Newsflash: MODELS ARE WAY TOO FUCKING SKINNY.





These photos Life Mag just posted of models at Fashion Week make me want to vomit. Fitting, no? Thin is always going to be in. I can deal with that. But your spine shouldn't be visible from the outside of your body. In any other universe, people who look like this "naturally" (and very few of these girls look like this naturally -- girls starving themselves in the modeling industry is an open secret) would be trying to GAIN weight. It's depressing and horrible that girls are celebrated for looking like they were just released from a prison camp.

Life kept it classy, by the way, shooting models "eating," but "just not a lot."

No wonder models have been fainting on the job.

I'm confident no designers actually read this blog, but just in case...

THE AVERAGE AMERICAN WOMAN WEIGHS AROUND 140 POUNDS. MOST OF THE WOMEN WILL BUY YOUR CLOTHES ARE NOT SAMPLE SIZES. STOP DESIGNING CLOTHING FOR SKELETONS AND REINFORCING THE IDEA THAT REAL WOMEN ARE SUPPOSED TO LOOK HOLLOWED-EYED BAGS OF BONES.

Wow, those are so sad.

Thank you! And to think...the camera adds 10 pounds.

And the blurb in Life says something like everywhere we looked models were indulging. Because eating a piece of pineapple is really fucking indulging. Not to mention the girl who went crazy and ate a chocolate chip cookie.

bree -- i know. i've seen just about everyone in person for work (not models, but musicians), and anyone who even looks "kinda normal" or "a little curvy" or "like a real woman" is actually really fucking skinny in person.

the sad thing is that if these women (well, girls, for the most part) were at a healthy weight for the skinny frames most of them have, they would STILL LOOK AMAZING IN THE CLOTHES.

If you want to send your couture out on a bag of bones, don't even bother taking it off the hangers.

I totally agree with you. I'm proud of being curvy and no one should force any one to get that stick figure or even encourage the thought that stick look is the hot look.
