Even an angel is not perfect.
Brazilian supermodel Lais Ribeiro graced this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show catwalk in China wearing the coveted Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra. But it wasn’t the $2 million jeweled bra that her fans are admiring. It’s the model’s stretch marks that have the internet singing her praises.
The 27-year-old has stretch marks and people online are happy to be reminded, more and more, that even the most beautiful women in the world have flaws.
A fan site for the Victoria’s Secret Angels shared a photo of Ribeiro in which her stretch marks are visible. They captioned the photo, “She is a human, like you and me. She has stretch marks like all the girls! and that’s not ugly. Stretch marks are beautiful. Love your body! It’s the only you will have.”
“Nobody is perfect but still gorgeous, beautiful and sexy,” wrote a commenter. “She is beautiful,” wrote another commenter.
