The way we present ourselves to the world is not always the way we see ourselves. This gap widens when met with the constant memory…
Jordyn Woods is celebrating her 25th birthday in a big way.
Kylie Jenner’s ex-girlfriend posed for an elaborate photoshoot in which she resembled Venus in a half-shell from Italian artist Sandro Botticelli’s famous 1480s painting The Birth of Venus.
The influencer was completely naked in just a necklace as she held her private parts in images shared on Instagram on Friday.
In the new images, Woods is seen shirtless while standing in a seashell.
Her hair was worn out in soft waves as she wore lots of dewy makeup. She credited her entire glam team for the shoot.
And in her caption, the siren said she’s been through a lot in her 25 years, which no doubt refers to allegations she had an affair with Khloe Kardashian’s baby daddy Tristan Thompson.
“Fourth century,” the star began the caption.
“For some reason turning 25 feels different than any other birthday I’ve had.”
Afterwards, she said: “Over the last decade of my life I have endured and dealt with a lot mentally and personally. I took the time to put in the work, learn, grow, and heal.
The healing seems to relate to her father’s death, but also to her best friend’s breakup with Kylie Jenner.
“That being said, this upcoming chapter of my life is going to be the best yet!
“My inspiration for this photo is the birth of Venus, because it practically represents the rebirth of civilization and a new hope.”
And she was perceived as a version of the Mona Lisa.
There was no sign of her basketball player handsome Karl-Anthony Towns in Jamaica.
The beauty lost 30 kilos two years ago when she was accused of having a relationship with Thompson.
Since then, Woods has continued to lose weight.
In early September, Woods shared glimpses of her shape in glamorous pinup photos for Instagram.

In the images, she wore a turquoise bikini top with a matching brief that was barely visible as she wore a green scarf around her hips.
The siren added a straw cowboy hat with earrings and a gold necklace with a crystal pendant.
In her caption, she said Libra season is around the corner (her birthday is September 23); her ex-girlfriend Kim Kardashian is also a Libra, who will turn 42 on October 21.
Last month, the model and Towns visited Italy to attend the European wedding of NBA star Paul George and his longtime partner Daniela Rajic.
The socialite shared photos of the iconic form-fitting beaded sequin dress she wore with glittering diamond jewelery to caption the nuptials ‘I love LOVE’.

She recently launched her profile on Playboy’s Centerfold platform, further expanding the digital footprint she’s building for herself.
Woods said earlier this summer that exercise saved her from a “deep depression.”
The model began to struggle with her mental health after her father died five years ago, and said that turning to exercise and following a special training regime became her “therapy” during the difficult period.
In an Instagram post celebrating the launch of her new fitness app, FrstPlace, she wrote: “I started my fitness platform because for years I struggled with my identity, I was judged about my weight on the internet since I was about 10 years old. I’ve become a young woman in front of everyone and I’m still growing and learning every day.
Aren’t you friends? Woods does not appear to have reconnected with Kylie; seen this week
“On the internet everyone has a right to know every little thing but to be honest it’s nobody’s business, about five years ago I was in a deep depression and then my dad passed away. I smiled but every day was a different struggle and then I found a gym. Training became my therapy and my salvation.
“With my app and platform, I’ve never said that losing weight is ‘healthy’ or that if you work out and use my plans, you’ll ‘look like me.’
“But what I do know is that there are many people who are just like me, who may be struggling to find their place in the world or struggle with their own anxiety and mental health.
“Training saved me and I wanted to tell everyone that we all start somewhere. You are beautiful at any weight, shape or size, but you are not alone.
In the past, Jordyn has been outspoken about body positivity and in 2018 she launched her own debut fashion label, SECNDNTURE, a line focused on plus-size activewear.
Speaking at the time about her passion for training, she said: “While training all the time, I realized that somehow there was a line of sportswear that was super quality, affordable and sized, so I thought, ‘Why not make my own’.’
