i dont know if any of you are familiar with this ad but when i saw this; i was repulsed by the picture but then; i was kinda glad that someone; namely the italian photographer oliviero toscani was brave enough to do something about this disease.
if u didnt think that it was horrible enough.. the 2nd picture would def shock your senses!
i mean how can ANYONE get so sick?!
how can anyone NOT eat just because she feels fat enough in her skinny jeans?
actually. i know people who just refuses to eat or say "i'm on a diet" just because she's gained a few pounds.
i used to be this way and i still am.but i'm not anorexic.
haha. if my dad were to see this; i think he'll freak.
but i know i wont be that sick to be like the poor girl; isabelle caro, 27.
so the question is;
who is responsible for this twisted image in the society?
even boys are getting anorexia, bulima or the adonis complex.
personally. i think the answer would have to be very obvious.
whether or not if anyone were to argue; i guess it would haf to be the way these patients are brought up; and of course; the celebs and models being plastered all over...
like from the recent article frm teen vogue- some girls are being subjected to teasing by their own moms when they getting a larger serving or 2nd serving for lunch or dinner!
i mean; shouldnt your own mom love u for who u are?!!
and since we spend a majority of our time at home;
i guess; it;ll have to be easier for them to eat lesser or not at all!
take tyra banks for example;
no doubt; she's a bigger sized model and on one of the episodes on the tyra banks show;
i remembered vividly; how she said she'll run to her mom and cry just because she was teased about her weight.
guess wht did her mom do?
she told her to wash up and get ready to go out to the diner for pizza and sundaes.
aint that cool?!
with models like kate moss, agyness deyn, gemma ward etc etc around..
wearing all those fabulous clothes and strutting their stuff on the runway; how can any girls not be jealous of them?!
size00-2 is like. the norm and like what was written in the devil wears prada, size 6 is the new 14!! how twisted is that?!! i gta admit. when i saw that; i was furious! and then ashamed. i'm an 8.
lindsay lohan used to look so healthy in freaky friday and mean girls; she's had thighs. then; on herbie and all her subsequent movies; she's visibly skinnier and her thighs are like non existent.
hilary duff- i have a friend who's teased her about her supposedly "corn beefed" arm in the cinderella story and now; she's leaner and skinnier!!!
what about our dear mary kate?! she's been thin as pin ever since she was little and she got checked for anorexia too!!
what exactly is the RIGHT size?
in this part of the society where thin= beautiful..
even normal and healthy girls also wna be part of this thin game.
when will curvier models of the 90s like christy turlington be in vogue again?
will we ever accept a totally different kinda girl on our magazines?
it's time that something's gta be done about this.
dont you think?!
of course; having said all these; i guess my model of the week would have to be christy turlington
she's one of the earlier super models and she's THE ONE with the multiyear contract with Maybelline and has famously said
maybe she's born with it
(she;s also been with chanel and calvin klien)
i've used christy for this week not because she's curvy but because of wht she believed in.
she's such a healthy person having been a yoga enthust before anyone caught the bug in the 90s, been the face for anti tobacco campaign and had scaled mt. kilimanjoro; one of the tallest free standing mountain in the world!!
she aint just a pretty face from walnut creek, california huh?
i think that she's such an amazing person who embraces the gift of life;
i honestly wna ask for out for tea someday and ask her about her thoughts of some of the issues we're facing like the anorexia nervosa problem we have on hand.
i love her!
and i hope u do too!
