Ask people to define what a model is and they'd tell you this: Skinny with long legs!
However, with Kate Upton's recent rise to fame, this definition will probably confuse many. And so did a website called Skinny Gossip, who did not just express its 'confusion' over the 20-year-old swimsuit model, but her jealousy frustration, calling her: “[A] little piggie with huge thighs, NO waist, big fat floppy boobs, terrible body definition.”
The anonymous author later continued her rants with: “”Is this what American women are ‘striving’ for now?” the site’s anonymous blogger Skinny Gurl goes on to ask. “The lazy, lardy look?… [Kate's popularity] makes me wonder how much further our plus-sized fixation is going to go.
Now isn't that just mean?
Seriously, the modelling world, in fact, the whole of media these days flaunt super skinny women to define beauty - like outright telling you to stop eating to be beautiful. Now here's this lady telling us to embrace our 'natural' curves and not starve ourselves, and you condemn that?
Really! I don't think that's lazy. That's simply being proud and happy of your body. What's lazy? Those model-wanna-be's who desperately go on liposuction or take a rib off their hip to get that perfect little waist. I think it’s high-time people change their perspective on what’s sexy and what’s model-y. It is very sad and frustrating to raise our kids thinking they have to be SKINNY to be pretty!
Skinny or fat, this Kate Upton gives more inspiration to plus-sized girls like her. So whether or not she pass model standards – if there is – SO WHAT?!
