Portuguese model and actress Sara Sampaio encouraged her followers to practice self-love with two positive videos normalizing her body “rolls,” see what her positive message was!
Sara Sampaio, the Victoria’s Secret Angel born in Portugal and known for being Giorgio Armani beauty ambassador promoted body confidence in her TikTok and Instagram account.
After receiving several offensive comments and getting into a heated debate with actress Jameela Jamil over the modeling industry –Jameela criticized models for being 'long-starved terrified teenagers,' Sara decided to share a message of kindness and self-love.
'A little Friday PSA for all of you,' and 'Be kind to people and yourself and please stop commenting on people's changing bodies,' were the words she chose to say.
The 29-year-old model appears in front of the camera wearing no makeup whatsoever as the footage shows her posing as she normally would for a photoshoot and immediately dropping her pose. At the same time, the popular audio that states 'Bodies that look like this, also look like this. Backs that look like this, also look like this' is playing and she shows her body rolls and her normal belly when she stops posing.
In a world where we have been brought up to believe we should fit into a mold and anything that is out of the norm is not pretty, is great to see role models trying to portray a more “regular” image, the truth is, however, that her body is still quite hegemonic and for lots of us, quite difficult to attain. The message is, then, to love yourself and to care for your body no matter the shape or form, in the end, it is only a shell.
