We dare you to not fall in love with Chrissy Metz’s debut fashion photo shoot. The This Is Us star channeled her inner pinup girl for Harper’s Bazaar, and not only were the shots on fire, but her messages were powerful too. The star is known for being open about her weight and championing other women to accept themselves, no matter what size they are.
“If you can’t love who you are now, you can’t get to the place you want to be,” Chrissy said. “It’s a daily lesson for all of us. I’m paving the way for other women and men who know they’re destined for greatness but they don’t believe it yet.”
In Hollywood, where slimness is celebrated, Chrissy’s message of self-acceptance shines through. She not only looked happy (and amazing) in a polka-dotted dress, but her comfort in her own skin is empowering too. “There’s more room for all of us now — no matter our sexuality, race, body size, gender or whatever else,” she said. It’s with these words and her own style that will motivate women all around. Scroll on to see more of Chrissy’s photo shoot.
