IMPERFECT

Very Inclusive, Not Really Exclusive
Glamour girl is an international portal of RAW realities, UNEDITED content, and IMPERFECT beauty conveyed through the eyes of authentic women leading in their respective industries from designers to writers to muses.
Each issue brings you behind the curtain and into the minds of each woman raising the bar beyond fetishized facades and falsified standards of beauty.
Our latest BOOK 6 is dedicated to the ART OF THE BODY : A BODY OF ART.

The body is a canvas that aspires to exist as a body of art — yearning towards an exchange of sacred information that yields an infinite exchange of creation. Each stroke, movement, and breath invites new life and energy that catapults its tertiary counterparts, the mind and soul, to achieve higher vibration and as a result, an acknowledgement, and expression, of our higher selves. As artists, this is the crux of motivation. This is the art of the body.

“...I think we’re moving into a time of more sensuality and a bit more thoughtfulness and bit more of a feminist perspective – a feminine gaze..”
(Brooke Candy)

When did you career start to include your mission for feminism? Was it always there?

My career started to include feminism from Day 1, which I think was in 2012. That was when I worked with Grimes and I put out my first three videos. Being a woman and being raised in a family with all brothers and being treated differently than them and seeing that they got a lot more than I did growing up was hard. They received a lot more attention, they got more material possessions. And as a woman, it’s innate within your DNA, it’s a cellular response… we’re all just kind of angry. So, it was very organic to be that feminist from the start which started a long time ago. I’m getting fucking old. Not really I’m still in my ‘20s but it just feels like… fuck!


You’ve spoken about your obsession with the concept of duality - can you elaborate?

I have a tiny obsession with duality but it’s more of a realization that without diving into the depths of our despair and darkness, we will never really understand what bliss is. Though I think we need to comprehend balance and duality is essentially balance. Without a darkness, you don’t have light. Duality is a human condition because we are given two choices, but I think we are given more than two choices. I think there’s a grey area we can exist in. Things don’t have to be dark or light. You obviously need one to discover the other but maybe there’s a like a third, like a neutral space and maybe that’s where we all need to be existing and that’s a way we can elevate consciousness on the planet and get us out of this fucking end-of-the-roman-empire-fucking-dark-age-Donald-Trump-piece-of-shit-no-culture-no-fucking-care-no-empathy-desentisized-fucked-up world.

“...I want to be able to show myself as I am, freely, without censorship. I want to show that there is nothing wrong with a naked woman”
(Margalida Maria Crespi)


Margalida Maria Crespi / 2018
from Glamour Girl Book 6
The Art of the Body

           

Getting to know MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI as a feminist and an activist through her show at the Anti Art Fair in London, among rising movers and shakers in the art and social revolution was, in a word, INTOXICATING.

As an UNABASHED SEXUALLY LIBERATED woman, she stands out as an INSPIRING and CONTROVERSIAL REVOLUTIONARY

in ways that rarely disrupt me at my core and thwart me into questioning my own beliefs and assumptions in a politically charged society that is constantly telling me to be ashamed of my sexuality.



Margalida Maria Crespi for Glamour Girl Magazine Book Six

A Spanish model and social activist, Margalida has been 86’d from Instagram countless times for her vocal ousting of the Terry Richardson of Spain - a photographer that has utilized (and exploited) his masculinity and industry success as a gateway towards masochistic, opportunist, and utterly pathetic attempts at luring young models into his power trips. Girls such as Margalida herself, who aspire to grow and excel in the same industry; one ripe with girls who patiently wait for the day that blow jobs will be nixed from the social resume of aspiring models seeking a professional career and a basic universal understanding of mutual respect. Ultimately, her numerous (and successful) attempts at bringing an ego-tripping narcissist to the forefront of our modern sexual dialogue has led her to starting the #metoo movement in Spain. A true renegade and feminist, she has sparked a conversation so desperately needing to happen globally.
On my quest to meet this Spanish Femme Fatale, I found myself in Peckham on a buzzing London evening. Two Uber trips and a questionable jaunt through the back alleyways of a windy road led me to a warehouse in the middle of South London.
I knew this was going to be interesting the second I found myself in front of a military-grade tank, angled at a perfect 45-degree angle at the entrance of the exhibition. Behind it stood a statuesque Glamazon wrapped in a booty-popping I Am Gia jumpsuit that brought the words “sex”, “power”, and “iconic jungle princess” into my descriptive peripherals. I was mesmerized. Girls of such confident and astute demeanors used to intimidate me. I now regard them as allies.
Margalida’s private room in the back of the gallery was where the rabbit hole found its finale. Her show “Dickstagram” was minimal, direct, and to the common passerby, uncomfortably and brutally honest. Poster-sized screenshots of her Instagram’s direct messages featuring her selection of unsolicited penises adorned three black walls, surrounding the incoming viewers with cocks galore. No one asked for these displays of fragile displays of naked masculinity, yet here they are: full, throbbing, and viscerally invasive.
Her exhibition evokes the sensationalization of sex as currency, and the provocation of aggressive and intrusive courtship. She brings to the surface an inevitable question: how are nipples more offensive than unsolicited dick pics that persistently slide into countless DM’s? And, why should a woman have to feel the necessity to even respond? (Real talk: when has a woman ever been turned on by an anonymous, or any for that matter, picture of a dick?)

Outside of her show, she smokes a cigarette and climbs onto the exhibition’s army tank display. A guard shouts at her. She waves him off and tells me to shoot. I snap a few quick pictures before the security guard marches towards us. We run off, laughing. Her flagrant opposition to the patriarchy is accented by a quick flash of her tantalizing breast in the public alleyway just outside the exhibition’s warehouse. I snap a few more photos. She stands powerful, confident, as looming eyeballs redirect their attention to her very public and laissez-faire display of anarchy. Many are intrigued, none seem perturbed. I was then reminded that I am in Europe after all.

Her perspective on the issues facing feminism remind me of my own experience in the industry, and the egotistical economy that has been cast upon the fashion industry as the new currency towards success. Supermodels of the 90s such as Cindy Crawford and Linda Evangelista have been replaced by body-dysmorphic Kardashians — and the entire ethos of “body as art” has been replaced, retouched, reduced, and completely restructured to fit an unattainable and glossy image of perfection in a broken society. Margalida, through her show and non-apologetic personality, instantly became the beacon of hope I had been seeking for so many years.
Her cutthroat confidence sliced through me in a way that inspired me to unleash my own femininity and sexuality; unhindered, and without regard to the archaic social norms of our grandparents’ era. It still stays with me, and I hope it will for a long time — I thank her for that.
The revolution of deconstructing the power that the patriarchy has held over a women’s agency over her own body has begun.
Margalida is here
to speed things up.



INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ What is the purpose and mission behind your show, “dickstagram”?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ The principle purpose is to denounce virtual sexual harassment. Nowadays, sexual harassment is such a big issue that women are facing around the world. I think it’s super important to discuss the different ways women are, or can be, sexually harassed — especially online. Digital harassment is real and it’s happening. I feel like we don’t talk about the problem enough. Also, it is very important for me to specifically bring up Instagram and how their platform doesn’t allow women to show our boobs or nipples, but allows countless men to send us dick pics. I want to show that Instagram is a reflection of our misogynist society, run by straight, white men who don’t care about the issues. I think they [Instagram] know exactly what is going on but they choose to do nothing. And that’s why I’m here. And in today’s society, if you’re a woman, you have to have proof for everything. Women can say, “I’ve been raped,” but society says, “Have you been raped? Or do you just want to destroy this guy’s life?” We always have to have proof in order to be trusted and for people to do something about it. And that’s why I’m choosing to show explicit images because, as a woman, I need to have proof that this is a real problem and it exists.
 

INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ What do you hope to accomplish as a result after the exhibition?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ My dream would be to have Instagram allow the full showcase of the female body. I want to be able to show myself as I am, freely, without censorship. I want to show that there is nothing wrong with a naked woman. I would also love to get an interview with Instagram, show them my project, then hopefully find a solution for what is going on. I want to stop sexual harassment and I want to start with the online world.


INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ Is it specifically Instagram that you are targeting, or do you want to expand to an all-encompassing social media revolution?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ My goal is to change the things that affect me in real life, and Instagram has been the most invasive. In the age of digital connection, Instagram is a reflection of our social society. If we want to change society, Instagram needs to change as well. We need to be equal, because in the end what happens with the terms and conditions of Instagram is nothing but a reflection of the terms and conditions of our own lives, our society. For example if I go running with my brother, or a male friend, they can take their shirts off and run freely, but I can’t. So it is a direct reflection of the real world. My ultimate goal is to change that. I focus on Instagram because it has allowed me to spread my word freely. I have been shut down three times now, two times because of nudity, and another time because of politics.


INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ What kind of politics? Can you elaborate?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ I brought to light an abusive photographer after my own experience with him. I essentially started the #metoo movement in Spain and the entire controversy went viral. If you google my name, there are about three pages worth of news surrounding the incident. I started accusing this photographer publicly and as it turned out, he was known by hundreds of women for the same reason; he was sexually abusive and all I heard after my testament was, “Me too, me too”, and so it went viral. One day I had 3,000 followers, and after three days I had over 100K followers because of the attention brought to me by exposing him. Everyone was talking about it. Within a week, my Instagram was gone, shut down. I had no nudity, and I had no warning. The people supporting this man denounced my page and tried to shut me down. His followers and supporters reported me enough to the point where I was the perpetrator, and I was erased for it. He received no consequences.
 

INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ Reading about the incident myself, I know there were a few girls that tried to bring him down without any success. What specifically about you brought the attention to the mass media?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ He knows me personally, and I know a lot of the same people he knows in Madrid. Ultimately, he knew he couldn’t go against me. I was more powerful than him. A few girls tried a few months ago, but as far as I know, he sent a bunch of his friends to threaten them and to tell them off. These girls stopped but the second I got involved, it became personal. He knew I was stronger and that he couldn’t go against me because I knew more people in Spain that could tarnish his name. I had more resources, and he was scared.


INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ Have you always wanted to be an activist, or did that come about from being a feminist?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ When I started digging deeper into feminism, I realized I have always been a fighter for everything I believe in. The unfair injustices of this world have always resonated with me. Being a feminist means I now stand for doing good for all people, not just women. People who feel like they can’t speak up. I am going to fight until the end. To me, this goes beyond being a feminist. There are so many ways to help the oppressed. If you are a feminist, you are already surrounded by a bubble of people that think the same way and for me that wasn’t enough, I want to reach beyond that and create a deeper change in the world. I can see something that is not fair and do nothing but I will always go ahead and do more. I can’t just sit here and help myself. I need to do more.


INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ You live in New York and you are born in Spain — what’s been your experience with both places? Does one charge you or inspire you more than the other?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ New York definitely. It inspires me so much. In one year of living in New York, I have grown more than I would ever have in Spain. As far as racism and feminism goes, I have pushed further in New York than in Spain for sure. It is very inspiring to me how free people are in New York people and how they don’t care about judgements. Everyone is much more self-aware. People are more into art and expression and activism. People fighting for causes they believe in is inspiring to me. I think Spain is a few steps back from the awareness of the global world. Religion still has a lot of power there, which makes the culture more conservative. It’s just different. There are, of course, amazing people in Spain as well but for me, the people who do proactive things are still a minority. People there do not feel like they can speak out as much in Spain. There is still much to be learned.


INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ When people, primarily Americans, think of Spain or Europe in general, they see it as a place to be free or sexually liberated, so it’s interesting that you say that. Do you feel like you, as a sexual person, is more free in New York?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ America is very interesting and contradictory. For example, you can be topless in New York but you go to the beach and you can’t be even partially naked, which is really crazy to me. My dad has been a nudist his whole life and that’s where my fearlessness with being naked comes from; I have no inhibitions. My dad’s favorite beach is au natural and very nude. Spain is very open-minded. But in New York, there is still a binary culture. There are some amazing aspects to being an American but at the same time, it is a very gender-exclusive place.
 

INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ What drew you to New York initially?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ I went to work as a model during New York Fashion Week three years ago to do a runway show and I just stayed. I still love it. I don’t model anymore but I stayed for the culture. Modeling wasn’t for me. There is way too much pressure on women to be a certain shape and size. Currently, there is much more sexual freedom which has created more diversity and acceptance within the industry and I love that. Every body, every type of culture and every race is becoming accepted. This is something that Spain needs to learn. They still have this idea that a woman needs to be a certain size in order it make it in the industry and I don’t agree with that. 


INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ Do you think you will go back to Spain

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ Eventually, but I still have lots of work to do here.


INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ As far as your personal life goes, how do you now approach dating and courting and the whole idea of getting to know someone romantically? Has that changed since you’ve become more of a sexual activist?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ Absolutely. I think now that I am more aware of my path and the ones I will not cross for other people. For example, I will never be with someone that will not accept me for who I am. With my ex-boyfriend, I felt the need to shave. I don’t shave, and with him I felt limited in my freedom. I need to be with someone that accepts me for me and respect what I stand for. Dating for me has been about the same, except now I am more aware of the red flags. My level of self-awareness has gone up dramatically. 


INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ What are your thoughts on dating in the digital age? Do you utilize social apps like Tinder on the regular or do you prefer classic courtship and meeting someone in person?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ I like using Tinder but I prefer to meet people in person. For the short term, definitely Tinder, but I much prefer to meet people in person. I love people, I love interacting with people face to face… see how they talk, their body language, nuances you can’t capture from a digital interaction. I am ultimately an extrovert. But even with dating apps that don’t let you send photos, it’s tough to swim through the bullshit. I heard a girl yesterday talking about dating apps and how she exchanged numbers with a guy on Tinder and he immediately started sending her pictures of his dick without a single introduction. It’s like wow, amazing, it’s your dick. Good job [laughs]. 


INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ What kind of feedback has your show received from men?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ Most were shocked, a few were grossed out. Guys don’t want to see dicks. A few even apologized to me. A few thanked me for what I have done. A few laughed. I think it’s super important for men to see this because if you don’t, you would never believe it otherwise. 


INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ What does being a feminist mean to you on a grander scale? Is it about being sexually open or is it more about curating a change globally? Is it possible for everyone to be a feminist?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ I think everybody could be a feminist and everybody should be a feminist. For me, being a feminist as a woman is about realizing the world is still fucked up for us. We are not on the same level as men. And if men were to realize the problem and the power they have, it’s the same as racism. As a white woman, for example, I recognize my privilege but I also use that to help others. And as a feminist, I wholeheartedly believe in the freedom of women. My belief is if you’re not hurting anybody, you should be free to do what you want. I truly believe in not just the equality of women, but of all people. 


INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ Why do you think women have been oppressed for so long? Do you think men are afraid of us? Or have men always had this power trip and they want to show it off with their dicks?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ That’s a good question… I truly do not know. I don’t know where this shit came from. What makes sense to me is the origin of humans and how men have always been the hunters and gatherers. Women were pushed into a reality of being secondary to that survival even though we are the givers of life. Men realized that they could take advantage of this power and that’s where we are today. They still think they have a hold over us. 


INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ You just published a book in congruence with your exhibition. What led you to feeling like you needed to take your exhibition beyond a showcase and into a permanent format?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ The book is the proof of my show. Even if I lose everything, I will still have the book to prove my mission and what I stand for. The book is something that everybody can hold and can say, “That was real”, and over the years will survive this moment in time. 


INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ Where can it be purchased?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ Through my e-mail because at the moment I do not have a website. I am fighting for the cause outside of the internet. You can e-mail me for a copy at mmmargalida@gmail.com.


INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ Do you have any advice for the sexually repressed? Any words of wisdom for those seeking to be on your level of sexual freedom, women or men?
MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ You have to lose the fear of the unknown. Discover yourself; what you like, what you don’t like and just go for it. And read, read everything you can. Reading helped me discover so much about myself sexually — books, blogs, talk to people, go to places where there are people that inspire you. Go outside your comfort zone. Also, most importantly, don’t be afraid to speak up. We all have a voice and we all have our own preferences. Don’t be afraid of yourself and your body and what you like and what feels good. In the end, it’s all about joy and pleasure. Choose pleasure. Why repress yourself and your pleasure because of what society says? It’s a waste of a life to do that. 


INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ Why do you think people are afraid of pleasure?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ First, it has a lot to do with what we have been taught. Second, I don’t think it’s about refusing pleasure, but I think it’s about the fear of finding that pleasure. I like that, but I am told it’s bad. I know I will be judged” or, “My partner will not understand me for this”, but if we don’t talk about what we like and don’t like or what feels good and what doesn’t, we will never know. Dialogue is so important.


INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ Do you think the media has a part in that?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ Definitely. We can’t have pleasure, we can’t enjoy sex. We’ve never owned our own sexuality or pleasure freedom. Pleasure, has always reserved for men. Media has an impact on our preferences. They see a need in our brains and then they wait for us to go and fill that need. Same with any topic. Same with pleasure.


INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ When you were growing up, were you taught to be on the straight and narrow? Were you given definitions of what pleasure and sex should look and feel like, or were you always trying to challenge the status quo?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __ I was always trying to challenge it. I have always been a super open-minded person and I have never and will never judge anybody for their own individual preferences. It was never an issue for me, even if it was an issue for everyone older than me. I was always true to myself and my beliefs.


INES KOVACEVIC GILL __ You previously said that you grew up in a town that didn’t identify with your values — how has that shaped you as a person?

MARGALIDA MARIA CRESPI __  It was always more about me and my beliefs regardless of my environment. As I’ve said, I have always been a fighter and anything that as tried to hinder me in any way, I will push against it even more. There always has to be a reason as to why something is forbidden and I want to know why. People have tried to make me feel bad or like a weirdo for the way I think and act, but in the end, that’s something that I realize comes from growing up in a conservative town with values that I am now able to fight in a city like New York. Small town mentalities have bothered me but I have always fought the ideologies of my upbringing. For me, the “weirdos” are the ones who can’t think beyond their immediate environment. Not in a bad way necessarily, but if you’re going to call me strange for being myself and being true to my beliefs, you should reevaluate your own values. People need to find their own place in this world and I am constantly trying to do that and I hope others can do the same.
