In a world full of filters and fillers, Stacey Solomon just became an example of ‘imperfection is beautiful’. The singer just posted unedited photos of herself in a bikini!
The former X-Factor winner shared her raw bikini photos taken in a photoshoot with CelebritySecretsMag. The photos show two different pictures, exhibiting the impact photoshop can have in morphing images.
She said in her post, “This is how scary airbrushing can be… just remember when you’re looking at someone’s post or in a mag or poster you might not be looking at real life images!”
Talking about how dangerous these ‘airbrushed’ perfect figured woman pictures can be, she added, “Highlighting how dangerous this kind of body morphing is and why all bodies should I’ll be celebrated no matter what shape or size!”
“I look better un-airbrushed in my opinion and love my natural lumps and bumps,” Stacey added.
By doing this, Solomon touched on a very serious topic which is often ignored: how dangerous image tickery can be!
She told Celebrity Secret’s Magazine, “Children are being robbed of their childhood because they’re under pressure to look a certain way.”
She was greatly supported by her fans and even by several celebrities, including Lucy Meck.
Lucy, actress from The Only Way Is Essex, talked about Stacey’s beautiful initiative by posting her picture on Instagram. She captioned it, saying, “u legend!!! Let’s face it we don’t go out on a Friday night a chose the worst selfie to post on our social media platforms.”
The actress further said, “It’s human nature to want to look our best. BUT we are exposed daily to photos that may not be a true reflection of the original image, which adds extra pressure on as all to look a certain way & feel inferior because this is simply unachievable. We are all beautiful & unique Let’s keep it real ladies!!”
Stacey also ranted about her trip to a salon. She talked about it in an Instagram post: “Ok so my faith in humanity was dented today when I went to a salon to get a facial where I was told… ‘you should start having Botox and fillers now before it’s too late.'”
The mother of two said, “How on Earth are young girls supposed to be confident and happy in their own skin when it’s being fed to them (in professional health and wellness clinics) that they need to prevent ageing using Botox and fillers before it’s too late (AT THE RIPE OLD AGE OF 28!!!!!!) my goodness.”
Explaining this event, she added, “I felt 10 years older walking out than I did walking in just because of that comment. I believe that people should do whatever makes them happy, if you want fillers and Botox there’s nothing wrong with that.”
“But I don’t agree with it being pushed down your throat by people in that industry scaremongering and making the perfectly natural ageing process feel like a disease. Anyone out there if you fancy my penny’s worth the best anti ageing you can do is look after your health and well-being. Anyway rant over lots of love,” said Solomon.
Her fans appreciated her all over Instagram. “
I just watched The Loose Women piece where you talk about airbrushing and I absolutely agree with you. You are beautiful and honest. Celebrities should follow your example and we wouldn’t be ashamed of our “imperfections”. Thank you Stacey Solomon.”
Another commented, “Love the way you share your posts and your so accurate your body is naturally beautiful all this editing gives force images and not what a person’s real image is your an inspiration to a lot of young generation.”
Every girl should embrace her perfect imperfections! Stacey, you go girl!
