These stars dared to get real and became our heroes.
1. Brooklyn Decker
Blonde bombshell Brooklyn Decker is always on the go. It’s no wonder she opted to skip the makeup job for her flight back home to LAX. Ms. Decker, don’t change a thing!
2. Barbie Ferreira
Luscious beauty Barbie Ferreira is famous for blasting unrealistic plus-size modeling standards. The model has posted some glorious, celebratory photos of her sexy belly, stretch marks and all. Those pics got some negative reviews, but we have the feeling Barbie is too busy having fun to care.
3. Jessica Simpson
Some women seem to have the easiest pregnancies, with no morning sickness, no mood swings, only gaining 18 pounds, etc. The glamorous Jessica Simpson shared many not-so-glam pictures from her pregnancy, including this picture of her poor, swollen, pregnant foot for which we love her. Give this lady a foot massage!
Bootylicious babe Lizzo shamelessly shares her love for her body every day. We are in lust with this picture the songstress posted of herself. They broke the mold when they made this Venus.
5. Ashley Graham
Gorgeous and body-positive Ashley Graham is not ashamed at all to show off her cellulite. The super model is known for sagely saying “Thick thighs save lives.” While just about all women have cellulite, most of us hate it. Ms. Graham dares to love the skin she’s in. Ashley, we salute you!
6. Jameela Jamil
Jameela Jamil is stunning, brilliant, hilarious and a personal favorite of ours. We didn’t think she could be wonderful-er, until she dared us to bare our cellulite with pride by posting an untouched picture of her own deliciously dimpled thighs. The Good Place star wrote “All girls have cellulite. Often even newborn babies have it. It’s totally normal, and not a failure of any kind. Celebrities, adverts and magazines have GOT to stop editing this stuff out.”
7. Danielle Brooks
When Danielle Brooks posted this untouched swimsuit photo of herself, she included the caption “”Why Photoshop when you this P•H•A•T.” (PHAT is Pretty Hot And Tempting). The Orange is the New Black star can flaunt those flawless curves any time!
8. Hillary Duff
Singer, actress and mom Hillary Duff literally mooned her body shamers! She posted this picture of her booty, cellulite and all. In her caption she wrote “Since websites and magazines love to share ‘celeb flaws’ – well, I have them…You guys (you know who you are!) already know how to ruin a good time and now you are body shamers as well. #kissmyass.” We think those “flaws” are fabulous.
9. Jenny McCarthy
Jenny McCarthy boldly showed her baby bump at over 200 pounds. The former Playmate told the Chicago Splash “I’m not fat, I’m pregnant. OK fine, I’m fat and pregnant!” If you ask us, that heroic belly is nothing less than beautiful.
10. Mila Kunis
When this untouched photo of Mila Kunis went viral, she was referred to as a “makeup beauty”; women who only look beautiful with makeup on. Yikes! We see a gorgeous and very busy woman who let her natural beauty shine through.
Madonna works hard! Behind the scenes, the Queen of Pop likes to live simply, dress casually and forgo the makeup. We may be living in a material world, but this woman has a natural glow.
12. Serena Williams
Badass tennis icon Serena Williams appeared practically nude on the cover of Harpers Bazaar Magazine, completely raw and untouched. She’s a beast! Note the scar up one leg, a badge of honor and occupational hazard of being a legend. When we grow up, we want to be like her.
13. Sarah Hyland
Stunning Sarah Hyland hates to be torn away from work. The Modern Family Star recently went public about having kidney dysplasia, a condition caused by under-developed kidneys at birth and is marked by painful cysts. Following receiving a kidney transplant, she posted this selfie from the hospital. Two words come to mind; naked and strength.
14. Chelsea Handler
Talk show host and comedienne Chelsea Handler bared all on Instagram despite some negative comments regarding her physique. Whether her objective was humor or activism, this 42-year-old babe made an empowering statement for female nudity. We think she’s hot!
15. Tina Fey
When Tina Fey was 5, her face was slashed by a stranger. The attack left her with a long, permanent, unmistakable scar down one cheek. That doesn’t stop the multi-talented actress, comedienne, writer, producer, playwright and mom from going makeup-free to pick up her mini-me. Now, that’s the example we want to follow!
16. Chrissy Teigen
Stunning model and mom Chrissy Teigen won our hearts when she posted this picture of her stretch mark riddled inner thighs. “I think we forgot what normal people look like now,” the beauty said to E!. Shout out to Chrissy and her stretch marks!
17. Priyanka Chopra
A picture of actress Priyanka Chopra incited a riot on social media recently over whether the photographer had airbrushed her…armpits?? We think this is more demonstrative of the empty-headedness of people, but the beautiful Baywatch star retaliated in the smoothest of fashions. She posted a selfie to Twitter clearly showing her armpits with the caption Here’s another “pit-stopping” picture to add to the debate. #WillTheRealArmpitPleaseStandUp #nofilter #armpitdiaries” Well, we don’t think there’s a single thing that needs to be added to that!
Zendaya was furious when a magazine called her “fat” and retouched a photo to make her appear thinner. The singer called out the magazine and posted the un-touched photo herself. Honestly? We barely notice the difference!
A sports journalist recently wrote a blog with the title ‘Is Rihanna going to make being fat the hot new trend?” Swine! Rihanna is gorgeous, successful, voice of an angel. She is doing perfectly fine without the support of these pigs. The singing superstar looked decadent at Kadooment Day in her best bejeweled crop over yet. Perhaps they meant to write “PHAT”?
20. Kourtney Kardashian
The lovely and curvaceous Kourtney Kardashian showed off her stretch marks in solidarity with, well, all of us. Granted, you gotta look closely to see them. Hint: Look at the upper thigh.
Shakira is gorgeous without all the Hollywood glitz and glamour. When she shared this makeup-free selfie earlier this year with her messy hair bun and half down, we were inspired. Shakira, you can get real whenever, wherever you please!
Even if you're having a bad day, always remember, you have earned the right to feel sexy in the body you are in!
