Supermodel Gisele Bundchen's Bogus Advice

I'm always on about how the truly amazonian beauty of Anita Ekberg, Jane Russell, Pam Greir and Sophia Loren and replaced it with, among other things, these fake retouched photos of very thin runway models hyped to look stately and voluptuous. The only tall, naturally statuesque women we see in the media are photographers creations and now this pretty but fraudulent millionairess is trying to speak out about eating disorders?

This is what I find very vexing about capitalism and post-modern airhead pop culture:

"Everybody knows that the norm in fashion is thin. But excuse me, there are people born with the right genes for this profession," Gisele said.

"Right" genes? So are you a "Klaus Barbie doll" too?

It also helps that your waist, ass and tits are photoshoped so you look like you have unattainable natural curves. Some retouching makes sense but come on? That's why the beautiful Gisele reeks of sour grapes because she's passing herself of as curvy AND giving out this bogus advice.
Take it from Super Amanda, Gisele couldn't be curvy if she swallowed a Rand McNally road atlas.

Hi Amanda,
Yeah, sorry, Gisele, to have those curvy tits, you either need a good surgeon or a natural blessing that will give you curves somewhere are else as well.

Lucky for some of us, we know the advice is colossal crap. The impressonable young ones, I'm not so sure about.

Hi Anne and thanks for your added insight. The whole point about the article is not to be a size queen or insult someone's body type it's about how the mainstream media and the modeling world keeps the real amazons down ;)

This flashed into my head when reading Giselle's remarks "Giselle: Spokeswoman for the Aryan movement"

Sounds harsh but those remarks about having the right genes
reminded me of the old books with the correct noses and eyes, lips, etc. To be the perfect specimen of Aryan Nazi.

But seriously,I agree with you wholeheartedly, of course! :) xoxo

I totally agree with you! When it comes down to it, what a lot of people don't realize is that curves don't really have to do with your breasts at all-- it's more with your waist-to-hip ratio. I have a friend with a curvy figure with an A-cup size, but her butt looks awesome (I'm jealous). The modeling industry is completely flawed and photoshopped till kingdom come. Giselle has fake breasts-- you can tell-- and crafty posing with the right clothes, makeup, and lighting can make a woman look a lot different.

I'd ignore Giselle for what it's worth.
