We're taught we should hide birthmarks, especially ones in highly visible places. But one awesome website proves they're something to show off. Paige Lauren Billiot, an actress with a port-wine stain on her left cheek, started Flawless Affect in hopes of redefining what we think of as flaws. Right now the series includes highly stylized photos of Billiot and her friends, but she plans to expand it to include a broad range of so-called flaws, from eczema to anxiety, to show these aren't things we should ever be ashamed of.
