Padma Lakshmi Just Gave a Shoutout to Her Stretch Marks
Struggling with body acceptance? Take note.
Padma Lakshmi doesn't care about anyone's stretch mark judgment. In fact, the Top Chef judge recently posted an Instagram story proudly embracing them. Lakshimi labeled the photo "Hey stretch." In the snap, she looks relaxed with heart stickers floating above her head. (This woman is also reminding everyone that stretch marks are beautiful.)
Lakshmi recently revealed that in order to set a positive example for her daughter, she's done trying to lose weight for awards season every year. "If I need a bigger dress, so be it," she wrote in the Hollywood Reporter. "That one day-or any day-on the red carpet isn't nearly as important as making sure my daughter doesn't measure her worth by her dress size."

Sounds like a good role model to us.
