A 21-year-old plus-size model from Hungary is teaching women to embrace their flaws through her social media account.

Diana Sirokai, a plus-size model from Hungary has been recreating iconic photo shoots that feature popular models and celebs. 

The idea is to show people how different the pics would look with a plus-size model in them.

In the past, she has recreated shots of Kim Kardashian in her own, plus-sized style. 

Recently, she recreated model Gigi Hadid's iconic Stuart Weitzman campaign to show her followers on Instagram that women of all sizes are beautiful.

'Even though I love @victoriassecret, it has always made me feel like I am not beautiful enough to wear a fancy beautiful bra.

'Well guess what! I am and I feel beautiful in it.

'Those girls on the runway are amazing and so are the rest of the women on this Earth. We are all beautiful.'

Remember this pic that broke the Internet last year?

Back in October 2016, Diana Sirokai and Callie Thorpe shared a heavily airbrushed picture of themselves alongside the reality. Scroll down to see the pic.

The purpose was to show people how magazines and the media takes editing to a different level.

She wanted to show women that it was okay to look 'normal', to have cellulite, stretch marks and tummies that aren't flat and toned.

"Models and celebrities do not even look like themselves. We live in such a fake world, it's time to bring real back. Own who you are and slay!" she wrote on Instagram.

'I meet a lot of women and men daily.

'I realise that we all struggle with different insecurities and waste so much time hating ourselves for it.

'When did we become like this? Why does beauty have standards?

'We fight so much for body image issues when I think it's way deeper than that.

'We have been brainwashed so badly that we don't even see value in ourselves anymore?

'This generation thinks 'popping bottles' is lit.

'It's rare to find someone you can trust either a partner or a friend, trusting people has become an issue.

'WORK on yourself! Become a better you, it's not only body image. We have to change as human beings.

'Today's world is messed up let's be honest.

'We need a change and the only way we can achieve that is if you start with the person in the mirror.'

'I'm really curious when you say 'I am not beautiful' what is that you actually mean?

'What makes you think that? Where do these thoughts come from?

'When I used to think like that I used to admire other women's appearance and I was so blind that I didn't see my own. So where is your thoughts come from?'
