MISS ENGLAND TOLD SHE IS TOO CHUNKY
The Daily Star (UK) ^ | 29th November 2008 | Robert FiskYour

Posted on 11/29/2008 6:32:16 PM PST by llevrok

MODEL agencies are turning down sexy Miss England Laura Coleman because she is too fat.

The blonde has gone up a dress size to a perfect 10.

But Laura, who will take part in Miss World in South Africa next month, has found most agencies have a problem with her new curves.

Laura, 22, said: “I really think the curvy girl should be promoted more as a positive image in the media. But the agencies seemed to have a problem with me when I wasn’t skinny any more.”

Eating disorder specialist Emmy Gilbert added: “The fashion world endorses an ideal which can be unattainable or, if achieved, highly dangerous.”

Anyone who thinks this woman is chunky or fat needs to have eyes and head examined.

She’s gorgeous and just the right size.

>Yes, I bet you didn’t find pictures of libraries or of cakes! To avoid such mistakes, one must learn specialized terminology at its sources first!

I didn’t Google Image search the term, rather I used Wikipedia & UrbanDictionary. (dictionary.com is a good reference for unknown words as well.)

Actually for my taste she might be just a little skinny, but that’s just me.

It makes you thankful our tabloids in the checkout line are only inane and vulgar.

More recent photos show that she has developed an early beer gut, which is kind of gross on her. The rest of her seems fine.

What tabloids? At the supermarket where I’ll be getting my $1.99 croissant @ 7:30 AM tomorrow morning (and that’s all I can afford), there is Scientific American, Outside, bon appetit, New Yorker, Men’s Health, Consumer Reports, and a few other intelligent publications for refined and discerning customers.

Kroger or Publix, depending on which one has Cokes on sale each week. Your shopping is much to refined for my tastes.

True. The world is getting vulgar out there. As one who avoids most R-rated movies and all television, I am still a bit sheltered.

She’s a very pretty young woman, much prettier than those sick looking anorexic skeletons they have on the typical fashion runway today.

Well of course she’s too fat for model agancies!

They’re looking for girls with coat hangar figures so they can drape their useless size 0 designer barf bags off of them.

She can eat crackers in my bed any time!

This is an extraordinarily beautiful woman— unless you’re a pederast art director or fashion designer whose ideal of beauty is a 15-year-old boy.

“I agree; she is a very attractive young woman. Though the “I’d hit that!” comments are a bit... unrefined and show a bit of a lack of dignity (on the part of the posters in respect to the woman); I’d expect it from my fellow Enlisted, but come-on, we’re gentlemen, right?”

OneWingedShark, I truly appreciate your refinement and dignity. What a wonderful example you set. You do your Mama proud! (Too bad I don’t have any daughters of marriagable age at this time. LOL!) You are a keeper!

God Bless!

Thank you.

Um, I could tell her, I guess.

>(Too bad I don’t have any daughters of marriagable age at this time. LOL!) You are a keeper!

Wow, that’s pretty high praise. Thank you again.

>God Bless!

He has, with a good sense of humor and a bit of smarts/wit.
For example look at the reply I got on post 63, and my response on 76.

It’s great she does not want to look like a coat hanger. Those runway models look just plain sick and are a bad example for young girls and older gals as well..
I think Miss England looks just fine...a lot of women would like to look this good!
