Some of the most talented and most beautiful celebrities in the world don’t have a thigh gap. The thigh gap has been the subject of a lot of controversy lately as online communities and “thinspo” blogs promote unhealthy lifestyles to obtain impossible beauty standards. We’re not saying the thigh gap is ugly. If you have one own it, if you want one and go through healthy means to get it, that’s cool too. There’s just no sense in hurting yourself or stressing out because you don’t have one.
As plus size model Robyn Lawley says, “The truth is I couldn’t care less about needing a supposed thigh gap. It’s just another tool of manipulation that other people are trying to use to keep me from loving my body. Why would I want to starve and weaken my natural body size? I’m not saying women who have it naturally are unattractive. But I would have to change my entire frame just to achieve something that seems so trivial.”
The thigh gap gets a lot of love in runways and magazines, so we thought we’d give you a little no-thigh-gap inspo. Many of the most famous women in the world do not have a penny roll sized space between their thighs. Is there anyone regarded as more fierce, stunning and strong than Beyonce? Is there anymore more graceful, dignified and classically beautiful than Adele? Is there anyone more buxom and sultry than Christina Hendricks? There are all different kinds of female bodies and all different kinds of beauty, these gapless starlets are no exception.
