Posh Spice says no to size zeros modeling her jeans!
February 19th, 2007 under The Beckhams, Thin Models Bad. [ Comments: none ]


VICTORIA BECKHAM is showing zero tolerance for ultra-thin models — and has banned them from promoting her fashion label. Yes, that’s right. Size zero Posh — who can make skinny jeans look baggy — does not want women like her to model her new denim range. Instead the ex SPICE GIRL has hired curvy girls such as DANIELLA SARAHYBA for the job. The former pin up for Sports Illustrated mag is well known in the industry for being slightly bigger than the usual catwalk strutters. Some cynics say Victoria has picked curvy women so she will look better standing next to them when she launches the brand in LA. But friends say she only wants to hire girls who have more curves than she does because they look more “natural”. Victoria recently said: “I know quite a few models and they actually eat, they’re just naturally thin girls.” Talking about her new range she added: “I am completely obsessed about jeans. “I have started wearing high-waist jeans but they do really squeeze you in round the waist and by the end of the day I was beginning to have mental images of my epitaph, ‘Victoria Beckham, done in by denim.’” A source said: “Victoria wants to give out a positive image that you don’t have to be ultra skinny to look good. Many of the models on the catwalk make young girls feel insecure about their own bodies. “Victoria doesn’t want to be accused of giving young girls a complex about their image and putting pressure on them to be as skinny as her.”

Good for her for not wanting girls to get a complex over their images. For someone like her to take a stand against size zeros maybe there is more hope others will listen.


Size Zero models threaten to sue if they are banned from the catwalk?
February 19th, 2007 under Thin Models Bad. [ Comments: 3 ]

SIZE-ZERO models could sue if they’re banned from the catwalk, it was claimed yesterday. The fashion industry is thinking of forcing agencies to shun ultra-thin girls in favour of larger models. But experts say banning skinny girls could be illegal and would prompt some to sue for discrimination. Agency boss Melissa Richardson, who represents Jasmine Guinness, said: "Lots of models eat a lot and stay thin. They do not deserve to be pilloried."

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to see a skeleton walking the runway? For example I would not want to buy the outfit that that model is wearing because the model wearing it is such a turnoff. How many people are really that naturally skinny? I say ban their a$$es until they have one!


Mariah Carey’s steamy bedroom tales
January 8th, 2007 under Mariah Carey, Thin Models Bad. [ Comments: none ]

Mariah Carey sleeps in a steam room. The diva says that there’s one room that didn’t appear on that infamous “Cribs” tour of her apartment, and that’s her bedroom, which she has turned into a water-logged chamber to keep her vocal chords humidified. “Literally I’ll have twenty humidifiers around the bed,” Carey told V magazine. “Basically it’s like sleeping in a steam room. The bed is all terry-cloth, the ceiling is pitched so the water can’t fall on my head, and it drips down to my side, and the TV is behind glass.” Carey, who is known for her provocative on-and-off-stage outfits, also discussed her sexy image — and blamed the media. “I think that a lot of women are just trying to live up to the stereotypes and to the standard that’s set on TV and in magazines, which is airbrushed women who weigh 3 pounds,” she said. “And it’s not fair. It’s not easy. But everybody gets really protective of me. They’re, like, ‘Be less sexy.’” She said that if she overdoes the sexy look “it’s not intentional — if you film my body a certain way, it’s gonna look like a certain way. But honestly, I’ve been the same way since I was a little kid. Like, I’m just emulating whatever’s on a magazine. “


Good for her for being proud of her body and going off on the too skinny trend!


Cameron Diaz thinks too thin Hollywood is tragic and sad
December 16th, 2006 under Thin Models Bad. [ Comments: none ]

Cameron Diaz has become the latest star to say she is worried about the influence of ultra-skinny celebrities. Her comments echo those of Billie Piper and Kate Winslet, who both criticised the phenomenon. The Hollywood actress, 34, tells ITV1 show Parkinson: "I think it’s terrifying, it’s tragic and sad. "I think that it’s a sickness, something that’s going on in someone’s head where their perspective is off. "We get ideals from images that we see and there certainly should be more responsibility put on those people who are putting those images out into the world. "Let’s be a little bit more responsible to what’s realistic." She adds: "I’m a skinny girl, so all my life all I have ever wanted to be is curvaceous and voluptuous, have everything falling out everywhere. "Some people … their perception and their perspective is completely askew."


She is so right and someone hopefully young Hollywood will listen to!


Billy Piper disgusted by too skinny actresses
December 11th, 2006 under Thin Models Bad. [ Comments: none ]

CURVY telly babe Billie Piper has launched an astonishing attack on Victoria Beckham for being too skinny. The former Doctor Who star claims stick-thin Posh is a lousy role model for star-struck young girls. Billie – who has battled anorexia – said she was "disgusted" at the example set by Posh and other Size Zero celebs. And she said curvy stars such as singer Shakira, 29, and Kelly Brook are much better role models. "Sniper" Billie, who has battled anorexia, rapped: "I think the whole Size Zero debate is disgusting. "Some models you see are tiny because that’s the way they were born. But then they’ll get the attention and that will start feeding a fire. "My sister, who is 13, looks amazing but is already worried about her figure. She loves Posh and I say: ‘Come on Ellie, she’s tiny. What’s wrong with Shakira? She’s sexy, curvy.’ But she has no interest." Billie’s own eating disorder was sparked when she was cruelly branded "fat" at the 1999 Brit Awards – and she is still terrified it could return. The last time she dramatically lost weight was after her split from husband Chris Evans, 40, in 2004. She told Glamour magazine: "It’s a constant worry to me – but it’s not a continual struggle any more. If it’s getting out of hand I get help but I’ve been all right for a couple of years now. "For me, the danger is when my life gets out of control. When I broke up with Chris I had it for a moment but I was able to nip it in the bud." Actress Kate Winslet, 31, also waded into the row yesterday by describing the skinny trend as "disturbing". She told BBC1’s Sunday AM: "There is an image of perfection that is getting thinner and thinner and it’s truly upsetting to me."
