Last weekend, Kim Kardashian West’s KKW fragrance advertisement—which reveals Kardashian West’s naked torso—quickly went viral. This week, however, a different version of Kardashian West’s ad is sweeping the internet, portraying a woman who recreated the pose on her own Instagram account, Cosmopolitan reports.

Carmen Smith, 30, has already gotten over 4,600 likes and 190 comments on her replication of Kardashian West’s image, promoting a very different body type than the star. “I was slightly bothered by the way her display could make women feel,” Smith says to Cosmo in an interview. “I felt empowered to share a different reality—a reality that many women can relate to.”
After a few tries of snapping similar selfies with her iPhone, Smith finally nailed the shot she was looking for. “When I put my photo next to Kim’s, I smiled. I saw two beautiful, perfect bodies,” she says.
Smith then posted the photo to social media, with an inspiring message about perfection as her caption. “One of these bodies, a large part of our society will deem as “perfect”. My body is empowered by the opportunity to share a different reality,” writes Smith. There is no body better than the next. There is no one body that is “perfect”. There is your body, unique, worthy, desirable and perfect,” she continues towards the end of the post.
With such a positive outlook on body image, we can’t help but love Smith’s message and hope that more people will take her approach towards body acceptance in the future. After all, Smith sums it up best: “All body’s [sic] are good bodies.”
