photographed them as a personal project, but the arresting images of the two went viral, attracting industry attention. Now Lara and Mara have modeled for brands like Nike.

Beyond their striking appearance, their confidence and comfort in themselves is inspiring.

“We feel albinism is pretty, we love our hair, eye colour and skin tone,” Lara told Brazilian media.
