There's something very different about this model's Victoria's Secret photoshoot – and the internet can't get enough


Who needs airbrushing anyway? The Victoria’s Secret Instagram page is flush with photos of seemingly flawless models in lavish lingerie, with not a hair (nor curve) out of place. All but one that is.

The women’s premium lingerie company released sultry shots of model Jasmin Tookes in a showstopping emerald green b-dazzled $3 million (about R40 million) 2016 Bright Night Fantasy Bra. In it, the brunette beauty shows off something that's not often seen in photos like these -- her stretch marks. The visible stretch marks on the model's thigh bring a touch of reality into a world of retouched and airbrushed photos of women -- and the internet couldn't be happier about it.
The new shoot comes after the luxury underwear company came under fire for treating models like “pieces of meat" and "criticising their near-perfect bodies".

It’s apparently the first time the luxury lingerie company have released unedited pictures, but they have yet to comment on whether or not it was deliberate, MailOnline reports.

Do you think the un-retouched photo is a step in the right direction? Or is the famous lingerie brand not going far enough? Have your say on our Facebook page.
