“My skin is natural from birth, and I don’t want my skin to become white like others,” said Sothy, who added that she never uses whitening cream because she likes her natural skin color.

Thanks to her natural darker skin and stylish fashion, many magazines and studios have asked her to model for them. Therefore, she lives up to the Khmer slogan: dark and pretty.

It is not always easy to choose the right style of dress for people with darker skin, but Sothy said it is easy to make herself pretty.

“I always look at the mirror after dressing up and feel good with my own style,” she said with a big smile.

Sothy’s favourite clothing colours are black, white and red. She usually wears white clothes.

“It looks good on me and also shows how my skin is.

To accompany her skin, she also chooses the right cut of clothes.

“My own fashion style is to have a sleeveless shirt with shorts or jeans and a short dress.”

Most of Sothy’s clothes are bought from clothes shop, and some from markets and online shops. The style may be simple, but it works elegantly for Sothy.

Furthermore, Sothy said that she always makes sure to get the right accessories. “I like to wear big earrings, flip-flops, and red nail polish.”

Her hair is curly and her makeup is minimal, which is a style rarely seen among young Cambodian girls.

It is a good thing to keep the original skin colour, especially the chocolate skin, because it is the true skin colour of most Khmers and, as Sothy proves, is very beautiful.
