Jazz at London Fashion Week
In an effort to speak up about the harsh reality of social media, model Jazz Egger started the #truthbehindthisshot, a hashtag aimed at exposing the truth behind those seemingly flawless photos on Instagram.
Using her own posts as examples, the London-based model shared several snaps of herself and wrote honest and relatable captions like, "I spent an hour thinking about whether I should post this or not . . . " Jazz also shared how her photos were edited and the not-so-glamorous side of being a model (she was once told to lose weight). These situations are often not portrayed in a model's happy BTS snaps, but Jazz is bringing them to light.
Though the #truthbehindthisshot tag only has a few photos since Jazz's initial post, we know it's only a matter of time before it catches on and other users speak up about the need to appear perfect on social platforms. If there's anything Jazz has taught us, it's that despite all the edits you can make to a photo, IRL no one is perfect.
