    Update, Effecive Jan 1, 2011:




    A note from the Moderators:

    tFS weight discussion guidelines were created to encourage a more constructive and mature discourse regarding weight issues as they relate to fashion, models and celebrities. Prior to our weight discussion guidelines, celebrity style threads were completely derailed by weight comments and the actual style discussion was lost. This is a problem considering we're a fashion focused forum. Moreover, we had numerous members posting pro-ED comments and photos. We have a lot of young members at tFS who may be negatively influenced by such ideas. By creating a single forum to discuss weight issues, we can easily monitor such discussion.

    Previous weight threads have allowed the discussion of personal weight issues. Despite our best attempts and guidelines to the contrary, extreme personal issues, misinformation, and diet and medical advice were continually present. In order to refocus discussion toward more fashion industry related issues, personal issues will no longer be allowed. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

    • You may discuss models and celebrities that you feel have issues with their weight but keep in mind that it needs to be done in a mature, respectful manner.
    • Detailed discussion of models'/celebs' diets (i.e. food diaries, weight loss tricks, et al.) is not allowed.
    • No photoshopped pictures or derogatory posts.
    • ALL weight discussion must be handled in this thread. It will not be allowed in any other part of this forum and will be deleted.

    Funny you would mention this - about an hour ago I was drinking coffee with some friends and there was a fashion magazine on our table with an article about models before and after having their make-up done at shows, with a photo of Eniko included. All my friends thought she was the prettiest out of them all (some of the other featured models were Sasha, Karlie, Chanel and Anna S amongst others.) The adjectives thrown around were usually something like 'adorable', 'cute' and 'classic beauty'.
    That being said, these were all girls. Perhaps there's a difference between a man's opinion?

    It kind of makes me sad to read that, because it comforts me in the idea that we do not see models as emaciated as they really are. We're used to see girls who are scarily skinny, so now we're almost finding it "normal" and not alarming at all.

    I doubt that the girl on the picture above is healthy. So yes, I find it shocking.

    Magdalena looked so much better and healthier! Do you think this is the reason why she wasn't present at Paris last Spring/Summer 2011 season?

    Her stomach wasn't concave, so in that sense, there was improvement. But even with the VS hair and makeup she just looked...drawn.

    Madga looks better than I thought she would.

    I think that's what bothers me, too. Her body type is incredibly, incredibly rare- she can't weigh over 110 lbs at 5'9, yet she has at least a B cup chest (cups get smaller as band size gets smaller, so she may even be a C); for 99% of the population, that's not attainable. Can she help her size? I have no idea. But I do feel like a brand like VS should be advertising and celebrating bodies that were "earned."

    Magdalena looked radiant, i take back my misgivings, for the first time ever i thought her beautiful.

    Anja just looked awful as ever though, not sexy at all, same for Chanel. disgusting is a harsh word, but it crossed my mind more than once last night i must admit.

    I've been searching trough this thread and it botters me a lot.
    Melissa T. is healthy, that just her body. I don't know if someone people know but there are in this world girls who are skinny just their intire life. And it's just really weird to read this. So skinny girls aren't healthy?????? I know a lot of them and they eat like anyone else (or even more). It's just dumb to find that shocking. It is shocking when someone suddenly is much thinner. THAT IS NOT HEALTHY and even then they can suffer from a flu, stress to anorexic. This is what the modelworld wants, lovehandles aren't done in the industry and it's about the clothes at HF.

    Chanel was misplaces at VS, that is about the sexy bodies.

    I agree. Plus, if anyone actually bothered going to Melissa Tammerijn's thread and checking her out, her body is actually quite proportional and healthy in appearance - similar to that of Jacquelyn Jablonski. Melissa just has prominent cheekbones and small breasts.

    Oh yes, because bodies of typical bombshells are very easy to achieve and won't f*ck up up.
    Big breasts, super tiny waists, perfectly toned bodies. I think that's your typical everyday request at the plastic surgeon.

    I do not understand in what way a body like Chanel is less acceptable than a body like any 90s glamazon, both are totally impossible to emulate and stupid to aspire.
    Funny enough, this reminds, and contrary to the official version, as a teen I remember perfectly how happy all the girls were that someone like Kate Moss was a model, exactly because someone that had a body like us could be hailed as a beauty. Yes small breast could also be beautiful and scrawny bodies were not be despised. If you take in a account that boys bedroom walls had Pamela Anderson or Cindy , I think bodies like Chanel or Kate Moss next to those look distinctly average. It's all a question of perspective.
    How lingeries model's bodies nowdays became something that is easy and healthy to emulate is beyond me. No amount of work ,diet, or even plastic surgery would make me look like a typical Angel.

    Thanks for mentioning what appears to be Chanel's cup size. See that's the thing despite several posts to the contrary, Chanel has boobs (helped even more so by the tricky engineering of the VS bras) and she has a butt, now she has no hips, and her arms and legs are like sticks - although her legs actually looked a little thicker at the show. IMO, models in general and VS models in particular, are winners of the genetic lottery and are at least in the 95th percentile when it comes to their physicality, so in that respect Chanel's body is no less earned than the others.

    While it is unusual, that is not unheard of for someone in their late teens / early twenties to have Chanel's look, I see more bony girls with medium to large boobs running around than the Native American-African-European-Asian melange that produced Adriana Lima, the biggest defference between Chanel and other girls with her proportions is that they tend to be short, so her height is the most freakish thing about her body. I can definitely see why people may find other body types more appealing, and even Chanel's most ardent detractors state that she seems healthy (of course no one knows for sure, but that applies to any model - thin, curvy or plus)... hey, there are several angels / supermodels / VS regulars that most should be able to find one or more that suits their tastes.
