Chrissy Teigen is a model who is known for her bikini body, gorgeous curves, and… stretch marks? The 29-year-old wife of John Legend got Instagram buzzing this week when she shared a leggy picture showing her cooking-related bruises and the stretch marks on her inner thighs.
“Bruises from bumping kitchen drawer handles for a week. Stretchies say hi!”, Chrissy captioned the snap. A pair of super-short denim cutoff shorts helped Chrissy proudly display her supposed flaws. Except they’re not flaws but unique identifying features that make her the well-loved model that she is.

She’s funny, she’s a fabulous cook, and she’s a gorgeous model who isn’t afraid to show her imperfections. She doesn’t try to portray a perfect persona, which, funnily enough, makes her perfect to us! Keep displaying those sexy stretch mark legs, Chrissy!

If someone who has to look perfect for a living can embrace her flaws, then we normal folks should be able to do so, too. There’s no reason to be afraid of these super-short cutoff denim shorts:
