Chrissy Teigen Vows to Never Photoshop Her Pictures Again

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.

… says Chrissy.

New respect for her.

I like the idea and I hope she keeps it up. She’s been growing on me…plus I never would have expected her to have stretch marks on her legs! Just goes to show you..

? I thought only pregnant women got them? I don’t understand how she has them there…

They can also happen through rapid weight gain or (much more likely in her case) by rapidly gaining height during puberty. Sometimes your bones grow so fast your skin can’t quite catch up and you get horizontal stretch marks like the ones she has.

Yep I got them too, since I was about 12, by that time I grew a lot in height, I actually have them on the exact same place as her

I have them on the sides of my upper bum and hip area, puberty…hips widened – I don’t love them, at all YET, a model posting theirs made me feel so much better about them actually

I love the name too- I’d never heard them termed that way, but it makes them sound cute and like just a little part instead of something to feel bad about.

She’s pretty cool. Despite the stretchmarks her legs are still only one quarter the thickness of mine, probably 😉

Guest

I love this. Nothing more I can say. Plus it makes me feel better about my little stretch marks.

Its so silly that we even need to make a statement on that the pics these women post is not how humans REALLY looks like. It´s just so sad that the internet has become this really destructive place where people worship celebs like Gods then expect them to look like Gods. Perfection is not smooth skin without stretch marks or thigh gap. But I do think it´s great that a model wants to change the trend, but In reality she´ll get to much crap for her “real” pics in the future, like “She´s getting fat, she has spots, is that… Read more »

She is awesome!! Good for her!!! I see models regularly and, yes most are beautiful and exotic creatures roaming the streets who do stand out for their beauty. Many are gorgeous freaks of nature but it goes to show u everyone has flaws. Who is to say what a “flaw” is anyways. My guy friends love “flaws” on women so embrace who u are because no one else is you.

Love the quote and the sentiment behind it. Not sure if I can endorse a side of nipples at the White House Correspondents Dinner. BTW can we get more looks from the WHCA??

I rnormally dislike her and she’s one of the biggest famewh., but I love that she posted this pic and it’s nice to see a non-posing genuine pic.

yeah,. she’s had a s—ty track record for opening her mouth and saying dumb things, glad she’s deciding to be more mature now, especially given her age.
