Remember this smokin’ hot Calvin Klein ad featuring Kendall Jenner?
Well, lawyer and single mom who is proud of her flaws—specifically her stretch marks—decided to recreate it and show the world that not everyone wants to or has to be Kendall Jenner thin.
“Hello body, I haven’t appreciated you much lately. I haven’t acknowledged your beauty and your marvelous wonder. I am proud of you. For all that you have endured. For all that you have overcome, and for continuing to keep me strong & alive. I love you. And just like any other body you are worthy of appreciation, flaws and all.”
Meet Branda De Rouen, a blogger who aims to promote a “Positive Space for Positive People.” Just check out her Instagram account (@_ohbrenda_) and you will see countless words of encouragement for ladies to be confident and proud of what they have been given. "I'll never look like Kendall and that's okay. I look like me and I'm just as sexy. So I decided to change the narrative with darker skin and a not-so-perfect body," she told Glamour. From Barbie’s new body shapes, to supermoms who couldn’t care less about wearing Spanx, it’s nice to know that there are people in this world who know that fashion is for all. That the Kendalls of the world are not the only ones who can wear Calvin Kleins, but more importantly, health and happiness will always trump being thin and sexy.
Something to think about before you start starving yourself for that upcoming beach trip.
