figuring it out one day at a time
Dawn French would have been a huge chunk in any era. She's wider than she is tall.
tsk. sheathe those claws, yang!

I know who she is - durr. Still agree with what she said, though. The world would be a sad place if all the women were build like stick figures.
That's not the point in my view - she's trying to make out like her size would have been considered normal in Ruben's time (I won't even go into stylistic exaggeration). To me she is just as extreme as the size zero idiots - it's not healthy to be either. Yes, our culture promotes a ludicrously thin physique as "beauty"; yes, that promotion should be challenged; no, Dawn French shouldn't be the one to do it.I didn't realise she was known over there :)
Well, I took her comment to be tongue-in-cheek... stylistic exaggeration for a comedy effect, ie "kate moss as a paintbrush". I laughed :-)
Here here to curves! And that flawless skin. Nice... Even though maybe the skin was airbrushed but who cares!
That`s a yummy picture :) And the quote is fab as well, bringing justice to all of us curvy women out there :)
1218, of course it's photoshopped, unless she's been kept in a glass container all of her 17 years! LOL!F.Angel: totally. Totaaaaalllyyyy. Woohoo!
I have a friend who put the fashionable weight thing into an interesting perspective years ago:At one time, being abundantly curvy was sexy and desirable (along with pale white skin) because it was a sign that you were well off and could afford to eat well and not do hard manual labour-ie, you were from money or class. In theory, it also meant you were healthy.Now, the hyper-thin, gym taut body with a tan is the ideal-but what does it say? That you have money enough to eat well and lots of time on your hands to go to the gym and to tan. Same kind of ideal, expressed differently in an changed society.Interesting thought, no?
Crazy, Skryker. Sad, and crazy. I'm glad I'm poor. :D
