Chrissy Teigen Flaunts Stretch Marks In New Instagram Selfie & Draws Praise From Fans


Baring all: Chrissy Teigen displayed her stretch marks for all to see with this Instagram snap on Monday - much to the delight of her followers

29-year-old Sports Illustrated star, Chrissy Teigen, who is known for her refreshingly down-to-earth and straight-talking attitude, delighted her fans with one of her typically brutally honest Instagram posts on Monday by proudly displaying a group of stretch marks on her inner thighs and tagged the photo:

‘Bruises from bumping kitchen drawer handles for a week. Stretchies say hi!’

Inspiring: The brunette beauty - pictured with husband John Legend on April 6 - has long been an advocate for positive self-image

Even with her super svelte physique Chrissy showed that she is not immune to the dreaded lines, and her ballsy approach garnered much praise from her 1.9 million followers. Some of the positive comments included:

‘Love it! Real women have stretch marks #respect’ from user¬†saraelizabef.

Another follower, emmalittle5, commented:

‘I have so much respect for you! I have stretchies too and I appreciate someone being real about them and acknowledging them thanks’

User hautecouture_martina responded simply:

‘You are too cool.’

Although the markings are a natural and common occurrence, it’s rare to see a celebrity display their flaws so proudly and the move no doubt gained the outspoken John Legend’s wife a few more fans in the process.

What a rare display of self-confidence! #legend #beingyourself
