Cara Delevingne "Embraces" Psoriasis, Can Handle Your Negativity

Water off a modelesque duck's back!

Posted on

Avid Instagram user Cara Delevingne has been busy uploading snaps from her recent trip to Brazil, for photo shoots and an amFAR charity gala.

The jet-setting life of a model, naturally.

Some of Delevingne's photos highlight her psoriasis, a skin condition likely exacerbated by Instagram's hip filters.

And Internet commenters were — shockingly — mean about this. Sample comments on her Instagram page included "OMG your skin," "Ugly shoes, ugly legs" (note: Those "ugly shoes" are Chanel), and "Cara Delevingne, you need a bath!"

In tweets that followed, the model owned both her psoriasis and her critics.

I can handle the negative comments but just remember that no one is perfect. EMBRACE YOUR INDIVIDUALITY! It's makes you who you are x
