Christie Brinkley's Daughter Sailor Has a Powerful Message to Girls About the VS Show
Monday night heralded this year's highly anticipated Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, where thousands of viewers tuned in to watch a parade of winged supermodels dressed in lingerie strut their stuff down the pink catwalk.
With most of us watching with a mixture of awe and despair as we see the Angels' seemingly unattainable perfect thighs, legs for days, and rock hard abs, Sailor Brinkley Cook decided to speak out about embracing the skin you're in.
The 18-year-old model, who is legendary supermodel Christie Brinkley's daughter, knows a little something about the unrealistic pressures to be "perfect" in the fashion world—after all, she's been compared to her famous mom for years. Before the show, the college freshman decided to reach out to her fellow women with a body positive 'gram that simultaneously celebrates the "boss" models while also promoting different body types.

"These girls are such beautiful boss hard working strong determined women," the teen began the empowering message, which accompanied an image of the VS models happily posing in a group shot. "But to all the young girls watching tonight... don't forget that if your body doesn't look like theirs it is totally OK. No body type is superior to another. Every body is different and each and every one of those [bodies] are beautiful and strong and important and worthy of great things."
She continued, "Don't freak out if your stomach doesn't look like theirs. Don't hate yourself for your thighs. Embrace your body type, work hard, set goals, be healthy and constantly remind yourself that you are good enough!"
"VS is a celebration of women and awesome beauty. And comparison to anyone is never healthy! Don't turn this fashion show into something negative. Congrats to the VS angels on tonight's show! I've seen how dedicated these girls are and you all really do kick ass on and off the runway. so much respect for you guys and everyone at VS!" she concluded.
Talk about an inspiring message celebrating all kinds of beauty.
