I didn't say that. I was simply responding to the claim that narrow hips are "rare," that's not true. they just seem more rare due to the obesity epidemic.

I know we're all for models gaining [if they're looking frail], but Behati at this year's show was a bit "excessive."

^ I don't know... she's definitely gained weight, but she looks muscular to me, not gross. Not to mention, VS show has CRAZY catering from what I understand, so her stomach has probably got a little food baby action going on.

The first thing I thought is that Behati might've gone overboard with backstage snacks. She does appear... generous around the middle.

RE: All the Chanel/Adriana talk earlier

I don't think that it's that Adriana's body is "relateable" as much as it's "attainable". Adriana's weight has fluctuated, and her body is very womanly- which, fact of the matter is, is much more common amongst even high school aged young women than Chanel's figure. If you watch what you eat and work out like crazy, you might be able to pull off looking like Adriana (just probably shorter). If you weren't born to have a body like Chanel's, you never will.

Ultimately, though, most of the Chanel bashing- whether it will be admitted or not- is due to the fact that she is a terrible model, and her detractors (myself included) will take any opportunity to challenge her status in the modeling world. :p

behati has one of my favourite bodies in the business. and faces! gorgeous.
Crystal looks stunning in that editorial. I just hope that this major weightloss has happened healthily. I wish more models looked like her (as she is now) to be honest, beautiful stunning face, strong body, presence etc.

Behati looks simply amazing. Welcome to the view of a healthy and real human physique. Although she's still much more slender and so much more toned than your average human being, it's the closest even a brand like VS admits to "looking human and healthy" these days and she was such a relieve to those following the show. If you look at all the comments made on blogs not focusing on fashion you'll find that Behati is the only one not being slammed. But I guess that is anything but positive on a forum like this.

I tend to put that 'healthiness' down to all the tanning/ bronzer/ shimmer and makeup they apply on the night. It's quite a contrast to the stark pared-back or heavily experimental looks of HF.

I do think Behati looks a bit chubby round the middle to be walking a runway show. Even though she may look more 'real' (read: average) than the other VS models it's really not that difficult to have a relatively flat stomach especially if the models ate minimally directly before the show (and I know I'd avoid eating for a few hours before a show where i was walking in lingerie just to avoid the bulge... most girls probably would because most girls are a bit embarrassed showing off a tummy). It's one thing to say that the extreme emaciation of some models is unreasonable and another to say that a more-or-less flat stomach is unreasonable. It shouldn't be. But she looks alright anyway.

Crystal looks good too but her super-defined cheekbones and rapid weight loss make me wonder whether it was really just hiking and nothing else that did this to her. If she seriously got this way after a few months of moderate exercise then it would suggest to me she was extremely unhealthy at her plus size weight because weight shouldn't drop that fast just from walking around a bit. It looks like she's dropped by 6 sizes from half a year ago. So either she's lying about her weight loss tactic or her lifestyle must have been extremely unhealthy before. But her body looks pretty good, whether or not it's healthy for her, and I do wish more models had bodies like it. She looks perfectly lovely in the clothes and I don't see why models of that size would normally never get hired for a shoot like that.

I'd just like to add that the comments about Behati's picture on the VSFS facebook album included many 'fat' and 'she should lose some weight, she looked better before she gained weight' comments - some of them from men

I think behati is beyond gorgeous here, but I'm not fond of the belly sticking out that way. I mean I have no problem with her size or anything, I just think that if it were toned it wouldnt be oozing out of her underwear and those ribbons. But if it's because she ate a lot before then its an other story.. :p

« I wish I had a pot... A pot belly. Pot bellies are sexy. »


About Crystal, seeing her new pictures makes me cringe, and not only because her face looks haggard. I find the contrast between her body accceptance preaching and her yo-yo weight disconcerting and irritating. By constantly talking about her weight history she embraced the role of "plus-size" models spokeswoman and was put in the spotlight. Now that she works with Karl Lagerfeld she coincidentally lose weight, blending with High Fashion diktats by accident.
Whether it was an healthy weight loss or not, she just sends out the exact opposite message of the one she initially promoted. It may sounds harsh but at the end she just looks in my eyes either like an hypocrite desperate to get booked or like a woman with serious body image troubles.
