High fashion resisting curvy Kate Upton trend
FoxNews ^ | March 19, 2013 | By Hollie McKay

LOS ANGELES – Two-time Sports Illustrated cover girl Kate Upton upended the modeling world in 2012, bringing back curves, scoring lucrative high-end contracts with the likes of Mercedes Benz, and even infiltrating the high-fashion pages of Vogue.

But if the latest string of international fashion weeks is anything to go by, Upton may be an anomaly, as skin-and-bone bodies ruled the runways. Despite the outcry in recent years to curb using excessively waif-like models on the runway, and the establishment of organizations such as the non-profit Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), curves were nowhere to be seen in New York, Milan, London or Paris.

My thought is that gay men run the modeling industry, and that they have a propensity toward models who are built like teenaged boys.

That's because most of the fashion industry is led by gay men, who only like women who look like 12 year old boys. She does not look like a hairless boy.

Given that a large chunk of the people in charge of the fashion industry are rather light in their loafers, their preference for models which look like young boys is rather self explanatory.

Fashion is dominated by gay men and menopausal women.

Neither group is renowned for its charitable attitude towards healthy young women. Thus models are chosen for their asexual appearances and often made up to look ill or even corpse-like.

It’s not misogyny when we do it! (TM)

I’d take Kate Upton over an entire busload of beanpole supermodels.

Because all of the designers are fags who want the women to look like little boys.

the deviants make clothes for the taylor manequin, not humans. Also curves are complicated and have to be taylored to fit. flat sticks are uniform.

Then again rotund blobs have no dressability either.

High fashion has never liked curvy models, they want the focus of attention to be on the clothes not the girl.

You and Edna Mode.

"Supermodels. Heh! Nothing super about them... spoiled, stupid little stick figures with poofy lips who think only about themselves."

Kate is not built like a teenage boy, but I'm sure many teenage boys are looking at her.

Precisely. Models are picked for their resemblance to a 10 year old boy in drag.

The world of fashion continues to be dominated by homosexuals, who insist on the look of a young boy in all models.

It’s like steroids. Maybe Congress can do an investigation for a couple of months. Better that than them passing more healthcare tax bills and passing more restrictive laws.

She doesn’t look like and have the body of a 10 yr old boy.

The H-Mo’s in the fashion industry are not interested in her.

“Kate is not built like a teenage boy, but I’m sure many teenage boys are looking at her.”

So is this middle-aged man who occasionally acts like a teenage boy.

A little humor on this subject

I was telling a girl in the pub about my ability to guess what day a woman was born just by feeling her boobs.

“Really” she said, “Go on then...try.”

After about thirty seconds of fondling she began to lose patience and said.

“Come on, what day was I born”?

I said, “Yesterday.”
