Even supermodels get stretch marks!
Chrissy Teigen posted a selfie revealing the stretch marks on her thighs, proving that she's human. "Bruises from bumping kitchen drawer handles for a week," she wrote on Monday. "Stretchies say hi!"

Needless to say, her nearly two million Instagram followers started commenting on the 29-year-old supermodel's candid image. "Love it! Real women have stretch marks #respect," one follower wrote.
Another commenter shared the sentiment, adding: "Wow thank you for this, you've have boosted my self-esteem Love you @chrissyteigen #SouthAfrica."
Teigen seems to have no shame when it comes to baring all of her body, marks and all. Back in February, she shared a topless shot of her self with the caption: "Tried to think of something witty but basically just painting myself in makeup and wearing granny panties."

In January, she exposed her dry skin (which she scratched the message "Help"), writing: "My legs are assholes?"

Teigen has also been candid about how she was fired from a Forever 21 modeling job for not being thin enough. "I showed up on set and they asked me if they could take a photo," she told DuJour magazine this past summer. "And they shoot that photo off to my agency, who then calls me as I'm sitting in the make-up chair, and they say, 'You need to leave right now. They just said that you are fat and you need to get your measurements taken."
