Chrissy Teigen Exposes Stretch Marks, Is Still Perfect

Woof Now or Forever Hold Your Peace
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen Wed Their Dogs

All hail Chrissy Teigen.

When the swimsuit model isn’t busy gracing the pages of Sports Illustrated with her perfect bikini-bod, she’s in the kitchen whipping up some killer-looking grub. On Monday, the 29-year-old shared a photo exposing bruises she’d gotten in the process of clumsily cooking. In the top-down pic, Teigen bares her inner thighs, where black and blue marks lie side-by-side to a group of stretch marks.

She wrote, “Bruises from bumping kitchen drawer handles for a week. Stretchies say hi!”

Whether or not it was intentional, Mrs. John Legend has become an instant inspiration to women across the globe.

“Authentic women’s empowerment right here! Thank you for being a true voice @chrissyteigen #confidence#beauty #real,” one Instagram user wrote.

“Just made yourself ten times more gorgeous,” wrote another.

This isn’t the first time Teigen has been brutally honest about body image. About a month ago, she shared a photo where her girls were ever so slightly busting out of her dress.

She wrote, ” The only positive of periods.”

Then there was also that time when Teigen admitted to wearing granny panties:

It’s rare for celebrities to proudly display their flaws, but it’s not out of character for our hero to post raw, down-to-earth footage to remind the rest of us that we are all one in the same.  For that, we thank you.
