Chrissy Teigen. What is there to say? When the woman is right — which is damn near always! — the woman is right.
Chrissy spoke to E! News about inclusion in modeling, and the need for more representation.
"I want it to be a normal thing to be able to see Asian models, and I think Asian models are really underrepresented in the industry, especially on the runways or in magazines." She added, "I personally am not offended by cultural appropriation of any sort because I feel like it does pay homage, but at the same time there are a lot of beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, Asian women that could do the same thing."
She didn't stop there — adding that the inclusion should extend to film.
"I think it's really important to start embracing people…seeing them in roles that are not necessarily 'That Asian Girl' or 'That Asian Boy'… In movies you're like 'Oh, this Asian girl is dating this white guy' — I want that to be normal."
Yes! Media should reflect the world we see around us — when I go outside, I meet people of all races, genders, and sizes. I want the things I consume to reflect that reality back to me. I think it goes without saying/hyperbole, but: CHRISSY FOR PREZ.
