All the Nudes ... Editors Take Sides in What is Model Behavior for T
New York Post ^ | 12-21-2007 | Keith J. Kelly

Posted on 12/21/2007 6:51:25 AM PST by toddlintown

December 21, 2007 -- THE feud inside the New York Times over a provocative photo of a semi-nude, underage fashion model intensified this week after Times Magazine Editor Gerald Marzorati fired off a missive defending the photo.

The picture in question appeared in the Holiday issue of the glitzy fashion insert T, which came out Dec. 2, and features a soft-focus side-shot glimpse of 17-year-old model Ali Michael, and her exposed left breast.

All the ‘fashion’ designers are homos, so they like their ‘women’ to look like 13 year-old boys.

Designers look for models with the following criteria: The thigh must be the same diameter as the calf. The upper arm must be the same diameter as the wrist. These dimensions are used by doctors to diagnose anorexia.

Not attractive to me. I’d prefer 19 to 23. I’m only 22 but I don’t find young teenagers attractive. They’re like 5’2” and 80lbs. I’m a small-frame guy myself, but twigs just aren’t attractive.

What is even more bizarre is every decade the models get smaller and smaller and younger and younger. So goes the fashion/TV and movie “ideal” female.

While the reality is the average female is larger.

The gap just gets wider and wider every year between reality and the standard of perfection.

Same here, I must prefer to teach my daughters and I have, the concept of being beautiful within.

Bottom line we all get old, nothing uglier than a has-been worn out sliced and diced up former beauty queen/model trying to retain their looks.

Yes, she is beautiful.

LOL! My hubby only wears polo shirts—he gets too warm in long sleeves even in winter. His criteria goes like this: if he can’t wear jeans with his polo shirt, the occasion is “formal”

It’s long held fact, so don’t wonder.

The ideal body for models is not one that is even remotely female. Think clothes hanger. Or 12 year old boy.

After four years of modelling, Twiggy retired, claiming “You can’t be a clothes hanger for your entire life!”
