Former Miss Alabama Katherine Webb has gotten a lot of attention for her looks, but she's secure enough to show herself au naturel. Webb showed her makeup-free face on Instagram Wednesday, admitting that she had been self-conscious for a long time but is now OK with her imperfections.
When she posted the photo of her face, Webb included a quote about self-confidence. “Feeling confident enough today to post this, finally. I have quite a few imperfections too!,” she wrote. “Grew up feeling insecure and self-conscious about my skin and the white patches that cover half my body, but I don’t care what people think anymore. I just had to get really good at doing makeup." She added a quote from Kevin Aucoin, celebrity makeup artist: ‘That’s why I began doing makeup in the first place: I was hoping that through helping people see the beauty in themselves, I could try and find it in me.”
Webb, the girlfriend of University of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron, quickly rose to fame in January when he lead the Alabama Crimson Tide in the AFCA National Championship and took home the trophy with their win over Notre Dame last year.
Webb of course attended the big game, and when the cameras panned to her, the game’s commentators quickly shifted focus to Webb’s beauty.
"You quarterbacks, you get all the good-looking women," ESPN commentator Brent Musburger said. "What a beautiful woman."
"Wow!" former Ohio State QB Kirk Herbstreit commented.
"Whoa," Musburger replied.
After the comments from the sportscasters, the media could not get enough of the beautiful model, and she told Yahoo Sports that she gained scores of Twitter followers and that her phone wouldn't stop vibrating with incoming texts and emails.
"My phone is dead," she told Yahoo Sports soon after the BCS game. "My followers went from 2,300 this morning to 96,000 by the end of the night. I don't know if I should even check now. I don't know what is going on."
Webb was sure to thank Musburger for helping her attain national attention.
