Chrissy Teigen is an open book when it comes to her real body. 

The longtime model and new mom is famously transparent about how her body looks without the retouching magic of Photoshop. She first made headlines last year in April when she shared a photo of her bruised thighs with visible stretch marks. The image immediately made headlines and Teigen's subsequent comments on the moment solidified her as one of Hollywood's body champions.

"I was actually just taking a picture of the bruises and then I saw the stretch marks in there," she told Meredith Vieira at the time. "I have those apps, the Facetune and Photoshopping ones, and I just didn't feel like doing it anymore—and I'm never doing it again, because I think we forgot what normal people look like now."

In a brand new attempt to keep it real in the land of make believe, the 30-year-old television personality took to Snapchat to share an up-close and personal look at her stretch marks once again—only this time, it was four months after giving birth for the first time to daughter Luna Simone Stephens

"lol my thighs have tributaries," she joked of the marks with a crying emoji. While some have hailed the former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit covergirl for her seemingly unchanging post-baby physique, this Snapchat poked fun at the illusion.

In fact, Chrissy is in no rush to change her new body. "You just realize you have to give yourself time and understand that you push out a baby, and it took this long to put on the weight, and it's not going to peel right off, and that's OK," she told E! News in July. "Enjoy your baby. Don't go crazy."

Her stretch marks weren't the only part of her look that Chrissy showed off on social media Tuesday night. She also shared a glamorous selfie of her honey blond wavy bob with side bangs framing her face. 

Stunning from head to toe, Chrissy!
