Chrissy Teigen's Awkward Selfie Outtake May Be Her Best One Yet (PHOTOS)

From her stretch marks to her recent pissed-off pushback against endless media questions about babies, Chrissy Teigen balances her cover girl amazing-ness with plenty of reminders that she's a chick in the struggle just like the rest of us. Which is why Chrissy's latest side-by-side Instagram posts made us cackle out loud.


Here's the first pic she posted yesterday where she looks otherworldly freaking gorgeous. That face. The way her hair is effortlessly tousled on top of her head. The pouty lips and dreamy blue chemise. This is why she makes the big bucks, folks. No shocker here.

Now to be sure, the very best picture most of us have ever taken isn't nearly this gorgeous, so it's not like the picture itself is embarrassing or anything, but what it does point out is how ridiculous all of our social media feeds are in comparison to actual life.

So, the next time you're scrolling through social media and feeling a little like your life suuuuuucks in comparison, or you're looking at pictures of hopelessly gorgeous women like Chrissy, remember that we all have bad pictures and rough days and failures and humiliations and heartbreaks. Most people just don't let you see that part of them or admit that what they're presenting is a fairy-tale fun house mirror filtered version of their actual life. And that's totally cool.

Luckily, there are ladies in the public spotlight like Chrissy who are confident and honest enough to let you see their flaws. It's such a refreshing balance against all of the psychotic, Pinterest-perfect versions of life we're bombarded with every single day. It helps.

Need proof? In just one day, "the one you don't" post has gotten more than 94,000 likes. Looks like we're not the only ones crushing on Chrissy and her fierce honesty.

Thanks, girl. You rule.
