We're pretty sure that when you're Chrissy Teigen, you face a cornucopia of compliments every single day. Compliments for being smart, funny, pretty (du-uh), talented, inspiring...
But we'd like to compliment Ms. Teigen on something else — on her bravery to stand for what she believes in and do it in such a boss manner that it's hard not to gasp in awe.
Despite being paid to look flawless on runways, ads and magazine covers, Teigen is an avid promoter of positive body image and doesn't shy away from sharing her own insecurities. Back in April, she stunned the world by posting a revealing image of her stretch marks on Instagram, which inspired a huge wave of positivity among women struggling to embrace their bodies.
Teigen captioned the image "Bruises from bumping kitchen drawer handles for a week. Stretchies say hi!"
But being the empowered woman that she is, Teigen doesn't confine herself to fighting just for stretch mark acceptance. In fact, she's known for her consistent support for the #FreeTheNipple movement and ingenious trolling of Instagram's nudity policies.
