Chrissy Teigen isn’t afraid to be herself.
On Monday, the 35-year-old star took to Instagram to share an unflattering picture of herself. She used the caption to debate the significance of self-love.
“I really think you guys are too conditioned to seeing perfect photos all day because so many of my comments on any given photo are ‘why would she post this’ or ‘i love you girl but this is not flattering’, to which I say, who cares?? a lot of the time, makeup artists and hair stylists will ask if photos are good enough to post and my reply is always the same: I honestly don’t care. post whatever. I dunno. I just don’t care about curating my Instagram to be perfection. Im a mess. I’m chaotic and this shall always reflect that, thank u!! Love, a Sagittarius,” Teigen wrote.
Celeb buddies and followers praised the star for her transparency.
“I see u sag sis,” Vanessa Hudgens stated.
“Yasssss Queen thank you for normalizing not being perfect because no one is!” a fan wrote.
“YES!!!!! Honestly why I love you so much. Unapologetically you,” somebody added.
“I love that you are honest about yourself and perfection is over rated… I really enjoy all your photo’s… Just continue being you…” a consumer continued.
In line with Teigen, her self-love journey has been a very long time coming. Throughout an interview with Glamour UK final 12 months, she opened up about how her modeling profession affected her vanity.
“That was my entire career, doing weigh-ins. With model agencies, it was normal to get measured too, and I did it myself mainly, so when you had direct bookings without castings, [the clients] knew what they were getting. There were jobs I would turn up to and they would say my measurements were off and it was the worst feeling to be kicked off the job,” she recalled.
Teigen added that after ending her modeling profession, she was in a position to be kinder to her physique. Although it took her some work to get used to her new regular weight after giving start to youngsters Luna and Miles, whom she shares together with her husband John Legend.
“I do have a look at [my body] within the bathe and assume, ‘Arghhh, these youngsters,'” she admitted. But I don’t take the aesthetics so seriously now. It’s very fulfilling not having that pressure of putting on a swimsuit and looking good for a magazine while running around a beach, which I did when I was modeling. I don’t feel like my body is where I’m going to be shitty to myself, either. I’m already thinking enough things I am mad at myself about, I can’t add my body into it.”
