Stretch marks and cellulite are the two things most women are forced to deal with and for many celebrity women, embracing the beautiful imperfections is the best way.
In the latest issue of i-D magazine, Paris Jackson discussed loving her body regardless of society standards. “I’m not symmetrical, I’m not a size zero, I eat hella burgers and endless amounts of pizza,” she said.
The late Michael Jackson’s daughter continued, “I can’t fit into a runway sample size of designer clothes, I have scars and stretch marks and acne and I have cellulite. I’m human. Not a dress-up doll. The idea that we all have to fit one idea of beauty is outrageous and ridiculous because ‘perfection’ is just an opinion.”
The 19-year-old added, “Beauty is not measured by numbers, or symmetry, or shapes, or sizes, or colours, or anything like that. Beauty, true beauty, should be measured by the soul, the character, integrity, intentions and mindset of a person, what comes out of their mouth. How they behave. Their heart.”
Jackson is not the only Hollywood star who has spoken out about loving their stretch marks. Here are four other beauties who have flaunted their scars and “imperfections.”
Karrueche Tran: In June 2014, Chris Brown’s ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, shared a photo of her backside on Insagram, writing: “About a week ago I posted a pic of a butt with stretch marks on it. The butt wasn’t mine. I was agreeing with the pic in reference to the stretch marks. The owner seemed to be upset that I posted the pic so I’ve decided to go ahead and post mine. These are my tiger marks.”
Chrissy Teigen: In August 2016, supermodel Chrissy Teigen showed off her stretch marks on her thigh via Snapchat, writing: “Lol, my thighs have tributaries.”
She also showed off her inner thigh marks back in April 2o15. The mother of one posted an image of her bruised thighs, which also just so happened to showcase her marks. “Bruises from bumping kitchen drawer handles for a week. Stretchies say hi,” she wrote.
Amber Rose: Back in April 2017, model Amber Rose published a full video showing love to her cellulite and stretch marks.
Ashley Graham: In January 2017, plus sized model Ashley Graham showed an up close image of her cellulite and stretch marks while on vacation in the Philippines. “I workout. I do my best to eat well. I love the skin I’m in. And I’m not ashamed of a few lumps, bumps or cellulite.. and you shouldn’t be either,” she wrote.
