5 celebrities that hit back at beauty ideals this summer

Empowered AF.

19 Aug 2019

Summer 2019: the year celebrities finally proved to us why you don't need to waste your holiday trying to nail the picture-perfect Instagram with killer abs and a Kim K booty, or rally up the glam squad to secure *that* effortless selfie by the beach (we've all been there).

In a society that is on a never ending quest for perfection, it's easy to follow the herd and mask our insecurities with a barrage of snapchat filters. But the A-list set are here to put an end to this detrimental mindset. From Sam Smith proudly rocking his pedi, to Stacey Solomon's heartwarming post celebrating her imperfections, this is the year celebrities said adios to beauty standards.

Chrissy Teigan

Suns out, bums out! With big bums and washboard abs being all the rage, Chrissy Teigan took to Instagram to remind the world why all booties matter regardless of their size, shape and cellulite. With the caption: "#Tinybootyclub", Chrissy showed off her perfectly small peach in a bikini snap alongside her dog...and this is why Chrissy continues to be one of the greatest humans on earth.

Denise Bidot

Face Tune Who? Denise Bidot gave the world a healthy reminder why we can forget about detox Monday and revel in taco Tuesdays in an empowering snap of her in a paddling pool. "Here’s to freeing up the rolls, stretch marks and chubby booties for the remainder of the summer and beyond!" she wrote. Cheers to that!

Oh you thought it’d be over here hiding? I don’t think so. Here’s to freeing up the rolls, stretch marks and chubby booties for the remainder of the summer and beyond! #nowrongway

Jorja Smith

Singer and Dior makeup ambassador Jorja Smith went au naturale as she gave us a sneak peek at her curls. As a woman who is notorious for super sleek hair, we're feeling seriously inspired to chuck out our straighteners and embrace the natural hair.

Stacey Solomon

Cellulite is Cellu-alrite! While most women are anxious to show off their post baby body, Loose Women star Stacey Solomon was embracing hers in all its glory. ‘I love my body. Every bit of it. Even the bits that society says shouldn’t be there. Because EVERY bit of it came together to make him. And Zachary. And Leighton. cellulite is beautiful, back bumps add character and tummy ledges are great for resting a baby on." This is the kind of energy we should be channeling at the beach.
