Why are fashion models so skinny?
I'm not just talking about recent models, though recently they've gotten so bad they've started calling it heroin chic, because the models look strung out on heroin.
This goes back a ways. I remember Twiggy, who was a bigshot model back in the 60's, in case any of you young whippersnappers don't remember. It was a big deal that this supermodel had no figure. Maybe it goes back even farther, but Twiggy is as far back as I go.
Things like this are supposed to come and go, but in this case they don't. It's been a very long time since the pendulum swung in favor of Reubenesque Beauties. Why is that?
For that matter, why is it that high fashion has gone in favor of ultraskinny women with no breasts, no buttocks, no legs, in fact no figure worth mentioning? Women starve themselves to match these "ideals", supposedly to attract men who (if asked) don't usually find that sort of woman attractive in the first place.
Men as a rule like women with breasts. Is this in doubt? If you don't believe me, just ask a few men at random and see what they say. The few you may find that don't mostly appreciate a good cleavage will be into butts or legs. In almost all cases fashion models won't normally come near the top of the list.
So why are high fashion models so skinny and shapeless?
Simple. Because most high fashion designers are gay men. By their standards a "really hot" body is a twelve year old boy.
