Model Christine Teigen posted a photo of her leg, showing a hint of stretchmarks, with just the word "whatevs".

Not only has she shed light on the myth that models are unblemished creatures of perfection, but Teigen has helped to normalise an everyday part of being human that the beauty industry tells us is something we should want to get rid of.

And people are very happy about it.
