Izabella Zaydenberg. Whether you choose to let your body hair run wild and free or prefer to be as slick as a dolphin, it's your choice — and you look totally flawless, regardless. And while Paris Jackson has made headlines this summer for her body hairshe isn't the first celebrity to let her leg and armpit hair hang out in the world.
She has joined the growing number of celebrities who have stopped shaving under their arms - and don't care who knows it. The year-old Charlie's Angels star made her fashion statement at a New York catwalk event featuring designer Marc Jacobs. With his penchant for dressing models in combat boots and army-style jackets, Jacobs is famed for his grunge-inspired look - and Drew certainly fitted in.
From Britney Spears and Beyonce shock horrorto Julia Roberts and Halle Berry, someone needs to remind these celebs there's cameras everywhere. We couldn't quite believe it when Madonna flaunted what appeared to be a very hairy armpit on Instagram. And she's not the only celebrity to show off her very own tuft of fluff for the world to see - the difference being, she actually intended for people to see it.
Just this week, the Internet went berserk over a sweet throwback family photo posted by Leonardo DiCaprio that revealed his mother—gasp! However, I never really understood just how intensely people feel about the matter until I let my own grow out. For starters, my armpits and I have always had a mercurial relationship.

By now, one would think that a woman would be able to do whatever she likes with her body sans the public commentary. But ask about a woman with armpit hair and they'd surely say that isn't the case. From Miley Cyrus and Madonna to Julia Roberts and Penelope Cruz, more and more female celebs have been rocking long armpit hair lately.
Can you remember the first time you were informed you were doing your body wrong? I was 13, lying in the grass in the park with another girl, arms behind my head, eyes closed. She sat up, pointed at my armpits, and frowned.

The choice of whether or not to shave and conversations about the "right" way to maintain our body hair always seem to be areas of tension, specifically concerning feminine folks. While people who don't shave their armpits are often perceived as trend-chasing humans, angry feminists, or masculine individuals, hair maintenance habits go deeper than that. Although societal expectations say otherwise, it is every person's right to choose how they care for their body.
But while your body is trying to live its best life, that pesky society is out there trying its best to tear it down with an onslaught of beauty standards with the apparent rule that all women must be per cent WAXED. But nuh uh, honey. Almost one in four young women have stopped shaving their armpits according to recent research.
