Chrissy Teigen Shows Off Her Stripes
There’s no doubting this: Chrissy Teigen is kind of a big deal. She’s not just a model, nor is she just John Legend’s wife, she shuts down haters on Twitter, she isn’t shy about her love for food, but most importantly, she’s very big on showing she’s a real person like all of us. Sometime’s she doesn’t feel too great about her body, and as she shows us from time to time, she too has stretch marks.
After a few glasses of wine, Chrissy took to Twitter to share this photo of her thigh, captioned “Whatevs.” This photo shook Twitter, spurring people to Tweet Chrissy and tell her that they appreciate her, and telling her how real she is. She made many women across the internet relate to the supermodel mom, kind of telling everyone, “I’m not as perfect as you think. I have flaws too.” Some women even tweeted in response to Teigen, showing off their stretch marks as well.
As much as Teigen appreciated this, she took the time to spell out why she tweeted the picture. "I do not post stretchies for the praise," she explained. "I post it because the wine also I like the pattern and they're so soft." Chrissy’s very relaxed approach in the public eye has made women everywhere not only love Chrissy but love themselves and their own bodies. Once again, being as real as she is, she shared that she just hated seeing how everything was airbrushed, all the time. "I have those apps, the Facetune and Photoshopping ones, and I just didn't feel like doing it anymore—and I'm never doing it again, because I think we forgot what normal people look like now,"
Well, thank you Chrissy for showing us it’s okay to love and show off your stretch marks! Keep on sharing your stripes!
