There is a “fever for modelling” in Tehran right now, says a photographer who has been working in the field for 20 years, as the profession has become a “status marker” in a vanity-driven culture. And the look that’s in vogue among female models is far from what many would consider natural Iranian beauty.

    Why not call it the miss universe look? They are the prettiest.

    I don’t know the logic in calling this “porn star look”, because first off what is a porn star look? If I had to state a look was porn star like, I would say stripper heels and pouty lips.

    Iran , India , Pakistan are all obessed with plastic surgery, specifically nose jobs. They all want to look European . South Korea is another plastic surgery obessed nation, where double eyelid surgery to look European/Caucasoid is all the rage.

    Iranian society is fairly liberal. I’ve heard that even some of their religious policemen deliberately turn a blind eye to certain “haraam” activities like Islamic dress code violations and couples, giving just a verbal warning and moving on.
