The beautiful, Charlotte McKinney is a pretty big favorite of ours here at FHM. I mean, it's not exactly difficult to see why and I'm sure her 1.3 million Instagram followers would share in that sentiment. While McKinney has often been compared to the lovely Kate Upton, so much so that she herself has even commented on it — “It’s pretty obvious. We both have blonde hair, we’re from Florida, and we have enormous (breasts). It’s super-flattering to me." — we like to go ahead and make sure that even women who share similar features, are presented with identities of their own!
If you can even believe it, McKinney was bullied quite a bit growing up. Being beautiful isn't always the end all, be all to happiness and acceptance, my friends. It's refreshing to see that she parlayed that misfortune into something positive. She now speaks out against those injustices— promoting tolerance and confidence for all women, regardless of size and shape. She recognizes that she's not flawed, the industry is. She was once quoted saying —
"I'm embracing what I have. I'm a curvier bombshell with big boobs. I'm not high-fashion. I don't do runway. You won't see me at Fashion Week."
Well, that's a-okay with us, Charlotte! We certainly are enjoying your presence on Instagram — some of which is taken from a wide-array of high-end fashion photoshoots. Looks like she's defying her own odds left and right, runway or not! Now go ahead and see what all the fuss is about!
