The thigh's the limit – stars like Beyonce don't want a thigh gap anymore…

Finally celebs are turning their back on the thigh gap phenomena and embracing their curves!

After teenage girls became obsessed with stars like Alexa Chung, Cara Delevingne and Eleanor Calder, girlfriend of One Direction member Louis Tomlinson, whose legs don’t touch at the top, some famous women are bucking the trend with some serious curves – including Beyonce Knowles.

Obviously, women come in different shapes and sizes, with Alexa Chung hitting back at skinny jibes: I’m not trying to be thinspo for anyone.’

But there’s a definite thigh gap backlash in the air.

Mischa Barton and Frankie Sandford have both filled in their thigh gap and I think they look much healthier for it.

And thanks to the gorgeous Beyonce and uber-cool Lena Dunham, it’s no longer trendy to have stick thin legs.

Slammed for daring to attend an event wearing tiny shorts, size 14 Lena hit back: ‘I don’t think a girl with tiny thighs would have received such no-pants attention. I think what it really was…”Why did you all make us look at your thighs?”

‘My response is, get used to it because I am going to live to be 100, and I am going to show my thighs every day ’til I die.’


Now maybe all us girls with non-model legs – and even a bit of cellulite – can wear cute shorts this summer without worrying about how much daylight can be seen between them!
