Chrissy Teigen recently posted online a photo without filters or Photoshop to show us that even models don’t look like in the flawless magazine-ready images. Her caption:
Bruises from bumping kitchen drawer handles for a week. Stretchies say hi!
The model continued to explain why she chose to post the image in a talk-show last week:
I actually am working on a cookbook and I was bumping around in the kitchen and the door handle would just nick me every single time. And I was actually just taking a picture of the bruises and then I saw the stretch marks in there.
And 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 forget what normal people look like now. The standard is so ridiculous. I mean, people are nip-tucking [their pictures].
It’s gotten to a point where they’re not smoothing their skin anymore. They are actually changing the shape of their body and everybody else – nobody can compare to that when you’re fixing yourself so much. It’s so unfair. It started with Botox and everything, of course, but now it’s just grown into this Photoshop phenomenon and I’ve seen these women in person, they are not like that. Please know that. I’ve shot in barely anything with them and it’s just amazing what people do to tweak themselves.
