I'm 18, 5'8" and I weigh 106 lbs. I've always been naturally thin and never really had any body-image issues up until about 3 years ago, when I noticed the amount of cellulite (and dimples) that had formed on the back of my thighs. I've been vegetarian from the time I was 13, but only started really following a diet plan about 2 years ago.
My everyday diet consists of:
B: Half a bottle of water, a cup of coffee with almond creamer and 1 packet of sweetener - I've always been a huge fan of coffee, but have only been able to drink a few sips of it in the morning for the past 4 months - and usually make a juice with 1 cup of spinach, 1 kale leaf, 1/2 cup of strawberries and chia seeds, and half a banana; if I don't feel like that, I like to have avocado on half a piece of Nature's Harvest whole grain bread with almond butter or an egg, rarely.
L: Consists of a salad with lettuce, cucumber, avocado (if I don't have that for breakfast), some raspberries, and a "light" dressing.
D: Veggies. Either a cup of cooked spinach or broccoli, sweet potato on occasion, sometimes half a sandwich. I pair this with a glass of water with lemon and two shots of apple cider vinegar.
Snack: Tomato slices with some pepper, cucumber, a slice of watermelon if I have any, a handful of almonds/raisins, avocado with about a tbls of dressing, half a cup of Yoplait Greek yogurt, a bowl of fruit, celery with almond butter.
I go for a walk/run twice a day and do between 20-40 squats/pilates a day.
I'm trying to get signed to a modeling agency, and they have very strict guidelines (as you can probably imagine) and it's very frustrating because I feel like no matter what I do, I can't get this to go away. I've attached a picture of myself and the back of my legs so you can see the difference between my top and lower haves.

I'm not sure I understand your question. It looks like you have a great diet, minus you can use more protein. A little essential (your body can't synthesize them) protein would be great for building cells and maintaining muscle. If you don't want to eat meat, quinoa is a decent replacement because of it's protein quality.
I'm not aware of anything in a diet that can change the fat back there. Losing weight can sometimes help, but obviously you losing anymore weight wouldn't be good. Maybe building a little muscle could help.
I'm curious how much chia you normally have? We eat pretty similarly by the way.0
