An Absolute Must Read

A thought provoking and intriguing discussion of model thinness, eating disorders and how they are viewed through the feminist prism:

I happen to think run way models these days are just not attractive. When I pick up a copy of Vogue and look at the women strutting their stuff in Chanel or Lacroix, I DON'T want to look like Kate Moss and her peers. I like curves on women. I think Christina Hendricks, the voluptuous office babe Joan in Mad Men is probably one of the most beautiful woman on TV these days.

Fat is unhealthy for sure, but so is too thin, but the writer in the above article does make a good point that perhaps our obsession with model thinness is, in a way, demeaning to women.

Interesting thought.


  1. It’s about eating what you enjoy (within reason) and relishing in the experience of losing weight while seeing the sites and sounds of your neighborhood.

  2. I totally need underwear like that!

    In my opinion, professional beauties like Kate Beckinsale and Michelle Pfeiffer are fragile-looking. But that's me.
