Growing up in the 80s and 90s, I was a HUGE fan of our supermodels. They really did all go by their first names – Cindy, Naomi, Christy, Linda – and they were freaking goddesses! Seriously, they had long legs, great curves, big hair, and they were so off the charts. Then the heroin chic craze came, and ever since it seems like our models have gotten smaller and smaller. After a while, you kind of become numb to it. Then you read an article one day where Tyra is saying that at the size she was when she hit it big, she would not have become a star today. Hold up— you mean Tyra Banks, one of the most successful supermodels of all time, would not have been a regular model if she were modeling today?? Yep. She was a size 4 back then, and, as we are well aware, most models (and let me say, I mean the high fashion models) are a size 0 (which, how is that even a size?? 0 is a none number). Anyway, ladies, let us please remember that we do not need to compare ourselves to the incredibly skinny women who grace today’s runways. I am not calling any of them names, or saying they are too skinny. For a lot of them, that is their natural size, and I won’t diss anyone for being too small or too large. But just take a moment to see that as a society, our priorities and body guidelines have gotten completely out of whack. We are not supposed to look like broomsticks. Women are supposed to have breasts and butts. Just throwing this thought out to the masses. thus endeth the rant!
