When she isn’t busy rearranging the beauty and fashion industry with diverse cosmetics and size-inclusive lingerie, Rihanna is still breaking down body image barriers.
Recently, our girl RiRi took to social media with one of her realest moments yet.
Her latest win? An Instagram post that proudly displays her body hair and addresses her stretch marks candidly.
In her posts, she lounges in a leopard print bikini — her leg hair visible in the bright sun. Many took delight it what appears to be stretch marks in her bikini photo, but Rihanna said it was just the lighting. Still, she admitted she has them!
Naturally, fans are loving it.
“When I’ve been insecure all this time about showing my stretch marks on my lil booty, you just [gave] me hope hunny,” wrote one onlooker. “I love and admire you so much.”
“I love that I can see hair on your legs. You’re motivating women everywhere,” another wrote praising the singer.
“LOVE YOUR NATURAL FACE RIRI!” someone else commented. “You’ve always been an ICON that I’ve looked up too.”
Hate it or love it, Rihanna has more than 62 million followers on Instagram – many of whom are young women who follow her every move.
Here’s hoping Riri’s self-expression and willing transparency is her next big trend.
