The problem is that little girls see this & think they’re fat. Oprah did a show w/ the mothers of 2 little girls. One was 3 (THREE!!!), & the other 5 years old. Both were dieting b/c they thought they were fat. The mothers were educated, upper-middle class women who really should know better than to stress looks to such impressionable young children.
Is that extreme? Yes. But look at the extreme that makes them that way. Also, this particular model is lucky if that’s her real hair. Although, she should appreciate it while it lasts, b/c it prob won’t much longer.
Even her face looks sunken in. I don’t know if she does coke, but she certainly looks like it to me. And her posture sucks.
The prob is the word itself. When in fashion, it should be taken into context.
1. a person or thing that serves as a subject for an artist, sculptor, writer, etc.
2. a person whose profession is posing for artists or photographers.
3. a person employed to wear clothing or pose with a product for purposes of display and advertising.
But unfortunately, sometimes ppl (esp impressionable young girls & boys) mix it up w/ it’s other meanings; namely,
1. a standard or example for imitation or comparison.
I know this is not the most important thing in the world. But it is troublesome none the less.
UPDATE: Ok, so I haven’t posted here or read my reg blogs in a while. Well, I was catching up on the blogs that I did used to read daily, & found something Vi had posted a week ago. You have to read it. It is very interesting. We do seem to need extremes of any kind to get us talking about stuff, huh? Or else maybe we just don’t notice?
