Natural or bust, according to Irina Shayk. The Russian born model, 33, doesn’t believe in striving for an unachievable goal when it comes to beauty — but she also won’t judge whatever you decide to augment to boost your self esteem. Either way, she doesn’t believe in “perfection.”

“Look, if somebody wants to inject their lips because they feel bad, God bless them. I don’t judge anyone,” she said to Harper’s BAZAAR while shooting their summer digital cover. “I always promote natural beauty because I think we live in this perfect world where everyone wants to be perfect.”

“But I’m not perfect,” she continued. “Sometimes I have a double chin. Perfection doesn’t exist.”

Woof. Sounds like a tall order coming from someone who is seen as a pinnacle of perfection in modern society. The brunette beauty has a bustling modeling career — but doesn’t shy away from the fact that the youth that employs her isn’t everything.

“I’m going to have wrinkles and I have wrinkles,” she revealed further. “You just have to accept the idea of aging and of bodies at every stage, and just celebrate it. In life, we have to let it go and understand it’s a human process not to be perfect.”

But when it comes to the rumors about her appearance, the lip fillers one is the assumption that really makes her chuckle.

“And if I read [a headline] and it’s like, ‘She had injections, her lips look like dumplings,’ I just laugh because it just makes me, I don’t want to say it makes me happy, but I think in this life you have to have a sense of humor,” she explained. “With everything that’s going on in the world, you have to take it easy. Some people are going to love you, some people are going to hate you. It doesn’t really disturb my life.”
