Who even decided stretch marks are imperfections that we should fight, hide, and prevent? It obviously wasn’t Chrissy Teigen, who shared that she finds her stretches to be totally NBD. And at least one artist, given that she uses the skin marks as her canvas for sparkly works of Instagram art.
Sara Shakeel—who grew a large following for her imaginative pieces (like this one)—has recently been posting a new series of images on Instagram—and the result is a veritable self-love movement. Shakeel added glitter into photos to outline women’s stretch marks, thus reimagining the feature thats all too often considered a flaw into something incredibly empowering and beautiful.
Taylor Swift is well known for writing songs about her previous romances and has previously penned tracks about John Mayer, Joe Jonas, Harry Styles and Jake Gyllenhaal. So its ‘s surprise that fans have speculated that songs on her new album Reputation refer to her former flames Tom Hiddleston and Calvin Harris, as well as her current beau Joe Alwyn.
On her new album track ‘Getaway Car’, she sings: “The ties were black/the lies were white,” which is potentially a reference to the black tie Met Gala, where Swift was filmed dancing with Hiddleston. Their highly publicised romance came hot on the heels of her split from DJ Calvin Harris and another line in the song seems to refer to the love triangle, as she sings: “With three of us, honey, it’s a sideshow” – the Swift, Harris and Hiddleston love triangle was popular tabloid fodder in the summer of 2016.
One fan wrote on Twitter: “So is #getawaycar telling Tom he shouldn’t have been surprised she left him… She was just trying to get away from Calvin?”
Another wrote: “So #GetawayCar is definitely about Tom Hiddleston, right?”
